  • Bouwmeester (undisclosed) will not join the team for its four-game road trip, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Coach Mike Yeo left open the possibility that Bouwmeester could meet up with the squad during the back half of the trip, but the veteran defenseman will remain on injured reserve for the time being. The blueliner has been limited to just 10 outings this season due to various maladies and had notched a mere two points in those contests.

  • Bouwmeester (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday. Bouwmesster's status has done a full 180-degree turn, after he was originally announced as being available Thursday versus the Ducks and will now miss the weekend matchups with Winnipeg. The team has not provided any details regarding the nature of the blueliner's issue, so it's unclear whether it is related to the ankle injury that caused him to miss the first 21 games of the 2017-18 campaign. In the meantime, Samuel Blais was called up from the minors to fill out the 23-man roster.

  • Bouwmeester (undisclosed) has been ruled out of the Blues' next two games, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports. Bouwmeester was fully expected to be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Ducks, but he unexpectedly ended up being a late scratch for that contest after participating in pregame warmups. The veteran blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Flames. Jordan Schmaltz will continue to occupy Bouwmeester's spot in the lineup until he's given the green light to return.

  • Bouwmeester (undisclosed) will suit up against the Ducks on Thursday. Bouwmeester will slot back into the lineup following a brief one-game absence due to his undisclosed malady. The 34-year-old has logged a mere 10 games this season due to injuries, during which he has notched a disappointing two points. Once a 40-point producer for the Flames, the veteran has failed to crack the 20-point mark since the 2013-14 campaign.

  • Bouwmeester is bothered by an unspecified injury and will not suit up for Tuesday night's home game against the Lightning, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports. It's not abundantly clear what will cause the rugged defenseman to miss this next contest, but Rutherford adds that the ailment is not related to a fractured ankle that Bouwmeester sustained in training camp. Look for Jordan Schmaltz to replace him on the third defensive pair against the Bolts.
