The St. Louis Blues activated forward B.J. Crombeen from injured reserve on Tuesday, paving the way for his first action this season.
Crombeen totaled seven goals and 14 points with 154 penalty minutes in 80 games a season ago for St. Louis, but has missed all 35 contests after fracturing his left shoulder in the Blues' final preseason game.
To make room on the roster, the Blues placed forward Ryan Reaves on IR with a right hip injury.
The 24-year-old did not record a point in 24 appearances this year.
