Aki Berg is expected to return to the Maple leaf lineup for tonight's game against the Thrashers.

Berg, who has been out of action since January 26th with a strained ribcage muscle, skated hard in practice yesterday and is awaiting medical clearance to return to action. We doubt there are many out there who have Berg on their fantasy rosters, so this news is hardly earth shattering from a hockey pool perspective.
