NHL Injuries: St. Louis Blues' NIkita Nikitin Breaks Wrist, Should Miss Four Weeks

St. Louis Blues defenseman Nikita Nikitin, in America for the first time after being drafted by the Blues in 2004, will miss "at least four weeks" after breaking his right wrist in the Blues’ preseason game against Chicago.

Nikitin had spent his entire career in the Russian Superleague prior to coming to an agreement with the Blues in June. St. Louis Game Time, reacting to the early Twitter reports, hopes to see Ian Cole stick with the big club.
