OTTAWA - The Senators will get one of the walking wounded back.

Defenceman Chris Phillips will return to play the Winnipeg Jets Thursday night at the Canadian Tire Centre while captain Jason Spezza and winger Chris Neil will still be sidelined.

While Phillips was on the ice for the full skate Tuesday at the Bell Sensplex, there was no sign of Spezza and Neil.

Spezza was on the ice beforehand but didn't show a lot of improvement with the hip ailment he suffered last Friday in a 5-0 loss to Boston.
