LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- After taking last season off, Olympic champion Evan Lysacek is back on the Grand Prix schedule.
Lysacek drew Skate America and Trophee Bompard on the list of Grand Prix assignments released Monday by the International Skating Union. He has not competed since Vancouver, where he became the first American man to win the Olympic gold medal since Brian Boitano in 1988.
Lysacek skipped last season because of a heavy schedule of promotions and appearances, including touring with the "Stars on Ice" 25th anniversary tour. But he did not rule out a return to competition, saying in January he was still doing run-throughs of his Olympic programs and working on quadruple jumps.
