Ryan Whitney has reportedly been pain-free from his ankle woes since the end of last season.

He has been marred by injury the past two years, but getting off to a positive start with a full training regime should bode better for him entering the 2012-13 campaign. Whitney can bring offensive skills from the back end and he'll be counted on to supply plenty of minutes on a shallow Edmonton defense corps, but he will have to stay healthy to do so.
