CALGARY - Calgary Flames forward Brendan Morrison is back on the blades, but said a return from his knee injury is not as close as hed like.

Its making an improvement, which is good, Morrison said Monday. Its nice to be on the ice, but weve still got a ways to go. Theres still some swelling thats lingering, but it does feel pretty good on the ice.

Ive skated a couple of times, so I guess thats a good sign, but theres still no timetable.

Morrison injured his left knee in the March 2 game in Chicago.

He battled through an injury a few seasons ago, which didnt improve until after surgery.

The one I had before is a little bit worse, Morrison said.

Ive been through a serious knee injury before, so I know what to expect, how you have to deal with it. Its a lot of time, and thats something we dont have a lot of right now.
