Gagne, Parse both skating

It’s a big day for Scott Parse, who is skating today for the first time since he underwent early-season hip surgery. Parse got checked out by a doctor in Nashville last week and got cleared to start skating. There’s no indication as to when Parse might be able to play again, but it seems unlikely to happen this season.

Simon Gagne continues to skate, as he recovers from concussion symptoms. Gagne said he will be evaluated again this weekend but doesn’t yet know when he might be able to participate in full-team practices. Incidentally, Gagne said that he had the same hip surgery Parse had done (in the summer of 2006).
