Pavelec Practices

from Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

Ondrej Pavelec started breaking in a new chest protector Tuesday.

His old one was cut off at the hospital 11 days ago when he lost consciousness and collapsed minutes into the Thrashers season opener.

“I was so excited to go back [on the ice] and see how it would go,” Pavelec said after taking part in half a team practice. “It was pretty good. It was only 30 minutes but I felt good.”

After a battery of tests, over days, doctors concluded that Pavelec fainted and subsequently hit his head on the ice. The goaltender said Tuesday that doctors have not determined the cause of the fainting spell.
