Medical Report

Out with a meniscus injury since the end of November, the 25-year-old has found his way back into Lausanne HC's team practice.

Boltshauser took part in the LHC's team practice for the second time in a row after a first tryout on Tuesday. "It feels good to be back, especially since I have no longer problems with my knee," he tells Jérôme Reynard (Sport-Center). "It's now a question of finding my bearings, my game, so I can be at the top before playing again."

The 25-year-old goaltender, however, is not yet completely ready to return to game action. "I'll probably have to wait another week or two to get back in shape and also see how my knee reacts with the repetition of training. We'll see," he adds.

As for Jonas Junland (clavicule fracture), the 31-year-old Swedish defender does no longer feel any pain but it still is a long way to go for him. Junland will check with the doctors on Friday this week if he can resume on-ice practice, first without contact for a few weeks, and then normally.

"But it is difficult to predict exactly when I will be able to return to the lineup. The bone must strengthen sufficiently in order to resist shocks. I hope to make my comeback in late February and be able to play three or four games before the playoffs," the Swede tells the same source.
