Medical Report

MEDICAL REPORT - In an interview with the Giornale del Popolo, Steve Hirschi confirms that he might soon be ready to return to the ice with HC Lugano.

>The 33-year-old defenseman is recovering from a knee injury and fully practiced with the team yesterday. He might even be ready to make his comeback this weekend: "Maybe, who knows. If I feel good, I will be there for the derby on Sunday, but otherwise it will not be a problem for me to wait another week, when my conditioning is certainly going to be better." (mso)
