ST. LOUIS - Vladimir Tarasenko will undergo surgery on his left shoulder Tuesday and will be re-evaluated in five months.

Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong will address the media about the injury on Tuesday at the team's practice facility.

In 10 games this season, Tarasenko had posted three goals and seven assists.
