Elias Practices, May Play On The Weekend

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Elias said “nobody has said a word” to him about when he might play.

“If you ask me, I haven’t practiced, I haven’t played a game in five months,” he said. “I don’t think two practices will do. I think there’s more danger to it than the positive side. Today was practice and the guys knew it was my first time, so they backed off me a little bit and gave me time. Nobody’s going to do that in a game. You don’t want to get caught out there with your head down looking for the pucks all the time and give the other team the opportunity to get you.”

Elias sounded optimistic, however, about playing in one of the games this weekeend—Friday against the Islanders at home and Saturday in Ottawa.

“There’s back-to-back games, so one game would be great to jump in and just to get my feet wet a little bit,” he said. “Then, we have three more practices after that. That would be a perfect scenario, but, like I said, nobody has said a word. We haven’t talked about it. For me, it was good to get out there and not really feel much with the leg.”
