St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today that defenseman Roman Polak will be sidelined indefinitely with a fractured right foot. He suffered the injury in the third period on Jan. 17 vs. Chicago.  In addition, the club has recalled defenseman Steve Wagner from the Blues’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen.

Wagner, 24, has skated in 16 games for the Blues this season, collecting two points (one goal, one assist) along with 18 penalty minutes.  The 6-1, 191-pound defenseman has played in 40 National Hockey League games, all with St. Louis, collecting 10 points (three goals, seven assists).  This season with Peoria, Wagner has played in 23 games, notching 13 points (four goals, nine assists) and 17 penalty minutes.

The Grand Rapids, Minnesota native was signed by the Blues as an undrafted free agent on March 20, 2007.
Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
