Martin Hanzal made his return from an upper body injury on Thursday night, collecting eight hits and two minor penalties in Arizona's 4-1 loss to Calgary.
Hanzal, who hadn't played since Jan. 3rd, was a wrecking ball out there during his 17:14 of ice time. He now has 29 PIMs and 94 hits on the season, his hits are good for third on the team behind Michael Stone and Shane Doan.

Hanzal scored one goal, sat in the penalty box twice for four PIM, fired two SOG and delivered two hits in a busy 17 minutes of ice time. This broke a five-game pointless drought and represented his first goal since his Nov. 14 hat trick.
