Buchnevich (illness) returned to the ice for Thursday's practice session, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Buchnevich was lighting it up for missing Wednesday's matchup with Edmonton, as he racked up 11 points, including a trio of power-play assists, in his last seven contests. The winger will almost certainly jump back into a top-six role heading into Saturday's Winter Classic versus Minnesota.
