NHL notebook: Red Wings defenseman Quincey breaks cheekbone

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey will need surgery after fracturing a cheekbone Friday night in Edmonton.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Saturday that Quincey flew home to Detroit after he was injured. Quincey was hurt when a shot hit the shaft of his stick and caromed into his face.

Quincey has a goal and an assist in 26 games this season.

Hall joins Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes picked up forward Adam Hall off waivers. The team announced that Hall was available to play Saturday against the Lightning — the team that placed him on waivers.

The 32-year-old Hall had four assists in 20 games with the Lightning this season. He spent the 2007-08 season with the Penguins, scoring two goals and four assists in 46 games.

Blues make moves

The St. Louis Blues activated rookie Vladimir Tarasenko off injured reserve from a concussion but lost another forward when T.J. Oshie was placed on IR.

The 21-year-old Tarasenko has six goals and six assists in 17 games. Oshie sustained an apparent shoulder injury making a check in the second period Tuesday against San Jose.
