Alexei Emelin is on his way back for the Montreal Canadiens.

Habs head coach Michel Therrien said Emelin got the green light from his doctor in New York on Monday and is expected to play this weekend. Emelin has missed the entire season so far recovering from right knee surgery.

The 27-year-old, who just signed a four-year extension with Montreal, had three goals and 12 points in 38 games.

Montreal plays in Columbus on Friday and hosts the New York Rangers Saturday this weekend.
