Schwartz (ankle) has been cleared medically, but likely won't return until Thursday's meeting with Colorado, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz will miss his 20th straight contest due to his ankle ailment Tuesday versus the Senators. The winger has been taking part in practice, which is a significant step in his recovery. Once ready to play, the 25-year-old will need to be activated off injured reserve, which will likely result in Oskar Sundqvist being sent down to the minors.

Schwartz (ankle) is a full participant -- including contact -- in Sunday's practice, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Mike Yeo said that the last step before Schwartz can return is contact drills, so this is a great sign for fantasy owners and Blues fans alike, especially after Saturday's lethargic 5-2 loss to Arizona. The Blues' have struggled offensively and on the power play without Schwartz, and his next chance to suit up will be Tuesday against the Senators. If he does return, it's likely he slots onto a line with Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko, reuniting the line that terrorized the league until Schwartz' injury.

Schwartz skated during Monday's morning practice, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz won't make the two-game road trip to eastern Canada, but he was seen in this video doing crossovers and looking strong on his skates during practice. The first game he can return for still appears to be Jan. 23 against the Senators, yet he'll likely need a few hard skates before that to get into hockey shape again.

Schwartz (ankle) had his walking boot removed Monday and head coach Mike Yeo said his recovery remains on track, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since Schwartz' recovery has progressed without a hitch he'll plausibly be re-evaluated as planned around the end of January, and if everything continues to remain on course, hopefully he'll return to the action shortly after.

Schwartz scored a pair of goals in Saturday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

What Schwartz is doing right now is simply insane. The top-line winger has been held off the scoresheet just once in his last seven contests and has racked up four goals and seven assists in that span. He's taken his game to new heights this season and is now up to a whopping 13 goals and 32 points in 24 contests on the year. Schwartz has been one of the best fantasy players in the NHL through the first quarter and his valuable two-way game is exemplified by his plus-19 rating. Schwartz is fantasy gold and an automatic roll every game.

Schwartz registered a goal and added two assists during Tuesday's 8-2 win over Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old winger has found the scoresheet in 18 of 22 games this season for 11 goals and 18 assists. After flashing tremendous offensive upside since entering the league as a 19-year-old in 2011-12, it appears this year will prove to be Schwartz's true breakout campaign. He's clicking with linemates Vladimir Tarasenko and Brayden Schenn, and Schwartz has a lot of room for negative statistical regression before it'll become a fantasy concern.
