DALLAS - A little over a week after undergoing surgery on his right thumb, Petr Mrazek is already back on the ice.
The Carolina Hurricanes' goaltender, who made the trip to Dallas, skated at the conclusion of the team's morning skate on Thursday.
Mrazek worked through a handful of skating drills with Canes goaltending coach Paul Schonfelder and then finished his on-ice workout by taking some light shots to his pads while not utilizing his stick.
Mrazek, who has missed the Canes' last five games, said he "felt good" after his first day back on the ice.
The 28-year old netminder owns a 2-1-0 record, a 0.99 goals-against average, .a 955 save percentage and two shutouts in four appearances this season.
