Blues activate T.J. Oshie off injured list following recovery from upper body injury

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues activated forward T.J. Oshie from the injured list in time for him to play Saturday night at Edmonton.

The Blues cleared roster space on Friday, trading forward Matt D'Agostini to New Jersey for a conditional draft pick. They are carrying three goalies, including benched Brian Elliott.

The 26-year-old Oshie, who was out with an upper body injury, has five goals and 12 assists in 26 games. He was hurt checking the Sharks' Brent Burns on March 12.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
