I have just started as a PT for an icehockey team in Sweden. A player has just injured his knee medially due to a subluxation after a hit into the boards following an awkward twist. I am putting together a cohesive timeline of return to skating for the coaching staff and management. It's going to be a few weeks down the road, but any advice on specific dynamic ground testing that should be fulfilled prior to his return to skating? Any experience and expertise would be greatly appreciated.

I know I'm a bit late in replying but for this kind of injury, I would suggest that you take the kid to a physical therapist. He can do treatments and exercises to help the knee heal and move better. Exercises are important for preventing stiffness, decreasing swelling, and helping the normal knee movement to return.
