Updating an earlier item, Paul Stastny will center Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko on Monday night in his return to the lineup.

"It's going to be a little bit of time before he's up to speed but I think that line was an awful good line before Paul went down and we'll see how quickly we can get up to speed," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I think he's really going to help us on special teams." Get Stastny back in your lineup.

Paul Stastny (foot) will get back into the lineup Monday night.

It's unclear where he will play at this time, but he was skating between Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen before getting injured. Stastny hasn't played since Oct. 16 and he has posted five points in five games.

Paul Stastny was on the ice with his teammates Thursday for the first time since he broke his right foot on Oct. 16.

"It feels really good, but with this injury, it's got to heal all the way," Stastny said. "Now it's just more about practicing with the guys, moving the puck around, talk to the doctors, get an X-ray every couple of days and see where it's at." An exact timetable for his return is unclear, but once he gets clearance he can step back into the lineup immediately.

Paul Stastny has been placed on injured reserve due to a broken foot.

He will be re-evaluated in five weeks. Stastny was injured during the second period of the Blues' 4-3 win in Vancouver on Oct. 16. With him out of action, Jori Lehtera will probably continue to see time on the top line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen.

Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock said the team will provide an update on Paul Stastny (lower-body) after they return from their current road trip.

"We’ll see what they say when we get back," Hitchcock said. "I don’t know what the deal is right now. But he’s obviously not going to play the next two games and they’ll have news for us when we get back." The road trip ends in Montreal on Tuesday.

Paul Stastny (lower-body) won't play in Sunday's game against Winnipeg.

He suffered the injury in Friday's game against the Vancouver Canucks after blocking a shot. The Blues announced that Stastny has returned to St. Louis. He will miss the final two games of their road trip on Sunday in Winnipeg and Tuesday in Montreal.

It is not clear if Paul Stastny injured himself to any great degree Friday night against Edmonton.

He left the game after being hit by a slap shot off the stick of the Oilers' Matt Bartkowski with 4:10 left in the second period and did not play in the third stanza. For now consider Stastny day-to-day and check back with us tomorrow when the Blues indicated there will be an update as to his condition.

Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Stastny's goal came with the man advantage, and now has four points on the season. He also included three shots, two hits, and a block while playing 20:12 with over five minutes spent on special teams.
Oct 16 - 12:36 AM

It looks as if the Blues will be going with a first line featuring Paul Stastny between Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko.

At least if things progress based on what the St. Louis coaching staff has seen so far. A very potent second line would feature David Backes and Jaden Schwartz with either Robby Fabrri or a healthy Jori Lehtera. Watch this situation going forward.

Paul Stastny notched two goals and added an assist in Thursday's 6-0 preseason win against Dallas.

He is tied with Vladimir Tarasenko for the Blues' preseason goal lead at three apiece. The duo is projected to start the regular season on the same line, which will help Stastny bounce back after a difficult opening year with St. Louis.
Sep 25 - 11:36 AM

Paul Stastny feels he may have came back too soon from his early-season shoulder injury in 2014-15.

"First year on a new team, new contract, you feel like you're useless when you're not playing," he said. "As you get older, you realize maybe you should have taken a couple extra days and not worried about the outside pressure." Stastny feels much more sure of himself going into his second campaign with the Blues. He is slated to center Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko, which will greatly increase his chances of having a bounce back year.
Sep 16 - 10:19 AM

Paul Stastny felt more comfortable as a leader with the Blues as the season progressed.

"By the end of the year I started speaking up. The first year with a new team, you kind of fly under the radar and be quiet. But as you get older you have to speak up," he said. "You want to win. If you see something go wrong, you're not going to sit there and not say anything. (Leadership), it's another attribute and ability that you're good at, and feel like you're not being used for it and kind of hindering yourself and not being involved as much as you should be. But at same time when you come to a new team, especially a team that's good and has been built from the bottom, they already have their leaders." He is expected to take on a larger role in his second season with St. Louis.

St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong wants to see more from Paul Stastny going forward.

"Paul Stastny needs to be a bigger part of our group," Armstrong told Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. "He’s our highest-paid player, we need him to be a bigger and better part of our team." Stastny had just 16 goals and 46 points in 74 games and he had just one goal in six postseason games in 2014-15.
May 31 - 1:53 PM

Paul Stastny scored the game-winner in the third period to help St. Louis down Chicago 2-1 on Thursday night and clinch the Central Division title.

It was Stastny's 46th point in 73 games this season and his first in a week. The 29-year-old notched 10 points in seven playoff games last season, and will be a solid playoff pool option if you believe in the Blues.
