I received a couple of phone calls earlier this week saying that Blues defenseman Eric Brewer may be out for the 2009-10 season, and that his sciatic nerve issue could be career threatening.

That much has been speculated in recent months, but neither the Blues nor Brewer have confirmed or even suggested that he could miss the entire season.

I spoke with Blues President John Davidson last night, and Davidson said that the rumor was not true. Davidson said that he spoke with Brewer yesterday and that Brewer was continuing to make progress and everyone was still hopeful he could play this season.
