Forney cleared to skate
Forney suffered an ankle fracture in April and was forced to miss the World Under-18 Championships in Sweden. He had an operation on the ankle and skated for the first time Wednesday night.
UND coach Dave Hakstol said he was pleased with Forney's progress and that he's ahead of schedule.
Forney will play at UND beginning this fall.
Although he is expected to be picked in the first or second round of Saturday's NHL draft, Forney will not be attending. He has other family commitments.
Jonathan Toews and Sioux recruit Derrick LaPoint will be in Vancouver for the draft, though, Hakstol said.
