Last night, St. Louis Blues fans watched as T.J. Oshie left the ice in pain after an attempted hit on San Jose Sharks’ Brent Burns.  Oshie fell to the ice on the play and unable to make it to the locker room.  Initially thought to be a shoulder injury, Oshie was examined by trainers in the runway behind the bench during the game who found it to be a rib injury.  Oshie was taken for x-rays after the game.

Today the St. Louis Blues announced that Oshie is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and is unlikely to play on Thursday against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Hopefully Oshie will be back soon and this will not be a problem that persists, more to come as we have it.

LET’S GO BLUES!

UPDATE (VIA ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH):

Coach Ken Hitchcock said it is unlikely Oshie will be ready to play on Thursday, when the Blues play host to the Phoenix Coyotes. But his absence is not expected to be extensive.
