No. But lol at the attempt. There is no way one's body and senses can be "as intact" in their 40s, or soon to be 50s, as they were in one's 20s. It would probably take him atleast 3 years of dedicated training to get back to a physical level he would be confident enough to jump on the ice at. By then he's 50, everyone around him is younger, faster, bigger, stronger, and sharper having played uninterrupted for years previous... Bet you he would still look decent skating around in practice though. Or against the Asian League.
