Alex Pietrangelo Injury: "Watch The Warmups" To See If He'll Play, Says Hitchcock

Well, this is unexpected. After speculation that Alex Pietrangelo was suffering from a concussion after being hit into the boards by Dwight King Saturday night, Blues’ coach Ken Hitchcock is calling him a game time decision with a possible lower body injury instead. How can we tell if he’s playing tonight? As Hitch says, watch the warmups.

“Right now he’s an injured player, but if he’s in the warmup before the game, he’s a player (tonight),” Hitchcock said after today’s morning skate. “Right now we’re deciding. He feels good so far, so we’ll see him make it through the rest of the day, but we’re not going to put him in the warmup unless we’re going to play him. If he’s out there for the pregame skate tonight, he’s definitely going to be a player.”
