Ehrhoff to Rejoin Sabres Tues

Standard Spin: Sabres' defenseman Christian Ehrhoff is set to return from an undisclosed upper-body injury that cost him the last 11 games.  He'll be back in action Tuesday against the Devils.  

It's debatable whether Ehrhoff even deserves to go back into lineups, as he struggled to produce offense through the first half.  His 17 points in 37 games are a pretty big letdown for owners that drafted him as a #1 D-man, and his PP points - 1 goal, 6 assists - represent a huge decline from last season with the Canucks.  His defensive stats have never been his strength either, so Ehrhoff is close to the bubble of starting lineups until he can show some signs of life.  (Jan.23)
