TORONTO (AP) Tyler Bozak and David Clarkson both missed the first practice day of Toronto Maple Leafs training camp with lower-body injuries, and coach Randy Carlyle didn't say when he expects either player to be ready.

Bozak and Clarkson suffered the injuries in pre-training camp workouts, according to Carlyle, who said they made "small amounts of improvement" from Friday to Saturday.

After the players were deemed less than 100 percent by doctors after Thursday's medical testing, the Leafs held them out of on-ice testing and are being cautious.

VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux will miss at least two weeks after sustaining a lower-body injury on the first day of training camp.

The Flyers did specify the injury on Friday.


Injured D Doughty misses first practice

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty missed the first practice of training camp Friday with an upper-body injury.

Crosby practices as Penguins camp opens

PITTSBURGH (AP) Looks as if Sidney Crosby is a pretty quick healer.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star and reigning NHL MVP practiced Friday, a day after the team announced he would be held out of the early portion of training camp as a precaution for an unspecified minor injury.


Kings back at camp eager to defend title

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) After a summer crammed with Stanley Cup celebrations across the globe, the Los Angeles Kings are back at work with their eyes on some rarefied goals.

The Kings went through their first workouts of training camp Friday as they prepare for their run at a third NHL title in four seasons. Even with just 14 weeks off from hockey, the Kings are rejuvenated by the thought of making even more history.


Stars' Peverley still not practicing

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley is doing off-ice workouts but still is unable to skate with the team six months after an irregular heartbeat led to him collapsing on the bench during a game.

General manager Jim Nill says doctors will continue to monitor Peverley, who was with the team Friday for the start of training camp.


Trotz moves Ovechkin back to left wing

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) As if he knew the question was coming, Alex Ovechkin smiled when asked what his new coach wants him to work on.

"On back-check?" Ovechkin said.


Sharks sport new vibe after collapse

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) A tumultuous offseason that featured a rehash of a historic playoff collapse, talk of rebuilding and questions about the leadership on and off the ice has mercifully come to an end for the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks returned to practice Friday for the opening of training camp, looking to put that playoff loss to Los Angeles in the past and build a new kind of team even if it contains most of the same players.


Wild goalie situation still in flux

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild have started the season with the same big question as they finished the last one: Who can they count on in the net?

As training camp began, the Wild took their first step toward trying to build off the potential displayed last spring with their upset of Colorado in the playoffs. To advance past the second round this time, stability in the crease will be critical. So the fact that Niklas Backstrom was the only goalie with significant NHL experience under contract and on the ice for the first day of practice Friday was not the most promising sign.


Bruins eye redemption for falling short

WILMINGTON, Mass. (AP) The Boston Bruins conducted their first on-ice training camp practices for the new season on Friday, and they're already thinking about redemption.

The Bruins want to atone for the way last season ended. They had the best record in the NHL during the regular season with 117 points, then fell short of the Stanley Cup by losing in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs to the archrival Montreal Canadiens.
