Nash Back at Practice; Callahan in Non-Contact Jersey; Power Play Units

According to Katie Strang at, Rick Nash returned to the ice today after missing practice on Sunday with a sore foot he received from blocking a shot during the team's last preseason game against the Los Angeles Kings in Las Vegas on Friday.

…good to have him back. Now start practicing shooting the puck, which you did far too infrequently during the preseason.

Meanwhile, Strang also reports that  Ryan Callahan, who was cleared for contact last week, wass in a yellow non-contact Tuesday along with Carl Hagelin.

Callahan told Strang that the yellow jersey was for drill purposes only and that he remains cleared for contact. He added that he thinks Thursday is a no-go.

Here's the power play units from today without Callahan…
