Gagne Returns To Practice

from Erik Erlendsson of the Bolts Report at the Tampa Tribune,

Injured left wing Simon Gagne returned to practice Tuesday, but is not quite ready to return to the lineup.

Gagne has been out since Oct. 22 with a strain in his neck suffered when he hit neck first into the boards on Oct. 21. He has undergone several tests since then to try to pinpoint the nature of some minor vision issues he was encountering when he would turn his head from side-to-side.

The final determination, Gagne said, was some swelling in the back of his neck constricted blood flow, which the medical staff believes caused the vision issues.
