ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues defenseman Eric Brewer was added to the injured reserve list for an estimated four to eight weeks, the club said Thursday.

Brewer, 26, was injured during a hit late in the first period during Wednesday's 2-0 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets on the road.

Team physician Dr. Rick Wright found Brewer had a separation of the AC joint in his right shoulder, the Blues said.

Brewer, 6-3, 220 pounds, has played in all 18 games this season. He's had 4 goals and 2 assists.
