Yale goalie Jeff Malcolm doubtful for the weekend

Yale coach Keith Allain isn't expecting goaltender Jeff Malcolm to return for this weekend's games at Quinnipiac and Princeton. But the senior did some limited team work in practice Wednesday for the first time since his injury on Feb. 1.

Allain ruled Malcolm out for Quinnipiac on Friday, and has yet to decide on Nick Maricic or Colin Wilson as his starter. Though he didn't completely rule out Malcolm for Princeton, Allain hinted it's unlikely.

"He's getting closer, and when he's healthy he'll play," Allain said. "There's a chance (he could play Saturday) but I wouldn't count on that either."

Malcolm's work Wednesday included getting on the ice to face a shots. Allain said he's mostly doing conditioning and "warm-up stuff", with a possibility his workload could increase today.
