I will have video, hopefully, or at least audio, from Marc Staal later on. He said he’s good to go for the season, and is wearing a tinted shield.
Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin, both coming off shoulder surgery, were among a group of 22 players who practiced today. Neither has been cleared for contact or has a timetable for when they might return, but you have to assume they won’t be ready for the start of the season.
The others who took part today included, in no particular order: Staal, Derrick Brassard, Chris Kreider, John Moore, Dylan McIlrath, Ryan Bourque, Stu Bickel, Rick Nash, Taylor Pyatt, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi, Michael Del Zotto, Mats Zuccarello, Anton Stralman, Derek Dorsett, Brian Boyle, Brad Richards, Justin Falk, Aaron Johnson and Marek Hrivik. I thought I saw Dominic Moore doing shooting drills before the workout.
