Blues star forward Vladimir Tarasenko will miss the next six weeks with a right hand injury suffered in Saturday night’s win over the Predators. Tarasenko scored his 21st goal of the season in the 4-1 win, but will need surgery to repair damage to his hand.

Tarasenko will be re-evaluated after the six weeks and hopefully can rejoin the Blues for the playoffs. The Blues currently sit in first place in points in the NHL with 99 points.
