Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp likely will return from a lower-body injury next week, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said on Thursday.
Sharp has been out since suffering of an apparent leg injury against the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 4. He was expected to miss 3-4 weeks. He began practicing with the team again on Tuesday.
Sharp will add to a hot Hawks team, who are coming off of four straight wins.
