As the Ontario Hockey League playoffs continue, a pair of injured Soo Greyhounds forwards continue to work toward getting back to game action, though their return to the lineup isn’t expected in the playoffs.

Forward Tanner Dickinson, a prospect of the NHL’s St. Louis Blues, was injured during a game at home in late-January against the Barrie Colts.

Dickinson suffered a broken femur and the Greyhounds said at the time that the high-scoring forward was expected to miss significant time.

While his return to the lineup this season isn’t expected, the good news for Dickinson is that he’s been back on the ice skating recently.

Greyhounds general manager Kyle Raftis confirmed on Wednesday night that Dickinson has been on the ice skating on his own without contact as he recovers from injury.

Meanwhile, rookie forward Ethan Montroy is progressing well after surgery earlier in the season.

Montroy, who last played in a shootout win over the Flint Firebirds on March 18, is back skating with the team, but with no contact.
