Blues defenseman will miss 4-6 weeks @NHLdotcom

ST. LOUIS (AP) -St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay McKee will be out four to six weeks with a fractured right foot that he suffered in Thursday night's preseason game at Minnesota.

It's the latest setback for McKee, who played only 23 games last season in the first year of a four-year, $16 million contract. He was hindered mostly by a hip injury.

Dr. Rick Wright, the Blues' team physician, said the injury will not require surgery.

In 2005-06, McKee led the NHL in blocked shots with the Buffalo Sabres.
