Report: Penguins D Orpik back Saturday

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik will return to the lineup Saturday against the Atlanta Thrashers, a report said Friday.

Orpik has been out since Nov. 10 because of an unspecified injury.

"I think I'm in as long as all goes well tomorrow," Orpik told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after the Penguins' practice on Friday.

Orpik had been wearing a cast on his right knee.
