Crombeen has shed the no-contact jersey. #stlblues
The gritty forward continues to take the next step. Crombeen is still looking to make his season debut. In the past he was good for around 10 goals and over 100 PIM so he should have some value when healthy.
"I feel pretty good," he said. "There's still obviously a ways to go, but I think it feels about as good as it can at this point. It's improving every day so that's obviously a good sign. ... Jan. 1st is still the hopeful timeline, but it's tough to put it on a dead-set timeline."
Crombeen has been able to score 7-11 goals while adding over 100 PIM per season which makes him an interesting fantasy hockey option. He won't be healthy until 2012 but could be useful in deeper leagues.
ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Saturday that forward B.J. Crombeen suffered a left shoulder scapula fracture.
Crombeen is out indefinitely from the injury. Last season he scored seven goals and 14 points while adding 154 PIM. Expect a youngster like Ryan Reaves, Evgeni Grachev or Chris Porter to get looks in his absence.
