St. Louis Blues forward Robert Thomas has undergone successful wrist surgery, the team announced Monday.

The procedure was required to repair a tendon in his left wrist, which he injured in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks.

The rookie missed most of the Stanley Cup Final, appearing in just two games versus the Boston Bruins. The team did not indicate a specific recovery timeline for Thomas, but said he will undergo a full evaluation ahead of training camp.

In 70 regular season games with the Blues in 2018-19, Thomas registered nine goals and 33 points. He added a goal and five helpers in 21 playoff games to help the Blues claim the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.
