Blues activate Elliott from IR

Nashville, TN ( – The St. Louis Blues have activated
goaltender Brian Elliott off injured reserve.

Elliott had missed 14 games with a lower body injury he sustained during a
Nov. 25 game against Ottawa. He will enter Tuesday’s game against Nashville
with a record of 8-4-1 and a 1.82 goals-against average.

The Blues now have three NHL-caliber goaltenders, with Jake Allen and Martin
Brodeur also on the roster.

Brodeur signed with St. Louis in early December to help fill the void during
Elliott’s absence. The former New Jersey Devils star has appeared in six games
and is 3-2-0 with a 2.63 GAA and one shutout for the Blues. He blanked
Colorado on Monday for his 125th career shutout.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong had indicated that the club would keep
all three goaltenders until Elliott proves he is fully ready to resume a
normal workload.

The Blues also placed forward Chris Porter on injured reserve because of a leg
injury he sustained during Monday’s game against Colorado.
