St. Louis Blues: Jaden Schwartz Suffers Leg Injury, Ty Rattie Recalled, Brian Elliott Starts Tomorrow


The St. Louis Blues, who have already dealt with key injuries early this season to Patrik Berglund, Robby Fabbri, Kevin Shattenkirk, and Paul Stastny, have suffered what seems to be another big blow. In the team’s practice earlier today, forward Jaden Schwartz suffered a leg injury. Schwartz’s injury occurred as he slipped before hitting the post and his left leg crashed into the left post, according to’s Lou Korac.

Schwartz was helped off the ice, and he put no pressure on his left leg as he exited. He was later sent to the hospital. A further update on Schwartz’s status will be provided tomorrow. With Schwartz’s latest inury, the Blues have announced that they have recalled forward Ty Rattie from the Chicago Wolves and that he will be in the lineup for tomorrow night’s game against the New York Islanders. Rattie has four goals and three assists in three games with the AHL’s Wolves.

Despite all of the injuries piling up, the Blues did receive some positive news on the injury front. Both Fabbri (concussion) and Shattenkirk (groin) are out for tomorrow’s game, but both are expected to return for Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Brian Elliott will get the start in goal tomorrow night as the Blues begin their five-game homestand. Eliott is off to a perfect 4-0-0 start this season.
