UPDATE: Peter Mueller has been activated from IR and is available tomorrow...Shane O'Brien placed on IR retro to January 7.
When Cheryl and I attended part of a practice on December 17th, we noticed that he looked great out there. We also talked about the fact that he wasn't wearing an orange "no contact" jersey. We also found out that, at that point, he has been practicing with the team - and flying across the ice- for about a month.
It's important to note that Mueller will be sporting a new bucket. One that is expected to better protect his head. Let's hope that this helmet keeps his noggin from getting bounced around too much. Just because he has been reactivated doesn't mean that he will play in the next game, as the Avs have proved they don't mind sitting guys who are healthy once again.
