Schneider Returns to Practice

By Matt Vevoda

Amid the slew of injuries on its roster, the Ducks saw some encouraging news at Friday practice, as defenseman Mathieu Schneider skated for the first time in six weeks.

Schneider, who has been recovering from a broken ankle sustained in the Ducks’ second preseason game on Sept. 15 at Los Angeles, practiced for close to 20 minutes, initially skating alone and later among the team.

“It was exciting just to put the gear on,” Schneider said. “It was nice to get out there. It was even better once the guys came out. Being out there by yourself is no fun.”

Medically cleared to practice with the team yesterday, Schneider was pleased with the results in his first day back.

“I was really happy with the way I felt,” Schneider said. “I was nervous about stopping and changing directions, but I felt comfortable doing everything that I did today. No pain at all.”

As for when the time will come for some game action, Schneider said he would like to say he’s day-to-day, but there’s still some work to do.

“I want to get in at least three really good practices,” Schneider said. “It’s just going to be simple hockey when I get back. My first few games are going to be my training camp basically.”

When Schneider does finally make his debut in a Ducks uniform, it will be a long time coming for the 19-year veteran, who signed a two-year deal with the team in the offseason after playing last four seasons in Detroit.

“It’s been a long six weeks for me,” Schneider said. “I’d like to get in the lineup as quickly as possible.”
