Steen was second in the NHL with 24 goals when the Blues placed him on IR late last month, retroactive to Dec. 21 when he was injured against Edmonton. He's second on the team with 38 points, two points behind T.J. Oshie, in 35 games with six game-winning goals.

Oshie, who has scored the Blues' last three goals, has played in 46 games.

Steen was sidelined soon after signing a three-year, $17.4 million contract extension.

He missed 39 games with a concussion in 2011-12.

Forward Dmitrij Jaskin was assigned to Chicago of the AHL. The 20-year-old Jaskin scored his first career goal Dec. 28 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Oilers, Panthers swap

EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers have acquired centre Steve Pinizzotto and winger Jack Combs from the Florida Panthers in exchange for centre Ryan Martindale and winger Derek Nesbitt.

Pinizzotto, 29, has recorded seven points (six goals, one assist) and 67 penalty minutes in 21 games this season with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage.

Combs, 25, has 21 points (12 goals, nine assists) and 20 penalty minutes in 37 games over two seasons with Rampage.

Martindale, 22, has played in 22 games for the AHL's Oklahoma City Barons this season, posting 10 points (three goals, seven assists).

Nesbitt, 31, has 10 goals and nine assists for the Barons.

 

Habs bolster lineup

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens recalled forward Joonas Nattinen and defenceman Nathan Beaulieu from AHL Hamilton on Friday.

Beaulieu has four goals and 10 assists in 32 AHL games and had one assist in five games for Montreal this season.

The 23-year-old Nattinen has five goals and six assists in 37 games for the Bulldogs this season. He was picked in the third round of the 2009 draft by Montreal. He has yet to play an NHL game.

 

Clarkson goes on IR

 

THE Toronto Maple Leafs put forwards David Clarkson and Frazer McLaren on injured reserve Friday.

Clarkson will be sidelined reportedly to have a bursa sac in his elbow removed.

In his first season with the Maple Leafs after signing a seven-year, $36.75-million contract, Clarkson has three goals, eight points and 51 penalty minutes in 36 games.

McLaren has played in 22 games this season and is scoreless with 67 penalty minutes.
