The St. Louis Blues have activated forward David Perron from injured reserve, the team announced Saturday.

Perron, who missed St. Louis’ last 24 games because of an upper-body injury, has tallied 17 goals and 18 assists in 45 games this season.

Over the course of his 12-year career, the Sherbrooke, Que. native has accumulated 479 points in 767 games.

In a corresponding move, the Blues assigned forward Jordan Kyrou to the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage.
