I don't think the no contact rules apply when it comes to players who are injured. I know Kesler works closely with Canucks in his rehabilitation. I think the players even get paid until they are off IR.

Lots of positive comments from Billington.

Barrie: "Very focused. Ahead of a lot of players in terms of what he knows he has to do away from the rink."

Sgarbossa: "His compete level is good. Strong player.

Siemens: "Hes challenged himself to work on the areas he needs to work on and has been diligent about it.

Elliott: "I think hes on the right side of the curve if you will. Its going to work out just fine. Hes a good evaluator of his own play. Hell keep learning.

I doubt that the guy in the comments section will respond to me but he sounds exactly like the type of guy that you see on the official Avs board.

Dater said that it wasn't positive or negative news, but Hishon skating on a regular day-by-day basis in Lake Erie is huge positive news to me, IMO.

Wasn't Hishon skating before as well and then he had symptoms again which made him stop skating or am I wrong?

Yea that was the report. I'm only going to start being optimistic when he actually plays his first pro game, and then really only hopeful that it hasn't ruined his career when he puts together a couple of reasonably healthy NHL seasons.

Just too many "feeling good" or "haven't felt this good in a long time" or "symptom free" comments regarding Hishon, or Mueller, or Forsberg with his own injuries to see this as anything to be optimistic about.

Fantastic news, hopefully this was the last time he had to fight with the concussion demons.

Holy crap for real Foppa!?

That's great, and for Hishon, that's amazing, a really nice Christmas present for him to be cleared.

Let us all hope that he can get himself back on track now!

@WHLFromAbove: #Avs prospect Joey Hishon finally cleared to practice. Hasn't played since being concussed in the 2011 Mem Cup on a hit by Brayden McNabb.

A Christmas miracle! I was so excited to see that I actually took a pic of the tweet from my phone.

If we learned anything about concussion, it's that it's best not to put a timetable on a possible return.

I don't think that's an option right now.

Personally, even though Hishon has been cleared, I'd like LE to really ease him back into the practices. Maybe even have him in a "No Contact" jersey for the first couple, just to make sure nothing re-appears.

Then ease him into just some more intense drills and such, before going to a full-fledged practice.
