Cam Barker back on the ice
It appears the wait is finally over for Winnipeg's Cam Barker.

Barker has missed five straight games with an 'upper body injury' but the 23-year-old defenceman been practicing with the Hawks this week.
Barker's got four goals and nine assists in 39 games this season and has 49 minutes in penalties -- including an eye-popping 27 minutes aquired Jan. 2 in St. Louis when Barker went after the Blues' Mike Weaver, who'd labelled Hawks teammate Patrick Sharp.
