Ducks left wing Matt Beleskey revealed Thursday that he has a broken left thumb, suffered in a fight in the team's preseason finale Sept. 28 against San Jose, and will be sidelined “a week or so, two weeks,” he said. Beleskey played in the Ducks' first two games and even had an X-ray taken at the team's first stop in Colorado last week but it didn't show the break. Pain “kept on lingering,” Beleskey said. He was scratched for Sunday's game at Winnipeg. Another X-ray Wednesday in Anaheim found the fracture and he was put in a cast up to the wrist.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + If Sidney Crosby can be said to do anything quietly, he is quietly having a sensational start. Through Sunday he led the NHL in scoring with 17 points, including at least one point in all eight games the Penguins had played. That's a personal best to start a season for Crosby. + St. Louis forward David Backes scored six goals in the Blues' first seven games, matching his total in last season's 48-game schedule.

When the Kings acquired forward Fredrik Modin from Columbus last Wednesday for a conditional seventh-round pick in the June draft, they never specified the condition. Here's the scoop: The Blue Jackets will get the pick if the Kings win the Stanley Cup but will get nothing if the Kings don't win Lord Stanley's trophy this season. The Kings probably won't have to surrender that pick. But they will have a shot in the playoffs -- and Modin will have the satisfaction of knowing his goal and assist in a 6-0 rout of his former team Monday at Staples Center helped carry the Kings closer to their first postseason berth since the 2001-02 season.
