Jay Bouwmeester suffered a lower-body injury during today's game and has been ruled out of a return.

Friday's contest will be Jay Bouwmeester's 1,100th NHL game.

Bouwmeester is set to become the 186th player to reach that milestone and the eighth among active players. "It's kinda neat. It's another sign you're getting a little older," Bouwmeester said in reference to the milestone. "It's kind of like birthdays (where) after a certain point you don't want to know what number it is." Speaking of birthdays, Bouwmeester is 34-years-old so while he is getting up there in years, it would be shocking to see him stay in the league for another five or more seasons.

Jay Bouwmeester scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville.

Bouwmeester's second goal of the season gave the Blues a 1-0 lead late in the first period and they were up 3-0 after two, but the Predators rallied in the third. Bouwmeester was also credited with four blocks in the contest. Points have been rare for him this year, as he has a total of six through 28 appearances.

Jay Bouwmeester is a scratch against Toronto on Tuesday night.

Jay Bouwmeester (lower body) took part in Thursday's practice.

Bouwmeester will also join the Blues on their trip to Dallas ahead of Friday's game versus the Stars. It remains to be seen if he'll be available for that contest.

"I haven't had a chance to talk to him yet, but I thought him being out there for a full practice -- he's such a strong skater -- I thought he looked really good."

Jay Bouwmeester may miss at least two more games because of a nagging undisclosed injury.

"We thought he was going to go and he went out there and it wasn't feeling right," coach Mike Yeo said after the game. "I think we'll keep him out through the weekend here and re-evaluate next week." Bouwmeester nearly returned to action on Thursday night, but the issue that kept him out on Tuesday put him back on the sidelines. Consider him day-to-day for now.
