Blues Forward Has Surgery

Alexei Toropchenko is likely to miss the beginning of the 2022-23 campaign for the Blues, as he has had shoulder surgery.

This is tough news to hear because Toropchenko was heading into next season with the expectation of being in St. Louis' bottom six. In 28 games this season for the team, the 6-foot-6 winger scored two goals. He also played in 12 playoff games, where he had two assists.

Here's to hoping that Toropchenko has a speedy recovery and can be ready for the start of the season, but the latter is doubtful.
