Alexander Steen C STL 8 Months
Alexander Steen suffered a tear in the back of his thigh and will be sidelined for "at least three weeks," according to Matias Strozyk of Elite Prospects.
The Blues' forward was playing in the Swedish Elite League with Modo and had 14 points and 15 games The exact nature of how he sustained the injury isn't known right now. Obviously, this is the news organizations fear when they see their players leave to play overseas. With the owners and union still in a stalemate, though, it's very possible Steen won't miss any NHL action.
