The rehab process wasn’t enough for T.J. Oshie‘s injured ankle, so the St. Louis Blues forward decided to undergo surgery on Tuesday.

While that procedure was described as successful, it amounts to tough news for the offensively challenged Blues because Oshie is being labeled as week-to-week.

In other words, St. Louis would probably need to make the playoffs (and perhaps win a round or two) if the Blues wanted to see the talented 26-year-old suit up again this season.

Oshie has seven goals and 13 assists for 20 points in 30 games in 2013.
