Nielsen (upper body) was removed from injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's clash with Buffalo.
Nielsen missed the past five games due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the winger notched just one point in his previous seven appearances despite averaging 1:25 of ice time with the man advantage. The Dane should slot into a third-line role but could challenge Brendan Perlini for a top-six spot. Feb 11 1:47 pm (EST)
