Buzz: Marian Gaborik Is Skating A Lot But Isn’t Taking Contact

At Brad Richards’ charity skate on Staten Island, Marian Gaborik told Katie Strong that his shoulder is getting stronger and that he is skating 4-5 times per week.

He isn’t taking any contact and Steve Zipay says that it is unclear if he will be able to start the season if the lockout ends in December.

Gaborik has said that besides getting his strength back, he also needs to get his confidence back.

Gaborik has been skating and on the ice since August.
