Chicago Blackhawks winger Daniel Carcillo told the Chicago Tribune that his surgically-repaired knee held up fine after an informal practice Wednesday. Carcillo had surgery last January to repair a torn left ACL, and had this to say:
"Structurally, my knee is great... It's just a matter of getting back in skating shape."
With the NHL lockout in effect, players are organizing practices on their own.
Carcillo scored two goals and added nine assists in only 28 games with the Blackhawks last season before his injury. The 205-pound left winger also took 82 penalty minutes.
Carcillo said in a Tribune video that he still feels sluggish, having not skated much lately, but he was happy to see some teammates at practice.
