From Bob McKenzie at TSN:
It is bordering on a medical miracle.
Vancouver Canuck centre Manny Malhotra, who suffered what was thought to be a season-ending eye injury on March 16 that at one point was perhaps considered to be career-threatening, has been cleared by doctors to fully participate in practice, including taking contact.
While no decisions have been made on playing a game as Malhotra still needs to prove to himself and the coaching staff he’s capable of playing without being a liability to himself or the team, there is now a legitimate chance he could see action in the Stanley Cup final if all continues to go well.
Miraculous news indeed. And I’m not talking about Malhotra’s potential chance of playing in the Finals—though that’s an exciting prospect, if he and coaching staff determine it could work—so much as his amazing recovery from such a scary injury. [photo]
