The St. Louis Blues activated forward T.J. Oshie from injured reserve after he missed 31 games because of a fractured left ankle.
Oshie was leading the team with 10 points, nine of them assists, through 13 games when he was injured Nov. 10.
Oshie returned well ahead of the original estimate that he'd miss at least three months, and in time for Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings
The Blues were 9-1-2 before the first round pick in 2005 was hurt. St. Louis remains without forwards David Perron and Andy McDonald, both out with concussions.
Oshie's seven-game point streak from Oct. 11 to Oct. 28, in which he had a goal and eight assists, is the franchise's longest this season.
