Volchenkov was activate from injured reserve Monday, John Glennon of The Tennesseean reports.Volchenkov has been steadily progressing towards a return, and it appears he has finally reached that point.

Volchenkov (lower body) joined the team for Wednesday's practice, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.He skated as part of the fourth defensive pairing with Victor Bartley during the session. It seems unlikely that he'll be healthy enough to play Thursday against the Wild, but a return within the next week may be realistic for the blueliner.

Although Volchenkov (lower body) was expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Sharks, he ended up being placed on injured reserve.The Predators recalled Anthony Bitetto from AHL Milwaukee, and he'll presumably claim a spot in Tuesday's lineup in Volchenkov's stead. Evidently, Volchenkov hasn't progressed as fast as the team had hoped, and won't be eligible to play until Saturday's game against the Flyers.

Volchenkov (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Sharks, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.Volchenkov missed Saturday's game against the Devils with the injury.

Volchenkov recorded a rare point in Tuesday's win over the Lightning, taking credit on a secondary assist in Seth Jones' second-period marker.Volchenkov has only five points on the season, all of which have been assists. In fact, he hasn't scored a goal since Mar. 19, 2013, amounting to an 108-game drought. Volchenkov does a decent enough job of piling up hits, but that's usually a category that can be easily addressed by a player on the wavier wire that offers more offensive upside to boot.
