Canadiens captain Gionta cleared for contact

Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta has been cleared for contact in his return form a torn left biceps tendon sustained last season.

The wing skated Wednesday on the fifth line with Michael Bournival and Martin St. Pierre.

Gionta was injured during the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Ottawa Senators. He had surgery May 10.

Forward George Parros and defenseman Douglas Murray did not practice.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
