Montreal Canadiens captain Saku Koivu said yesterday that the stomach cancer that has sidelined him this season was in full remission. Koivu, 27, said he planned to start working out and could return by the end of the regular season in April, if he can maintain a schedule of six workouts a week. "The way the guys are playing right now, I'll have to ask coach [Michel Therrien] if I can even make the team," Koivu joked. Team doctor David Mulder said it was unlikely Koivu could play this season, but added "nothing's impossible" and noted that Koivu had so far "proved us wrong in every case" with his recovery.
