Pitkanen due back for Canes Saturday

Posted March 15, 2013

— Joni Pitkanen, who has missed more than a month with a lower body injury, will return to the ice Saturday for the Carolina Hurricanes, team GM Jim Rutherford said.

Tuomo Ruutu traveled with the team to Tampa Bay for Saturday's game against the Lightning but isn't expect to suit up. Rutherford estimated he'd be back in the lineup within two weeks.

    Great news. Make Harrison a scratch, his play Thursday was just awful. Maybe if he sits for a game he will get the memo.
