Chris Kelly returns to practice

WILMINGTON — When Chris Kelly was injured Dec. 7 — his right fibula fractured on a slash by the Penguins’ Pascal Dupuis — the timeline for a return was four to six weeks. But Saturday marks seven weeks since the injury.

Kelly has had to be patient, but he might finally be nearing a return. He skated with the team on Thursday for the first time since the injury, though not at full contact.
