According to many news outlets in the Minneapolis and St.Paul area, Pierre Marc-Bouchard is expected to play his first game in over a year since suffering from post-concussion syndrome.

After being evaluated over the summer months and continually improving there was hope he would start the season in St. Paul.

He started contact drills with the team near the start of training camp after arriving early to discuss his situation with head coach Todd Richards and General Manager Chuck Fletcher.

No official statement has been released from the team.

More from St.Paul including an interview with Media Relations Director Aaron Sickman tomorrow as this story develops.
