First it was Erik Johnson getting his season ended by a golf cart. Soon after it was Manny Legace and Ben Bishop. Now TJ Oshie has gone down with a high ankle sprain.
“I was talking to Dr. (Rick) Wright and he told me as far as sports go, ankles are the toughest injuries to put a time frame on,” Blues President John Davidson said Sunday. “We don’t know how long it’s going to be. It’s just a shame because he’s been as good as anybody on our team.”
Great. Now St. Louis can call up.. nobody. Prepetual healthy scratch Yan Stastny will be filling in for Oshie.
Yan. Not Peter. The bad Stastny. Yan. The one who played for like three different organizations in the last four seasons. Yan. Not the guy on the Avalanche. No, his brother. His brother’s name is Yan. The one with nine career points. Yan Stastny. The one that got traded to Boston for Sergei Samsonov with Marty Reasoner and the pick that became Milan Lucic. Yeah, that Stastny. Yan. So that’s two more words: “Yan Stastny.”
