Nolan Patrick's wish as come true. And even Winnipeg Jets fans will be delighted. Philadelphia Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol has confirmed that the young rookie will make a return to action tonight in Winnipeg, Patrick's hometown.
Patrick, selected second overall in this summer’s NHL Draft, has been sidelined since Oct. 24 with a suspected concussion, sustained when he took a hit from Anaheim Ducks forward Chris Wagner, as his head banged against the glass.
The son of former NHLer Steve Patrick was relishing the opportunity to play in Winnipeg and finally he will be able to face the Jets.
In nine games with the Flyers this season, Patrick has amassed a goal and three points.
