Hartman (lower body) won't suit up for Tuesday's home matchup with the Flyers, but could return to the lineup for Friday's game against Columbus, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The 'Hawks hope to have Hartman back in the lineup as soon as possible, as the 22-year-old winger was playing extremely well before going down with a lower-body injury in Friday's matchup with Nashville, having tallied two points (one goal, one assist) through the first two games of the season. The 2013 first-round pick appears poised to return to action Friday in Columbus, so those keeping tabs on his availability can expect an update on his status ahead of that contest.
