Bouwmeester (illness) took part in Wednesday's optional skate, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

It was believed that Bouwmeester would return to action Tuesday against the Jets after the worst of his flu symptoms seemed to have subsided, but coach Ken Hitchcock decided to keep the blueliner out for a second straight game.

Bouwmeester will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Jets, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.

Coach Ken Hitchcock indicated after Tuesday's morning skate that Bouwmeester was "available" to play after missing the team's previous game with an illness, but never specified that the blueliner would in fact be in the lineup. It appears that the Blues decided it was best to let Bouwmeester rest up another game, allowing Chris Butler to remain in the lineup in his stead. It's been a miserable season for Bouwmeester, who has followed up a 37-point, plus-26 2013-14 campaign with marks of 10 points and plus-7 over 56 games.
