Svechnikov (finger), as expected, is expected back in action versus Winnipeg on Tuesday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Svechnikov has just two goals in his last 15 contests despite racking up 42 shots over that stretch. The Russian winger has recorded eight assists over that span, including four helpers with the man advantage. With Svechnikov back in the lineup, he should retake his spot on the second line and No. 1 power-play unit.
