Vancouver Canucks left wing Mason Raymond could make his return to the lineup this week.
Raymond has been sidelined since suffered a fractured vertebrae in June during the Stanley Cup Finals.
The injury occurred when Raymond got tangled with Boston's Johnny Boychuk and was checked backward into the boards. He wound up being immobilized for two months.
Raymond practiced Monday, taking a regular turn with Ryan Kesler and David Booth, and will join the team for a three-game road trip that gets underway Wednesday at Colorado.
The 26-year-old Raymond had 15 goals and 24 assists in 70 games last season and recorded a career-high 25 goals in 2009-10.
