He also got a broken foot.
St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has placed forward Jaden Schwartz on injured reserve.
Schwartz is considered week-to-week after suffering an injury to his right foot in the Blues’ 5-2 win against the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.
The Blues have recalled forward Dmitrij Jaskin from their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Chicago Wolves.
Jaskin, 21, has dressed in 17 games for Chicago this season, sharing fourth on the club with 15 points, including four goals and 11 assists. In addition, the 6-foot-3, 211-pound forward has appeared in six games with the Blues, posting a goal and four penalty minutes.
Schwartz, you might recall, is very important to this team. As a member of the STL Line, he has 27 points on the season. This might be a big problem for the Blues, or it might just be one more hurdle to overcome. It does give Jaskin a chance to show his stuff yet again. Where he will fit in the lines remains to be seen; it's just one more thing to look forward to with tomorrow night's game against, yet again, the Kings.
