Alexander Steen (shoulder) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's preseason match against Washington.

"Basically, I feel like I've been well enough the last little bit to try," said Steen, who is coming back from off-season shoulder surgery. "I didn't want to go out there too early. (But) yesterday, I just made the decision that I wanted to get out of practice and into some games." He is anxious to test himself in full-contact situations and get ready for the start of the regular season. Steen is projected to play with Paul Stastny and Robby Fabbri on Wednesday.

Alexander Steen (shoulder) didn't have a no-contact jersey at Monday's practice.

He was back on the ice Tuesday on a line with Paul Stastny and Robby Fabbri. Steen appears to be on track to be ready for the Blues' season opener.
Oct 4 - 2:04 PM

Alexander Steen has agreed to a four-year, $23 million contract extension with the St. Louis Blues.

Steen still has one season left on his three-year, $17.4 million deal, so the Blues have secured him through 2020-21 with this new contract. With this deal Steen is taking a relatively minor annual pay cut of $50,000. "St. Louis has become home. I've been here eight years," Steen said. "I've gotten to know a lot of people within hockey and outside hockey here. We seem to be spending less and less time in Sweden to make sure we get our time in here as well. It's been an incredible journey and St. Louis is definitely somewhere I see as home now." He had 17 goals, 35 points, and 52 penalty minutes in 67 contests last season. He's currently recovering from a shoulder injury, but is expected to be fine for the season opener.

Alexander Steen (shoulder) should be fine for the season opener.

In fact, Steen was nearly up to speed in time for the World Cup. "I feel great, and it’s a lot earlier than the doctors expected," Steen said. "Made a significant push to make the World Cup and I was extremely close, just ran out of time. I would have had to miss all of the (World Cup) preseason games and then jump right into the tournament. I was unsure of how the shoulder would react, so we made the decision to step away." Steen, who had surgery in June after dislocating his shoulder back in February, thinks the Blues' opener is a realistic target for him, though the big test will be to see how his shoulder responds to contact. With that in mind, he'll be someone to keep in the back of your mind once the Blues' preseason schedule starts.

Alexander Steen (shoulder) has been participating in informal skates.

He didn't appear to be having any issues with stick handling or moving pucks, but the real test will come when he has to take contact. Steen may be limited when training camp opens, but the hope is still that he will be available to play when the regular season begins.
Sep 9 - 4:35 PM

Alex Steen (shoulder) might be ready for the regular season opener, according to Blues GM Doug Armstrong.

Steen had to pull out of the World Cup, but there's some optimism around his status for the start of the year. "We're still quite a ways from camp, but I would think he'll jump right into the flow drills — that's the idea now," Armstrong said. "But we're not going to be penny-wise, pound-foolish. Whether he participates in battle drills in early September or mid-September, I'm not that concerned about. (But) he looks like he's in great shape, he's ahead of schedule and we're hoping that he's ready for Game 1. If not Game 1, very early in the season, but all things are very positive." Whenever he returns to full health, Steen will be an intriguing fantasy option. Head coach Ken Hitchcock has already said that he plans on playing Steen with Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko.
Aug 26 - 11:25 AM

Alexander Steen would prefer to get a new contract signed before the start of the 2016-17 season.

He can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Blues lost David Backes and Troy Brouwer to free agency this off-season, so GM Doug Armstrong may operate with more urgency with regard to Steen.

He missed the following 15 games, but he returned to the lineup with six games remaining in the regular season.
