Shattenkirk has been on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. He’s only played three games this season; his last was on Oct. 13 versus Calgary.
Last week, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Shattenkirk was close to returning.
“He’s days away; he’s not weeks away,” Hitchcock said, per NHL.com.
The Blues’ next game is Saturday in Nashville.
With Shattenkirk, the Blues would have seven healthy defenseman.
