Sundqvist placed on IR by Blues with lower-body injury

Forward will be reevaluated when team returns to St. Louis; Poganski recalled from AHL @NHLdotcom

Oskar Sundqvist was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury by the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

The forward, who scored two goals but was injured in the second period of a 4-3 win at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday, will be reevaluated when the Blues return to St. Louis following their game at the Dallas Stars on Friday.

Sundqvist has 12 points (eight goals, four assists) in 26 games this season.

Selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third round (No. 81) of the 2012 NHL Draft, Sundqvist has 52 points (24 goals, 28 assists) in 170 games with the Penguins and Blues. Last season, he set an NHL career-high in goals (14), assists (17) and points (31) in 74 regular-season games, and had nine points (four goals, five assists) in 25 Stanley Cup Playoff games to help the Blues win the Stanley Cup for the first time in their 51-season history.

As a result, St. Louis recalled forward Austin Poganski from San Antonio of the American Hockey League.
