McQuaid 'not bad,' Kampfer skates

Adam McQuaid has a sprained neck, but is okay, according to's Joe Haggerty.

Haggerty spoke with both Peter Chiarelli and Claude Julien, and tweeted the following:

"Peter Chiarelli just told me its "not bad" injury wAdam McQuaid which is good news. No word on whether it's a concussion or not as of yet... Adam McQuaid has "sprained neck" according to Claude Julien but he's come out okay in every test he's undergone thus far. He dodged a bullet."

Haggerty also reported that, "Per Claude Julien, Steve Kampfer skated on the ice for the 1st time today while coming back from a knee injury. He's still "a long way away.""

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while spring training is ramping up in a big way down in Florida.

*The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to wear their great, green, old school St. Pat’s sweaters around St. Patrick’s Day this season.

*Jonathan Quick is on the ice and participating in hockey activity, but isn’t quite ready to return for the Los Angeles Kings.

*This is one of the best things you’ll see today with Vladimir Tarasenko making the 11th birthday celebration for a special little girl.

*The Edmonton Oilers could potentially make a lot of moves at the NHL trade deadline, and unsurprisingly, there is quite the call for them to dump Benoit Pouliot after that bad contract they signed him to a couple of years ago.

*Lyle Richardson is predicting the biggest buyers at the 2017 NHL trade deadline and the Bruins are not among the nine teams listed.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) James Mirtle goes 1-on-1 with Toronto Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello a wide range of subjects for the Athletic up in Toronto.

*Tommy Wingels continues to fight for inclusion in hockey even as he’s gone from the San Jose Sharks to the Ottawa Senators this season.

*For something completely different: A perfect pool trick shot video will blow your mind and probably get a few pool tables ruined with people trying to recreate it.
