Canada's Schwartz out for rest of WJC tournament with broken ankle

The St. Louis Blues’ first round draft pick in 2010, Jaden Schwartz, will miss the remainder of the 2011 World Junior Championship and six weeks total after suffering a fractured left ankle in Team Canada’s victory over the Czech Republic on Dec. 28.

Schwartz, 18, tallied a goal and two assists in two appearances for Team Canada at this year’s tournament. Currently in his freshman season at Colorado College, the 5-foot-10, 182-pound forward leads the NCAA in points per game (1.53) among rookies with 11 goals and 15 assists in 17 games.

Canada’s final game of the preliminary round is on Dec. 31 against Sweden.
