Per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Jim Thomas, St. Louis Blues forward Brayden Schenn was unavailable for the Winter Classic Saturday night in Minneapolis. He didn’t take warmups.

Schenn has been day-to-day with an upper-body injury since the middle of December, but many were hopeful he could return in time for the biggest outdoor game of the year.

His absence is compensated for by the return of other key Blues. Pavel Buchnevich and Ivan Barbashev are back in the lineup and will be counted on to play larger roles Saturday night.

Schenn has struggled to stay healthy this season. Through just 19 games, he still has 10 points.

Without Schenn, the Blues beat the Wild, 6-4, in the Winter Classic.
