  • Bouwmeester (ankle) will continue to practice with his teammates during an upcoming three-game road trip, though he won't play during that span, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Bouwmeester has been a non-contact participant in practice for the past week and his next opportunity to see game action will be Nov. 21 following the announcement. The Blues will be hoping he'll be able to begin taking contact over the next week, which is likely a necessary requirement before he makes his season debut.

  • Bouwmeester has been skating, but pain related to the broken ankle he suffered is preventing him from making a return to the lineup, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports. The veteran blueliner sustained the injury during September's training camp and therefore has yet to make his 2017-18 debut. Bouwmeester appeared to be nearing a return in early October, but the problem has lingered longer than anticipated. At this point, it seems that the responsible thing to do in this situation is to consider Bouwmeester out indefinitely until he turns a corner in the rehabilitation process.

  • Blues' Jay Bouwmeester: Making progress with injury

    Bouwmeester (ankle) is moving closer to game action, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The rugged veteran fractured his ankle when a puck deflected off his foot during a Sept. 17 team scrimmage. St. Louis has won its first two games of the new season, having prevailed over the Penguins and Stars, respectively, but Bouwmeester should eventually bolster the back line even more as a savvy shot blocker who helped the Notes to the league's third-best penalty kill (85.3 percent) last season.

  • Blues' Jay Bouwmeester: Sustains ankle fracture

    Bouwmeester is dealing with an ankle fracture and will be reevaluated in three weeks. The injury puts Bouwmeester on track to miss at least the first three games of the season, and it very well could be more if the fracture has not healed enough prior to his mid-October evaluation. With Bouwmeester sidelined, Joel Edmundson could see time on the first defensive pairing next to Alex Pietrangelo, while young players like Vince Dunn or Jake Walman now have a greater opportunity to make the Opening Night roster.

  • Blues' Jay Bouwmeester: Suffers lower-body injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bouwmeester will be evaluated Tuesday for a lower-body injury, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. The fact that Bouwmeester needs to see a physician outside of the team's medical staff is certainly not a good sign. The veteran missed just one outing last season -- racking up 15 points in his 81 appearances. While his offensive upside is limited, the blueliner eats up big minutes (22:24 per game) including time on the penalty kill (2:59). An extended absence may not impact too many fantasy owners, but would be a significant blow to the start of the Blues' 2017-18 campaign.
