The 33-year-old fractured his ankle in a game against the Dallas Stars on March 31. After undergoing surgery and taking it easy throughout the summer, his latest CT Scan was positive, and he told The Athletic's Michael Russo he's confident he'll be ready for training camp.
Suter has begun skating periodically and said his ankle feels good and should return to normal. He plans to play in a benefit game on Aug. 26 that will help raise money for the Jim Johannson Legacy Fund and the USA Hockey Foundation. American stars like Auston Matthews, Dylan Larkin, James van Riemsdyk, and teammate Zach Parise will also participate in the event.
Despite the injury, Suter had a very productive 2017-18 campaign. He tallied six goals and tied his career high of 51 points in 78 games.
