Montreal Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov rejoined his teammates at practice Monday for the first time in more than a year.
Markov has been sidelined since suffering a right knee injury against the Carolina Hurricanes on Nov. 13, 2010.
He underwent major reconstructive surgery but has had a pair of setbacks in his recovery.
Montreal coach Jacques Martin offered no timetable as to when the 32-year-old Russian would be back in the lineup.
Markov, who signed a three-year, $17.25 million contract in June, has collected 81 goals and 285 assists in 623 career games.
