WINNIPEG - Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo flew back to St. Louis with a lower-body injury and will not be in the lineup on Monday in Winnipeg.

Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said Bortuzzo will be evaluated in St. Louis and "we'll go from there."

Bortuzzo played 17 minutes and 46 seconds in the Blues' 4-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, scoring one goal and recording a plus-1 rating. He also had three hits and three blocked shots.

"Bortz played really well," Yeo said. "The goal is one thing, but you look at our penalty kill and how important that was in that last game, and he is a real strong penalty killer for us. I liked his game, I thought he was physical."
