Yuzuru Hanyu’s expected return to the ice won’t be the only drama unfolding this week in the NHK Trophy at Osaka’s Namihaya Dome, where spots in the Grand Prix Final will also be on the line.

Hanyu, the Olympic and world champion, who was injured in an unfortunate collision with Yan Han at the Cup of China in Shanghai three weeks ago, has been recuperating in Japan and did not return to his training base in Toronto as originally planned. His second-place finish after the accident has put him in good position to qualify for the GP Final in Barcelona, Spain, next month.
