Blues' Leopold out two months

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - The St. Louis Blues announced Monday that defenseman Jordan Leopold will undergo surgery during the week to repair tendon damage in his right hand.

Leopold was injured during Thursday's 3-2 victory over Calgary. The veteran blueliner is expected to be sidelined a minimum of eight weeks before being reevaluated.

The Blues re-signed Leopold, acquired in a trade with Buffalo last March, to a two-year contract in July. The 33-year-old had recorded his only two points in 13 outings this season during the Calgary game, contributing a pair of assists to the victory.
