It’s not the start with his new team Magnus Paajarvi was probably hoping for.
Paajarvi, the St. Louis Blues’ young forward, left Saturday’s game against the Nashville Predators and will not return due to an upper-body injury, as per Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Paajarvi had played just 3:34 of the first period, and did not come out for the second.
In three games with the Blues, Paajarvi had yet to record a point.
In the second period against the Predators, St. Louis forward Chris Stewart went to the locker room after he was hit into the boards by Nashville’s Patric Hornqvist. That’s according to Rutherford, who reported a few minutes later that Stewart had returned to the bench.
Updated: Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock didn’t know the nature of Paajarvi’s injury but said it is “pretty significant,” according to a tweet from Rutherford.
