Niedermayer Shooting For Tuesday

via the LA Times (reg. req.),

Scott Niedermayer, who sat out the last two games because of a stress fracture in his right foot, will be back on skates Saturday and could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday when the Ducks play at San Jose.
Niedermayer, who consulted with team physician Ronald Glousman, said he was given the OK to return to the ice after X-rays proved negative.
Niedermayer will travel with the team to Nashville but said he doesn’t plan to play in Saturday’s game against the Predators, even if he doesn’t have any problems with his foot during the morning skate.
Niedermayer played coy when asked if the fracture had totally healed. But he admitted there was some concern over playing on consecutive nights next week against the Sharks.
“You want to … try and be smart about it,” he said. “You want to make sure you’re there for the long haul.”
