UNDATED (KMOX) – Former St. Louis Blues captain David Backes is making a way ahead of schedule return to NHL ice after colon surgery.

Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy announced the veteran forward will be in Wednesday night’s lineup against Tampa Bay.

Backes had surgery on November 2 and was expected to miss about 8 weeks for recovery.

He was sidelined a dozen games.
