The St. Louis Blues placed forward Brenden Morrow on injured reserve Monday with an upper-body injury. Morrow was evaluated and diagnosed by team physician Dr. Rick Wright at Washington University Orthopedics and Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Morrow has three points (two goals, one assist) and 12 penalty minutes in nine games for the Blues, who signed him as a free agent on Sept. 23. In 14 NHL seasons, Morrow has 545 points (251 goals, 294 assists) and 1,234 penalty minutes in 859 games.
He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
