Sundqvist (knee) will start the 2021-22 campaign on long-term injured reserve, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Sundqvist had already been ruled out of the start of the regular season, but this news confirms the 27-year-old Swede will be forced to miss the Blues' first 10 games of the campaign at a minimum. Once healthy, Sundqvist, who's still recovering from offseason knee surgery, should slot into a bottom-six role for St. Louis.
