The 67's will have one of their top scorers back for tonight's game against the Belleville Bulls at the Civic Centre.

Winger Chris Hulit missed Wednesday's victory over Kingston due to bruised ribs, but he's recovered enough to play tonight. He was injured when he crashed into the boards during a Boxing Day practice.

"It hurt quite a bit, but I'm okay now," Hulit said yesterday.

"A bunch of the guys were gathered around me after I hit the boards and they seemed pretty concerned."

Hulit sat out the Kingston game to ensure he'd be ready for tonight's contest.

"It felt a lot better (yesterday)," he said after skating with the team in the morning.

The 67's (16-16-3-1) broke a four-game losing skid with a 6-3 win over the Frontenacs.

Danny Battochio starts in net for the 67's tonight against the Bulls, who beat Ottawa 3-1 in the last meeting between the clubs on Dec. 16.
