Blues' T.J. Oshie Breaks Left Ankle, Is Out Indefinitely

The St. Louis Blues lost their leader in assists (9) and points (10) last night when forward T.J. Oshie broke his left ankle in the third period of an 8-1 defeat against the Columbus Blue Jackets. NHL.com has further details.

The Blues fans at St. Louis Game Time, SB Nation's Blues blog, are understandably concerned with what the injury means for the team and its young star. "Let the worrying begin," writes Brad Lee. His post includes video of the incident and further analysis of its implications.

NHL.com in the same story linked above, notes the Blues have already "called up a pair of forwards from AHL Peoria to replace Oshie -- Nick Drazenovich and Chris Porter." More on those two players:

Drazenovic, a 2005 sixth-round pick, leads Peoria with 6 goals and is tied for third with 9 points in 13 games. Porter has 4 goals and 9 points in 14 games.

The Blues next take the ice Saturday night against the Phoenix Coyotes.
