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.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
