Bouwmeester (personal) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Senators, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester was a little late joining the team for Tuesday's matchup against Toronto due to the birth of his child back home, but he will return to the lineup Thursday to presumably play alongside Colton Parayko. Not much of a scoring threat, his return is unlikely to have a huge overall impact in the vast majority of fantasy formats.

Bouwmeester will not draw into Tuesday's lineup due to a late arrival following the birth of a child, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester's absence is the result of having some travel issues that didn't allow him to make it into Toronto until shortly before the game, resulting in his absence from Tuesday's lineup. He should rejoin the lineup again Thursday against the Senators, though his two points (both in one game) over 16 contests this season leave him firmly off the fantasy radar in many formats.

Bouwmeester (lower body) went plus-3 with two empty shots on goal and a block in Saturday's 3-2 home win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran logged 17:34 of ice time, which was only a few ticks below his normal amount of playing time, and he looked sharp overall in his return from a nine-game injury layoff. Bouwmeester used to be a 40-point player starting with his 2005-06 campaign as a member of the Panthers, but he barely shoots the puck nowadays and is removed from the power play in St. Louis, so fantasy owners should look elsewhere for help on the virtual blue line.

The Blues activated Bouwmeester (lower body) from injured reserve Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester's return to action will undoubtedly improve the Blues' strength at defense, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as his lack of offensive upside keeps him from being a viable option in most season-long formats. His first chance to slot back into St. Louis' lineup will come Saturday against Carolina.

Bouwmeester is suffering from a lower-body malady that has sidelined him for the last eight games, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it's good to know Bouwmeester didn't suffer a recurrence of his ankle injury, he still remains on injured reserve ahead of Friday's tilt with Dallas -- although the Alberta native did take part in practice Thursday. Once given the green light, the veteran will likely bounce Vince Dunn from the blue line.

Bouwmeester (undisclosed) will not join the team for its four-game road trip, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Mike Yeo left open the possibility that Bouwmeester could meet up with the squad during the back half of the trip, but for now will remain on injured reserve for the time being. The blueliner has been limited to just 10 outings this season due to various maladies and had notched a mere two points in those contests.

Bouwmeester (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmesster's status has done a full 180 degree turn, after he was originally announced as being available Thursday versus the Ducks and will now miss the weekend matchups with Winnipeg. The team has not provided any details regarding the nature of the blueliner's ailment, so it's unclear whether it is related to the ankle injury that caused him to miss the first 21 games of the 2017-18 campaign. In the meantime, Samuel Blais was called up from the minors to fill out the 23-man roster.

Bouwmeester (undisclosed) has been ruled out of the Blues' next two games, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester was fully expected to be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Ducks, but he unexpectedly ended up being a late scratch for that contest after participating in pregame warmups. The veteran blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Flames. Jordan Schmaltz will continue to occupy Bouwmeester's spot in the lineup until he's given the green light to return.

Bouwmeester (undisclosed) will suit up against the Ducks on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester will slot back into the lineup following a brief one-game absence due to his undisclosed malady. The 34-year-old has logged a mere 10 games this season due to injuries, during which he has notched a disappointing two points. Once a 40-point producer for the Flames, the veteran has failed to crack the 20-point mark since the 2013-14 campaign.

Bouwmeester is bothered by an unspecified injury and will not suit up for Tuesday night's home game against the Lightning, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not abundantly clear what will cause the rugged defenseman to miss this next contest, but Rutherford adds that the ailment is not related to a fractured ankle that Bouwmeester sustained in training camp. Look for Jordan Schmaltz to replace him on the third defensive pair against the Bolts.
