The St. Louis Blues have just made a shocking announcement.
According to a report from the Blues official website it now appears as though superstar forward Vladimir Tarasenko will miss the remainder of the season, and perhaps even more as a result of a major injury.
Vladimir Tarasenko will undergo surgery on his left shoulder Tuesday and will be re-evaluated in five months.
Tarasenko had points in five straight contests before leaving the Oct. 24 game vs. Los Angeles in the first period with the injury after playing just four minutes and 37 seconds. He will be placed on long-term injured reserve.
Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong will address the media about the injury on Tuesday at the team's practice facility.
Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
