Flyers forward Simon Gagne cleared for full activity after head injury

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Simon Gagne was cleared for full activity Saturday, 10 days after the Philadelphia Flyers forward was knocked out of a game and sidelined with vision problems and dizziness.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Gagne passed his baseline tests and was expected to practise with the team on Sunday. If all goes well, he is expected to play Monday against the New York Rangers.

Gagne hasn't played since he was knocked out of a game against Florida on Oct. 24, when his jaw crashed into the shoulder of Florida defenceman Jay Bouwmeester on a high check. Gagne tried to play a few shifts, but left the game after he experienced dizziness.

He skated alone for about 30 minutes on Tuesday and said he felt better, but not quite ready to play.
