The Colorado Avalanche forward John Mitchell will return to the ice tonight against the Ottawa Senators, according to Mike Chambers of The Denver Post.

The 29-year-old center hasn't played since April 10 of last season.  He has been suffering from concussion-like symptoms and migraines. Head coach Patrick Roy said Mitchell will most likely play on the fourth line until he is 100% at which time he will hopefully get back on the third line. Mitchell scored 32 points in 75 games last year.  He has had trouble staying healthy throughout his career.
