T.J. Oshie Injury: Blues Will Be Without Oshie For Two Games

The St. Louis Blues will kick off their four-game slate this week without the services of leading scorer T.J. Oshie, who, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's John Rutherford, will miss two games with a wrist injury. Oshie has been dealing with a nagging injury to his wrist since late November.

The Blues center, and first round pick in 2005, currently leads the team in points with 23, thanks to 11 goals and 12 assists. It's currently unclear who will replace Oshie on the roster, but Blues stars such as Alex Steen and David Backes will certainly be looked at to pick up the slack offensively.

Oshie is expected to return to the line up for St. Louis' Dec. 30 game vs. the Nashville Predators.
