Blues place Edmundson on IR, recall Lindbohm
ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues announced several roster moves on Monday afternoon, placing defenseman Joel Edmundson on injured reserve with an upper-body injury, recalling defenseman Petteri Lindbohm from the AHL Chicago Wolves and sending forward Ty Rattie to the Wolves for a conditioning assignment.
Edmundson was injured in Sunday’s 5-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche. The team said Monday that he will be re-evaluated in three weeks. He had played in all 13 games for the Blues this season, collecting an assist and 17 penalty minutes.
Lindbohm has played in five AHL games for the Wolves this season. He had yet to record a point and had spent nine minutes in the penalty box. Over the past two seasons, Lindbohm has played in 33 games for the Blues, collecting two goals and an assist with 33 penalty minutes.
Rattie had played in just one game this season, serving as a healthy scratch for the other 12. He has not dressed for a game since October 18, so the conditioning assignment will allow him to get some game action. Rattie, 23, has four goals and four assists in 27 career NHL games.
