Injured RW Rickard Rakell Returns to the Ice



Rickard Rakell

CRANBERRY — Rickard Rakell, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ second-line right winger who is on the Long-Term Injured list because of an unspecified upper-body issue, went through an on-ice workout at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex Sunday morning.

He has missed the past six games and was enduring a miserable season before he was hurt, putting up no goals and just four assists in 17 games.

Defenseman Chad Ruhwedel, who has an unspecified lower-body injury that has forced him to miss the past six games, went through about a 40-minute session on the ice before Rakell came out of the locker room.
