That's right Hawks fans number 37 Adam Burish returns tonight against the LA Kings.

Burish who has yet to play this season after undergoing surgery on his torn ACL on September 26 after tearing it in the preseason against the Wild.

Burish isn't a numbers guy but he is exactly what the Hawks have been missing. He brings energy, he is the class clown which is easy to see if you watched any of Blackhawks TV. If it isn't him teaming up with Patrick Sharp to hide captain Jonathan Toews bag, he is competing in the Hawks version of the winter games speed skating alongside Patrick Kane.

Burish will provide some good backup to Ben Eager who has been filling the role of enforcer all on his own. Adam is also a big game player while only totaling 9 points last season (6 goals and 3 assists), he got 5 points in the playoffs scoring 3 goals and getting 2 assists.

Burish will be returning to his familiar role on the 4th line being paired with Eager and probably a rotation of centers which will be starting with Kopecky tonight.

I will feel sorry for whoever Burish gets a first clean hit at and wouldn't be at all surprised to see him drop the gloves tonight if he finds a willing partner.
