Paquette (undisclosed) is available for Wednesday's matchup with Washington and will be activated off injured reserve.

Coach Dominque Ducharme didn't offer any specifics on where Paquette might fit into the lineup, but it will almost certainly be in a bottom-six role. Even before getting hurt, the 28-year-old center periodically served as a healthy scratch and could do so again from time to time this year.
