Rob Klinkhammer is expected to return to action on Saturday.

Klinkhammer was out with an ankle injury and a setback has caused him to play in only eight games this season. The winger has only one goal thus far. "It just lingers, it’s one of those nagging injuries that suck," Klinkhammer said. "I’ve heard a lot of people say that they think a break is better and I can kind of see why now. I kind of wish I broke my leg instead of this. But it’s something you have to deal with. Guys deal with injuries everywhere in the league, so it’s nothing new, so I’m just going to have to battle through it."

It’s been a while, so it’s just trying to stay positive and stick with it every day."
