ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Tuesday the club has activated forward T.J. Oshie
from injured reserve.
Oshie missed 31 games after suffering a fractured left ankle on Nov. 10 in Columbus.
He is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday when the Blues host the Los Angeles Kings at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center.
"(The healing) has been very quick," Oshie said Tuesday. "It seems quick to doctors and maybe the fans, but for me it seems like it's been forever since I played a game.
"I'm ready to get back. I'm excited."
Oshie, 24, has registered 10 points including a goal and nine assists in 13 games this year.
The 5’11, 195-pound forward also owns the Blues’ longest point streak this season, a seven-game stretch from Oct. 11-28 during which he accumulated a goal and eight assists.
Oshie has been skating since late December.
"I feel like I'm healed," he said. "Obviously there's going to be a little of that sense of (hesitancy) when people get close to the leg. But if I do get the chance to play tonight, I'll go out there and do what I can. Nothing will hold me back."
