Off-Season Injury Notes (Jun 28)

The St. Louis Blues have reported that forward Patrik Berglund has undergone a successful surgery on his shoulder, which he had injured in his off-season training and that the timetable for his return should put him back in December, missing the first two months of the regular season, at least.

This isn't the first major shoulder injury in Berglund's career, as the 29-year old missed the first 40 games of the 2016 season to a similar injury.

Last season, Berglund played in all 82 regular season games for the Blues, finishing with 23 goals and 34 points and that production will be missed early on in the season.  He'll definitely be a solid pick-up mid-season for your hockey pool team, but whatever you do, make a note, so you don't draft him early on.
