Versteeg set to make preseason debut Thursday

Florida Panthers forward Kris Versteeg has been medically cleared to return to game action for the first time since tearing his ACL in March.

He rehabbed extensively during the summer.

"I've talked to a lot of guys who have had it done like [Tomas] Kopecky and [Scottie] Upshall, you just trust their opinion, more so you got to trust your doctor, trust your surgeon what he did to you is going to make you better first, and understand that and go through your physical therapy," Versteeg told the Florida Sun-Sentinel. "The staff here in Florida did a tremendous job with me the first two months, then I went home [to Lethrbridge, Alberta] and worked with a guy named Tim back home and my own trainer and they got me to where I am today."

Jagr probably won't play in Devils' preseason finale

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr told reporters after practicing Wednesday that he probably won't play Thursday in the team's preseason finale against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I'm probably not going to play [Thursday] only because I didn't have a practice with my teammates," said Jagr, who has skated on his own and with a group of Devils on Tuesday who weren't playing in that evening's game in Philadelphia.

Jagr, who left the Devils' first practice Sept. 12 with a lower-body injury, said the final decision belongs to the New Jersey coaching staff, but that he wouldn't be concerned about not getting into a preseason game and feels practices will be enough to get him up to speed.
