Carter Hutton will not play for the St. Louis Blues against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday after the goaltender injured his neck.

Jake Allen will start with Ben Wexler as an emergency backup at SAP Center.

Hutton was 1-2-2 in his past six starts, allowing 16 goals. Allen has not won since Feb. 9 (0-4-0 in five games).

Wexler, 23, played 26 games over three seasons at the University of Illinois from 2014-17.

The Blues recalled goaltender Ville Husso from San Antonio of the American Hockey League under emergency conditions. He will join St. Louis for their game Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings.
