Absent former Catamount hopeful for return

Following a breakout 2007-2008 rookie season, former men’s hockey standout Torrey Mitchell has been notably absent from the NHL this year due to a broken leg on the second day of training camp.

After re-injuring his leg during a rehab assignment, the likelihood of Mitchell playing during 2008-2009 seemed dim, but San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan said this past week that Mitchell’s current rehab is progressing nicely and his return for the post season is certainly probable.
