NHL: Blues D Scott Perunovich (shoulder) out 6 months
St. Louis Blues second-year defenseman Scott Perunovich will undergo surgery to repair a fractured shoulder and miss at least six months.
The club announced Tuesday that he will have the surgery Thursday and will be re-evaluated in six months.
Perunovich, 24, was hurt during a preseason game against Chicago on Sept. 27.
He played in just 19 regular-season games last season after surgery to repair a torn labrum. He returned for the playoffs and had four assists in seven games.
The Blues selected Perunovich in the second round of the 2018 draft.
