ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk will miss the game Monday against the Minnesota Wild (8 p.m., NBCSN) with the flu.

Shattenkirk, who has points in 12 of the past 15 games (one goal, 12 assists) missed the morning skate Monday and was considered a game-time decision. Coach Ken Hitchcock said the flu has been going around the Blues locker room, with five players in the past week with some form of illness. Shattenkirk is the first to miss a game due to illness.

Carlo Colaiacovo, signed to a one-year contract 13 days ago, replaced Shattenkirk in the lineup and will play his first game alongside Barret Jackman.
