Blues place Paajarvi on injured reserve
The St. Louis Blues on Wednesday placed forward Magnus Paajarvi on injured reserve with an upper-body injury

Magnus Paajarvi was placed on injured reserve Wednesday by the St. Louis Blues with an upper-body injury.

Paajarvi, 22, was hurt in the first period of a 6-1 win against the Nashville Predators on Saturday and missed the rest of the game.

In four games this season Paajarvi is scoreless. A first-round pick (No. 10) in the 2009 NHL Draft, he was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers in an offseason trade for forward David Perron.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
