Here is your early morning report from Thrashers practice. Your last for nearly a week. Team leaves today for New Jersey, Buffalo and Montreal with a stop in Elmira, Ontario for Dan Snyder event. They don’t return to Duluth until next Wednesday.
The early report is that Christoph Schubert is back and on the ice. We assume the “immigration problems” are taken care of. He has been off the ice for a few days so his status for the weekend games remains to be seen.
We had quite a few players on the ice already when I arrived a half hour before the start of practice. Colby Armstrong, Evander Kane, Bryan Little and Marty Reasoner are working on drills with Schubert at one end. Jim Slater and Chris Thorburn on the other end working with two goalies.
Judging by the practice jerseys, the skate will begin with special teams practice (Look, I learned my lesson!).
That’s all I have to offer so far. I will update after practice and interviews.
