Vancouver Canucks players Sven Baertschi and Troy Stecher are both expected to return from injuries Saturday night against the Calgary Flames.

To make room on the roster, Adam Gaudette has been reassigned to the Utica Comets of the AHL.

Baertschi has been out of the lineup with a concussion since late October. The 26-year-old has three goals and six points in only 10 games this season.

Stecher has been recovering from a concussion he suffered on Dec. 19 in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 24-year-old has one goal and 12 points in 31 games this season.

Gaudette, 22, has split the season between the Canucks and Comets. In 31 NHL games, he has two goals and six points.
