Calgary Flames defenceman Bryan Marchment went for a MRI yesterday on his injured knee.

Marchment left midway through Friday night's game after a knee-on-knee collision with Maple Leafs forward Jason Allison.

Marchment was assessed a two-minute penalty for kneeing, while Allison escaped injury.

"He was coming in a couple of inches below my knee, but I didn't hurt him, he hurt himself," Allison said.

Flames general manager/head coach Darryl Sutter said he had no update on how long he expected Marchment to be out.

"We're waiting on the MRI but I don't think it's good, though," Sutter said.

"He's not a guy that limps off the ice."

POHL SENT BACK DOWN

A day after sitting rookie forward John Pohl to accommodate the return of Jason Allison, the Leafs returned Pohl to the Toronto Marlies.

Pohl had a goal in five games with the Leafs and returns with his scoring lead for the Marlies intact, 34 points in 30 American Hockey League games.

"He played well here, but we're fine in terms of the (23-man) roster and injuries (Mariusz Czerkawski as the extra forward)," Leafs general manager John Ferguson said last night.

FATHER, SONS AND HOCKEY

The fathers of Leafs forward Darcy Tucker and Oilers captain Ryan Smyth joined Walter Gretzky for last night's opening faceoff, as part of Hockey Day in Canada ceremonies at Rexall Place. Dale Tucker and Jim Smyth both wore their sons' respective sweaters.

Fathers and sons from an Edmonton armed forces mechanized brigade were given ice time at Rexall Place earlier in the day for a shinny game and also participated in the faceoff.

Some members of the garrison are slated to serve peace keeping duties in Afghanistan next month.

DOMI PASSES BAUN ... AGAIN

Winger Tie Domi passed Bob Baun to join the top-10 Leafs in games played last night with his 740th appearance. Incorrect information from the Leafs listed him as passing Baun in Friday's game in Calgary.
