Havlat to make return in Game 3

San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Sharks forward Martin Havlat will make his long-awaited return to action in Game 3 of a Western semifinal against the Los Angeles Kings.

San Jose head coach Todd MacLellan revealed the news on Saturday, saying: "He's come to see me and he thinks he's ready to go, so we'll find a spot for him."

Havlat hasn't played since the opening game of the first round against the Vancouver Canucks with an undisclosed lower-body injury.

The Sharks return home after dropping the first two games in the series in Los Angeles.
