OTTAWA -- The latest news regarding Carlo Colaiacovo is good, Maple Leafs general manager John Ferguson said yesterday.

Colaiacovo, who suffered a concussion against the Ottawa Senators in January and did not play again last season, left the ice feeling woozy last Friday during the first day of on-ice workouts.

Colaiacovo was examined in Montreal yesterday by concussion specialist Dr. Karen Johnston.

"The reports we have indicated (Colaiacovo's symptoms) are not related to any previous injury, but further tests are scheduled," Ferguson said. "It was positive. I'm happy for Carlo."

Colaiacovo is "feeling better" Ferguson said but still has slight headaches. As a precaution, he will undergo another test before he gets the green light to return to the ice.

What caused Colaiacovo's latest woes has not been determined, Ferguson said.
