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.
