Wiercioch has not played since the injury. The Senators are letting him have some time before making him, or many details, available to the media. But he is doing well.
He has been attending team meetings.
"He needs to be around," Coach Kleinendorst said. "There is no question he is going to get back to 100 percent. It's just a matter of when he gets through this, he'll be a better player because of his experience and what he's been going through."
