Calvin de Haan returns; more WJHC prospect news

 Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan, who missed the past two games with a possible concussion, will return to action today in Canada's game against Switzerland this afternoon.

According to the Canadian Press, de Haan said he thought the hit from Swiss forward Mauro Jorg that forced him out of the lineup was questionable.

"From what I remember, yeah," de Haan told the CP. "I was the last guy off the ice and I don't know if he was going to the bench or not, but he kind of blindsided me. But, it's part of the sport and it's over now."
