Zbynek Michalek heads back to the Coyotes

The Blues weren’t expected to bring back Zbynek Michalek and that became official as the defenseman headed back to the Arizona Coyotes with a two-year, $6.4 million contract. The Blues originally acquired Michalek from the Coyotes prior to the 2014-15 trade deadline in exchange for Maxim Letunov and a conditional third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. […]

Blues give Jori Lehtera a three-year contract extension

While Blues fans wait for Vladimir Tarasenko to receive a new contract, the team rewarded Jori Lehtera with a three-year, $14.1 million extension. Lehtera’s current deal wasn’t going to expire until after the 2015-16 campaign, which means he’s now in the mix through 2018-19.

Blues acquire Konrad Abeltshauser in a trade with San Jose

The Blues have traded a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for German defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser. The trade barely registers on the noteworthy meter and likely won’t factor in the team’s roster for 2015-16. Abeltshauser skated in 50 AHL games in 2014-15 with the Worcester Sharks. Over […]

Rumor suggested Blues were shopping Shattenkirk in the first round

The St. Louis Blues were silent during the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft. The team didn’t have a pick and didn’t make any noise on the trade front. However, there was one extremely weird, random rumor which surfaced from an Edmonton Oilers reporter. Matheson appeared to be throwing out names without any inside information, […]

Jake Allen has now been named to the All-Rookie team twice

Here’s a fun piece of NHL trivia. Jake Allen was named to the league’s All-Rookie team for his work in 2014-15, but remarkably this wasn’t the first time he has received the honor. Allen was also named to the All-Rookie team back in 2012-13. Allen’s first All-Rookie team selection in 2012-13 was due to his […]

Armstrong tells Hitchcock to use Stastny differently

Doug Armstrong, like many Blues fans, isn’t happy with how Ken Hitchcock used Paul Stastny last season. After returning from injury, Stastny mostly saw time on the third line and frequently saw his linemates juggled. Though the Blues made Stastny the highest-paid forward on the team, Hitchcock continued to play him in a limited role. Armstrong has […]

Blues are interested in acquiring a first-round pick

The St. Louis Blues are a team without a first-round pick in the upcoming NHL Draft. The club shipped their pick over to the Buffalo Sabres in the Ryan Miller trade. The Sabres then sent the pick over to the Winnipeg Jets, but the fact of the matter is that the Blues are lacking a […]
