Staal Doesn’t Directly Mention Eye, But Says 100% Healthy

Jim Cerny at Blueshirts United recently interviewed Marc Staal, and while he did not specifically mention the eye injury that forced him to miss the second half of last season and all but one game in the playoffs, the Rangers defenseman said he's 100% healthy this summer.

Here's an excerpt from Cerny's report…

"Staal, who has called this “one of the more normal summers recently” since he is feeling completely healthy and not dealing with concussion symptoms or a broken foot like the past two off-seasons, is training diligently every day to prepare for his first camp under the team’s new head coach Alain Vigneault. He was back on the ice and skating two weeks ago, already."

Staal adds that in a few weeks he'll be heading to Team Canada’s Olympic camp and then on to New York for training camp.

…so when Staal says he's completely healthy, does that mean his eye as well? Sort of confusion since the eye isn't directly mentioned.

…the players invited to Team Canada camp will not be practing, so we won't know if Staal's eye injury is still effecting him until Rangers camp (H/T to reader thelink44).
