Pierre-Marc Bouchard Returns To The Lineup

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

Pierre-Marc Bouchard’s long road back from a concussion is near complete.

The Wild playmaker is scheduled to play his first game in nearly 14 months Wednesday night when he suits up against the Phoenix Coyotes.

“I figured that the day would come. You just never knew when,” said coach Todd Richards, who has coached Bouchard in only one game—last season’s opener at Columbus.

“You watch him practice, and he gets you excited because you see the things he can do. Obviously, a game is going to be different, but you’re excited to have him back.”
