Petteri Lindbohm is back with the Blues to provide injury insurance.
The St. Louis Blues announced on Saturday morning that they’ve recalled defenseman Petteri Lindbohm from the AHL Chicago Wolves.
Lindbohm serves as insurance for Carl Gunnarsson, who has missed the past two games with a lower-body injury, and Robert Bortuzzo, who exited Friday night’s shootout loss with an upper-body injury. It’s very possible that he could suit up for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Nashville Predators.
Lindbohm played in five games with the Blues earlier this season, playing with Colton Parayko and generally performing well. He ended up with a minus-3 rating, but that was because he was on the ice for three goals against in the Blues’ 8-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on November 12.
The 23-year-old defenseman has played in a total of 38 NHL games over the past three seasons, collecting two goals and an assist with a minus-8 rating.
Lindbohm, who has dealt with multiple injuries this season while playing in the AHL, has played 47 games for the Wolves this season, collecting seven goals and eight assists with a plus-1 rating and 52 penalty minutes.
