Sharks lose Curtis Brown to injury
January 20, 2008

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -Sharks center Curtis Brown went on injured reserve Sunday, and San Jose recalled left wing Tomas Plihal from the minors to replace him.

Brown, a defense-minded forward with a small role in San Jose, injured his hand in the first period of the Sharks' 6-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. He has a goal and three assists in 24 games this season.

Plihal, a 24-year-old Czech forward, made his NHL debut in three games with San Jose last season. He spent the first two months of this season on the Sharks' injured list with a shoulder problem before scoring 11 points in 20 games with their AHL affiliate in Worcester.

Crosby goes on injured list, Pens bring up 3 players
January 21, 2008

PITTSBURGH (AP) -Sidney Crosby was placed on injured reserve Monday, a move that allowed the Pittsburgh Penguins to add an extra forward for their final two games before the All-Star break.
   
Crosby injured his right ankle during the Penguins' 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday and is expected to be out at least a month and possibly longer.

Because there is swelling in his ankle, Crosby won't be re-examined by team doctors until Tuesday.

The preliminary diagnosis is a high ankle sprain, an injury that occurs in the ligaments that connect the tibia and fibula in the lower leg. Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has been out since Dec. 6 with the same injury and is not yet ready to return.

When Fleury was hurt, it was estimated he would return in six to eight weeks.

The injury will keep Crosby, the leading vote-getter in the All-Star balloting, out of Sunday's All-Star game in Atlanta.

The Penguins recalled forwards Chris Minard, Tim Brent and Jonathan Filewich from their Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) farm club. Forward Adam Hall (groin) also went on the injured list and defenseman Ryan Lannon was returned to Wilkes-Barre after not playing in any games during his two weeks with Pittsburgh.

Minard, signed by the Penguins in July, has played professionally since 2002 but has never been in the NHL. He led Wilkes-Barre with 17 goals. Brent, who played in 15 games with Anaheim last season, was Wilkes-Barre's leading scorer with 35 points, including seven goals.

Filewich, a third-round draft pick in 2003, had seven goals and 10 assists at Wilkes-Barre, a falloff from his 56-point season there a year ago.

Hurricanes recall Grahame, send Leighton to minors
January 21, 2008

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes switched out backup goalies Monday, recalling John Grahame from Albany of the American Hockey League and assigning Michael Leighton to the team's top minor league affiliate.

The 32-year-old Grahame played in 13 games with the Hurricanes before being sent down nearly three weeks ago, posting a 4-6-1 record with a 3.83 goals-against average.

The 26-year-old Leighton was 1-1-0 with a 2.66 GAA in three games with Carolina after being recalled on Jan. 3. Sending Leighton to the minors gives him a chance to get some work. He played little behind No. 1 goaltender Cam Ward.
