New York Rangers star Eric Lindros has been cleared to begin his concussion rehabilitation program. Eric is progressing very well, and we are encouraged with his recovery to date," said Dr. Karen Johnston, a neurological specialist in Montreal.
 

The program consists of light cardiovascular activity, with controlled workload and heart rate.

Lindros, sidelined indefinitely, sustained the eighth concussion of his career -- and sixth in the past four years -- during the Rangers' 2-1 loss to Washington on Jan. 28 when he took a hard hit from Jason Doig in the second period.

He was examined by Johnston the next day.

In his third season with the Rangers, the 1995 NHL MVP has 10 goals and 22 assists in 39 games.

The All-Star center was traded to New York by Philadelphia after sitting out a season because of a bitter feud with Flyers general manager Bob Clarke and while recovering from his sixth concussion.

So I assume he plans on making a return to the ice?

I think he's taking a huge risk by playing again, I thought he should have retired when he left the Flyers and that was two more concussions ago on top of the +/-8 he had in Philly. How many times can he get a concussion and play again, he needs to think about his long term health. If he does return, he probably wont play with the same intensity and thats his game. Dont forget his brother had to retire from the Islanders after suffering too many concussions. I think Lindros cant stand the thought of hanging up the skates without winning a Stanley Cup.
