Bouwmeester (hip) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against Chicago, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester has been a scratch for the Blues' last three games due to a nagging hip issue, but it appears that time off has allowed him to heal up enough to gut it out against the Blackhawks. The veteran blueliner may be in and out of the lineup throughout the season while continuing to nurse his injury, and he already has very little offensive upside, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars.

Bouwmeester (hip) will not suit up for Sunday afternoon's contest against Minnesota, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester is still working on recovering from his offseason hip surgery and has just two assists in 11 games this year. The Blues next game will be Wednesday against the rival Blackhawks, but there's no guarantee that the 6-foot-4 blueliner will be ready.

Bouwmeester (hip) isn't expected to play Friday against the Sharks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester is still recovering from offseason hip surgery, so the Blues will likely keep him out of the lineup until they're confident that he's back to 100 percent. Another update on the 35-year-old blueliner's status should be released once he's deemed fit to play.

Bouwmeester is not fully recovered from offseason hip surgery, so he'll sit out Tuesday's home game against the Hurricanes, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester has played in 11 of 12 games so far this season, averaging 19:30 of ice time. That's a good amount of rink run for the 35-year-old defenseman, but he was iced for only 14:29 against the Wild on Saturday, and that tied the fewest amount of minutes he's seen all season. With just two helpers representing his point total over 11 games combined with the latest news that he's still bothered by the hip injury, Bouwmeester's completely off the map in the fantasy realm.

Bouwmeester will dress for Monday's contest in Winnipeg, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sunreports.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old defenseman was a healthy scratch Saturday versus Toronto. Bouwmeester's insertion into the lineup comes after Robert Bortuzzo (lower body) had to leave the team and fly back to St. Louis. A minus-4 and without a point in six games, Bouwmeester doesn't warrant much consideration for fantasy deployment.

Bouwmeester will be a healthy scratch against the Maple Leafs on Saturday, Joshua Clipperton of The Canadian Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

One less veteran defenseman on the ice against what is arguably the league's top offense? That doesn't make much sense to us, but then again, the Blues really need to get Colton Parayko more playing time seeing as how the 2012 third-rounder has seen over a full-minute reduction in average ice time compared to last season's output.

Bouwmeester (hip) will gear up to play in Friday's preseason home game against the Blue Jackets, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester won't be a viable candidate for preseason DFS contests, as he's primarily viewed as a plus-defender with fading offensive skills. You'd have to go back to the 2013-14 season to see the last time he delivered more than 19 points over a given campaign.

Bouwmeester (hip) is "on target" to play in the Blues' Oct. 4 season opener against the Jets, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester still hasn't been cleared for contact, and it sounds like he'll be a limited participant for much of training camp, but he should be good to go once the games start to matter in October. Either way, there's no reason for fantasy owners to have the veteran defender on their radars, as he doesn't have enough offensive upside to be considered a viable option in most formats.

Bouwmeester (hip) has been practicing, albeit without contact, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Initial reports out of St. Louis suggested that the veteran defenseman would be ready for the start of training camp, but that's looking like a less probable scenario based on how he's feeling with training camp only a week away. Should Bouwmeester require additional time to heal, Jordan Schmaltz could take advantage of additional opportunities to prove he belongs at the top level.

Bouwmeester, who missed the end of last season to a hip injury, will be ready for training camp with the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Bouwmeester went through surgery to fix his hip issue when he was shut down in March, and his return was expected before training camp. The 34-year-old defenseman missed the majority of his team's games for the first time in his NHL career, as his age seems to be affecting his "iron man" reputation.
