ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Blues Jerseys China forward Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey China will not travel with the team for weekend games at Boston and Detroit after suffering an unspecified upper-body injury in a win over Los Angeles.
General manager Doug Armstrong said Friday that Tarasenko will be reevaluated when the team returns following Sunday’s game against the Red Wings.

“He’s an important leader for us, and it’s tough to see him go down,” goalie Jordan Binnington Jersey China said after the game. “I think our group did a good job of responding and picking each other up. “
