"Dont be writing him off yet,"

UPDATE (Sunday, April 29 at 12:42 p.m.): Coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters after Sunday's practice that Alex Pietrangelo is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. "Don't be writing him off yet," Hitchcock said.

So our stud defenseman does not look to be concussed, but since things are day to day, its hard to say if he'll be back or not anytime soon. Lets hope sooner rather than later.

Pietrangelo Leaves Game One Hurt with updates on condition, video from practice today.

UPDATE (Sunday, April 29 at 12:42 p.m.): Coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters after Sunday's practice that Alex Pietrangelo is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. "Don't be writing him off yet," Hitchcock said.

Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo left Saturday's Game 1 after being pushed into the boards by Kings' forward Dwight King in the second period.

Pietrangelo's head hit the corner boards and King was given a two-minute boarding penalty.

"We'll evaluate him tonight and give you an update tomorrow," Blues Coach Ken Hitchcock said after Saturday's game. "We'll figure it out tomorrow and see how he feels and go from there. If he's not in, somebody else gets to jump up...somebody will have to step up and elevate their game."

Through six Playoff games, Pietrangelo leads all Blues defenseman in scoring with 4 points (0 goals, 4 assists).
