ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Blues defenseman Jake Walman has tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Wednesday.

The team was hopeful the test was false positive, but after additional testing, he tested positive.

Walman has been vaccinated and will likely be out at least two weeks. The Blues did not reveal whether Walman has received a single vaccine shot or is fully vaccinated.

He missed Monday's game against the Kings after he received his first positive COVID-19 test.

The 25-year-old has two points in 25 games this season.
