Schwartz (lower body) was not on the ice for warmups, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz will miss his second game in a row following the leg/foot injury likely sustained against the Flames this past Thursday. The good news is the team doesn't believe this to be a long-term concern, so a return to the ice appears likely in the near future.

Schwartz (lower body) will not play Saturday versus the Blackhawks, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

This information was relayed from Blues coach Mike Yeo. It appears that the team is taking a cautious approach with Schwartz, as the supposed leg/foot injury is not deemed serious. The power-play winger in his eighth year will be reevaluated ahead of Sunday's home game against the Ducks.

Schwartz is dealing with an injury to his leg/foot, but it isn't a long-term concern, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Still, Blues coach Mike Yeo said the winger is "questionable to doubtful" for Saturday's road game versus the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

It appears as though Schwartz has dodged a serious injury. However, the team could be cautious with the skater who led the Notes with an immaculate 0.95 points-per-game average over 62 games last season. Of course, the biggest knock on Schwartz is his suspect injury history. He prematurely returned from the 2018 World Championship in May due to an upper-body issue, and this is a guy who has had significant ankle problems in the past. Be sure to have a contingency plan in case the 26 year old needs more time to recover than expected.

Schwartz (lower body) is considered "questionable to doubtful" for Saturday's matchup with the Blackhawks, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of the 26-year-old winger's injury remains a mystery, but if he's unable to go against Chicago, Chris Thorburn will likely take his spot in the lineup. The Blues haven't officially ruled Schwartz out yet, but fantasy owners would be wise to have a backup plan in place.

Schwartz (upper body) will be fit to play in Wednesday's preseason road match in Des Moines, Iowa.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz sustained an upper-body injury -- it's believed to have been an issue with his shoulder -- at the World Championship in May, but doctors ultimately determined that surgery wouldn't be necessary. The Blues need Schwartz to stay healthy this season, as he's one of the most potent offensive weapons on the team. Last season, he dialed in 24 goals, 35 assists and a plus-15 rating to complement 11 points on the man advantage.

Schwartz will not require surgery for an upper-body injury suffered during the 2018 IIHF World Championship, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a maximum of two games remaining for Canada, Schwartz may miss the rest of the tournament, but figures to be ready for the start of training camp in the fall. Players sustaining injuries in an international competition is one of every team's biggest fears and is part of the reason the NHL decided not to allow its players to take part in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Fortunately for fans and fantasy owners alike, it appears the winger avoided a more serious issue.

Schwartz sustained an undisclosed injury while facing Russia on Thursday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadian team eked out a 5-4 overtime win over Russia in this quarterfinals matchup, with Schwartz bagging an apple over 12:54 of ice time before departing with injury upon getting drilled into the boards. One of the Blues' prized forwards, Schwartz is sure to be reevaluated ahead of the next round Saturday.

Schwartz racked up 24 goals and 59 points while notching a plus-15 rating in 62 games.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz missed 20 games in the middle of the season due to a broken foot, marking the second time in three years that he faced an extended absence. The 25-year-old winger recorded the highest points-per-game rate on the team and scored at the highest rate since entering the league -- 24 goals on 157 shots (15.3 percent). Still, it's worrisome that Schwartz could be tagged as injury prone as he approaches his seventh NHL season.

Schwartz recorded a power-play goal and an even-strength assist Saturday, but the Blues' 5-2 road loss to the Avalanche bumped St. Louis from playoff contention.

EDGE Analysis

An ankle injury prevented Schwartz from setting a new career high in points, though he still wound up with 24 goals and 35 assists (11 power-play points) through 62 games to finish as the team's most efficient generator of offense. He'll likely be discounted in fantasy drafts due to his trouble staying healthy, but Schwartz could provide a huge return on the investment if he manages to play out a full season for the first time in his career in 2018-19.
