ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Sunday the club has activated forward Jamie Langenbrunner from injured reserve.
Langenbrunner has missed the past 10 games after suffering a broken bone in his left foot on Feb. 19 in Chicago. He was originally expected to be re-evaluated four weeks from the injury, but Langenbrunner has been skating with the team in recent days and will return ahead of schedule.
Langenbrunner, 36, has posted 21 points including four goals and 17 assists in 57 games with the Blues this season. The 6’1, 202-pound forward is just eight games shy of becoming the 21st American-born player in NHL history to reach 1,100 games played.
The Cloquet, Minnesota native was originally signed by the Blues as a free agent on July 6, 2011.
