Josh Anderson hasn't played since the Blue Jackets' disastrous 7-2 loss in Pittsburgh on opening weekend. 

He's missed the past six games due to an upper body injury, which FOX Sports Ohio later disclosed to be a shoulder injury. The Blue Jackets (3-3-2) have fared respectably in his absence, but having their big power forward back in the mix is a boost to a lineup that really (really!) needs to start scoring goals and finishing its chances.

The Blue Jackets formally activated Anderson off injured reserve on Monday morning, and he'll dress tonight against the Maple Leafs (7 p.m. at Scotiabank Arena).

With Anderson returning, Jakob Lilja comes out of the lineup and there are no expected changes on defense. Joonas Korpisalo will start in goal.
