Marc-Andre Fleury skates for first time since concussion

P.J. Stock and Sophia Jurksztowicz set up another night of Hockey Night in Canada and debate which Penguin could be traded first.

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time since being sidelined by a concussion earlier this month.

Fleury has missed Pittsburgh’s past six games since reporting concussion-like symptoms following a loss to Washington on Dec. 14.

He was a full participant in practice on Tuesday and facing shots for the first time since the diagnosis. Fleury said he was a little rusty, but said otherwise he felt pretty good. Coach Mike Sullivan called Fleury’s presence at practice “progress”, but declined to issue a timetable for Fleury’s return.

The Penguins are 2-4 without their top goaltender.

Defenceman Kris Letang also practiced on Tuesday. Letang was held out of a loss to Winnipeg on Sunday as a precaution after taking a shot to the head in a win over Minnesota last Saturday.
