Jagr leaves game with lower-body injury

Jagr has two assists in five games since signing as a free agent with Calgary at the end of training camp.
Fowler goes down with injury
Anaheim Ducks defensemen Cam Fowler, who missed the opening round of last season's playoffs with a right knee injury, appeared to be favoring the same knee after absorbing a hit and going into the boards in the first period of a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night. Fowler, who signed an eight-year, $52-million contract extension this offseason, skated off the ice with the help of teammates and did not return.
Rask out with concussion
Boston goalie Tuukka Rask is sidelined because of a concussion, and Anton Khudobin got the start Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks. General manager Don Sweeney said Thursday that Rask sustained the concussion during practice Wednesday. The Bruins also activated right wing David Backes (diverticulitis) and placed center Ryan Spooner on injured reserve with a tear in his right groin. Spooner was hurt last week at Las Vegas and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks.
Weber placed on injured reserve
The Nashville Predators have recalled forward Frederick Gaudreau from the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals and placed defenseman Yannick Weber on injured reserve. The Predators announced the moves Tuesday before hosting the Colorado Avalanche.Weber was hit in the head by Dallas center Martin Hanzal in a 4-1 Nashville win last week.
Jets place Perreault on IR
The Winnipeg Jets placed forward Mathieu Perreault on injured reserve Monday with a lower-body injury. Perreault exited in the third period of Saturday night's 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Perreault, 29, has one goal, two assists and four penalty minutes in five games this season.
Eriksson leaves with injury
Left winger Loui Eriksson left the Vancouver Canucks' game against the Calgary Flames early in the first period Saturday. Eriksson appeared to hurt his knee after crashing into the back of the Flames' net at 2:57 of the first period. He limped off the ice and headed to the bench. After sitting on the bench for several minutes, Eriksson skated briefly then headed to the dressing room.
Oilers without Draisaitl
The Edmonton Oilers will be without one of their big guns when they host the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. After Friday's practice, coach Todd McLellan confirmed that center Leon Draisaitl, who finished eighth in the NHL scoring race last season with 77 points, will not play Saturday. "He didn't practice and won't play tomorrow," said McLellan. "That's all we know for now."
Coyotes place Perlini on IR
The Arizona Coyotes placed Brendan Perlini on injured reserve and recalled fellow forward Emerson Etem from Tucson of the American Hockey League on Wednesday. Perlini sustained an upper-body injury during the first period of Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.
Flyers acquire goaltender
The Philadelphia Flyers acquired goaltender Dustin Tokarski from the Anaheim Ducks on Monday in exchange for future considerations. The Flyers promptly assigned Tokarski to Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League. The 28-year-old Saskatchewan native has posted a 10-12-5 mark with one shutout, a 2.84 goals-against average and .904 save percentage in 34 career NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens and Ducks.
