Flames Langkow gets OK to return to practice

Posted on: March 30, 2011 3:11 pm
Calgary Flames center Daymond Langkow, out more than a year after a shot broke a vertebra in his neck, has been cleared to resume full-contact practices, the club announced on Wednesday. 

“In as much as Daymond has not played in an NHL game in more than a full-calendar year there remains issues relative to getting him ready to return to the lineup such as conditioning, rebuilding muscle mass, readiness for game speed and game timing, etc,” Flames GM Jay Feaster said in a statement. 

Feaster added that once the coaching staff agrees Langkow is game-ready, the Flames will make the necessary roster moves to activate him. Langkow was injured when a shot from teammate Ian White’s stick on March 21, 2010. 

The Flames face a crucial game tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. Calgary is in 10th place in the West, three points behind eight-place Chicago.
