Shattenkirk (abdomen) has skated that last couple of day; still no timetable for his return.
Shattenkirk has skated for a few days, including a 30-minute session this morning. So he is making progress, but he remains without a timetable. The Blues have gone 6-4-0 while averaging 2.60 goals per game without Shattenkirk, so they are definitely hoping for a speedy recovery. As he continues to skate, the Blues will start to get a better idea of how much longer he will be sidelined.
Shattenkirk will undergo abdominal surgery and is listed as week-to-week.
Shattenkirk will have the procedure in the next seven to 10 days and be listed as week-to-week following its completion. He eads all defensemen with 32 assists and ranks second with 40 points overall through 49 games this season. Expect him to miss at least two weeks, but with the week-to-week tag, there will not be daily updates on his status.
Shattenkirk (flu) rode the bike, didn't skate but looks good to go Wednesday.
Shattenkirk missed Monday's win over the WIld because of the flu but should be in the lineup tomorrow vs. Colorado. He has been great this season recording one goal and 15 assists with a plus-7 rating in 22 games. In his first game vs. his former team this season he had one assist with one shot on goal in 18:50 TOI.
It appears Shattenkirk (illness) will be a game-time decision.
Shattenkirk missed the Blues' morning skate today because he is sick. If he is unable to go Carlo Colaiacovo would make his season debut. Shattenkirk has one goal and 15 assists in 22 games. His 16 points has him tied for ninth amongst NHL defensemen.
