He's back

AP story ... sorry, no link.

{Flyers’ Forsberg skates for the first time since surgery}
VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) — Peter Forsberg skated Friday for the first time since having surgery on his right ankle, and the Philadelphia Flyers forward might return to practice early next week.
Forsberg, who had an infected bursa sac removed from his ankle on Sept. 12, felt some discomfort during the 10-minute skating session.
“I’m going to skate a little harder each day and we’ll see about Monday,” Forsberg said. “I’m happy to be back. I missed 11 days of training camp.”
The Flyers training staff added extra padding to Forsberg’s skate to reduce the amount of friction around the injury.
“I just had the stitches out this morning, so it was hurting a little bit,” he said. “I wasn’t trying to skate that hard, just get out there. It’s good to be back on the ice.”
The NHL’s most valuable player in 2003 aims to play in at least one preseason game before the regular season begins on Oct. 5.
Forsberg is expected to center a line with veteran Simon Gagne and rookie Jeff Carter.

Also Hatcher skated with some Phantoms during a pre-practice session where goaltender coach Lemelin was working with Martin Houle. Hatcher was with the Phantoms shooters. He skated hard and shot hard. Hatcher looked completely mobile in all his skating work. He worked himself very hard.
