Finally some good news for New Jersey Devils forward Ryane Clowe.

Clowe has been medically cleared to practice and play. He’s been out since October 13 with a concussion, but don’t expect the Devils to rush him back as Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record shares.

“We’re going to take our time and just make sure everything is 100 percent,” Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said.

Lamoriello says Clowe could be back in the Devils lineup next week. He’s played in just six games this season and has one assist.

The Devils would love to see just what they can get out of their big offseason signing. Clowe signed a five-year, $24.25 million deal as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The team has been patient in allowing Clowe to get back to full health after he suffered at least one concussion with the New York Rangers last season and possibly another with the San Jose Sharks earlier on.

    Ryan Clowe is a dirty player, I rank him right there with Sean Averys and The Raffi Torres players, and he is expressing concerns over his multiple concussions. I have very little sympathy for people who play dirty, run other players from behind and then when they are hurt themselves whine and complain. I am all for flushing the toilet of these kinds of players and getting rid of them. There is a huge difference between tough hard hitting players and the dirty play of a Ryan Clowe, shame is he is talwented and doesnt need to play like that. Any player who would reach off the bench to break up a two on one rush belongs in the stands, not on the ice. Best revenge of all has been eliminating them from the playoffs and winning the cup. Here is hoping Clowe gets what he deserves, a very fast retirement. It would upgrade the league in my opinion.

        One of the worst signings in recent years. I’ve always liked Clowe’s game, but his injury history and the salary/years are a head scratcher.
