Sutter Feeling Better, but Won\'t Rush

Brandon Sutter was back on the ice today for the first time since his October 25 concussion.  He’s taking his rehab process slowly, but the good news is that he’s steadily improving rather than feeling different on a day-to-day basis.

“It felt pretty good,” he said after today’s skate.  “Hopefully I can up the workout the next couple of days, keep going harder and hopefully I’ll be back before you know it.”

Sutter only started working out on the bike in the last few days after not being able to do much of anything at all for the first week after being hit hard by Doug Weight of the New York Islanders.

“I couldn’t even watch TV the first couple of days,” he said.  “I’ve just kind of been laying in my place for a week.  It’s been pretty boring so it’s kind of killing me.  It’s been nice to at least be back around here and see the guys and stuff.”

Now, he says the headaches are gone for the most part, but he won’t rush back if he feels he’s not ready.

“I want to get back as soon as I can, but I don’t want to come back to early and rush it," said Sutter.  "It’s different because it’s not your knee or shoulder or something.  It’s your head, and it’s a little more important.”
