Blues activate Steen from IR; forward missed 11 games with concussion

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have activated forward Alexander Steen from injured reserve and say the team's leading goal scorer will be available for Saturday's home game against league-leading Anaheim.

Steen has missed 11 games with a concussion, which slowed down a career season for the forward.

He has already tied a career high with 24 goals, and his 39 points in 35 games are second on the Blues behind T.J. Oshie (40).

In nine NHL seasons Steen has totalled 147 goals, 194 assists and 248 penalty minutes in 572 career games with St. Louis and Toronto.

The Winnipeg-born Swedish international was recently named to Sweden's 2014 Olympic team.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
