ST. LOUIS - T.J. Oshie, one of the St. Louis Blues' top forwards, will be out indefinitely with a broken left ankle.

General manager Doug Armstrong says he will be evaluated again in three months. Oshie had surgery on the ankle Thursday.

Oshie was injured in an 8-1 loss Wednesday night at Columbus when he and another player fell to the ice and his leg got caught. Oshie leads the Blues with 10 points, scoring one goal.

"He certainly started out having a good season and he's certainly going to be missed," Armstrong said. "The depth of our team is going to be tested right now. This is a great opportunity for some players, not only on our roster but others to play a bigger role."

The Blues recalled forward Nick Drazenovic and Chris Porter From Peoria, Ill., of the AHL in time for Thursday night's game against Nashville. Drazenovic leads Peoria with six goals.
