Steen picked up a helper in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Steen has strung together three points in his last four games and is up to four goals and 20 points in 35 contests. While the goal-scoring is down, Steen is still producing points at a decent rate and should see his 4.6 shooting percentage improve in the near-future. The veteran plays on the first power-play unit and remains valuable in many fantasy settings.

Steen tallied two assists in a 6-1 win over the Red Wings on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Steen has three assists in his last two games and 15 points in 24 games. But he hasn't scored a goal in 10 games and it's abundantly clear his 33-goal 2013-14 is an absolute outlier. Steen's production is starting to quietly decline, but he still has fantasy value in many formats.

Steen dished out a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Steen is heating up after a slow start and now has six points in his last six games. The veteran is stuck on three goals this season, but he's been shooting the puck more frequently and should pad those totals in the near-future. Both assists against the Wild came with the man advantage, where Steen has once again found success on the first unit. The second-line winger is picking it up and thriving on the power play, so get him in your lineup.

Steen (hand) will make his season debut Wednesday against Chicago, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blues will be ecstatic to have Steen back, who is one of their best players and something of a Swiss Army knife for the team. Steen has hit the 50-point plateau in each of the last four seasons, scoring a total of 90 goals and 229 points over the course of 285 games. Steen is expected to slot in to a top-six role, as well as give a boost to a Blues' power play that's already converting at a 20.8% clip.

Steen (hand) will be re-evaluated following Wednesday's game-day skate to see if he is healthy enough to suit up against the Blackhawks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Steen has been trending in the right direction -- resuming practice with his teammates -- and it looks like the game-day skate is the final hurdle for him to clear. If the winger is given the green light, the Blues will need to clear a spot on the 23-man roster.

Steen (hand) joined his teammates on the ice for practice Monday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Steen is still looking to make his season debut, having picked up his ailment during the preseason. Despite being hard hit by injuries, the Blues are still sitting at 4-2-0 and third place in the Central Division. Getting back a playmaker of Steen's caliber would only serve to boost St. Louis's offense. Prior to getting back into a game, the 33-year-old will need to be activated off IR and a corresponding player sent down to the minors.

Steen is making progress in his recovery from a hand injury, the St.Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's being reported that Steen could accompany the Notes for practice at some point during their upcoming four-game road trip, which begins with Monday's game against the Islanders and wraps up in Tampa Bay on Saturday versus the Bolts. However, Blues coach Mike Yeo doesn't believe Steen or Jay Bouwmeester (ankle) will be ready for live action on this road stretch. "So they're both progressing but I wouldn't expect either of them to be playing in any of these games on the road trip," said the bench boss. Assuming that holds true, fantasy owners shouldn't expect the skaters to return until Oct. 18 at the earliest.

Steen suffered a hand injury in Monday's preseason outing and will miss at least three weeks.

EDGE Analysis

The team announced that Steen would be re-evaluated in three weeks, which not only rules him out for training camp, but would keep him out for at least the first four games of the season. The Blues were hard hit by injuries last year, although the 33-year-old was relatively healthy and appeared in 76 outings. Even if he misses a few contest at the start of 2017-18, the winger should be capable of recording a fifth straight 50-plus point campaign.
