I don't know if he'll be able to skate or not. I'll wait for my trainers to give me all of the info." He was put in concussion protocol after he was injured on Oct. 26.

Brett Connolly will battle for a top-six forward spot at training camp.

He was comfortable playing on the third line with Lars Eller last season and wouldn't mind playing there again.
