“He’s been skating for a little while,” Hextall explained to the media. “He skated today. It’s just a skate though. It’s an aerobic skate, and he goes out there and skates around and trying to get his wind back and legs back. So he’s well on the way to recovery, albeit he still has some time.”
Hextall added that even though Gostisbehere has skated, there is no timetable in place for his return to game action.MORE NEWS: Fire Marshal Investigating Possible Case Of Arson In Philadelphia's Overbrook Section
