Wild forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard, who suffered a season-ending concussion last year, says he has been "pretty much symptom-free" the past few weeks.
Bouchard, not technically locked out because he was not cleared to play by Oct. 11, has been skating daily with Wild coaches at Xcel Energy Center and practiced last week with the Houston Aeros.
He will see team doctors this week and hopes to be ready for training camp if the lockout ends.
"The last few weeks I've been pretty good, so I'm optimistic about it," Bouchard said.
Bouchard, 28, is in the last year of a five-year deal. He is the third-leading scorer (327 points) in Wild history and has played the second-most games (522).
