Last month we reported that Voracek would miss about four weeks after sustaining a knee injury while playing for the KHL’s Lev Praha.

That timetable proved to be pretty accurate and if the lockout were to end today, it looks like Voracek would be able to play for the Philadelphia Flyers.

He scored a goal in his return that was assisted by Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara, according to Nova Sport’s Roman Jedlicka and the KHL.

Calgary Flames forward Jiri Hudler was also a member of Lev Praha earlier this season, but he was released after suffering an abdominal muscle injury.

Voracek signed a four-year, $17 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers as a restricted free agent over the summer. He was projected to make $3.5 million in 2012-13 before the lockout started.
