The St. Louis Blues placed forward Jaden Schwartz on injured reserve Sunday with a right ankle injury. The Blues will re-evaluate him in six weeks.
The 25-year-old winger suffered the injury during the Blues’ 6-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings Saturday.
Schwartz is currently tied for ninth in the NHL with 35 points (14 goals, 21 assists) and ranks second with a +23 rating through 30 games this season.
The Wilcox, Sask., native is in his seventh season with the Blues after being drafted 14th overall in 2010.
