The St. Louis Blues revealed during season-ending media sessions that 26-year old sniper Vladimir Tarasenko has a dislocated shoulder and was scheduled for surgery on Wednesday.

According to NHL.com, Tarasenko, who suffered the dislocated shoulder during the final game of the season, underwent successful surgery.

“(With surgery) it will be an injury a lot like (Patrik) Berglund had, a lot like (Zach) Sanford had. Unfortunately, we have time on our side to heal that,” Armstrong said. “Shoulder surgeries are usually four to six months. That will get us right to the start of training camp or certainly by the start of the season.”

“When (the pain) didn’t go away (after) 10-15 seconds, you know it was something serious,” Tarasenko said Tuesday. “I’m really upset it happened in the most important game of the year, but it was a bad feeling to be in the locker room while the guys fought for a (playoff) spot.”

Tarasenko led the Blues in goals with 33, and was 2nd in points scored with 66.
