Calgary Flames star centre Jonathan Huberdeau is set to return to the lineup Monday against the Los Angeles Kings after missing the past three games with an upper-body injury.

Huberdeau is set to skate on a line with Trevor Lewis and Mikael Backlund.

Acquired from the Florida Panthers in a blockbuster off-season deal, Huberdeau was off to a slow start with the Flames before the injury, registering one goal and five assists in 11 games.
