Thursday, Oct. 25, Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo was placed on injury reserve after the Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced to the public that Bortuzzo had a lower body injury. Bortuzzo has dressed to play for five games this season so far and sadly he must sit out until they evaluate him. In the upcoming two weeks, Bortuzzo is supposed to be re-evaluated to see if he will be able to play for the rest of the season with his teammates.
Then Saturday, Oct. 27, Blues goalie Jake Allen stopped 18-21 goals in the St. Louis Blues v. Chicago Blackhawks game. However with one minute remaining on the clock in the second period, Allen protected the goal by having a collision with a Blackhawks player. After the great save, Blues Head Athletic Trainer Ray Barile had to help Allen to the locker room since he was badly injured in the collision. There have been no updates on his injury, but he will be evaluated in the upcoming weeks.
Meanwhile, Monday, Oct. 29, 20-year-old Jordan Kyrou was traded from the St. Louis Blues to the San Antonio Rampage. Kyrou had appeared in nine games this season and unfortunately, he was reassigned.
Moving forward, the Blues play three home games Nov. 6, 9 and 11 at the Enterprise Center off Clark Avenue. Go support your St. Louis Blues.
