Walker a Go for Tonight

With Brandon Sutter still on his conditioning assignment in Albany and Jussi Jokinen back in Finland due to the unfortunate death of his father, Dwight Helminen will also be in tonight's lineup to fill the team's void at center. If the lines at yesterday's practice are any indication, Helminen will likely start on a line with Tim Conboy and Walker, as Coach Paul Maurice will want to closely monitor Walker's minutes in his first game back.
To make room for Helminen and Walker, forward Ryan Bayda, who is one of only four players to appear in every game for the Canes this season, will be a healthy scratch.
