Ott said he will play in Thursday evening's home contest against the Sabres, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Ott had not appeared in the Blues' previous six games after sustaining an upper-body injury Nov. 4 in Chicago. Prior to the injury the 33-year-old veteran had totaled two points through 13 contests for St. Louis.
Ott (upper body) is still without a timetable for his return from injury. Ott has missed the Blues' last three games with an upper-body injury he suffered on Nov. 4 in a matchup with the Blackhawks. It appears as though Ott will miss at least a few more contests with the ailment, as head coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters Thursday that the 33-year-old bruiser is still without a timetable for his return to game action. He's been skating of late, but will likely need to log several full practices before drawing back into the Blues' lineup.
Ott will not go on the team's upcoming road trip, effectively ruling him out, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Ott will miss at least the next two contests as a result of the issue, making his next possible return date Saturday against the Blackhawks. The veteran has just two points through 13 games this season, making it less difficult to replace Ott's production given the plethora of options available to the Blues. Still, Ott will likely draw back into the lineup for the Blues when he does return to full health.

According to this report, Ott is expected to be out of the lineup Saturday against the Predators.
