skated on his own Tuesday before practice, the team announced.
Staal, who has not played since being struck in the eye with a puck March 5, is expected to address the media later Tuesday afternoon.

It is not immediately clear when he will return to the lineup. The Rangers have provided no timeline for the injury.
