Bolland's ready to go; Niemi to start

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Dave Bolland skated between Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp in the Blackhawks' first practice since returning from their eight-game road trip.
Out since November back surgery, Bolland will return to the lineup in Wednesday's home game vs. St. Louis.
It's uncertain which forward will sit out, but Andrew Ladd skated off early in Tuesday's workout with what coach Joel Quenneville called a lower body injury. Niklas Hjalmarsson didn't practice, Quenneville saying that was for ``maintenance.''
Antti Niemi will get the call in goal vs. the Blues.
The other noteworthy bit of news off Tuesday's practice at Johnny's Ice House was the return of Adam Burish. He skated with the full team for the first time since undergoing major knee surgery in training camp. Burish said he'll likely be able to return to the lineup a week or two after the NHL break for the Winter Olympics. That'd mean a return in mid-March.
