Roenick update

Center Jeremy Roenick is back at his home in Phoenix resting with his family and said yesterday that his concussion symptoms are beginning to subside.

Roenick said Sunday that when he woke up, he felt better than he has since being struck on the jaw by a puck on Feb. 12, suffering a fractured jaw. He said yesterday that he again felt better.

"I very, very excited about it," Roenick said. "I still can't eat, but that's 4 weeks away." Roenick underwent a scan of his brain stem Friday but had not learned the results as of late yesterday afternoon.

Roenick plans to return to Philadelphia tomorrow and is hoping to visit a concussion specialist in Montreal on Thursday. Roenick said that if he can arrange it, he will travel from Montreal to Ottawa to be with the Flyers when they play the Senators Thursday night.
