    Blues' Robert Bortuzzo: Takes Pietrangelo's roster spot

    Bortuzzo will be in the active lineup Tuesday, replacing the injured Alex Pietrangelo (knee), when the Blues face the Jets, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Pietrangelo will miss at least three weeks, so Bortuzzo, who's played in just 24 of 55 games, will be a regular on the blue line. It's important to note that Bortuzzo isn't being asked to replace Pietrangelo on the top pairing; he'll skate on the third defensive pairing while Kevin Shattenkirk takes Pietrangelo's spot along side Jay Bouwmeester.

    Blues' Robert Bortuzzo: Health restored

Bortuzzo, Colton Parayko (illness) and Carl Gunnarsson (upper body) reportedly have all overcome their respective health issues ahead of Friday's road matchup with the Avalanche. As a result, the blue line gets a major boost, though Bortuzzo is more of a physical type who doesn't move the puck nearly as well as the aforementioned defensemen.
