Toews on way Back to Brandon

David Toews is expected back with the Brandon Wheat Kings on Monday.

Toews is returning from the camp of the NHL's New York Islanders, but didn't get a chance to participate in the Isles' camp because of a shoulder injury.

The Islanders' medical staff wouldn't clear Toews to participate in training camp, but the word on his shoulder appears to be better now.

"He's seen a handful of other doctors and sought different opionions...we're encouraged with the more recent news for him," says Brandon GM/Coach Kelly McCrimmon, "We were caught off-guard, as was David, based on the fact that he had no issues at all with anything we did on ice or in the gym."

McCrimmon says Toews will practice with the Wheat Kings this week and expects Toews to be able to play in Friday's home opener against Regina.
