St. Louis Blues enforcer RW Cam Janssen (concussion & sternum contusion) is expected to miss 2 weeks.

Concussion and sternum contusion? Jeez, rub some dirt on it. (Seriously, though, that sounds terrible. Could it be more than two weeks?)

Dan O’Neill of St. Louis Today was worried about the concept of Janssen being injured when he wrote a recap of the game last night.

Cam Janssen did not return for the third period. Blues fans can hope for the best, but it did not look good. Janssen took a nasty shot in the head. If he is injured for any length of time, not sure who the team would call up to fill his role.

For two weeks or so, the Blues will need to find a way.

    You do realize Gold “reports” things he sees on other reporters twitter feeds right? Like he say this from Jeremy Rutherford’s

    Janssen was clearly “out” before he ever hit the ice. He had that “who am I?” look when he opened his eyes.
