ST. LOUIS (HockeyStL) - An elbow injury recently suffered in practice will cause forward Jaden Schwartz to miss four weeks.

Schwartz was injured when he and Alex Steen became tangled up during practice Thursday.

Head coach Ken Hitchcock does not believe Schwartz will miss many games because the regular season doesn’t begin until October 12, when the Blues visit the rival Blackhawks.

Schwartz only appeared in 33 games in 2015-2016 due to a leg injury.
