WINNIPEG - Patrik Berglund joined the team on the road and participated in the morning skate Tuesday in Winnipeg.
Berglund has not played a game this season after injuring his shoulder training in the summer. He had surgery in late August and was to be re-evaluated four months later, which puts him right on schedule.
“It feels good,” Berglund said of the injury. “There’s not going to be any body contact until they say it’s OK, but that’s when the real test begins. So far, the surgery went well and I’ve been doing the rehab and all the things I have to do to make a full recovery.
"So far, so good.”
“He looks really fresh,” Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said after the morning skate. “It’s amazing when you see a player that comes and looks fresh, compared to the other guys who have gone through the campaign already. He’s not that far away. Hopefully sometime in the new year, in January, he’s going to come back and I think he’s going to give us a big boost.”
