Canucks' Philip Larsen: No longer on injured reserve

Larsen (illness) is no longer listed on the team's injured reserve, per the NHL Media site. He skated alongside Nikita Tryamkin during Monday's practice session, Jon Abbot of TSN 1040 reports.

Larsen was also on the second power play unit during the session, so it's quite possible he will return to the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Minnesota Wild. He was reportedly suffering from a bacterial infection that cost him multiple weeks, but appears on the brink of full health. He's never been a huge offensive contributor at the top level, however, so his return likely won't have a big overall impact on the fantasy landscape when it does occur.
