The St. Louis Blues have activated forward Alex Steen from injured reserve and he will be a game-time decision against the Ottawa Senators.

David Perron will miss Saturday’s game with an upper-body injury and is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Craig Berube.

Steen has missed the past six games with a left-shoulder injury after taking a hard hit from Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Radko Gudas back on Jan. 7.

The 34-year-old has scored six goals and added nine assists in 32 games with St. Louis this season. Steen has tallied 593 points in 930 NHL games during his 14-year career.

Perron was on a 13-game point streak, which was the longest active streak in the NHL. The 30-year-old has 17 goals, 18 assists and 35 points in 45 games.
