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.
