ST. LOUIS — With Robert Bortuzzo having returned and Joel Edmundson on the comeback trail, the St. Louis Blues reduced their defensive corps on Thanksgiving Day.
Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced on Thursday that the team has assigned defenseman Petteri Lindbohm to their AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves.
Lindbohm, 23, has dressed in five games for the Blues this season, serving four penalty minutes. The 6-foot-3, 209-pound defenseman has also made five appearances for the Wolves, serving nine penalty minutes. Overall, the Helsinki, Finland native has posted three points (two goals, one assist) in 38 career NHL regular season games.
The subtraction of Lindbohm leaves the Blues with six defensemen on the active roster, plus Edmundson, who is currently on injured reserve with an upper-body injury.
