A U.S. federal judge ruled a subpoena can be issued compelling former Vancouver Canucks owner John McCaw Jr. to testify in Steve Moore's lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi and the team.

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice asked the U.S. court this year to subpoena the Seattle-based McCaw.

Moore's lawyer, Tim Danson, says he hopes McCaw will accept the rulings of the Ontario Superior Court and the U.S. District Court and appear as ordered at the trial slated to begin in September.

Moore is suing Bertuzzi and the Canucks for $38 million for a 2004 on-ice hit that ended Moore's career.

Then a Colorado Avalanche player, Moore suffered a concussion and three fractured vertebrae.

Rangers backup goalie out

Rangers backup goalie Cam Talbot was unavailable for the Stanley Cup Final opener because of an unspecified injury.

Journeyman goalie David Leneveu backed up Henrik Lundqvist against the Kings on Wednesday night.

Talbot appeared in relief of Lundqvist twice during the Eastern Conference playoffs, mostly recently in Game 5 against Montreal on May 27.

But he missed practice last weekend with an injury, and coach Alain Vigneault says he's not ready to play if needed.

Around the league

The Devils re-signed defenseman Marek Zidlicky to a one-year deal. Last season, he had 12 goals and 30 assists in 81 games. ... The Red Wings agreed to a three-year contract with coach Jeff Blashill to lead their AHL team.
