Tuesday's full practice proved to be a costly one for the St. Louis Blues.
Days after placing rookie wing Vladimir Tarasenko on injured reserve with a concussion and facial laceration sustained during Wednesday's game at the Colorado Avalanche, two more Blues forwards were hurt during practice.
Wednesday, the team announced that wing Andy McDonald has been placed on injured reserve with a left knee injury. McDonald is listed as week-to-week, and wing Alex Steen is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
"One guy is day-to-day, so it's not a big deal," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "The other guy is week-to-week. It happens. We've got lots of guys coming in that are hungry, guys that have played in the NHL. So we shouldn't miss a beat."
Hitchock said he has not ruled out Steen for Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.
