Marian Gaborik progressing (Update: back skating)

An update on Gabby

Marian Gaborik, sidelined with a separated left shoulder since the Oct. 15 game against the Leafs, had platelet-rich plasma therapy Tuesday and is progressing with his recovery.

Gaborik, 28, had said the PRP therapy, which involves collecting a concentrate of a patient's platelets and white blood cells, mixed it with an activating agent and re-injecting it into damaged tissue, helped repair previous groin and hamstring injuries. It is not believed that a second treatment will be necessary

Gaborik has been out a week. Original prognosis was 2-4 weeks.
