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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
