from Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun,
The Edmonton Oilers hope with his sinus infection clearing, Ales Hemsky will come out of the fog he’s seemingly been in so far this season.
The Oilers winger skated with the club on Wednesday prior to departing for Minnesota, where they’ll take on the Wild Thursday.
Hemsky sat out the last two games with an infection that had his head spinning. It’s not sure whether he’ll be ready to play against the Wild.
“I’m not 100%, there are still some symptoms that I don’t like,” Hemsky said. “I feel better in practice, it’s coming.
“With the infection in my sinuses I was losing my balance and I wasn’t seeing straight sometimes. I went out to skate in Vancouver and I really couldn’t see when I was on the ice, it’s not really pleasant.”
A stronger prescription has helped Hemsky battle the virus, and perhaps it’ll kill whatever else has been ailing the talented winger.
