Injury updates. Update.

The biggest news from the Ducks trainer’s room pertains to a player who has been M.I.A. since camp started: Joffrey Lupul.

The forward wrote on his Twitter account earlier today that he has been cleared to skate. The exact quote: “After 10 mons I
just got Medical clearance to start skating again. Gonna need a cpl
months to get back in shape but I am ready for it!!”

*Update: False alarm. A team spokesperson confirmed that Lupul has not been cleared to skate yet. He’s only been cleared to resume working out – good news considering the extent of Lupul’s exercise regimen lately has been walking.

Lupul has been progressing from a recurrence of the blood infection he contracted last December, which ultimately ended his 2009-10 season.

Meanwhile, back at the rink …

Joe DiPenta took part in drills and the scrimmage at Anaheim ICE, having lost a couple teeth Sunday. Toni Lydman was back in the gym, but not back on the ice, as he progresses from a bout of double vision.
