WINNIPEG - Blues Head Coach Craig Berube called Alexander Steen a game-time decision for Friday's matchup against the Winnipeg Jets (7 p.m., FSMW, KMOX).
Steen has missed two games with concussion-like symptoms after being hit with an elbow from Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson in last Friday's 3-2 overtime win at Pepsi Center. Johnson received a five-minute major for elbowing and a game misconduct.
"I'm feeling much better," Steen said Friday. "When you're out, you have that itch the whole time to get back."
Steen skated on a line with Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko on Friday morning, so if he plays, that's likely where he will fit into the lineup.
Here is a projected lineup for if Steen plays:
Sanford - O'Reilly - Perron
Steen - Schenn - Tarasenko
Maroon - Bozak - Thomas
Nolan - Barbashev - Sundqvist
Edmundson - Parayko
Dunn - Butler
Bouwmeester - Bortuzzo
