    I didn't hear anything about it. I doubt it's true but if I do hear anything, I'll be sure to post it

    Malkin tweeted something in broken English that looked like it said he participated in a contact drill. From what I can tell there was a little contact but not much. I also heard earlier that Kunitz gave him a good shoulder during one practice. He is scrimmaging and is expected to travel with the team. All good signs.

    Sid spent the first practice with contact.....
    He also tweeted this shortly after:

    Just jokes I bump Sid in faceoff today...))))
    So it sounds as if he is getting "bumped" but not hit.

    I wouldn't consider that contact, certainly not to the degree that he needs to be cleared for

    Your right it isn't contact, at least not the type he is going to have to be able to endure but its a positive step. Sounds like we got official word today that he will miss the opener, I don't think anyone expected anything different though.

    Just heard that too, hopefully he is cleared but I would still expect a minimum of 2 weeks before he could play a game. At the very least, this means he is progressing to the point where there may be a possibilty he could have contact
