Huskins: Ankle not broken
The St. Louis Blues got good news today on defenseman Kent Huskins.

Huskins, who some feared had a broken bone in his left ankle suffered in Saturday's loss in Calgary, instead only has a deep bone bruise, and is listed as day to day.

He sat out Sunday's loss to Edmonton, since the Blues don't play again until Friday, that could be the extent of his absence.

Huskins has 2 goals and 2 assists in nine games, and his plus-6 rating is tied for second on the team. He's also tied for the team lead with 19 blocked shots.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
