Baertschi (foot) will return to the lineup Tuesday for a home game against the Wild, The Province reports.

Baertschi missed two games following his career-high three points against the Coyotes last Wednesday, and his fantasy owners will have to hope that doesn't slow his momentum. The Swiss winger is averaging a career-best 14:39 of ice time this season, and the Canucks are using him a bit on the power play (1:25 per game). He'll be worth plugging back into deeper leagues, but those playing in shallow formats are advised to seek alternatives, as Baertschi has yet to evolve into a star despite his early selection -- 13th overall -- in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
