St. Louis Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo underwent surgery on his right hand and will be re-evaluated around Christmas, general manager Doug Armstrong said, according to The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford.
The 28-year-old suffered the injury on Nov. 30 against the Colorado Avalanche and was placed on injured reserve on Dec. 3.
Pietrangelo, much like the rest of his teammates, has gotten off to a slow start offensively, with just four goals and 11 points in 24 games. However, he had posted four points in the previous four games before exiting the Blues' lineup.
The Blues enter Thursday just two points out of last place in the Western Conference.
