Not sure yet. I'll see if Mackey or Bombulie post any pre-practice videos of Rust skating. I can tell you before the break, when he would skate before practice, he was only using one hand on the stick for two straight practices. The one hand (believe it is his right arm/hand/wrist that is injured) never touched the stick once while he was skating. He took a few one handed "shovel" type shots at the net.

Would be good to see him using two-hands this week, but sounds like he is still a few weeks away.

The net is yours TJ. You're the only goaltender we've got.

I was at practice this afternoon but didn't notice if Rust was on the ice or not. There were a couple guys out early in gear but I don't know who they were.

I was there, too. Rust didn’t skate. I was specifically looking for him.

Before the break, Rust was still skating with Rowney before official practice, and neither of the two clips I saw on two different days had him using his right hand/arm. He was literally stickhandling and kind of shovel shots at the net with one hand on the stick. I'd say he is still 2-3 weeks away.
