Blues Place Stastny on IR

The St. Louis Blues placed forward Paul Stastny on IR with a lower body injury on Tuesday. The 31-year-old center has 35 points on the year, including six in his last five games for the Blues.

He was injured on this strange play in Toronto on February 9th, when he lost his balance after clipping skates with Nazem Kadri.

Stastny is currently fourth on the Blues with 35 points, including 10 on the power play. With Stastny on-ice at even strength the Blues are scoring 57.63 percent of goals, per Puckalytics.

On the power play he is second on the team in primary assists per 60 minutes, behind only Alex Steen, at 2.69.
