Maple Leafs' Zaitsev back after 17-game absence with broken foot
Zaitsev has been sidelined since Dec. 15 with a broken foot.
His return marks a positive development for a blue line that's still without Morgan Rielly, who is out with an arm injury.
Through 34 games this season, Zaitsev has recorded four goals and six assists in 22:51 of ice time per outing, second on the team in average ice time only to Jake Gardiner.
