Joni Pitkanen (heel) didn't sound optimistic about his chances of playing this coming season
In a translated piece, he told Finnish news outlet Kaleva: "Made some progress, but day by day we go. Really is still a long way that I could play at all." He was asked if he had been on skates and responded with "I'm not." Carolina GM Ron Francis said in late June that Pitkanen was unable to put his foot in a skate. He hasn't been able to play since April 2, 2013 because of a broken heel bone. Aug 5 - 12:08 PM
