The NHL's preseason is in its infancy and the St. Louis Blues already are dealing with two significant injuries in training camp.

Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester will be re-evaluated in three weeks after sustaining a fractured left ankle. The team also announced that forward Zach Sanford is expected to be sidelined five-to-six months after undergoing surgery for a dislocated left shoulder.

Bouwmeester recorded one goal and 14 assists in 81 games last season. The 33-year-old averaged 22:24 of ice time per contest.

Sanford, 22, collected two goals and three assists in 13 games after being acquired in a Feb. 27 trade with the Washington Capitals for defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk.
