Blues' Schwartz out 12 weeks with fractured left ankle

Saturday, 10.24.2015 / 1:08 PM / News

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues forward Jaden Schwartz will be out at least 12 weeks after surgery to repair a fractured left ankle sustained at practice Friday.

Schwartz, who had four assists in seven games, was taking part in a warmup drill. He shot a puck and reached to get the rebound when he lost an edge and crashed into the net where goalie Brian Elliott was practicing.

Schwartz was transported to the Washington University Orthopedic Center, where he had surgery.

He will miss at least 41 games.

"I didn't think we anticipated the length of it," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said before the Blues played the New York Islanders on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; MSG+ 2, FS-MW). "Today is more of a scramble day. We'll just see what we got and then we'll really buckle down here over the weekend and prepare for how we're going to manufacture our lineup, so right now, it's kind of play this game as a sudden-death game, probably play a little shorter bench than we wanted to, and find out what looks like it sorts itself out."

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo recalled the day he was in the hospital with his childhood friend and the two were playing Pokemon.

Pietrangelo was 10; his friend Cosmo was 11.

As kids, they were supposed to be enjoying life without a worry in the world. But one day, Cosmo was gone; he succumbed to cancer, and Pietrangelo, who like many NHL players have stories to tell of experiences with the disease, was left to wonder why his friend was no longer around.

"That was the one thing I remember for some reason," Pietrangelo said. "We were playing Pokemon on the hospital TV. He was obviously sick at the time, but that was the one picture I still have in my mind 15 years later. That's the one picture I always replay in my mind.

Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel were on separate lines at Pittsburgh Penguins practice on Friday.

Crosby centered a line with Pascal Dupuis and Patric Hornqvist, and Kessel was at wing with center Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Plotnikov.

"We'll see how everybody responds, and ultimately I think everybody's role doesn't really change based on who they're playing with," Crosby told the Penguins website. "Everyone knows what they need to do, but sometimes it takes a little bit of [change] to get everybody going and hopefully that will be the answer for us."

Hockey Hall of Fame member Pat LaFontaine will play a part in remembering American hero, Lt. Michael P. Murphy, on Saturday during Military Appreciation Day at Twin Rinks at Eisenhower in East Meadow, N.Y.

LaFontaine will present Dan and Maureen Murphy, the parents of the Navy Seal, with a No. 16 jersey on the ice at approximately 4:45 p.m., prior to the opening faceoff of an Eastern Hockey League game between the New York Bobcats and New York Applecore.

Murphy was an ice hockey player from Long Island and one of the Navy Seals depicted in the 2013 film "Lone Survivor." Born in Smithtown, N.Y., and raised in Patchogue, N.Y., Murphy died at 29 in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005. He wore jersey No. 16 when he played hockey, as did LaFontaine.

"It is my privilege to participate in this event honoring Lt. Michael P. Murphy and his family for the ultimate sacrifice they have made on behalf of our nation," LaFontaine said. "It will be a special moment paying tribute to a true hero who displayed valor and undaunted courage to defend our country."

Jimmy Roberts, a five-time Stanley Cup champion and the first skater taken by the St. Louis Blues in the 1967 NHL expansion draft, died of cancer Friday. He was 75.

Roberts, a defenseman, led the Blues to the Stanley Cup Final in each of their first three seasons. On April 4, 1967, Roberts scored the Blues' first Stanley Cup Playoff goal with 6:47 remaining in the third period to give them a 1-0 victory in Game 1 against the Philadelphia Flyers in a quarterfinal series the Blues won in seven games.

"The St. Louis Blues and the Blues Alumni organization are deeply saddened by the passing of the original Blue Jimmy Roberts," the Blues said in a statement. "Jimmy was the franchise's first-ever draft pick and was instrumental in building the foundation of Blues hockey as a player and upholding its tradition as an alumnus. His tireless contributions to St. Louis, the Blues and the game of hockey as a whole will forever live as an example for future generations to follow. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Judy, and their two daughters."
