Before Kyle Turris could skate with other locked-out NHLers and Carleton Ravens Thursday, he had to go shopping for something he had not purchased himself in 10 years: A stick.

He wound up getting a wooden Sherwood Paul Coffey model with a big curve. It cost him $35.

“I have sticks coming in (Friday) night,” said Turris, the Senators centre who returned Sunday from a two-month stint with Karpat Oulu in the Finnish SM-Liiga. “I wasn’t spending $300 on a stick I was going to break today.”
