Blues' Jaden Schwartz (elbow) to make season debut Thursday

St. Louis Blues winger Jaden Schwartz (elbow) will play for the first time this season on Thursday versus the Edmonton Oilers.

What It Means:

Schwartz was originally expected to be out until at least the end of the month, so this is welcome news for him and the Blues as he only missed four games. "He hasn't missed any time as far as ice," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He's been practicing with us for a week now. He looks like he's got a lot of jump. He looks like he's ready to play. Sure there's going to be a tempo issue because he was only able to play the one exhibition game. But I think he's going to be up to speed right away." David Perron will likely bump down to the third line after he had been logging some ice time with Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko while Schwartz was out.

In 79 contests over the rest of the season, our models expect Schwartz to record 20 goals and 54 points.
