Blues' Sobotka placed on IR
St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Sobotka has been placed on injured reserve and is out for at least two weeks with an ankle injury, general manager Doug Armstrong announced Tuesday morning.

Sobotka was injured during practice Monday when he was hit in the left ankle with a puck. He has two goals and 10 points this season for the Blues in 27 games. He had a career-high seven goals and 29 points last season for the Blues.

"It doesn't sound too serious in the sense that he's not a surgical candidate or anything like that," Blues general manager Doug Armstrong told Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch. "But we're going to re-evaluate in a couple of weeks."
Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
