The Blues have today recalled defenseman Tyson Strachan from the Peoria Rivermen. Carlo Colaiacovo has been placed on IR - retroactive to 21 January - with a lower body injury.
Tyson Strachan has played in 31 games for the Rivermen this season with 2 goals and 12 assists - Strachan also has 48 penalty minutes. He has played 6 games for the Blues this season - collecting 2 assists and 4 penalty minutes.
David Backes is skating again and both he and Colaiacovo will accompany the team on the upcoming road trip to Western Canada.
Tell me - is this Colaiacovo's first IR since coming to the Blues?
