Mueller Enters Season With Concussion Problems Behind Him

from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,

Peter Mueller thought his concussion problems were over last September, only to suffer another one in his first game back in the Avalanche’s preseason.

He missed the entire regular season. Mueller is saying all the right things again, but with a noticeable uptick in his voice.

“I’m excited to be a hockey player again,” Mueller said Wednesday in his first public comments since last September. “Obviously, I’ve had concussions in the past and it’s something I have to deal with, but right now everything is in the right direction. Everything is pointing forward. I’m excited that it’s all behind me.”

Mueller, a left winger whose good health could be a major key to how successful the Avs are this coming season, has been skating regularly and will undergo physicals with the rest of the team Sept. 16. Assuming he passes, he’ll be on the ice with no restrictions the next day, the first of training camp.
