Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko broke his hand
March 17 , 2014
St. Louis Blues' T.J. Oshie is expected to be absent on Monday since his wife is due to give birth. However, Vladimir Tarasenko's absence is more long-term.
Reports suggest that the player's hand is broken and will require surgery. He was injured during the game on Saturday and is expected to be re-evaluated after six weeks.
Tarasenko has nine points in his previous eight games. With him out, the team asked Dmitrij Jaskim from the American Hockey League to play.
