The news is out, all over town. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is skating and has all of his fingers and toes!
- Nuge: “I think I’m going to be on the ice with the guys right away. I’ll probably wear a yellow [no contact] jersey to start. It’s feeling good and I’m just excited to get back here and get going. It feels good right now, but I know it has to heal and I have to get my strength back. There are going to be a lot of discussions with the doctor and the medical staff over the next few weeks. I’ve just got to make sure it’s 100 percent before I go out there.”
If you live in Edmonton, chances are you know some of the stories going around about the Nuge’s injury this summer. Hey, I’ve been hearing these kinds of rumors for decades, and absolutely knew in my heart of hearts he’d be fine.
Still nice to hear it from the young man, though.
