Gagne Skates For Duration Of Practice, Classic Jersey Unveiling

simonSimon skated for the first time Tuesday and said he felt real good about the session. Today, Gagne scrimmage with the veterans, and even keeping up with the likes of Jeff Carter.

Onlookers of today’s practice told me today that everything went well and that Gagne said he felt really good about his performance. This is great news, and giant step forward for the winger after injuring his groin last month.

“I pushed a little bit harder today,” he said. “It felt okay. It’s not the way that I want yet, but it’s getting there.

“I try to go out there and not think about it. That’s what I did today, but at the same time I was trying to be smart when I was going in the corner, battling for the puck. That might be the next step, to go full speed.”

Flyers training camp opens officially this Sunday morning. Tomorrow the club will unveil their Winter Classic sweaters at a press conference at 1:45pm.
