ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Blues forward Zach Sanford will undergo surgery and miss 5-6 months of action after dislocating his left shoulder during training camp.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong announced the injury on Tuesday. He also said defenseman Jay Bouwmeester has a left ankle fracture and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

The 22-year-old Sanford joined St. Louis in February after a trade with Washington. The forward had two goals and three assists in 13 regular season appearances for the Blues, and he also played in four playoff games.

Bouwmeester, who is 33, is entering his sixth season for St. Louis and had 14 assists and a goal last season.

The Blues open their season at Pittsburgh on Oct. 4.
