Stoll update

Jarret Stoll, who missed the start of training camp as he recovered from symptoms of arthritis — particularly in his right wrist — completed his first full-team practice today. Stoll also skated Thursday, with the group of players who didn’t play against the Sharks, and after practice today he gave an update of his status…

“It’s good,” Stoll said. “It’s way better. I skated yesterday, for one practice with the players who didn’t play, and I felt good. I thought maybe I would be a little sore and stiff after that first time back, but it wasn’t, so that’s pretty encouraging, for sure. … A couple more practices, and hopefully next week get into a game, for sure. A couple games, maybe all of them.”

After Saturday, the Kings play Tuesday in Kansas City, Wednesday at Colorado, next Saturday in Las Vegas and next Sunday in Anaheim. Here’s what Terry Murray said about getting Stoll into preseason games…

“I don’t have a plan,” Murray said. “I want to have a conversation with him, now that he has had a couple practices, and just get a general `How are you feeling? How are you doing? What do you see? How do you feel? What do you think you can do when you get into a game?’ I’ll sit down and go over the schedule with him, as to what we have remaining, and let him basically tell him when he’s good to go. As soon as he gives me the green light, I’ll put him in right away.”

Barring setbacks, it seems likely that Stoll will indeed be ready for the season opener.
