ST. LOUIS - Blues forward T.J. Oshie was a surprise no-show for practice and the team called it an unexcused absence.

Coach Davis Payne said after Monday's practice that he'd speak with general manager Doug Armstrong regarding proper disciplinary action.

It's likely Oshie will be held out of Tuesday night's home game against the Minnesota Wild. St. Louis suspended centre Patrik Berglund for one game last season after he overslept and missed practice.

Oshie missed 31 games earlier this season with a fractured ankle.
