From Jeremy Rutherford at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Rookie defenseman Erik Johnson will miss the Blues’ home opener tonight with a hairline fracture in his right foot.
Johnson, 19, suffered the injury in the season opener at Phoenix on Oct. 4. An X-ray taken after the game did not reveal the fracture. He played in the Blues’ second game two nights later at Los Angeles and scored the game-winning goal.
“I took a (shot) off the foot in the Phoenix game, and didn’t really notice any pain in the Los Angeles game or any practices until yesterday,” Johnson said this morning.
An X-ray taken Tuesday revealed the hairline fracture.
