WILMINGTON, Mass. — After his team’s practice at Ristuccia Arena today, head coach Claude Julien revealed that rookie Steven Kampfer started riding the bike in his recovery from a concussion.

Kampfer, originally predicted to be out about a week, could skate as early as Thursday, according to Julien. Kampfer suffered his injury last Thursday against Tampa Bay.

How Kampfer feels in the aftermath of his bike ride will determine if he’s ready to take the next step in his recovery, which would be a skate.
