Blues suffer another setback on defense

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues defenseman Barret Jackman is
expected to miss the rest of the season due to a dislocated left
shoulder.

Jackman, the Calder Trophy winner last season as the NHL's top
rookie, reinjured his shoulder in the first period of a 1-all tie
with Minnesota on Monday. An MRI exam Wednesday revealed the extent
of the injury.

Jackman was first hurt on a check by Todd Bertuzzi of the
Canucks on Oct. 22.

It's the second long-term loss to the Blues' defense this
season. Al MacInnis is out indefinitely with a detached retina and
may retire.
