ST. LOUIS, Mo. (HockeySTL) -

The captain returns.

The Blues announced Sunday that Alex Pietrangelo has been activated from IR and is expected to play Sunday night when the team travels to Winnipeg. Pietrangelo sustained a lower-body injury December 9th against Detroit and missed four games.

St. Louis had an up-and-down week without him, going 2-2 but struggling to find consistent scoring, particularly on the power play, where they went 0 for 8 on the week until a 2 for 5 showing in Saturday night’s home win over the Jets.

Pietrangelo is tied for third in goals and ranks eighth in points among NHL defensemen this season.
