Injured Islander Andrew Ladd could return to practice as early as Wednesday, according to General Manager Lou Lamoriello.
Ladd has been out since leaving an inter-squad scrimmage on Sept. 16 and was placed on retroactive IR on Tuesday morning.
Ladd has skated several times on his own since suffering the injury, but there is still no official timetable for his return to game action.
"Ladd has been skating and could resume practice tomorrow," Lamoriello said. "We'll know more of how he feels first thing in the morning. Odds are he'll be practicing with the team."
