The lower-body injury that Alexander Steen had been playing through in the 2017 playoffs was a broken foot.
Steen broke his foot in the first game of the Blues' first round series, but played through the injury. He then blocked a shot with his already broken foot in Game 4 of the second round, which complicated the injury and forced him to miss Game 5. Despite that he returned to the lineup for Game 6 on Sunday. It's a prime example of the extent hockey players are willing to go to in order to help out their team. He had three goals and seven points in 10 playoff games. May 7 - 6:44 PM

Alexander Steen (lower body) is good to play in Game 6 on Sunday.

Steen was a game-time decision and his availability was questionable even during the pregame warmups as he skated with his teammates, but wasn't part of the line rushes. Nevertheless it looks like he'll be playing alongside Patrik Berglund and Dmitrij Jaskin.

Alexander Steen (lower body) is a game-time decision for Sunday's contest.

Steen took part in the pregame warmups for Game 5 on Friday before ultimately being kept out of that game. It's believed that he's been working through a foot injury over the course of the 2017 playoffs, but it was aggravated when he blocked a shot in Game 4. As previously reported, if Steen can't play then Dmitrij Jaskin will likely remain in the lineup.

Alexander Steen (lower body) traveled with his teammates to Nashville for Sunday's Game 6.

Steen, who has been dealing with what is believed to be a foot injury for the entire playoffs, blocked a shot in Game 4 that further aggravated his injury. As a result he missed Game 5 Friday and his status for Sunday's contest is still unknown. At least there is a chance Steen will play as he made the trip to Nashville. If Steen can't go, Dmitrij Jaskin will once again likely take his place.
May 7 - 7:32 AM

Alexander Steen (lower body) won't suit up in Game 5 on Friday night.

Steen must be really banged up if he's going to miss a do-or-die game. Another loss would knock the Blues out of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It's unclear if Steen will be able to play if St. Louis forces a Game 6. Dmitrij Jaskin will take his spot in the lineup.
May 5 - 8:00 PM

Alexander Steen is questionable for Game 5 on Friday.

Blues coach Mike Yeo wouldn't commit to Steen's availability for Game 5, which is a change from his statements prior to previous games. Although Steen has consistently played in the playoffs, he hasn't attended a single practice since Game 1 of the first round. On top of that, he briefly left Game 4 on Tuesday after blocking a shot, although he did return.
May 5 - 3:49 PM

Alexander Steen is expected to play Tuesday night despite skipping the morning skate.

He is projected to play between Vladimir Sobotka and Zach Sanford. Steen has apparently been playing through a foot injury, so that explains why he's been missing practices.
May 2 - 5:01 PM

Alexander Steen scored the lone goal for the Blues in a 3-1 loss to Nashville on Sunday afternoon.

He deflected a point shot by Alex Pietrangelo in the second period to cut Nashville's lead to 2-1, but that was as close as St. Louis would get. Vladimir Sobotka had the other assist on Steen's third goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Predators now hold a 2-1 lead in the second-round series.
Apr 30 - 6:08 PM

Alexander Steen has apparently been playing with an injured foot.

Steen seemingly sustained the injury in Game 1 against the Predators and has been wearing a boot between contests. He has also skipped practices. That said, Steen is still suiting up for games and he is expected to play in Game 3 Sunday afternoon. Just another example of how tough hockey players are.
Apr 30 - 8:20 AM

Alexander Steen didn't skate Wednesday morning, but he will play in Game 1 versus Nashville.

Steen had two goals and two assists in five games against Minnesota in Round 1 of the postseason. He had one goal in four meetings with the Predators during the regular season.
Apr 26 - 2:05 PM

Alexander Steen found the back of the net in St. Louis' 4-3 overtime win against Minnesota on Saturday.

Steen had two goals and four points in the Blues' five-game first round series. His contributions were made all the more impressive by the fact that he was dealing with a foot injury that recently caused him to miss some practice time, but hasn't resulted in him missing a postseason contest.
Apr 23 - 10:42 AM

Alexander Steen missed his second straight practice on Wednesday, but he'll still play in Game 4, per Blues coach Mike Yeo.

Steen is dealing with a foot injury. By skipping practices he's getting a bit more time to rest it in between games. He still has a goal and three points in four playoff games this year.
Apr 19 - 4:16 PM

Alexander Steen is expected to play in Game 4 on Wednesday.

He skipped Tuesday's practice, but that has been commonplace for him during the postseason. Steen has three points in three games versus Minnesota in the first round of the playoffs.
Apr 18 - 1:14 PM

Alexander Steen scored a goal and registered an assist in St. Louis' 3-1 win over Minnesota Sunday afternoon.

Jaden Schwartz netted the game-winning goal and has now recorded a point in all of the Blues' first three playoff contests. Defenseman Colton Parayko accounted for St. Louis' other marker. Patrik Berglund assisted on two of St. Louis' three goals.
Apr 16 - 6:24 PM

Alexander Steen didn't take part in Friday's practice, but Blues coach Mike Yeo said he'll still play.

Steen might have just been resting or it could be that he's dealing with an undisclosed injury. That's just speculation though and it's worth remembering that he did get an assist and logged 23:09 minutes of ice time in Game 1.
