Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller will return from injury to start Monday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, according to reports.
Hiller left after the first period of a Feb. 8 game against the Dallas Stars with a lower-body injury. He's 3-2-1 in six starts this season with a 3.69 goals-against average and .872 save percentage.
"He's ready to play, when we decide to play him," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said.
In his absence, first-year NHLer Viktor Fasth has won four consecutive starts and was named the League's Second Star of the past week. Fasth is 8-0-0 overall to start his career and tied for the League lead in victories.
