Clowe said he's been cleared for full practice and contact. He's not going to Columbus, but will skate in NJ Tuesday.— Tom Gulitti (@TGfireandice) December 9, 2013
Clowe is now cleared for contact and practice, though he won't be traveling with the team to Columbus for Tuesday's game. With that news, it means that he'll be a full participant in practice as he begins to work his way back into game form.
It's not clear when he'll play, but the former Shark and Ranger is on his way back into the lineup. He'll add size and grittiness to the lineup once he returns, though his ice time may be limited upon his return.
Side note: Martin Brodeur will get the start against the Blue Jackets.
