On an anonymous tip, an un-named freelance journalist and film crew caught up with Steve Grobl at his posh vacation retreat just outside La Jolla, California. They report that Steve is now back in his Rangers uniform following reconstructive arthroscopic knee surgery in late September.

In the above photo, Steve shows several hundred small pieces of cartilage removed from his injured right knee.

Steve said, "My performance was suffering, and I thought my playing days might be over, but then my brother suggested I see renouned sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Don Shelbourne". "Shelbourne decided on surgery and in a one and a half hour procedure, Don went in and removed all this junk."

Steve's future looks bright once again.
"I should be back in game shape in a few more weeks, then we can concentrate on the cup."

Rangers fans are celebrating across the country.
