The Phoenix Coyotes are expected to get Rostislav Klesla back in action on Tuesday after he was activated from the IR, according to Dave Vest of the team’s Web site.

The 31-year-old blueliner’s had an injury-ravaged start to this season. He suffered a concussion in the preseason and is recovering from a lower-body issue that sidelined him since Oct. 24. Klesla has only been able to play in seven games so far.

Vest notes that Jeff Halpern (upper body) and Dave Schlemko (lower body) won’t be able to play against the Vancouver Canucks tonight, however.
