Justin Williams’ recovery, from his broken finger, is continuing on schedule. Based on the initial estimate, and Terry Murray’s comments on Sunday, the over/under date for Williams’ return would seem to be Sunday’s game at Chicago. Williams has been practicing in a yellow no-contact jersey and has been handling/shooting pucks.
Question: Any update on Justin Williams’ status? Will he go on the road trip?
MURRAY: “Yes, he will go on the trip. It’s getting very close. After we practiced (Saturday) in San Jose, his passing comment was, `I think I’ll be ready to go in a week.’ I don’t know, right now, when the doctor will give him clearance or if there is another appointment. I’ll check on that and get that information. But he’s getting itchy. You can see him jumping in more on the drills. He wants to be a part of it and he’s got a real itch to get back to playing.”
