Despite being injured just two days ago, Steen will be in the lineup this afternoon. He has registered two goals and two assists in his last three games and has 26 goals and 16 assists with a plus-17 rating in 39 games this season.
Steen was injured on Thursday and likely won't play tonight, but is not expected to miss a lengthy period of time. He missed 11 games with a concussion earlier in the month, but didn't appear to miss a beat registering two goals and two assists in his first four games back. Consider Steen day-to-day and monitor his status prior to tonight's game, but it looks as if Derek Roy will be in and Steen will be out.
Steen went down in the corner and was slow to stand up. He appeared to jam his right foot into the crease of the boards, and getting up slowly, he rested on the bench briefly. Steen attempted to skate it off, putting limited pressure on his right leg. He stayed in the game briefly, but with 2:57 left in the second period, he headed for the locker room and didn’t return. “He’s day-to-day” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. “We’ll see where he is in a day or so. He’ll be back.” Monitor Steen's status during Saturday's morning skate.
Steen (concussion) will be back in the Blues lineup on Saturday.
Steen has missed the last 11 games with a concussion that he suffered on December 21. Despite all the time that he missed, he is still tied for 5th in the NHL with 24 goals. Steen has had a tremendous season and should be activated in all formats for Saturday.
Steen has been placed on IR and is out indefinitely with a concussion.
Steen will miss his second straight game tonight and will likely miss a couple of weeks after suffering what was revealed today as a concussion. This is a terrible break for the Blues and Steen who is having a career year after scoring 24 goals with 15 assists (39 points) in 35 games. Expect Jaden Schwartz to continue to see time on the Blues top line while Steen is sidelined.
Steen (upper-body) is not expected to play tonight.
Steen was injured on Saturday and did not return to the game. He was not on the ice for the Blues morning skate and Jaden Schwartz was skating in his spot on the top-line. Dmitrij Jaskin has been recalled and is expected to see top-6 minutes with Steen out.

Steen, 29, is having a career year, posting 36 points (22 goals) through 33 games this season. He tallied 20 goals in his first 24 games, becoming the fastest player in franchise history to reach that plateau since Brett Hull in 1990-91. Overall Steen ranks high in most major offensive categories, including ninth in points, second in goals, 15th in power-play goals (5), fourth in game-winning goals (5), 17th in shots (112) and sixth in shooting percentage (19.6%).
Steen is not feeling well and is a game-time decision tonight.
Steen's illness explains the reason why he was not at the morning skate and should be considered as positive news because he is not dealing with any injuries. If he is unable to go, Jaden Schwartz will slide onto the top-line.
Steen was not on the ice this morning for the Blues morning skate.
Missing the morning skate would suggest that Steen will not play tonight against the Ducks, but he has not officially been ruled out. If he does not play Jaden Schwartz will slide into his spot on the top-line with TJ Oshie and David Backes. Steen continues to play well as he sits second in the NHL with 20 goals, although he has not scored in his last three games.
Steen hasn't played since February 23rd because of a shoulder injury. Steen had a good start to the season going scoring four goals and 12 assists in 18 games before getting hurt. He will likely play on a line with David Backes and Chris Stewart.

The hope was that Steen (shoulder) would be able to return right away but that is not the case. He will join Andy McDonald on IR after the two of them collided in practice. There is no timetable for Steen's return, but it doesn't appear as if he will be out long-term.
