Alex Steen had surgery on his left shoulder on Friday.
The surgery went well according to the Blues, but he's still expected to miss four-to-six months. That means he'll miss a good chunk (if not all) of training camp and possibly the first two months of the season. Steen originally suffered the injury back on Feb. 20. He missed the following 15 games, but he returned to the lineup with six games remaining in the regular season. Jun 3 - 10:19 PM

Alexander Steen is projected to play with Paul Stastny and Troy Brouwer in Game 4 on Tuesday night.

The move will place Robby Fabbri on a line with Patrik Berglund and David Backes. Steen has no points and two shots in three games versus the Blackhawks in the postseason, so coach Ken Hitchcock is clearly to change that and get him going offensively.

Alexander Steen (upper body) is expected to be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

"I feel pretty good," he said after Monday's practice. "I think we're going to try it out tomorrow ... as long as everything went well today, and it did, so you're probably going to see me on the ice tomorrow." Steen centered a line between Patrik Berglund and David Backes in the session. He also isn't listed on injured reserve anymore. Feel free to get him back in your lineup if you normally would.

Alexander Steen (upper body) practiced on Thursday, but he isn't ready to return yet.

"I have no timeline," Steen said. "We haven't even discussed a timeline. We're just trying to get it feeling as good as we can. We've been happy with the progress I'm making. We're not ready just yet. Still not great, but we're getting there." He has been sidelined since Feb. 20 with a suspected shoulder injury.
Mar 25 - 10:34 AM

Alexander Steen (upper body) is still having some trouble shooting the puck.

"Obviously with time, it's going to heal on its own," Steen said. "Like I said before, I feel like it's a slow process. It's just not good enough right now. This is going to take the time that it takes. They're long days right now." He has missed the last 11 games with an apparent shoulder injury. He isn't worried about returning before the playoffs.
Mar 17 - 9:35 AM

Per the St. Louis Blues, Alexander Steen has been placed on IR with an upper body injury and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Wow. That's devastating. Steen is second on the team in goals (17) and points (47) while averaging 20:31 of ice time per night. While there's a chance he could return in time for the Blues' last eight-or-so games (if we take the timetable literally), truth is he may be kept out through the end of the regular season. Steen caries a $5.8M cap hit, so while the Blues are relived his his hit while he's on IR, we may get our timetable based on what they do between now and the Feb. 29th trade deadline.

Alexander Steen will center the top line on Tuesday against Nashville.

David Backes will move to right wing on the line and Patrik Berglund will occupy the left side. "We need more 'hunt on the puck,' which is right up David's alley," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "And the only way we can do that is to put a center iceman in there that plays well with him."
Feb 2 - 5:10 PM

After going nine games without a goal to kick of the new year, Alex Steen picked up his second goal of the week in Friday's 2-1 loss to Colorado

It was a pretty play as Troy Brouwer picked off a weak Tyson Barrie clearing attempt, walked in, and gave Steen a no-look feed for the one-timer. Steen now has 15 goals and 42 points on the season.
Jan 23 - 6:15 AM

Updating a previous item, Alexander Steen will play in Saturday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

Early reports indicated that Steen would sit against Montreal, but that doesn't look like it'll be the case anymore. This is obviously good news for the Blues. The 31-year-old has 13 goals and 39 points in 47 games this season.
