Devils Defenseman Bryce Salvador Ready to Resume Career After Missing


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has already been posted/discussed:

Defenseman Bryce Salvador is looking forward to the time when his being in the Devils’ lineup again will be considered a “non-event.”

For now, however, it’s still significant news that Salvador expects to be on the ice when the team’s veterans take part in their first practice of training camp on Sept. 17. Salvador, 35, missed all of last season with a cochlear concussion, but has been symptom free for an extended period now and has had no setbacks while going “full tilt” in his off-season workouts.

“I’m back in full training, full everything, so I’m excited for the season,” he said today.

After spending the summer in Minnesota working out and skating with a group of NHL players there that included teammate Zach Parise, Salvador has been back in New Jersey for the last couple of weeks and has been working out and skating at Prudential Center with about eight early arrivals, including Parise. It’s been a long road back for Salvador, but he’s received nothing but good news from the specialists that have been overseeing his recovery.

The final formality will be to get medical clearance from the Devils’ doctors, which Salvador expects to happen “within the next couple of weeks.” After that, he’ll be approaching training camp like he always has.

So it looks like he is back and ready to go, after everything that he has said and what has been published i think it would be impossible for Lou to stop him from playing or getting hit to retire etc.

With white gone i hope he can come back and do a good job for the team.

I would guess the parings would look someything like:

Volchenkov/Greene

Salvador/Fayne

Tallinder/Taormina

Spares: one of Larsson/Fraser/Corrente/Leach

Would anyone else considering skating 7 d? We don't exactly play the 4th liners much, except on the PK, and Kovy double shifts anyway sometimes. I wouldn't mind giving some combination of Tao/Urbom/Larsson more ice time.
