from Ian MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun,
Vancouver Canucks forward Mason Raymond rejoined teammates on the ice here Tuesday for the first time since suffering a compression fracture in his back on a hit by Boston Bruin Johnny Boychuk in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final.
Raymond, who spent most of the summer in a back brace, emphasized there is no time frame for his return to National Hockey League action. But the winger felt good enough during Tuesday’s hour-long workout to participate in drills that involved contact.
“It’s good to be here,” Raymond said. “It’s been a long time. It’s the first time on the ice since the incident. To get out there with everybody else, see a few smiles … it felt good. It has been a lot of hard work. June 13: that date sticks in my head. Tonnes of rehab, doing things twice a day, doing everything I could to get myself better. You work for moments like this. Today is another stepping stone.”
