David Backes Injury: Possible Concussion?

David Backes left tonight's game after a hit from Senators forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau Colin Greening (sorry, I looked incorrectly at the number. It was 11 pm when I wrote this).Greening hit Backes hard, apparently helmet to helmet. Backes immediately skated to the bench, woozy and stumbling on his way back to the locker room. He would not return.


This would be a difficult loss for the Blues to deal with. They're already missing Vladimir Sobotka and Jaden Schwartz due to nagging upper body injuries. Losing their captain on top of that doesn't put the team in the best position to take on the San Jose Sharks tomorrow night at Scottrade.

No status on Backes has been released by the team, but one can presume that it is probably not good. Check back for an update when the team releases a statement.
