Gagne and Markov Set to Return Saturday

Saturday’s games will see the return of two players set to make immediate impacts with their respective teams and fantasy owners alike.


Simon Gagne makes a well-needed return from a groin injury that has kept him on IR since late October.  He’ll be slotted right into the top LW spot and will also see powerplay time so make sure you activate him.  Jon Kalinski is the odd man out for Philly.  Flyers Lines


Andrei Markov will be playing his second game of the season tomorrow against the Islanders – far earlier than the originally diagnosed February return.  Markov will be eased back into the lineup so it’s unsure whether he’ll be on the top D-pairing or power play unit but you know he’ll find his way there soon.  Yannick Weber was sent down but no word on which defenseman will sit tomorrow to make room for Markov.  Habs Lines
