The Peterborough Examiner - - SPORTS - MIKE DAVIES EX­AM­INER SPORTS DI­REC­TOR mdavies@post­

A free fam­ily skate will be held fol­low­ing the Pe­tes Fam­ily Day mati­nee game at 2 p.m. Mon­day at the Memo­rial Cen­tre.

Pe­tes play­ers will join fans on the ice fol­low­ing their game against the Sud­bury Wolves. Skaters must pur­chase a ticket to the game to par­tic­i­pate.

It’s all part of Five Coun­ties Chil­dren’s Cen­tre Fam­ily Day with the Pe­tes. Five Coun­ties of­fi­cials will par­tic­i­pate in open­ing cer­e­monies and all pro­ceeds of the chuck-a-puck con­test will go to Five Coun­ties.

Gallant up­date

Zach Gallant will re­turn to Peter­bor­ough on Fri­day to visit an eye spe­cial­ist.

Gallant has been home in Oakville rest­ing af­ter tak­ing a stick to the eye in a game in Ottawa last week. Pe­tes GM Mike Oke said doc­tors were wait­ing for blood in the back of Gallant’s eye to dis­si­pate be­fore they could get a clear look. Oke said Gallant has not com­plained of any vi­sion is­sues but doc­tors have not yet been able to get a full view of his eye.

Oke said Gallant has not par­tic­i­pated in any phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity. If given the green light to re­turn to skat­ing and work­ing out, Oke said it’s still likely take Gallant a week or two to get back into game readi­ness.

Tam­mela up­date

Pe­tes GM Mike Oke said there is no clear timetable right now for Jonne Tam­mela to re­turn to the Pe­tes.

Tam­mela is in Syra­cuse, N.Y. re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing from knee surgery with staff of the Tampa Bay Light­ning ’s af­fil­i­ate Syra­cuse Crunch.

Oke said all indi­ca­tions are the surgery was suc­cess­ful and Tam­mela is im­prov­ing but he said no date has been given to him for a po­ten­tial re­turn. Tam­mela, the Pe­tes 2015 CHL Im­port Draft se­lec­tion, has dressed in just two games for the Pe­tes.

Ros­ter notes

Cole Fraser re­turned to de­fence af­ter play­ing for­ward for two games on Thurs­day with rookie De­clan Chisholm play­ing for­ward .... Pavel Go­golev was a healthy scratch.
