Jay Bouwmeester’s injury hasn’t attracted much coverage ever since he suffered an “upper-body” injury against the San Jose Sharks. The St. Louis Blues ran a brief story on their website on March 25th stating he would miss at least two games, but there hasn’t been any additional coverage since then. Meanwhile, the national outlets (and […]
Vladimir Sobotka might be back in a St. Louis Blues uniform next season. A report from Pierre LeBrun suggests that Sobotka’s time in the KHL may end this summer and he’d return to the Blues in time for 2016-17. Via The Hockey News: According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, Sobotka has a one-month window each June […]
It took 60 games, but Joel Edmundson finally scored his first NHL goal. The goal came in the third period and gave the Blues a commanding 4-0 lead over the Canucks. Edmundson’s teammates were quick to mob the rookie on the bench:
The news of Brian Elliott returning to the St. Louis net was widely circulated over a day before the team’s game against the Vancouver Canucks. Apparently no one told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) about Elliott’s return or maybe they were hoping to see Jake Allen. That image is just a bit too perfect. Elliott’s […]
Brian Elliott has been activated off of the IR and is expected to start on Saturday against the Canucks after missing 10 games with a lower-body injury. Elliott’s return comes at a great time as the Blues have stumbled in their last two games and Jake Allen looks like he needs a rest. The timing […]
The Blues have given Carl Gunnarsson a three-year, $8.7 million extension which will keep the defenseman with the team through the 2018-19 season. Gunnarsson’s extension comes at an average cap hit of $2.9 million, which is actually a discount compared to his current $3.15 million cap hit. The announcement of his new extension came at […]
The best part of the Blues’ announcement that the 2017 Winter Classic would be held in Busch Stadium against the Chicago Blackhawks was this incredible video connecting the history of the St. Louis Cardinals to the great game of hockey. Awesome video and a great way to market the event in St. Louis.
The NHL is pretty bad at keeping secrets. Reports of the Blues hosting the 2017 Winter Classic at Busch Stadium slipped out weeks ago. Word spread, and yet the NHL kept their lips closed on the topic despite more and more outlets running the story. Finally, prior to the Blackhawks and Blues battling at Scottrade, […]
Nino Niederreiter’s insane pass to Jason Pominville probably should have resulted in a goal for the Wild. Niederreiter’s spinning, no-look pass managed to get through traffic and find an open Pominville who appeared to have a completely open look. Jake Allen had other plans and managed to slide over and make an incredible save. That’s filthy. Which […]
Steve Ott might be the most polarizing skater on the St. Louis Blues. Some fans love him while others … not so much. Ott has been sidelined since December 5th after doing the splits into the boards which later required surgeries on both hamstrings. Ott’s initial timeline was three months, but the Blues appear to […]
Preliminary World Cup of Hockey rosters were announced and at least three members of the St. Louis Blues will be competing. Alexander Steen was named to team Sweden, Jori Lehtera was named to team Finland and Vladimir Tarasenko will compete for Russia. Only 16 roster spots were named for each competing team, meaning that it’s […]
Ty Rattie has been on a decent run of late, scoring four goals in his past eight games. His play during this run hasn’t been outstanding, but he’s been showing signs of growing and it’s impossible to ignore the goals which have been few and far between for the rest of the St. Louis roster. […]
Predictably, the Blues were quiet on deadline day. The day in itself was pretty uneventful, as contenders loaded up on talent in the days heading into the actual final day of trades. The Blues stood where they were, their lone trade involving Anders Nilsson occurring days earlier. If the Blues’ lack of action was frustrating, the […]
The Blues rattled off five goals against a depleted Hurricanes roster and the best came from young Robby Fabbri. Fabbri’s speed allowed him to get behind the ‘Canes defense, but his hands deserve all the praise for completely fooling goaltender Cam Ward. Filthy.
The Blues made a rather insignificant, potentially unneccessary trade on Saturday morning by acquiring goaltender Anders Nilsson from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goaltender Niklas Lundstrom and a 2016 fifth-round draft pick. The trade was made by the Blues for one simple reason: NHL experience. Nilsson has NHL experience while the team’s current backup options behind […]
