Brodie Back On The Ice, Flames Optimistic For Return
A week after a scary collapse during practice, and Dresden’s TJ Brodie was back on the ice skating.
While his Calgary Flames headed out on a four game road trip, Brodie remained in Calgary and skated supervised by team medical staff.
“TJ has been working out for the past several days and today skated on his own under the supervision of our medical staff,” Flames general manager Brad Treliving said in an NHL.com story.
“Over this past week, he has had consultations with appropriate specialists in Calgary. To date, all medical evaluations and testing have been reassuring. We still work to complete final testing and are optimistic he will rejoin the team in the near future. TJ has been placed on injury reserve retroactive to Nov. 14.”
All tests on Brodie have come back negative, with team doctors concluding his collapse and convulsions were due to a fainting spell.
