NHL Notes

1. LECAVALIER HAS SURGERY

The Tampa Bay Lightnings announced on Monday that their star veteran forward Vincent Lecavalier will be out of action for approximately four to five weeks after undergoing surgery.
Lecavalier who scored three goals and nine points in his first 14 games suffered a broken right hand on November 11 against the Washington Capitals. Dr. Tom Graham who did the surgery at the Cleveland Clinic deemed it a success. During the operation a plate and screws were used to stabilize the fracture.

2. FLAMES SUTTER APOLOGIZES FOR GETTING ARRESTED

It’s been a tough year for the Sutters and that includes young Brett Sutter who on Monday issued an apology for getting arrested last week when he punched a taxi driver in the face outside a Scottsdale Arizona bar. “I want to apologize to my family, my friends, our fans and the entire Flames family for what took place this past Wednesday night,” Sutter whose father is Flames GM Darryl said. In four games this year Sutter has registered only one assist.

3. MARKOV SUFFERS A MAJOR SETBACK

Anndrei Markov has once again suffered another injury. After missing 10 games earlier this season the 31 year-old defenceman who has only played seven games this year was hurt in Sunday’s 6-2 win against the Carolina Hurricanes. While no details are being given out there are rumours that he could miss up to three months. Montreal management is calling it a lower body injury and said that Markov is still undergoing tests.
