ST. LOUIS (KMOX)- Forward Vladimir Sobotka won’t be traveling with the St. Louis Blues to Edmonton and Calgary this weekend.

That’s because the team placed the 26-year-old on injured reserve, Friday, with an upper-body injury.

Sobotka has already missed three games.

The Czech Republic native has appeared in 31 games this season, posting 15 points (five goals and 10 assists) to go along with a league-leading 61.8% win rate on face-offs.
