EDMONTON - Ben Eager is skating with the club and while he still cant participate in any contact drills, hes a big step closer.

It was nice to get out there with all the guys, be out there with just more than myself, said Eager, whos recovering from a concussion/whiplash issue. I felt fine. I think within the next few days Ill be doing all the drills. Ill practice all week in Jasper, see the doctor before the weekend and hopefully be cleared to play. I just have to get back into game shape, but (the home opener) is definitely my goal.
