Paul Stastny, the 29-year old veteran, was off to a good start this season with one goal and four assists in five games. This is a big loss for the St. Louis Blues.
Scott Gomez has stepped up to take a larger role now that Robby Fabbri and Paul Stastny are out. He will need to keep doing so if the St. Louis Blues are to remain atop the Central Division.
