Jay Bouwmeester will make his St. Louis debut Thursday night when the Blues take on Chicago.
He will be skate alongside Alex Pietrangelo on the team's top pairing. "I know what kind of player he is," Bouwmeester said of Pietrangelo. "He's a talented, big guy who can move the puck and skate. I'm really excited. He's right-handed. I haven't played the left side in a while. That's where I prefer to be. I just want to fit in and help out."
