He's Baaaaaaack!

Way ahead of schedule, Johnny Gaudreau is returning to the Flames lineup tonight.

NHL: Calgary Flames at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this was unexpected:

Gaudreau has been out since mid-November after taking 21 slashes on the hand during a win over the Minnesota Wild. The star forward was supposed to miss 4-6 weeks, but is apparently ready to go after only 3 weeks. Gaudreau broke a finger and had it surgically repaired and is back sooner than expected. This is good news for the Flames seeing they are having a hard time scoring goals.
