ST. LOUIS - The Blues will get Kyle Brodziak back in the lineup ahead of schedule.
The 32-year-old forward was activated from injured reserve on Friday, just three weeks after sustaining a right-foot injury on Jan. 24 at Pittsburgh. He was originally placed on injured reserve on Jan. 26 and was expected to miss five weeks.
"It's obviously been frustrating being out and not being able to contribute," Brodziak said after skating at the team's practice facility on Friday. "But (rehabbing) the injury went well and I just had to take some time to let the bone heal. It feels good now."
A lot has changed in the 10 games since Brodziak went down with an injury. At the time, the team had lost three of four games. Now, they've reeled off a season-high six consecutive wins.
"Guys have been working really hard and starting to see some results, which is a good thing. Hopefully I can come in and do my part, and hopefully we can keep this thing rolling.

"For me, I've got to focus on getting back to my game as quick as I can and getting up to speed as soon as I can," Brodziak added. "Whatever situation I'm put in, I have to make the best of it and just take it one shift at a time."
To make room to activate Brodziak, the Blues have assigned forward Wade Megan to the Chicago Wolves.
