Blues’ Jay Bouwmeester Expected To Return Against Oilers

The St. Louis Blues are expected to have defenseman Jay Bouwmeester back on the ice as they play the Edmonton Oilers at Scottrade Center on Tuesday .

Bouwmeester has missed 21 games of the season with a fractured left ankle.

Bouwmeester was injured back on September 17th when he was blocking a shot during a training camp scrimmage.

“It was good to get on that road trip and skate and practice and get that stuff going,” Bouwmeester said (h/t NHL.com).

“It’s been a long time, especially at the start of the year when you miss training camp and stuff. I’m excited, and hopefully just jump in and not interfere with what’s going on here.”

“Obviously, if he’s able to go tomorrow, we’ll see how he is in the morning, but right now, it’s looking that way,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said.

“He can do a lot for us. A veteran guy, skating ability, defensive game. I don’t expect him to step in and his game to be exactly where it’s going to be 5-10 games from now.

“I would expect later on [Monday] we’ll take him off the [injured reserve], but it’s looking pretty good.”
