St. Louis, MO ( – The St. Louis Blues have placed forward
Alexander Steen on injured reserve due to a concussion.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said Steen’s injury was likely to have
occurred as a result of several hits in recent games. No timetable has been
set for his return.

Steen has 24 goals and 14 assists in 35 games this season. The 24 goals are
tied for his career high and trail only Washington’s Alex Ovechkin for tops in
the NHL.
