Michal Handzus has been sidelined since Oct. 24 with an upper-body injury, but he thinks he can return soon – maybe even Monday or Wednesday – CSNChicago.com reports.

“I’ve been on a table too long,” Handzus said. “Hopefully this is over and I can have fun in the (locker) room. I haven’t had that in a long time because I’ve been in the training room for too long.”

The 36-year-old was unexpectedly effective for the Chicago Blackhawks in their 2013 Stanley Cup run, but has been limited by this injury issue this season. Handzus has three points in nine games so far in 2013-14.

The veteran center doesn’t plan on dwelling the successes of the spring and summer or the lower moments of the more recent past, admitting that he hasn’t played his best.

Perhaps he’ll get a chance to turn things around this week?
