Stastny (foot) will return to the lineup for Friday's matchup with Minnesota, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Coach Paul Maurice wants to ease Stastny back into the lineup following his eight-game absence, so the 35-year-old forward is expected to skate on Winnipeg's fourth line Saturday. Stastny's picked up four goals and eight points through 11 contests this campaign.
