from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
He has not been given a more specific timeline for a return.
“It is too soon; you take it day by day,” Zetterberg said. “You just get stronger and better every day. The only timeline we have is that eight weeks before contact. After that, just got to re-evaluate and hopefully I’m good enough to do some contact drills and we’ll see how fast it goes.”
Zetterberg, who has dealt with back issues for several years, said it’s difficult to explain what he was going through to anyone who hasn’t experienced it.
from Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front,
“I’ve never saw or felt that before,” Zetterberg said. “When I was lying there in Russia, I knew what Bert went through. It was tough. It was hard. The first 3-4 days was not good at all, but after that we found a way to make things better. I think maybe day five or six it happened, I kind of turned the corner and finally felt good enough to fly.”
There is still no timetable yet on when he’ll be back on the ice skating.
“I’ve been moving a lot more the last two weeks,” Zetterberg said. “I’ve just got to take it step-by-step and so far no hiccups. It’s just got to stay that way.”
Basically everything is on schedule. If no setbacks before the eight week period, next step is contact drills and see how it goes.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
