07:26 AM ET 08.22 | The Hurricanes have made some impact moves lately, but few would rank as welecome as a return to full health for Eric Staal. [Staal] got to Raleigh Center Ice a little after 10 a.m. Wednesday, throwing on his skates for his first informal workout with some of his Carolina Hurricanes teammates. ... If you didn't know Staal had suffered a major knee injury in May, after taking a dangerous knee-on-knee hit, you would have thought it was just another day at the rink for the Canes captain. Staal didn't wear a knee brace or any tape. Nor, he said, has he had any setbacks during his physical rehabilitation. "It felt good," he said of the knee after the on-ice work. "It has been no issue here the last little while. It's good to be back and it felt strong. I feel good."
