Garret Sparks will be back between the pipes on Saturday night as the Toronto Marlies take on the Hartford Wolf Pack.

Sparks made headlines last week when the team suspended him for violating team policy.

Sparks returned to skating with the team on Tuesday, but he did not return to action until Friday when he dressed as backup to Jeff Glass.

In four games with the Marlies this season, Sparks is 3-1 with a .918 save percentage and 2.02 goals-against average.
