07:51 PM ET 11.08 | James Neal took part in his first full practice for the Pittsburgh Penguins in over a month this morning. He was injured in the season opener against the New Jersey Devils and hasn't played more than four minutes for the Penguins this season to this point. Needless to say, seeing Neal back out on the ice and taking part in drills with teammates is a site for the sore eyes of the Penguins. Fans of the Pens shouldn't expect to see him in a game in the immediate future though. At least that's the way head coach Dan Bylsma made it sound after practice this morning. He spoke at length about what Neal needed to do to get back into the lineup for an actual game.

That will be great to get him back. He had a great chemistry with Geno and it will be great to get Engelland back on defense instead of on the wing.

Solid guy, need him on the ice.

Maybe his return will help get Geno out of his slump.

Did they have to add stay away from wiffle ball to his contract?
