In addition to forward Brendan Gallagher who wore a regular player jersey in practice on Wednesday, defenseman David Savard, with an upper body injury, is progressing well. He started skating again in Brossard.
The scenario is similar to Sean Monahan, who is injured in the lower body, since the attacker started skating again the same day.
For his part, Paul Byron finally has a reason to smile. The veteran who hasn't been able to play a single game this season due to a hip injury is showing encouraging signs. Its progress is slow, but the organization has noted progress for two weeks.
The main interested party was limited to 27 games last season due to this injury.
Recall that Byron is serving the last year of a four-year contract, worth $13.4 million.
