Silver Nuggets: Foligno out two weeks, Ruutu not suspended

Here are some Ottawa Senators stories for your reading pleasure:

  • Nick Foligno will have scope surgery on his knee tomorrow morning, and will miss about two weeks. He apparently was injured in the game against Toronto, though I don't know when it happened. (Sens Twitter)
  • Jarkko Ruutu has avoided suspension, and just received a fine for his hit to the head on Patrick Kaleta last night. (Score)
  • Bryan Murray says that despite the Spezza injury, he's not expecting to make a move due to salary cap restrictions. Says the only way he could make a move is if the other team was willing to take some salary, which is a euphemism for "Kovalev or Cheechoo." (Slam)
  • Our friends in the Sens blogosphere have some recaps for you on last night's win: (Another Ottawa Senators Blog) (Black Aces) (Sens Chirp)
  • Fanhouse looks at how the Jason Spezza injury will impact the Senators. Summary: a lot. (Fanhouse)
  • Cyril Leeder announces some new deals to try and put fans into the seats at Scotiabank Place. Most deal with season ticketholders, though, and not the single seat tickets that most of us rely on. (Citizen)
  • The coach of the Denver University Pioneers expresses a bit of frustration about Team Canada's decision to bring Patrick Wiercioch to camp only to send him away before tryouts due to injury. (Denver Post)
