DALLAS - Paul Stastny joined the team at the morning skate Tuesday at American Airlines Center in Dallas, where the Blues will meet the Stars tonight at 7:30 p.m.
Although his return is not imminent, it's encouraging to see Stastny back on the ice. In another positive step, he took a few face-offs Tuesday morning.
The Blues forward has been out of the lineup since sustaining an upper-body injury on his first shift in the Oct. 18 game against Arizona.
Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said Monday he hopes Stastny will be a full practice participant by the end of this week.
