"I'm Ready To Go"

According to CSN Washington, Stanislav Galiev has been medically cleared to be play.

“Galiev was in Washington to visit with the surgeon who repaired his left wrist and said his Wednesday morning appointment was a good one,” reports Chuck Gormley.

“He said it’s healed and I’m ready to go,” Galiev said. “I can’t wait.”

Gormley says that Galiev hopes to be in the lineup next Friday night. It would be his first game action since October 1 because of a broken wrist.

“Great day in DC today,” Galiev tweeted this afternoon. “Heard great news from a doctor this morning. Now at the airport, coming back to Saint John.”

“I hope I don't forget how to shoot the puck @mathieutcorbeil.”

The third-year Sea Dogs forward was on a tear before being shut down, scoring three goals and three assists in just five games. He’ll have a about a month to get his mojo back before the playoffs start.

This is obviously great news for Saint John. With the Russian sniper back, it solidifies one of the best top-six forward units in the entire Canadian Hockey League with Galiev, Jonathan Huberdeau, Zack Phillips, Charlie Coyle, Tomas Jurco, and Danick Gauthier. That's just scary.

Despite all the games missed by their forwards this season, the Sea Dogs have done well offensively. They have scored 216 times in 53 games, the third most goals scored in the league this season.
