Every team in the NHL has injuries to key players, but the 2011-2012 St. Louis Blues seemed to have beyond their share. The Blues lost 148 games due to injuries from just four players who if healthy should play a big role for the 2012-2013 season.
First is Andy McDonald who missed 57 games last season. Andy scored 10 goals and added 12 assists in his limited time on the ice. Anyone who watched the Blues with a healthy McDonald could see the difference he makes for the team. McDonald has speed and the ability to create scoring chances for other players. If McDonald can play even 70 games in the 2012-2013 season I could easily see him racking up 60 points before season’s end.
