Ilkka Heikkinen will be returned to Hartford if no D is injured tonight....

"We definitely need to work with his feet," Tortorella said of Heikkinen. "But he'll hit people. I like his jam."

Rookie defenseman Ilkka Heikkinen, who subbed for Redden against Buffalo and Detroit, was scratched and “if we stay healthy he’ll probably go down to Hartford,” said Tortorella. Heikkinen, signed as a free agent last summer, needs work on positioning. “I like his jam, and it’s something that we need. He did fine. (But) I don’t think there’s anyone head and shoulders above, down there, that needs to be up here all the time in case of these injuries.” Getting a taste of the NHL’s faster pace, which he said was similar to the Finland National Team, will help him in the AHL, Heikkinen said. “I’ll react differently and that should be good.”

How do you make those quotes and then not send him down? This is the reason why I think there is a deal coming.

It's more likely that Redden is not 100% and they were waiting to see how he was during and after the game. Doesn't make sense to send him down before they're sure Redden can play on Saturday.
