Fraser updates his status

Here’s the update from Colin Fraser, who has yet to participate in a full practice after undergoing foot surgery during the offseason, as part of his highly disputed trade from Edmonton. Fraser has been doing conditioning skating since Saturday but said he’s making progress…

FRASER: “It’s good. It’s coming. I’ve skated for four days now, and I’m going for a practice today with all the young guys, the non-game guys. It will give me a good sense, a good feel for the puck and maybe some actual drills, as opposed to just the bag skating out there. So I’m getting in shape, but I’ve just got to get my hands back and feel comfortable.”

Question: Is that all it is now? Are you OK with the foot now?

FRASER: “Yeah, it feels good. I wouldn’t call it 100 percent, but it’s close. There’s no pain, by any means, but there’s maybe a little discomfort. It doesn’t quite feel normal, if that makes sense, but it’s not stopping me from doing anything. Talking to the doctor, everything is OK to go ahead. I have no contact, but everything is OK to go ahead and practice.”
