The St. Louis Blues are expecting to have Oskar Sundqvist back in the lineup Friday when they meet the Vegas Golden Knights at Enterprise Center (7 p.m. FSMW, 101 ESPN).
Sundqvist has missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury but was practicing with the team again on Thursday at Centene Community Ice Center.
"I think he's good to go," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said Friday. "He's a very versatile player. We use him in a lot of situations, different lines, plays center, wing, he's been on the power play this year, kills penalties on a nightly basis for us. A good checker, but he can also bring some offense - a very important player for our hockey team."
Berube held an optional practice at Enterprise Center on Friday, but below is a projected lineup based on Thursday's team practice. If any lineup changes are available at warm-ups, those will be updated here.
Kyrou - O'Reilly - Tarasenko
Hoffman - Schenn - Perron
Sanford - Sundqvist - Blais
Clifford - Joshua - MacEachern
Krug - Faulk
Dunn - Scandella
Mikkola - Bortuzzo
