WILMINGTON — Good morning from Ristuccia Arena, where just about everyone is present for today’s informal skate. The only players not skating today are Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas, and Milan Lucic, who are in New York doing some promotional work for the NHL and Versus.
David Krejci is participating in the five-on-five scrimmage. Krejci has yet to rule out a return in the season opener.
There is one more skate planned for 10 a.m. tomorrow. The players will most likely not skate on Friday to prepare for off-ice testing on Saturday.
