Latest re: Blues' blue line
By Victoria Matiash
Defenseman Jeff Woywitka may not be the biggest fan of the most recent move made by the St. Louis Blues. As discussed by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the signing of defenseman Colin White could put Woywitka at risk of losing his projected roster spot. The Blues gave White a tryout contract Tuesday.
“He’s another piece to the puzzle,” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said.
White could be in direct competition with Woywitka for the role of No. 7 defenseman. Unless the Blues go with eight blueliners -- a real possibility -- one of the two imposing, stay-at-home D-men will likely be the odd-man out.
