Bozak (personal) didn't make the trip to Anaheim for Wednesday's game versus the Ducks, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Bozak's wife is expecting, so he'll miss Wednesday's game at a minimum. The 33-year-old forward could, however, return to the lineup as soon as Friday against San Jose. Another update on his status should surface prior to that contest.
Bozak registered a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Devils. Bozak saw a shot attempt in the first period turn into a juicy rebound that Vince Dunn put away to tie the game at one. The 33-year-old Bozak has a goal and a helper in five games since he returned from a lower-body injury. He's at 29 points (four on the power play), 107 shots and a minus-1 rating in 65 appearances overall.
Bozak (lower body) was minus-1 and failed to register a shot on goal in Tuesday's 6-5 win over Chicago. It was the first game back for Bozak after missing the previous two with his injury. He received 12:31 of ice time and was unable to find the scoresheet. Bozak has just one goal and two assists over his last 15 games. The 33-year-old is a fine role player for the Blues but has made a limited fantasy contribution with 27 points in 61 games.
Bozak (lower body) will play versus Chicago on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports, Bozak returns to the lineup following a two-game stint on the shelf due to his lower-body issue. In his previous four games prior to getting hurt, the center notched two points, eight shots and a pair of hits while averaging 13:59 of ice time. With the 33-year-old good to go, he should not only retake his spot on the third line but also link up with the No. 2 power-play unit.
Bozak (lower body) won't play in Sunday's game against the Wild and is considered day-to-day, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Bozak is still managing the injury that he sustained in Thursday's game against the Coyotes. In his stead, Oskar Sundqvist will continue to center the third line with MacKenzie MacEachern drawing into the lineup. Expect another word on Bozak's health ahead of Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks.
