NHL notebook: Ducks veterans diagnosed with mumps

• Ducks veterans Corey Perry and Francois Beauchemin were diagnosed with mumps. Beauchemin has been hospitalized to receive intravenous fluids, but he has improved, Ducks medical director Craig Milhouse said. Perry has been cleared of the disease and is free to resume working out. The Ducks don’t know how the players contracted the disease, but the entire team will receive vaccinations as a precaution.

• The Blues activated forward T.J. Oshie from injured reserve in time to return to the lineup for Thursday night’s game against the Predators. Oshie missed seven games with a concussion.

• The Canucks recalled defenseman Bobby Sanguinetti from the American Hockey League. Sanguinetti, 26, has appeared in 45 games with the Hurricanes and Rangers, collecting six points (two goals, four assists).

• A subsidiary of the Oilers sued the owner of the junior league Erie Otters for $4.5 million. An Oilers spokesman said the NHL team isn’t commenting on the lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Erie. The Oilers’ subsidiary, Ontario Major Junior Hockey Corp., said it loaned Otters owner Sherry Bassin $4.2 million as part of a never-completed deal to buy the Otters. The subsidiary planned to move the team to Hamilton, Ontario. The lawsuit seeks repayment plus interest. Bassin told the Erie Times-News, which first reported the lawsuit, he doesn’t expect the lawsuit to affect plans to sell the team to one of two possible buyers.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
