Health Updates And More

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Larkin (neck) and Bertuzzi (back surgery) have begun light skating, but coach Jeff Blashill, also at Monday's event, isn't saying for sure the two forwards will be ready to begin training camp.

"(Larkin's) progressing in a manner that we think he'll be ready," Blashill said. "In those two months (before camp) things happen. Certainly I would never guarantee anybody would be ready, things can happen. But I know Dylan is at LCA (Little Caesars Arena) on a daily basis and he's progressing.

"Same with Bert. They're in the same boat that way, which is probably nice they can do that together. They're different injuries, but they're moving at the same rate together."

Seems like the last I heard on Bert and Larkin they were both doing fine and would be ready to go at camp. Now its only possibly.

Only if Smith is in our lineup, unsure who else would even dare step to dance with Ben on this roster.
