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.
