Joe Finley made it through today’s practice at rookie camp without any issues. When asked about his hip injury, he quickly responded, “Yeah, my lower-body injury is feeling better.” Even the young guys are in mid-season form with the injury secrecy (it is too bad his coach outed the ailment yesterday).

Finley said he still doesn’t know if he will be able to play Friday in the game against the Flyers prospects. As for the transition to forward, he thinks it is going well, but sometimes, “it feels like I’m not doing enough.” But he also said a member of the coaching staff said that’s a good thing.
