TSN Article: Could NHLers Be Fired If They Get Hurt Playing?

I wrote an article for entitled, Legal Look: Could NHLers Be Fired If They Get Hurt Playing?.

Here's an excerpt:
To date during the lockout, about 200 NHL players have gone abroad to play hockey. Players like Claude Giroux (German Elite league), Evgeni Malkin (KHL) and Matt Duchene (Finnish Elite league) have gone overseas.
We are, however, also seeing players get hurt. Guys like New Jersey Devils defenceman Anton Volchenkov, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask and Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek have suffered injuries. 
So here's the question: is there a risk that players could effectively be fired by a team if they get seriously hurt?
