ST. PAUL, MN - Blues forward T.J. Oshie was hit high by Minnesota Wild forward Mike Rupp with 9:30 left in second period on Thursday.
Oshie was slow to get up and did not return to the game. Rupp was given a 10-minute match penalty for intent to injure. On Friday, the NHL Department of Player Safety gave Rupp a four-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head.
"Obviously Osh is out. He's like everything else at this time of year, he's day-to-day," Hitchcock said after the game. "But certainly a tough hit to take right now."
