It looks like the Chicago Blackhawks will get some forward depth back in the mix soon. Tyler Johnson, who has been sidelined since Oct. 25 with a left ankle sprain, was a full participant in the team's Monday morning skate.

After Johnson suffered the injury, the Blackhawks listed his return timeline at 4-6 weeks. He resumed skating last week, taking the ice prior to Blackhawks' practices ahead of a West Coast road trip. Now, Johnson is back at practice three weeks into his timeline.

The veteran forward got off to a nice start prior to going down with the injury. In six games, he scored six points (two goals, four assists) as a fixture of the Hawks' second line.
