Ryane Clowe Needs To Be Medically Cleared Before He Can Practice With The Devils

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound St. John’s, Newfoundland native says he is “feeling pretty good” following the concussion that ended his season last March 31, but does not know yet whether he’ll be cleared medically for the start of  camp. He plans to visit a concussion specialist again before he takes his training camp physical next Thursday and is hoping he’ll get the go-ahead from everyone to practice with full contact.

“I feel pretty good,” Clowe told me today. “I’m not going to say if I’m ready to go or not because I’ve got to get cleared to play and I’ve got to see the doctor again before the season starts. But I feel good. I, obviously, haven’t done any contact. I’ve been skating the last few weeks, just scrimmaging since I got back with the guys. I’ve been on the ice and stuff.

“The biggest thing with me is, when we start practicing, if I get some contact in then and just go from there. I’ve been feeling pretty good. I’ve been working out pretty normal the last, I guess, month.”
