A lot of things have gone right for the St. Louis Blues this season, but they’ve had to roll with some injury punches.

From Alex Steen to Andy McDonald and David Perron, the Blues have fought off adversity. Now it’s apparent that one of their pleasant (if subtle) free agent surprises will be on the shelf for at least a bit longer as Jason Arnott was placed on the injured reserve.

Arnott is dealing with an injured shoulder suffered thanks to a tumble into the boards on Feb. 3. There’s no word on how significant the issue is (aside from the fact that he’s on the IR, of course).

The Blues signed Arnott and Jamie Langenbrunner to matching one-year, $2.5 million contracts this summer. Arnott’s been a nice fit with 12 goals and 24 points while Langenbrunner has a respectable 18 points.

St. Louis scores by committee, but it will miss Arnott’s experience – and most importantly – his hard shot and scoring touch.

    Wow. Let’s hope Steener is close. Amac sounds close.

      Ya this team has actually been banged up the whole year but it has been unnoticed by every one else because of our success.
