LOS ANGELES (AP) The St. Louis Blues have activated Vladimir Tarasenko from injured reserve. The forward has not played this season after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder last August.

Tarasenko is expected to be in the lineup when the Blues face the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

The 29-year old right wing has had three shoulder surgeries over the past three years. The last two were the result of him dislocating the shoulder during an Oct. 24, 2019, game against the Kings. He returned when the NHL season restarted but played only two games in the series against Vancouver in the Edmonton bubble before aggravating the injury.
