Oshie was leading the team with 10 points when he was hurt Nov. 10 at Columbus and has been skating daily the past few weeks. The original timetable projected a mid- to late February return.
Two other Blues forwards, Andy McDonald and David Perron, are out with concussions. The Blues added depth by signing free agent forward Marek Svatos to a one-year, two-way contract. The 28-year-old Svatos is a former 32- and 26-goal scorer with the Colorado Avalanche, but began this season playing in the top Russian league.
