Guillaume Latendresse Returns to Practice

According to both Russo and the Wild's Twitter account, Guillaume Latendresse has returned to practice for the Wild. He has missed 32 games with a concussion, after returning from... a concussion. His presence has been missed by the team, who currently have zero net presence, and no prototypical power forwards to substitute in. He was clicking very well with Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley before being injured, yet again, and was one of the many injury blows the Wild took as their early season success dried up.

Will Latendresse immediately make the team better? Most definitely. Is he the solution to everything that ails them? Absolutely not. It will take a fair amount of time for him to get back to game shape, and once he does, it will likely take some time for him to get back up to game speed.

Don't expect to see the Guillaume Latendresse you all know right of the gates. This is a serious injury, a long recovery, and no one wants to rush this.

Still. Good to see he is back with the team and practicing.
