OTTAWA, Ontario -- The Senators will be without Magnus Arvedson, one of their leading scorers, for 4-6 weeks because of broken bones in his left foot.
Arvedson, who took a shot from Carolina Hurricanes defenseman David Tanabe in the first period Thursday night, led the team with nine goals and was third in points with 16 going into Saturday night's game against Florida.
"I don't even know what to say," Arvedson said. "It's tough for me to even talk about it."
Arvedson missed 35 games last year because of abdominal surgery after he was slammed into an open bench door in Philadelphia. This season he looked like he was on the verge of his best season.
"What bothers me is that I really felt good about the way this year was going," Arvedson said.
Also, defenseman Sami Salo is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury.
BRUINS-DUCKS TRADE: Boston acquired defenseman Patrick Traverse and left wing Andrei Nazarov from Anaheim for center Samuel Pahlsson. "With Kyle McLaren's injury status unknown and Peter Popovic breaking his foot, we have to see if we can shore up the defense," Bruins general manager Mike O'Connell said.
CANADIENS: A Montreal radio station backtracked on its report the team was poised to fire general manager Rejean Houle and coach Alain Vigneault today.
Team spokesman Donald Beauchamp said the Canadiens "strongly deny" the report.
ISLANDERS: Kenny Jonsson, who never seemed comfortable in the leadership role since he became captain to start last season, concurred with the organization's strong suggestion that he relinquish his "C."
"I think it's better for myself and my teammates that I concentrate on hockey instead of outside things," Jonsson said. "Some games I really couldn't get it off my mind."
The Isles will use rotating alternate captains.
