ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A big blow has been dealt to the St. Louis Blues and the Czech Republic’s Olympic team.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong says forward Vladimir Sobotka is going on the injured reserve list with a left leg injury.

Sobotka will miss the Olympics and be re-evaluated in four weeks.

He was injured late in Friday night’s game at Carolina.

The 26-year-old has dressed in 46 games, posting 25 points (seven goals, 18 assists) and 46 penalty minutes while leading the National Hockey League (NHL) with a 60.9% success rate on faceoffs this season.

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound forward is currently in his seventh NHL season and fourth with the Blues.
