(Feb. 8, 2016) – St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has placed defenseman Alex Pietrangelo on Injured Reserve (IR) after he suffered a right knee injury in the Blues’ 4-1 win over Minnesota last Saturday.  Pietrangelo will be re-evaluated in three weeks.
