Blues Add Andy McDonald To The LIst Of Walking Wounded

The injury bug got a jump on this season. B.J. Crombeen separated his shoulder in the last pre-season game. Carlo Colaiacovo suffered a possible concussion after a trip by Blake Geoffrion caused him to spill into the boards in the first game of the season. Now, in game three’s loss against the Dallas Stars, Andy McDonald suffered yet another fluke bump on the noggin.

If you remember, last December McDonald hit a rut on the ice in Edmonton, hitting his head on the knee of an Oiler. This time, a teammate bumped him. Nikita Nikitin tapped him from behind while Vernon Fiddler came in for a hit, causing Fiddler to hit McDonald in the head.

The Blues sent McDonald back to St. Louis for observation. He played the 3rd period, and complained of not feeling well on Friday. He’ll be out for tonight’s game against the San Jose Sharks. Either Evgeny Grachev or Ian Cole will be in for him. As Jeremy Rutherford pointed out, Grachev had fantastic chemistry with David Backes and Jami Langenbrunner.
