Jaden Schwartz Breaks Ankle



Sheesh.  Even our prospect forwards can't escape the injury bug. Blues Prospect Schwartz Out 6 Weeks

St. Louis Blues’ first round draft pick in 2010, Jaden Schwartz, will miss the remainder of the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championships and 6 weeks total after suffering a fractured left ankle in Team Canada’s victory over the Czech Republic on December 28.

Schwartz, 18, tallied a goal and two assists in two appearances for Team Canada at this year’s tournament. Currently in his freshman season at Colorado College, the 5’10, 182-pound forward leads the nation in points per game (1.53) among rookies with 11 goals and 15 assists in 17 games.

That leaves Tasarenko and Wannstrom as the only Blues' prospects at the World Juniors.  (As I type this Wannstrom has just scored for Sweden against the Czech Republic.  Kid looks pretty good, but the Czechs look truly dreadful.)
