ST. LOUIS (AP) - The NHL players aren't the only ones out of work as a result of the lockout.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/RfvK02 ) reports that the St. Louis Blues have laid off some of its front-office workers. The exact number wasn't announced, but the team says it is just under 20.
The remaining 75 employees took pay cuts or have switched to four-day work weeks.
Blues chief operating officer Bruce Affleck says some of the layoffs will be permanent - a decision made by the team's new owners.
