Flyers left winger James van Riemsdyk will return to the lineup Saturday afternoon against the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins.

It will be JVR's first game since Jan. 12. He missed 15 games - the Flyers were just 6-6-3 in that span - because of a concussion.

Scouts from numerous teams are at the Wells Fargo Center for today's 1 p.m. matinee.

The Flyers are in fourth place in the East - one point ahead of New Jersey and two points in front of the Penguins.

The Pens will also get a player back from a concussion. Former Flyer Arron Asham, who has missed 13 games, will be back in the lineup.
