ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Blues forward Andy McDonald has been activated from the injured list after missing 24 games with a concussion.
The Blues announced the move Wednesday and McDonald is expected to play Friday at home against the Edmonton Oilers. The 33-year-old has eight goals and nine assists in 25 games.
He was injured Dec. 4 in Edmonton. The Blues still are without forward David Perron, who sustained a concussion in early November.
The Blues assigned rookie forward Philip McRae to Peoria of the AHL.
