STLTODAY.COM:  St. Louis Blues left wing Jaden Schwartz will be sidelined at least four weeks after suffering a left-elbow injury in practice on Thursday.  With the regular season starting on Oct. 12, he could only miss the first nine games of the schedule. 

SPECTOR’S NOTE: This is the second straight year Schwartz has suffered a significant injury during practice. Last fall, he missed 49 games with a fractured ankle.

DALLAS MORNING NEWS: Dallas Stars center Mattias Janmark underwent knee surgery on Friday and is expected to be sidelined for five-to-six months. Janmark suffered from a genetic condition called Osteochondritis dissecans, and there’s about an 80 percent chance of a full recovery.

THE BOSTON GLOBE:  The Boston Bruins invited defenseman Christian Ehrhoff to training camp on a tryout basis. Ehrhoff had a solid performance in the World Cup of Hockey skating with Team Europe. One of his teammates was Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, who may have had a hand in Ehrhoff getting a tryout offer.
