Schlemko (hand) was on the ice Monday with strength and conditioning coach Pierre Allard, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Schlemko, who underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment from his right hand Oct. 18, is coming up on the fourth week of rehabilitation. The original prognosis set his recovery time at four weeks. The 30-year-old defenseman, who posted two goals, 16 assists and was plus-4 in 62 games for the Sharks last season, should step into a nightly role once he's deemed ready to play.
