The Los Angeles Kings received some good news on Saturday when Jarret Stoll returned to practice for the first time since he took a hit from San Jose's Raffi Torres on May 14.

Torres was suspended by the NHL for the remainder of the second-round series for the Game 1 check to Stoll's head.

Stoll skated for about 15 minutes on Friday and rejoined the team Saturday for non-contact drills. But Kings coach Darryl Sutter warned that despite the progress there is no timetable for Stoll's return to the lineup. He will not play in Game 6 on Sunday in San Jose.

"It is what it is, he's got a brain injury," Sutter told ESPN.com. "It's not funny. He's got a brain injury. He can't play. It's unlike any other injury. You can't play with that. It's very simple."

Stoll had one assist in seven playoff games before suffering the injury. He had seven goals and 11 assists this season and played in all 48 of the Kings' regular season games.
