Jim Cerny at Blueshirts United recently interviewed Marc Staal, and while he did not specifically mention the eye injury that forced him to miss the second half of last season and all but one game in the playoffs, the Rangers defenseman said he's 100% healthy this summer.
Here's an excerpt from Cerny's report...
"Staal, who has called this “one of the more normal summers recently” since he is feeling completely healthy and not dealing with concussion symptoms or a broken foot like the past two off-seasons, is training diligently every day to prepare for his first camp under the team’s new head coach Alain Vigneault. He was back on the ice and skating two weeks ago, already."
Staal adds that in a few weeks he'll be heading to Team Canada’s Olympic camp and then on to New York
...so when Staal says he's completely healthy, does that mean his eye as well? Sort of confusion since the eye isn't directly mentioned.
...i guess it's a good sign that he plans on being at Team Canada's camp. Although, he could just attend and not practice if his eye is still a concern.
