Kris Versteeg (hip) will draw back into the lineup on Friday.

That's not surprising given that Versteeg was activated from the injured reserve Thursday. Based on Friday's practice lines, he'll likely be skating on the third unit with Mark Jankowski and Garnet Hathaway. Versteeg is also expected to get some power-play time. This will be his first game since Nov. 24.

Kris Versteeg (hip) hasn't been confirmed yet for Friday's game.

It seems very likely that Versteeg will make his return on Friday given that the Flames activated him off the injured reserve on Wednesday, but first he needs to get through Thursday's practice. "(Versteeg) is getting real close to game-ready," Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said on Tuesday. "He’ll practice Thursday and we’re getting to a point where he’s going to be game ready." Versteeg hasn't played since Nov. 24.

Kris Versteeg (hip) might make his return on Tuesday.

Nothing has been guaranteed, but Versteeg did skate on the third line with Mark Jankowski and Garnet Hathaway during Monday's practice. Versteeg hasn't been able to play since Nov. 24 and it would certainly be a boost to the Flames to get him back now as they attempt to claw into the playoffs.

Head coach Glen Gulutzan said that Versteeg will get in a few practices this week and they'll take it from there. If we don't see Versteeg back some time in the coming week, he'll likely be ready in another weeks time. He has three goals and eight points in 22 games this season.

Kris Versteeg (hip) has gone to New York to be re-evaluated by his surgeon.

If that appointment goes well, then Versteeg can move closer towards returning to the Flames. "Then you go from there — hopefully get into practices and then as you build that up, you build the contact back in," Versteeg said. "I feel good … but it’s kind of up to the surgeon and what he sees." He last played on Nov. 24.

Kris Versteeg (hip) was on the ice in full equipment before practice on Monday.

Kris Versteeg (hip) isn't using crutches anymore.

Versteeg, who underwent surgery on Dec. 4 can't skate yet, but he is able to participate in some strengthening work. He's scheduled to see his surgeon on Jan. 22 and should have a better idea of his timetable after that. "We’re trying to figure that out," Versteeg said. "That’s when I’ll know more about when I can get back on the ice. There’s no timeline — even when I go back on the ice, it’s not like it’s going to be a week or two weeks or one month. With this type of injury, there’s a patterning process, and you almost have to train your body to skate again … it’s going to be a process."

Kris Versteeg is scheduled to have hip surgery on Monday.

As previously reported, the Flames have listed Versteeg as month-to-month. He sustained the injury on Nov. 24. "He'd had some history with the hip," said Flames GM Brad Treliving. "He tweaked it. He zigged when he should've zagged. It's not something like he blocks a shot and you have a bruise there, or somebody hit him and that caused the problem. He turned and got jammed up and put stress on the joint. What we're dealing with is a hip labrum issue."
