ST. LOUIS — The injuries just keep coming for the Blues.
The team announced that forward Oskar Sundqvist is heading to the IR with a lower-body injury he suffered in the team's win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
He will be re-evaluated when the team returns to St. Louis.
Sundqvist managed to score two goals against Tampa before suffering the injury Wednesday, and eight goals and four assists on the season.
In a corresponding move, the Blues have recalled forward Austin Poganski from their AHL affiliate in San Antonio. Poganski, 23, has 13 points for San Antonio this season and was originally drafted by the Blues in 2014.
Sundqvist's injury is just one of many for the Blues so far this season. The team is without forward Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen for an extended period of time, forward Klim Kostin who was just recently sent back to the AHL is also hurt and defenseman Robert Bortuzzo is currently serving a suspension.
Despite the injuries, the defending champion Blues are still leading the Western Conference in points.
