Forward Aleksander Barkov will return to the Florida Panthers lineup Monday against the Tampa Bay Lightning after missing 10 games with a broken bone in his hand, according to the Miami Herald.

Barkov practiced Friday and was on the ice for the morning skate Saturday, but did not play in the first of a back-to-back set against the Lightning at Amalie Arena. He is expected to reunite on the Panthers' first line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr.

Barkov, 20, has three goals and six points in seven games this season.
