Jarret Stoll will not be with the Edmonton Oilers when they leave for a seven-game road trip today.
After suffering his second concussion of the season, the versatile centre hopes to do some exercises today after sitting out the last four games.
"Hopefully (today), the way I feel, I would like to get on the bike - some kind of physical activity (today) to see how the head reacts to that," said Stoll.
Stoll says he needs two good days in the gym before hitting the ice.
"For the first couple of ice sessions I'll be out by myself and see how it is there," he explained. "And when that is all fine and I pass those tests, then I'll join the team."
Stoll is the Oilers' regular point man on the power play, a key penalty killer and top face-off specialist.
If everything runs smoothly with Stoll's rehab, it appears the earliest he could rejoin the team would be for Saturday's game in Toronto.
