St. Louis Blues scoring leader Alexander Steen is out indefinitely with a concussion and on Saturday was placed on injured reserve.
According to Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong, Steen is able to exercise but the club has set no timetable for his return. Armstrong said the concussion likely was the result of several hits Steen has taken in recent games.
Steen's 24 goals rank second in the NHL, already tying his career high in just 35 games. He also has a team-leading 38 points, including six game-winning goals.
Also on Saturday, the Blues recalled forward Sergey Andronov under emergency conditions. A third-round draft pick out of Russia in 2009, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Andronov has seven goals and 13 points in 28 games this season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves.
