Boston Globe, Tim Thomas (notes) returned to the track with the Boston Bruins this week, taking pictures during training, The Boston Globe reports. Thomas is coming off a hip surgery and is expected to compete with Tuukka Rask (notes) for a time in goal this season.
Other Bruins injury is also back to work. These include defender Dennis Seidenberg (notes) and the end Milan Lucic (notes). Also seen in Ristuccia Arena, installation of the Bruins’ practice was the end Marco Sturm (notes).
Training on Tuesday was the first time Thomas has been on ice since his surgery. He arrived in camp goaltending coach Bob Essensa.
“It’s good for him to get a chance to come out here and try some things,” said Essensa the Globe. “He is tight with some of his equipment to allow a greater range of motion and flexibility. So it’s a good opportunity for him to get a bit of a step in the right direction to enter the camp.”
Thomas, the Vezina Trophy winner for the 2008-09 season, struggled last season due to hip problem.
Seidenberg reports is well after recovery from a torn tendon that ended his first season. If all goes well, Seidenberg might get a shot to skate with captain Zdeno Chara (notes) in the best defense of the Bruins’ pairing.
Lucic told the Globe that he had returned too normal after resting a bum left ankle. Look for him to return to his role as the big striker to complement center Marc Savard (notes) and newcomer Nathan Horton (notes) on No. 1 line equipment.
Sturm does not speak to the Globe about his recovery from knee surgery. The Bruins do not expect the veteran striker back until mid-November at the earliest.
