Markov activated, could play for Habs
The Montreal Canadiens announced Saturday that Andrei Markov has been taken off injured reserve and is available for their game Saturday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

Markov has not played since Nov. 13, 2010, and he has played just seven games since the start of the 2010-11 season after suffering consecutive tears of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Markov will participate in the warm-up skate with his teammates prior to the game and a decision on whether he will dress or not will be made afterwards.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
