Biron is back
By Katie Strang
Goaltender Martin Biron, who missed the first two days of training camp for "personal reasons," appears to be back for Day 3.
The 36-year-old backup is listed among the group of players slated to take the ice in the third session Friday afternoon.
It's interesting to note, however, that ex-Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg is also still slated to skate Friday. Hedberg, who backed up Martin Brodeur in New Jersey the past three seasons, joined the Rangers in training camp after signing a professional tryout with the club.
Asked Thursday, Hedberg said he didn't know what to make of the audition, but knew it was an opportunity he was "excited" to explore.
J.T. Miller also appears to be OK after leaving the ice during conditioning laps Thursday with what coach Alain Vigneault said was a "tweaked hamstring."
Miller is also expected to skate with Biron and the third group.
