Trio close to returning: Thursday notes

Some good and unexpected and kind of big news this morning: Chris Bruton is cleared to play. They finished up what they had to finish from his surgery, he practiced today and he’s cleared at the trainers’ and coaches’ command. Story coming in tomorrow’s paper.

John Persson and Marc Cantin also appear ready to go, a solid little influx of guys who missed this three-game losing streak (but not this week’s practice).

Brett Gallant had a family obligation so didn’t skate.

And if you missed it late yesterday, David Ullstrom ended up going to Prague; link on yesterday’s post.
