Red Wings' Howard to return Tuesday: report
Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard reportedly was activated from injured reserve on Monday an dwill be available for the team Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers

The Detroit Red Wings on Monday sent goaltender Petr Mrazek to the American Hockey League, paving the way for Jimmy Howard to return from injured reserve.

The Detroit Free Press and MLive.com reported Monday that Howard will be activated from IR and be available to play Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Howard left a game Jan. 20 against the St. Louis Blues in the second period with pain in his knee; he had missed nearly three weeks in December with a knee injury. This time Howard said he only expected to miss about a week after having fluid drained from the knee, and he previously had targeted a return for Tuesday against the Flyers.

In 29 games the 29-year-old is 9-12-8 with a 2.64 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
