Marc Staal Healthy for 2013-2014 Campaign

Alex Silverberg

At Team Canada’s three-day Olympic camp last week, New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal revealed that he is healthy and ready to start the season. The 26-year-old all star suffered a small retinal tear in his right eye and a broken orbital bone after taking a puck to the face in a March 5 game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"It's good. Really good. I had a really good summer of training and I feel really good," Staal said. "When I'm on the ice, I don't really notice it at all. I'm excited and anxious just to start the season up and get it going."

The shutdown defenseman also addressed issues surrounding his brief return to the lineup during last season’s playoffs.

"It was more of just adapting to the depth perception and things like that when I was coming back,” Staal explained. "It just wasn't clicking when I was trying to come back in the playoffs there. But with the time off and the training now, everything's back to normal and I'm feeling really good."

With Staal healthy, the Rangers have a formidable defensive corps of Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi, Michael Del Zotto, Anton Stralman with John Moore, Justin Falk and Aaron Johnson battling it out for the sixth and final spot.
