Rookie Brady Tkachuk will return to the Ottawa Senators' lineup Thursday for their clash with the Vegas Golden Knights after missing the past nine games with a torn ligament in his leg, the team announced.
Tkachuk has been limited to just four appearances early in his first NHL season, as Thursday's contest will mark his first since Oct. 15. The 19-year-old has been incredibly productive when healthy, having put up three goals and six points in four games.
After suffering through more off-ice distractions earlier in the week, the Senators will be looking to build off Tuesday's commanding 7-3 win over the New Jersey Devils.
