Bruno Gervais has recovered from his abdominal tear.

"Dr. Meyers did a great job on me," Gervais said. "Guys fly in here from all over the country to have him do their surgeries. I don't even feel it anymore." He had been in considerable pain beforehand, which prevented him pushing off when skating and could not resist getting pulled down because he had no strength. Gervais had been dealing with the ailment for a while before he underwent surgery and was finally shut down. He's expected to be fine for training camp, but he'll have to compete for a roster spot.

Bruno Gervais was a healthy scratch for Philadelphia's opening two games, but he has played in eight straight since then.

"It seems like he's fit right in and he understands the way we've wanted to play," coach Peter Laviolette said. "He skates well. He's constantly looking to add to the back end of the rush. He's been a really steady player for us, night in and night out, since he's been in the lineup." He has goal, 12 shots and a minus-3 rating on the year.

Bruno Gervais has signed on to play with Heilbronner Falken in Germany's second division, according to agent Allan Walsh.

Walsh said Tuesday that the Philadelphia defender will head out to join the team. Gervais, along with teammate Max Talbot, had been busy previously with a series of exhibition games throughout Quebec to raise money for charities

Bruno Gervais and Max Talbot organized a players' tour to raise money for local Quebec charities, and Thursday they played at the Colisée.

The series of exhibition games is a way for players to attempt to stay in game shape, while giving back to the community as well. Hall Gill, Brian Gionta and Carey Price were among the participants. The game drew 5,600, though it could've been more of a success with the capacity of the Colisée at 15,000. "We were hoping we'd get more people," Gervais said. "I thought with this city wanting a team, there would be more but I think the fans who were here got a good show." More players are expected to attend as the work stoppage drags on.

According to a source, Bruno Gervais is close to signing with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Flyers did have an interest in re-signing unrestricted free agent Matt Carle, but he cashed in on a multi-year deal with Tampa Bay on Wednesday night that will pay him $33 million over a six year term. Gervais would be a much cheaper option.

Bruno Gervais got back into Tampa Bay's lineup on Monday night after missing six games with an upper-body injury.

It was a successful return for the Lightning rearguard, as he finished the contest with a goal and an assist during his 12:10 of ice time. Mike Commodore sat as a healthy scratch to make room for him.

Bruno Gervais (upper body) is hoping to return to active duty on Thursday, but there may not be a spot on the blueline for him.

He dressed in 34 consecutive games before getting hurt against Carolina on Mar. 3 and had been a frequent healthy scratch prior to that. The Lightning have a crowded back end because of their activity around the trade deadline, so he could end up as a spectator when he is healed.
