In what is seemingly weeks early, the Blues announced this morning that Roman Polak has been taken off the Injured Reserve and will suit up for Monday's game against Vancouver. He suffered a severed tendon in his wrist in a freak accident on Oct. 23 against Pittsburgh.

Ian Cole has been assigned to Peoria.
