Stastny (foot) will return to the lineup Monday against the Sabres, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Stastny has been sidelined since Oct. 17 with the foot issue, but will finally make his return to the ice Monday. The center tallied five points in five games before going down with the injury, and should return to centering the top line alongside Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko. He'll return to a nice matchup Monday, with Buffalo allowing 2.70 goals per game this season.
Stastny (foot) participated in the Thursday morning skate and is moving closer toward rejoining the lineup, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Stastny is trying to work his way back from a broken right foot that has already caused him to miss 14 games this season. According to the report, he has skated the past 5-to-6 days and most recently has been trying to obtain medical clearance for a return to game action. While there isn't a definite timetable for Stastny's return, it seems as though he's making good progress.
Stastny (foot) was spotted at the Blues' practice facility Friday. He has shed his boot and is walking without restrictions, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. On Oct. 21, it was announced that Stastny would miss at least five weeks with the injury. He is more than halfway into that return timetable and it appears that he is progressing well, despite the fact that he has yet to return to the ice for practice quite yet.
Stastny has a broken right foot and will be re-evaluated in five weeks. Stastny sustained the injury Oct. 16 against Vancouver. It's a tough blow for a Blues team involved in a highly competitive Central Division. As someone who has posted 106 points in the past seasons combined, the team cannot be expected to replace that kind of offensive production outright, but centers like David Backes and Scott Gomez could be depended on more heavily without Stastny.
Stastny is dealing with a lower-body injury and will miss the final two games of a road trip that ends next Tuesday in Montreal. Stastny reportedly sustained the injury in the second period of Friday's win over Vancouver. The team is expected to shed more light on the situation at the conclusion of the road trip. Hopefully the malady proves to be minor, as Stastny is riding a four-game point streak to complement a plus-4 rating through five games.
