Jordan Leopold Skates in Full Gear, Still a Ways Out For St. Louis Blues


Jordan Leopold has had a tough season for the St. Louis Blues. After missing a majority of the 2013-14 campaign with a hand injury, the 33-year-old veteran sustained a high-ankle sprain against the Winnipeg Jets on February 8. The Olympic break came at a good time for Leopold though, and he’s been able to focus on rehabbing during the Winter Games.

Today marked the first time he’d been out on the ice in full gear since the contest against Winnipeg.

Reports indicate that the sprain wasn’t as bad as originally thought, but it’s something that could bother him throughout the remainder of the season.

That won’t prevent Leopold from traveling with the team, though expectations for his return should be tampered for now.

Leopold has only appeared in 24 games for the Blues this season. He has one more year left on the extension that St. Louis gave him over the summer. The former second-round draft pick had found a comfort zone playing alongside Kevin Shattenkirk prior to the injury issues.
