Woywitka Recalled

By Brian Weidler, "Game Time" Prospect Department

The St. Louis Blues today recalled defenseman Jeff Woywitka from Peoria of the AHL.

Woywitka, a 6-02, 215-pound left-shooting blueliner, is having a career year in Peoria, with 10-19-29 totals, a plus-17 mark, and 33 PIM in 50 games, good for ninth place in the AHL defenseman scoring parade.

Woywitka will replace injured defender Christan Backman in the Blues' lineup while Backman is on IR, but upon Backman's return, the Blues will have a decision to make, as Woywitka would have to clear waivers in order to be sent back to Peoria.
