NHL: Blues D Marco Scandella (hip) out at least 6 months


Share post:

St. Louis Blues defenseman Marco Scandella will undergo hip surgery on Tuesday and miss at least six months.

The Blues said Scandella was injured in late August while training for the season. The surgery will be to repair his right hip joint, and the team said he’ll be re-evaluated in six months.

Scandella, 32, tallied 14 points (three goals, 11 assists) in 70 games with the Blues last season, his third in St. Louis.

The Montreal native has collected 160 points (48 goals, 112 assists) and 273 penalty minutes in 699 games across his 12-year career with Minnesota (2010-17), Buffalo (2017-20), Montreal (2020) and St. Louis.

He was selected in the second round by the Wild in the 2008 draft.
