Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now: Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon was on the ice yesterday. One person who was there said that he was shooting puck “will full force.” An update should come today.
Ruff adds: “The goal for any player, once he’s off the injury list is to get him back out playing. Our goal is to get him 100% healthy and get him back out there.”
Ruff said he “thought he would be a little further along.”
Curtis Pashelka: San Jose Sharks coach Bob Boughner said that defenseman Mario Ferraro will travel with team on their road trip but he won’t be playing. He’s still rehabbing and there is no timetable when he could return.
Boughner added: “he’s already bugging the coaches and bugging his teammates. He wants back in.”
Brendan Batchelor: Canucks coach Boudreau said that forward Nils Hoglander will be out long-term, possibly for the rest of the year.
