Due to a concussion, the St. Louis Blues have placed left wing Alexander Steen on the injured list. According to the Associated Press,

General manager Doug Armstrong says the league’s No. 2 goal scorer will be out indefinitely.

Armstrong announced the move in a statement Saturday before the team’s game that night with Chicago.

Steen hasn’t played since he left a game against Edmonton on Dec. 21 with what the team called an “upper-body injury.”

Steen is the Blues’ leading scorer with 24 goals and 38 points in 35 games. He has six game-winning goals, second most in the league.

It’s a tough loss for the Blues at the current moment, as they signed Steen to a three year extension worth $17.4 million just a couple of weeks ago.

St. Louis is having a great season thus far, and while it may be hard to play without having Steen on the ice, it’s still doable, and the Blues will still be able to find ways to win. They are currently 24-7-5 on the season, and sit in 2nd place in the Central division.
