ST. LOUIS - Blues goalie Jake Allen will be sidelined 10-14 days with back spasms and will miss the start of training camp.

In addition, forward Erik Foley will be out indefinitely after suffering a concussion at the 2018 NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, while goaltender Luke Opilka will also be sidelined indefinitely after undergoing hip surgery.

With the injuries, the Blues are expected to start training camp with 53 players on Friday at the Ice Zone at St. Louis Outlet Mall.

Also Wednesday, the Blues trimmed six players from the training camp roster: Dominik Bokk, Jared Thomas, Mathias Laferreire, Trenton Borque, David Noel and Tyler Tucker.
