Blues release Paul Bissonnette from tryout

Paul Bissonnette has been released from his tryout with the Blues. During his brief time with St. Louis, Biz didn’t make a strong enough of an impression to land a permanent spot with the team. He’s also dealing with a pulled groin, but his ailment didn’t factor in the decision. It was always pretty surprising […]

Carl Gunnarsson

Carl Gunnarsson won’t be ready for season opener

Carl Gunnarsson is still recovering from hip surgery he had at the end of last season and as a result won’t be ready to go for the season opener.

Nate Prosser

Wild claim Nate Prosser from the Blues

The St. Louis Blues tried to send Nate Prosser through waivers, but the Minnesota Wild stepped in and claimed the defenseman.

Hitchcock calls preseason loss a “good wake-up call”

The St. Louis Blues haven’t exactly been very impressive in the preseason. In fact, they’ve been pretty bad. Most of that can be assigned to the fact that 1) the team is using young players who won’t be starters to see what they’re made of, 2) it’s the preseason, 3) everyone is a bit rusty […]
