Viktor Fasth participated in practice Sunday for the first time since suffering a groin injury on Oct. 14 against Los Angeles. The 32-year-old Swede, who is 0-1-1 in two contests this season, still is unsure of when he will return to action. “(Sunday) was the first day with real practice,” Fasth told the team’s web site. “I’ve been skating and doing a lot of work with the goalie coach and the trainers here. But I hope to be back soon.”
