HockeyStL-- Paul Stastny has been activated from the IR and may return to the Blues lineup for Thursday's game against the New Jersey Devils, according to Blues beatwriter Jeremy Rutherford.
Stastny's activation comes in the midst of the Blues' five game win-streak and at the beginning of a five game homestand for St. Louis.
Stastny was injured during the Blues 6-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes and has missed the Blues' last eight games.
The Blues have played well without their prized free agent signing, going 6-2 during the span against some of the best teams in Western Conference.
With Stastny's return, the Blues have placed T.J. Oshie on IR due to a concussion he suffered in the Blues 4-3 overtime victory against the Dallas Stars.
The Blues look to stay in first place in the Western Conference Thursday night, as they take on the New Jersey Devils at 7:00 p.m. CT.
