Jay Bouwmeester D STL 26 Days

Bouwmeester (lower body) has been ruled out for the Blues' games Friday and Saturday, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.

It was believed that Bouwmeester hadn't been on the ice since suffering the lower-body injury last weekend, but he's actually skated on his own the past two days. Even so, he's not yet ready to face the rigors of a full game. He'll look to resume practicing Monday with the hope of receiving clearance to play next Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

Bouwmeester (lower body) is expected to miss his third straight game Saturday versus the Oilers, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Bouwmeester wasn't present at the Blues' morning skate and hasn't resumed on-ice work since suffering a lower-body injury last weekend. Chris Butler is once again in line to replace him on defense. Bouwmeester would seem unlikely to play in Minnesota on Saturday, either.

Bouwmeester (lower body) will miss Sunday's game against the Jets, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Bouwmeester's streak of 737 straight games will end as a result of the injury. With him out, either Carl Gunnarsson or Kevin Shattenkirk will likely slide into the top defensive pairing, while Chris Butler will likely dress in his place.

Bouwmeester assisted on a goal, spent four minutes in the penalty box and finished with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's win over the Senators, but left with a lower-body injury late in the game, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Despite being limited to 16:40 of ice time in the victory, Bouwmeester managed to turn in one of his better performances in what has been a dismal season, but the injury could represent another pitfall. It's uncertain if he'll be able to suit up for the second game of the Blues' weekend back-to-back on Sunday versus the Jets, putting the defenseman's streak of 737 consecutive games played on the line. With the Blues not holding a morning skate Sunday, Bouwmeester's status likely won't be known until pregame warmups.

Bouwmeester recorded his first point of the season -- a game-tying tally goal in the third -- in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Rangers.

It took 11 games, but J-Bouw finally found the scoresheet. The former 47-point rearguard has been a massive letdown for owners thus far in the season, but the points are bound to starting flowing in as long as he shares a top pairing with Alex Pietrangelo and averages over 2:00 of power-play time per game, as has been the case this season.
