Good news at day 4 of Habs training camp in Brossard as injured centre Tomas Plekanec skated with the main group for the first time since camp started. As for whether he’ll be in the lineup tomorrow for the intra squad game or in Saturday’s season opener against the Leafs, Plekanec said he’s going to take it one day at a time.
“I don’t know yet. We’ve been going day by day since basically Sunday and i’m seeing medical staff right in the morning when I get in and we’re making decisions every morning. That’s how it’s been so far and i’m sure that’s how it will continue until probably Saturday”.
Coach Michel Therrien says regardless of whether Plekanec sees ice time this week, he looks forward to the return of the veteran player’s presence in all facets of the game.
“He’s a guy that can do a lot of things on the ice. He’s a really smart player because he can play against top players, he can play on teh power play, penalty killing and I really appreciate that type of player. Again this year he’s going to have a crucial role with us. “
