For the first time since he collapsed during a practice on November 14, Calgary Flames defenseman TJ Brodie stepped onto the ice along with his team on Sunday.

Brodie, who has missed the team’s last five games, has been listed as a game-time decision for Monday night’s contest against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 29-year old was taken to the hospital following the November 14 incident. He was later discharged that day and has been recovering at home since. Flames doctor Ian Auld has stated that the belief Is that Brodie’s episode is related to a fainting rather than a brain issue.

Brodie looked right at home as he took part in drills during Sunday’s optional skate.

Prior to the skate, Brodie said, “It’s good to be back, feeling good, it would be nice to get back on the ice with the guys again, and try to get back up to speed.”

For Brodie to be available to play Monday night he will need to be cleared by the medical staff.

This season, the six-foot-one d-man has eight assists in 21 games while averaging 19:13 of ice time each game.

Brodie re-joined the Flames in Philadelphia during the team’s current four game road trip.
