The St. Louis Blues will face the Minnesota Wild on NBCSN Monday without Kevin Shattenkirk thanks to his case of the flu, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Jeremy Rutherford reports.

Shattenkirk, 24, might get lost in the shuffle a bit on a deep Blues team, but he’s one of their most notable defensemen. He’s been quite the playmaker from the blueline this season, as 15 of his 16 points have been assists.

As expected, this will open the door for Carlo Colaiacovo‘s season debut.

The Blues have won three in a row and five of their last six, building a franchise-best 16-3-3 start. The Wild aren’t that far behind with a 15-5-4 record.

    Uh oh- looks like Colaiacavo will be paired with Jackman. I’d feel better if he was with Polak.

    Disaster looming with Carlo out there, either he will get hurt or be responsible for multiple goals allowed, he’s horrible
