On Friday, Christensen said there has been no setback in his injury. Just frustration that he hasn’t been cleared for contact yet.
“I want to be back as soon as possible, or considered being put into a lineup as soon as possible,” he said. “I don’t know what that’s going to take. I hoped to part of the last two or three exhibition games. If they have something dfferent in mind, I guess that’s something I have to live with.”
Christensen played through the injury last season after he was acquired from the Atlanta Thrashers in February. He had the surgery in June and has participated in all of the drills, but none of the full-contact scrimmages, during training camp.
“I want to be back soon, but it’s not something you want to rush into,” he said. “It would be really disappointing if I tweak it or did something that would set me back another week or two, where I’d have to see another doctor again, or another MRI. It’s precautionary. We’re being very careful with it. That’s all you can do.”
