Dan Hamhuis could return to Canucks as early as tomorrow

4

The process began with light, off-ice workouts last week and progressed this week to skating. Hamhuis hasn't exhibited post-concussion symptoms, meaning he has moved from one phase of the recovery to the next (sport specific training) without setback. If all goes well, he may participate in the morning skate leading up to the Dallas game. But even if he's cleared for contact as early as tomorrow, it doesn't mean he'll play. The Canucks are keenly aware of the risks involved, that a player is more at risk to serious head injury if he's not fully recovered. Just look at what happened to Sidney Crosby who, it's believed, already had a concussion when he was hit by Victor Hedman days after the David Steckel hit.
