Jaden Schwartz had four assists for Team Canada during the IIHF World
Championship but will miss rest of tournament with shoulder injury.
Schwartz was injured during the third period of a 5-4 overtime victory over Russia in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
Schwartz, who had an assist in the game, had four assists and was a plus-6 in eight games during the tournament.
He was among four Blues (Brayden Schenn, Joel Edmundson and Colton Parayko) playing on the team. Originally, defenseman Vince Dunn was supposed to play as well but was ruled out with an upper-body injury of his own.
Edmundson missed Canada's opener, a 5-4 shootout loss to the United States, with a groin injury but has since played in the past seven games.
Schwartz played in 62 games for the Blues during the 2017-18 season and recorded 59 points (24 goals, 35 assists); he missed 20 games with a fractured right ankle blocking a shot on Dec. 9 against the Detroit Red Wings.
