ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues, already depleted because of injuries, will be without defenseman Alex Pietrangelo for Wednesday's game at Detroit.
The 20-year-old Pietrangelo has an unspecified upper-body injury and is questionable for Thursday's home game against Los Angeles. He leads Blues defensemen in assists (12) and points (15).
Pietrangelo left a pair of games last week but returned to finish both.
The Blues are already missing forwards David Perron (concussion), Andy McDonald (concussion) and T.J. Oshie (broken ankle) along with defenseman Roman Polak (wrist). Defenseman Barret Jackman (knee sprain) missed about three weeks earlier this season.
