ST. LOUIS - Keith Tkachuk's wrist is just fine.

The St. Louis Blues announced Friday that x-rays on the forward's left wrist were negative. He is listed as day-to-day.

Tkachuk was hit with a Matthias Ohlund slapshot early in the thrid period of Thursday's game in Vancouver. He left immediately and did not return.

The 36-year-old has 21 goals and 39 points in 69 games this season.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
