Despite being assigned to the American Hockey League, coach Alain Vigneault did not rule out a return to Broadway for Filip Chytil.
The 18-year-old, who was a healthy scratch Sunday after being used in a limited role through his first two NHL games, will play this weekend for the Hartford Wolf Pack before the organization reassess whether a recall is needed next week.
"He hadn't played much the last couple games and didn't play the last game. When talking with [General Manager] Jeff [Gorton] yesterday, we felt he needed to play," Vigneault said. "Like we had mentioned before, it's a day-to-day situation here. The best thing for him right now is to go and play a couple games in Hartford on the weekend."
