Thrashers Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec Cleared To Practice

From Ben Wright of the Blueland Blog, it looks like Ondrej Pavelec is getting closer to a return. Chris Mason should be happy for a break, but considering his constant strings of long playing periods, five games shouldn’t be a big deal for Masonry.

Ondrej Pavelec will speak to media tomorrow in Duluth at the team’s practice facility, but the good news is that he has been medically cleared to play pending his passing of a post-concussion test. No timetable has been established for his return, but this is great news after that scary incident on opening night. Obviously he’ll need some time to get back in game shape and practice with the team before returning to action in a game situation.
