Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux will get $21 million as part of the team's settlement of its 1998 bankruptcy.

The Thrashers placed goalie Kari Lehtonen on the injured list Friday after he hurt his groin in Atlanta's first win of the season.

The team said he strained his groin, but in a different area than a similar injury that kept him out for more than two months in 2005.
