Johan Harju was a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game last night against the Atlanta Thrashers, and has been returned to the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals today. 

 

Harju, who was recalled for a five-game stint back in November, played three games during this call-up.  He picked up a goal and an assist and was a +1 in the three contests.

The 24-year-old recorded his first NHL point on an assist on December 4th against the Colorado Avalanche, and potted his first NHL goal December seventh against Miikka Kiprusoff and the Calgary Flames.

Captain Vincent Lecavalier returned from a broken hand last night, so Harju will benefit from more playing time in Norfolk.
