St. Louis defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk left the Blues' game against the Capitals on Sunday because of a lower-body injury.

The team announced between periods that Shattenkirk wouldn't return. After the game, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Shattenkirk will be evaluated Monday.
The All-Star defenseman began play tied for second on the team in scoring with 40 points.
