Jamie Langenbrunner Out Indefinitely for St. Louis Blues

St. Louis Blues’ veteran left winger and assistant captain, Jamie Langenbrunner, is out indefinitely.

GM Doug Armstrong announced tonight that the two time Stanley Cup champion is scheduled to receive hip surgery to repair a torn labrum.

So far this season, Langenbrunner has dressed in four games for the Blues posting just one assist.

Langenbrunner, who will be a unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, signed a one year contract in the offseason to return to the Note for his second year.  Surgery will keep Jamie Langenbrunner out of the lineup for the rest of this season.

More to come as we have it.  Tune in now to FSMW to watch the St. Louis Blues taking on the Anaheim Ducks.

    Man, who cares ? He hasn’t been a factor with the team anyway ! The team is playing sloppy as HELL, & Elliot can’t make a big save if his life depended on it ! They, being the front office needs to do something about this cluster FUCK of a team defense, to shake these guys up & get their attention ! I’m tired of rooting for team that CHOKES, & decides to try & mail in games after they get 2 goal leads ! Worse yet, the thinking that everybody is picking us to win the Stanley Cup, so we are going to win tonight, & don’t have to try so hard ! I’m tired of this BELIEVE BULLSHIT, i’ll start BELIEVIN, when they show me they can win the Stanley Cup ! Until then, SHUT UP, & PLAY HOCKEY for however long it takes ! If it takes you 60 minutes, play 60 minutes ! If it takes you 65, play 65 minutes ! STOP, with this 20 minutes of play & then coasting the rest of the game ! I’m tired of rooting for a team that hasn’t given me anything !

      It is a rough time right now for the Blues, yes, but it is not time to panic yet. At the beginning of the year, Hitchcock said it would take 6 weeks for this team to be completely in sync. We are going to lose games. They need to get it together and do it quickly, but Elliott lost his confidence, the D doesn’t have confidence in him, and the offense isn’t fore-checking hard enough.

      They know their issues and they will work hard to fix them. The Kings barely made the playoffs last year and they got the cup. You never know.

      The story here is not losing a guy who you need on the ice, but that a sure HOF player probably has played his last game in the NHL. I wouldn’t expect him to be back on the ice again.

      The team will get better, but it is going to have growing pains until the guys on the ice are in their prime. Sadly, they are still developing. With Halak back, they might be able to play with a little more confidence. Thank you for sharing and keep reading. We enjoy hearing your thoughts.

        Yeah, you’re right ! I’m just a little pissed i guess . But, the difference between us, & the Kings is : They had the size, & skill that we don’t have . They reminded me of the Ducks the year they won the cup . They also have 3 legitimate centers that can play on any line ( Kopitar, Richards, & Stoll ) unlike what we have, Backes is 1st line by default, Berglund 2nd line by default . I know it sounds negative but, honestly those 2 really only 2nd, & 3rd line centers respectively . Like I commented on your other article, about Tyler Myers, it’s going to take something that drastic to get either one of those 2 over the hump !

        • Alex Hodschayan

          Very true. We don’t have the top end talent that we need up the middle. Using Steen as a center works, but it is not ideal. Berglund is good, but streaky and Backes is best suited for a 2nd line role. He gets top line billing, but he is a physical guy that gets sloppy goals. Backes really fills the role Tkachuk left, but we need better than that.
