Gagne update, and Lombardi in Florida
Simon Gagne, out since Dec. 26 because of concussion issues, continues to do conditioning skating and drills, but Gagne said today that he didn’t know when he might be able to return to full-team practices.
GAGNE: “No, not for now. I talked to the doctor last night, and then the team went on the road so he said to keep doing the same thing this week. Now, I’ll see him again tonight and see what the plan is going to be for the next week.’’
Question: So you’re kind of week-to-week right now?
GAGNE: “It’s week by week. Usually I see him once a week, and then we decide what we’re going to do. Right now, there’s not much going on. It’s just pretty much the same as last week, and we’ll see from there, what the doctor is going to say tonight.’’
Also, Dean Lombardi, in Florida for the general managers’ meetings, had a brief interview with NHL Network about the playoff race and the addition of Jeff Carter. Click below for the clip…
