Although the Blues are listing Kevin Shattenkirk as week-to-week due to an abdominal injury, the St. Louis rearguard will likley be out a couple of months.

He is scheduled to undergo surgery shortly and given the recovery time of others who have had a similar surgery (Jared Boll, Mark Letestu, Brandon Dubinsky), Shattenkirk should really be listed as month-to-month as opposed to week-to-week. The recovery from surgery could take 4-5 weeks and the rehab could take another 3-4 weeks. Both Letestu and Dubinksy missed two months. This is not good news for Shattenkirk owners.

Kevin Shattenkirk says that last year’s first round playoff loss to the Chicago Blackhawks was a wakeup call for the Blues.

"I think last year really woke us all up as players," said Shattenkirk. "When we lost to Chicago, we felt like it was really on our shoulders. Everything was put into place for us to do well and to succeed, and we didn’t perform as players. We didn’t get it done." With a strong young core and the addition of Paul Stastny, the Blues should have another strong season ahead of them.
