The St. Louis Blues have dealt with serious injuries to their forward group all season, including a potential season-long absence for top sniper Vladimir Tarasenko. Things don’t seem to be getting any better, as head coach Craig Berube told reporters including Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch that Oskar Sundqvist will be out “a while” and is set to get further testing back in St. Louis. Thomas notes that Sundqvist was seen on crutches with his right foot in a walking boot.

Sundqvist came out of Wednesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning after being hit in the corner by Luke Schenn. The 25-year old has been having an excellent season for the team with eight goals and 12 points in 26 games, while lending his physicality and speed to the penalty kill on a regular basis.

Oilers defenseman Adam Larsson appears ready to return from broken leg

  Oilers defenseman Adam Larsson appears ready to return from broken leg The Oilers will have to make a corresponding move when they activate Larsson, who has been out since the first game of the season with a broken leg. The likely candidates to be sent to Bakersfield of the AHL would be defensemen Caleb Jones or Joel Persson, with Persson being the more likely candidate. The 25-year-old Persson, who signed out of the SHL, could use some time in the AHL to allow the game to slow down for him. He has only appeared in 10 games for the Oilers so far.

Tarasenko, Alex Steen, Sammy Blais and now Sundqvist are all out for the Blues, who will test their depth even further. Unfortunately, after trading Robby Fabbri just before some of these injuries hit, they were forced to look at the free agent market and bring in veteran Troy Brouwer to give the lineup some more experience.

Can this former football star ever get to the game's highest level?Tebow knows failure and how to learn from it. When No. 4 Florida lost to unranked Ole Miss on Sept. 27, 2008, and cost the Gators a shot at an undefeated season, Tebow responded with his iconic “promise” speech, learned from the loss and led his team to a national title that season.
