Oshie still out for Blues; Jaskin to make NHL debut (Updated)

4 Comments

With just five goals in their last five games, it’s safe to say the St. Louis Blues are missing TJ Oshie.

But Oshie won’t play again tonight when the Blues host Vancouver, and it’s not clear when he’ll be able to return from an injured ankle that’s kept him out of the lineup since March 28.

True Hockey’s Andy Strickland is “hearing” that the 26-year-old forward required a procedure that “will keep him out for at least a few more days.”

The procedure may have required a screw to fix Oshie’s ankle, according to Strickland.

Update:

In search of some offense, Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock has picked tonight for 20-year-old forward Dmitrij Jaskin to make his NHL debut.
