After yesterday’s rumors that Andy McDonald would be back to action today it shows that rumors can come true.

The Blues have taken McDonald off of IR and will have him in the lineup tonight as the Blues take on the San Jose Sharks. McDonald has played in just three games this season since being knocked out of action with a concussion.

Since the last time McDonald played, the Blues have changed coaches going from Davis Payne to Ken Hitchcock and find themselves in the thick of the race for the top spot in the Western Conference. McDonald brings a bit of speed, offensive skill, and ability to win faceoffs back to the Blues lineup.

With Matt D’Agostini and Jason Arnott on IR and Alex Steen still out, the Blues can use the offensive pick-me-up.
