Pitkanen due back for Canes Saturday
Posted March 15, 2013
Tampa, Fla. — 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.
