The Ottawa Senators announced defenceman Artem Zub will return from an upper-body injury on Saturday when the team hosts the New Jersey Devils.
Zub’s comes a day after the Senators assigned defenceman Nikita Zaitsev to AHL Belleville.
Zub hasn’t played since Oct. 27.
The Russian has one goal and two assists in seven games this season.
Zub gives a boost to a Senators team missing top defenceman Thomas Chabot (concussion).
