ST. LOUIS - Oskar Sundqvist will return to the lineup Thursday when the Blues host the Vegas Golden Knights at Enterprise Center (7 p.m. FSMW, 101 ESPN).
Sundqvist, who sustained a lower-body injury on Nov. 27 in Tampa Bay after a collision near the boards with Lightning defenseman Luke Schenn, will return after missing six games.
"He's a good player, obviously, a 200-foot player for us," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said in his pregame press conference. "He was scoring before he got hurt, he does a lot of good stuff for us, penalty kill - he just makes whatever line he goes on better, that's what he does."
"… It's all hard work and being aggressive," Berube added. "That's his game, he wills his way there and wills his way into scoring goals."
Through 26 games this season, Sundqvist has posted eight goals and four assists (12 points).
