Nolan Patrick, who hasn’t played since Oct. 11 still may be several weeks from suiting up. TSN correspondent Bob McKenzie recently took a look at potential prospects for the Canadian National Junior team and he had this to say about Patrick. “Patrick isn't expected back for another two-to-three weeks,” McKenzie writes. “He had sports hernia surgery in the off-season. There were fears he would need the same procedure done on the other side, but the prognosis now is for some rest and rehab. It's expected he will be ready before Dec. 11, but how much hockey will he have played?”
