Blues forward B.J. Crombeen
will return to the lineup on Tuesday at Detroit after missing 35 games with a fractured scapula.
Crombeen was injured when he took a hard spill into the boards during the third period of the team's final preseason game on Oct. 1 vs. Dallas.
"The shoulder felt pretty good here the last few weeks, but it was just making sure it was strong enough so that I can play my game and not think twice about it," Crombeen told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Tuesday.
