Scottie Upshall is apparently a fast healer.

The veteran forward was cleared to skate with the full group at Edmonton Oilers training camp, head coach Todd McLellan told reporters Monday.

"He's worked hard to recover and deserves an opportunity to make this team," McLellan said.

On Thursday, Sportsnet's Mark Spector reported that Upshall failed his physical with the club and he would be unable to participate "for a few weeks," rendering his opportunity with Edmonton "expired" for all intents and purposes.

The 34-year-old, who will turn 35 on Oct. 7, was invited to Oilers camp on a professional tryout after spending the last three seasons with the St. Louis Blues.
