Marc Staal came off the ice sweating and smiling today, going through one of his hardest skates yet along with extras Sean Avery, Erik Christensen and fellow injured player Wojtek Wolski after the regular portion of the morning skate, which he also participated in.
Staal said he feels stronger on his skates and that he has more endurance as he continues to build to a return from post-concussion symptoms.
“I feel like a hockey player again,” said Staal, before I asked whether he’s at the point where he’s not worrying about a recurrence of headaches. “It’s definitely getting a lot better. I feel better through the whole workout. Afterwords, it doesn’t feel like a could following me around. Still, in the back of my mind, I’m wondering when or if it might hit me.”
Staal might change his helmet to a new Bauer helmet for more protection. He has spoken to Brad Richards about his concussion from last season.
