The banged-up Blues have recalled winger Ty Rattie and defenseman Chris Butler from AHL Chicago.

The two “emergency” recalls come after St. Louis -- already without Paul Stastny, Jay Bouwmeester and Jake Allen -- suffered a couple of new injuries Saturday against the Kings. Defenseman Carl Gunnarsson left the game with an undisclosed injury and Magnus Paajarvi left after this hit by Brayden McNabb:

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock is expected to provide an injury update later today.

Rattie, 22, leads the Wolves in scoring with nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points.

The Blues host New Jersey tomorrow.
