TORONTO — Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf is expected to return to the Maple Leafs' lineup Thursday night at home against the Philadelphia Flyers after missing a month because of a hand injury.

Phaneuf took part in another full practice Wednesday.

"I feel that I'm at a point that I'm comfortable and strong enough to come back," Phaneuf said. "It's been a little bit longer process than I originally thought, and with being off for the amount of time that I was, I have that excitement to get back into real game action."

The defenseman was injured in a fight in Ottawa on Jan. 21.
