Oshie Could Return in Late January
Blues forward T.J. Oshie could return to the lineup as early as late January, according to Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong.

Armstrong made the announcement to members of the media on Tuesday after the team's gameday skate.

"Oshie is doing very well. He's been out skating the last week or so I'd say he's progressing very well," Armstrong said. "With his work ethic and his healing and the way he's been, we're comfortable that (a return) somewhere around the All-Star break is a realistic goal for us."

Oshie was injured in the Nov. 10 game vs. Columbus and was originally projected to be out of the lineup until at least mid-February with a broken ankle.

"When I heard three or four months, I didn't really believe it," Oshie told FOXSportsMidwest.com. "It kind of hit me a couple weeks after but as I progressed and as I felt better, I realized that maybe this could be a little earlier. I was aiming for late February. Then I was aiming for mid-February. Now things just keep getting better."

Armstrong said an early return is possible thanks to Oshie's positive attitude off the ice.

"He's really taking care of himself and he's worked hard off the ice," Armstrong said. "He's a quick healer and that's good to know moving forward. I think a lot of it has to do with his attitude. His attitude is unbelievable. He's here every day, he's working hard, he's got a smile on his face. "

Oshie has one goal and nine assists (10 points) in 13 games played this season. He was leading the team in points at the time of his injury.

Perron, McDonald Still Out


Armstrong said there are no new updates on the status of Perron and McDonald.

Both players still have concussion symptoms and won't return to the lineup until those symptoms have cleared.

"When we get some of these guys back that aren't in our lineup right now (Oshie, David Perron and Andy McDonald), that's like the biggest trade you can make at the trade deadline if we're able to get [them] back at some point," Armstrong said.
