St. Louis Blues forward Ivan Barbashev suffered a left ankle injury during the club's 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday and will be re-evaluated in six weeks, the team announced Friday.

Barbashev tallied two goals and two assists over his previous five games while getting frequent top-line minutes alongside captain Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron. He's amassed six points while averaging 13:23 of ice time over 17 games this season.

The 25-year-old is on the final year of his current deal and becomes a restricted free agent after this season.

St. Louis is dealing with injury troubles. Pivots Robert Thomas, who suffered a broken thumb earlier this month, and Tyler Bozak remain out, while forward Jaden Schwartz and blue-liner Colton Parayko are day-to-day.
