The Courier-Post is reporting that Philadelphia Flyers right wing Matt Read, who has been sidelined since late last month with an upper body injury, is on the ice Monday practicing in a white, contact-allowed jersey, at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J.
Read suffered torn rib cage muscles on Feb. 20 against the Pittsburgh Penguins and was expected to miss six weeks.
At the time of his injury, Read had seven goals and 13 points in 18 games for the Flyers.
I don't think today was my most solid game that I've had, some rebounds here and there. I know there's a lot of work to do, not every game is going to go as good as these last few. I've just got to make sure I keep working and keep trying to get better.
