St. Louis Blues defenseman Torey Krug is considered week-to-week because of an upper-body injury, the team announced.
Krug was injured by a slash from Nick Jensen during the second period of the Blues’ 5-2 win against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday. The injury was to his left hand.
“It’s really tough. Valuable player for us,” Blues coach Craig Berube said Thursday. “It is what it is, but it is a tough loss for sure. It didn’t look like much, but obviously it is.”
Krug, 30, has recorded 35 points (eight goals, 27 assists) in 57 games this season. He signed a seven-year, $45.5 million contract with the Blues on Oct. 9.
Krug has 404 points (77 goals, 327 assists) in 631 career games with the Boston Bruins (2011-20) and Blues.
