ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Sunday the club has activated forward Alex Steen from injured reserve.

Steen, 28, has missed the last 39 games due to a concussion, last appearing on Dec. 27, 2011 at Detroit.

This season, the 6’1”, 206-pound forward has played in 36 games, recording 24 points (13 goals, 11 assists), 22 penalty minutes and a +20 rating.

Steen, a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, was acquired by the Blues from Toronto along with Carlo Colaiacovo in exchange for Lee Stempniak on Nov. 24, 2008 and he was originally drafted by Toronto in the first round, 24th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
