Penguins center Jordan Staal skated on the CONSOL Energy Center ice Wednesday morning with strength coach Mike Kadar.
Staal has been out of the lineup and on the injured-non roster list after having a procedure to cure an infection in his foot.
Staal has been working out and hitting the ice was the next major step towards his recovery.
Staal originally suffered a lacerated tendon injury on his foot during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals when he was accidently stepped on by Montreal’s P.K. Subban during a battle for a loose puck. The next day, Staal underwent a procedure to repair the tendon, forcing him to miss Games 2 and 3, before he made a dramatic return in Game 4.
The infection did not develop until after a follow-up procedure in June.
