Nashville, Tenn. — Nashville Predators Executive Vice President/General Manager David Poile issued the following statement regarding the status of goaltender Tomas Vokoun, who has been undergoing treatment for a blood condition called pelvic thrombophlebitis:

 “Today (July 24, 2006) Tomas had a follow-up appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in which his status was reviewed.  The information that we received indicates that his situation has stabilized and was likely a result of a childhood accident as opposed to a more recent development.  While we will continue monitoring his status, there will be no on-going treatment of the condition.  Tomas will no longer be taking blood-thinning medication and he has been given complete clearance to return to action.”
