Polak to Undergo Surgery on Wrist
ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Wednesday that defenseman Roman Polak will undergo surgery to repair a severed tendon in his right wrist on Thursday, Oct. 28.

The surgery will be performed by Orthopedic Hand Specialist Dr. Martin Boyer of Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Polak suffered the injury in the Blues’ 1-0 overtime win against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Oct. 23.

He will be sidelined indefinitely.

In addition, the Blues have recalled defenseman Nathan Oystrick (Ol-strihk) from the Blues’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, Peoria Rivermen.

In his NHL career, the 6-0, 210-pound defenseman has played in 56 games with both the Thrashers and Anaheim Ducks earning 12 points (four goals, eight assists) and 52 penalty minutes.

The Regina, Saskatoon native was originally drafted by Atlanta in the seventh round, 198th overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
