Oshie to Return to Blues Lineup
Blues forward T.J. Oshie returned to practice on Thursday and will be in the lineup Friday when the Blues host the Calgary Flames at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center.

Oshie missed two games for team disciplinary reasons.

As a result, Oshie will divide his pay from the missed games and donate it to the St. Louis Blues 14 Fund and the Dream Factory.

"I got paid for the last two days I missed and that's not right," Oshie told reporters after Thursday's practice. "I'm going to do everything I can to earn the trust back of the fans, who I love here in St. Louis. (My teammates) are the ones I go to battle with every night. I definitely never want to let them down again."

The Blues 14 Fund was established in 1998 and helps raise money for cancer care and awareness, health and wellness, education and youth hockey development. The Dream Factory is a non-profit volunteer organization that grants dreams to children with critical illnesses.
