Dylan McIlrath tweets that he received good news this morning regarding his injured knee. He added that now the real work begins.
Earlier in the month it was reported that McIlrath was hoping to be cleared for skating during his next exam. Sounds like he got an Ok.
Hey @dylan_mcilrath, assuming your Tweet means all went well today…if so, really happy for you…now get to work!!

…assuming he's not going to get right into "Herbies" but still great to hear he's taken the next step in his recovery.
…ok Mr. Beukeboom time to start devising a game plan to get this kid ready to dominate opponents physically in the NHL by this time next season.
