The banged-up Blues have lost another forward to injury and added some support.

Sammy Blais will miss out on at least 10 weeks after going through surgical treatment on his right wrist. Blais was injured Tuesday in St. Louis' 3-1 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

With Blais out long term, Alex Steen sidelined with a high ankle sprain until early December and Vladimir Tarasenko expected to miss out on the remainder of the regular season following shoulder surgical treatment, the group on Wednesday signed winger Troy Brouwer to a $750,000 US, one-year offer. Brouwer had been practicing with the Blues on a professional tryout.

Brouwer, 34, was the Blues' choice to sign over Jamie McGinn, who was also brought in for a tryout. A 13-year NHL veteran, Brouwer rejoins the Blues after playing the 2015-16 season in St. Louis.
