We have some good news to pass along regarding Kings prospect Alex Turcotte.
First some context:
LA GM Rob Blake was on Kings Of The Podcast earlier this week and had this to say about the ongoing situation:
“He’s been dealing with the concussion injury that was sustained at the end of last year,” explained Blake. “He was on-track and doing well in the summer, but then had a setback [and wasn’t able to participate at Development Camp]. So we’re dealing with that. He’s currently in a stage of his rehab where he’s skating on his own. Progressing from that point, we have some medical appointments next week for him. If everything goes as planned, and the way it’s directed, he’ll soon start working his way back into a non-contact spot at practice. Then, we’ll go from there. It’s a difficult situation for him and for us, but we have to put his health first. I know we all want to [see him back playing], but he has to be healthy with himself and be in that situation before he can get back on the ice.”
Following up on those comments, Mayor’s Manor has learned via sources connected to the situation that Turcotte has now been given the green light to resume practicing with the Ontario Reign. He will soon join the club while wearing a non-contact jersey.
Step one of a possibly long journey yes.
However, it’s a very positive development.
