Flames assistant GM Jay Feaster says a visit with the doctor last week got the gritty centre cleared for "light" skating, but Langkow is still unable to take contact or even lift weights with just a few weeks remaining before training camp opens at the Saddledome.
"It's hard to say exactly a timeline on it, but I think we're hoping that it's ready for camp," said Nathan Zaseybida, Langkow's agent. "Over the last couple of weeks, he's had big improvements, and that's pretty typical with the injury. It's just a sensation that he's having that needs to pass."
"...Everyone's being kind of extra cautious and making sure everything's 100% before we put him back on the ice taking contact."
