Coach Lindy Ruff says Vanek is likely to play at Ottawa on Tuesday. Vanek's 17 goals are tied for sixth in the NHL. He was hurt during an 8-3 loss at Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Forwards Derek Whitmore and Marcus Foligno were promoted from AHL Rochester to bolster a banged-up lineup that had only 10 forwards skate in practice.
