Top Blues News

  • Blues' Robert Thomas: Late scratch

    Thomas (illness) was a late scratch for Thursday's game versus the Red Wings.

    Thomas will have to miss at least one game while sick. Logan Brown entered the lineup in his place, while Brayden Schenn should see top-six minutes.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Gets starting nod versus Wings

    Hofer will be between the pipes on the road against Detroit on Thursday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

    Hofer has yet to suffer a regulation defeat since being called up to the main roster, posting a 2-0-1 record and 1.32 GAA in three straight starts. At this point, the 22-year-old backstop figures to continue seeing the majority of the workload down the stretch in order to give team brass a chance to evaluate him and further his long-term development. With a back-to-back against Anaheim and Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, Jordan Binnington should get back in the crease for one of those two matchups.

  • Blues' Torey Krug: Sitting out Thursday

    Krug will stay back in St. Louis ahead of Thursday's road trip to Detroit following the birth of his child, Lou Korac of reports.

    While Krug won't be with the team Thursday, he is expected to link up with the club in California for matchups versus Anaheim and Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. With Krug unavailable, Calle Rosen will step into the third pairing while Justin Faulk figures to move up to the No. 1 power-play unit. For his part, Krug has just 28 points in 52 games this season and almost certainly won't reach the 40-point threshold, a mark he has previously hit in six of the last seven campaigns.

  • Blues' Marco Scandella: Scores first of season

    Scandella scored a goal on two shots in the Blues' 3-2 shootout loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.

    Scandella gave the Blues a 2-1 lead in the first period off a shot from the point that beat Magnus Hellberg. This goal was his first marker and second point in just 14 games this year. He should continue to play in the Blues' top-four defensive corps moving forward.

  • Blues' Robert Bortuzzo: Scores goal in shootout loss

    Bortuzzo scored a goal on one shot in the Blues' 3-2 shootout loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.

    Bortuzzo opened the scoring Tuesday on a nice move in front of Magnus Hellberg. This goal snaps a five-game point drought for the defenseman and is his first goal since Dec. 31 versus Minnesota. On the season, Bortuzzo has two goals and three points in 40 games.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Allows two in shootout loss

    Hofer stopped 28 of 30 shots in the Blues' 3-2 shootout loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.

    Hofer started off the contest rocky, allowing two goals in the first period, but shut the door on the Red Wings the rest of the way. He was unable to pick up the win, however, getting beat by Lucas Raymond in the shootout. This outing snapped a two-game winning streak for the Canadian goaltender. Hofer will likely be in a time-share with Jordan Binnington for the rest of the season.

  • Blues' Jake Neighbours: Activated from IR

    Neighbours (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday ahead of his return to the lineup against Detroit, Chris Pinkert of the Blues' official site reports.

    Neighbours, who has been out of action since Feb. 19, has generated eight points, 37 shots on goal and 33 hits in 30 NHL contests this campaign. He is projected to play alongside Logan Brown and Nathan Walker on the fourth line.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: First goalie off Tuesday

    Hofer was the first goalie to leave the ice Tuesday, Lou Korac of reports, indicating he'll defend the home cage versus Detroit.

    Hofer was called up from the minors after Jordan Binnington was hit with a two-game suspension. In his two NHL appearances this season, the 22-year-old Hofer has secured a pair of wins while giving up just two goals on 67 shots (.970 save percentage). As long as Hofer continues to play at this level, he may find himself cemented in the starting crease for the Blues.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Two points including GWG

    Kapanen scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Jets.

    The 26-year-old is skating in a top-six role with St. Louis and is taking advantage -- Kapanen has found the back of the net in two straight games, and both of them have been game-winners. In 10 contests since joining the Blues he's recorded four goals and six points, and he's also on the second power-play unit. Kapanen has never been a consistent fantasy producer, but he could have value in deeper formats down the stretch.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Gets win but not shutout Sunday

    Hofer turned aside all 33 shots he faced in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Jets.

    He would have gotten a shutout in his fourth career NHL appearance, but Hofer left the ice briefly in the second period to get his skate checked out and Thomas Greiss made one save in his absence. It was still a stellar performance for Hofer, who has won two straight starts since being called up Thursday while stopping 65 of 67 shots. Jordan Binnington's suspension is now up, but the fact that the rebuilding Blues gave both starts to Hofer rather than Greiss in his absence suggests the youngster may not immediately be headed back to AHL Springfield. With Greiss headed for free agency in the offseason, Hofer could get a longer look over the final weeks of the regular season.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Starting Sunday

    Hofer will defend the home goal versus Winnipeg on Sunday, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Hofer was outstanding Friday in his season debut, stopping 32 shots in a 5-2 win over Washington. He has spent most of the season with AHL Springfield, going 22-14-4 with a 2.50 GAA and .920 save percentage. Hofer is currently replacing the suspended Jordan Binnington, who will be eligible to return Tuesday in Detroit. Should Hofer perform well against his hometown Jets team, he could earn more playing time even after Binnington's return. Winnipeg is averaging 3.06 goals per contest.

  • Blues' Nikita Alexandrov: Assigned to AHL Springfield

    Alexandrov was assigned to AHL Springfield on Saturday.

    Alexandrov was a healthy scratch in Friday's 5-2 win over Washington. He has supplied seven points, 28 shots on goal and 28 hits across 28 outings with the Blues this season.

  • Blues' Tyler Tucker: Returned to AHL

    Tucker was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Saturday.

    Tucker had a goal and three assists in 24 games before he was sent back to the AHL. The defenseman had an assist Wednesday but was a healthy scratch Friday.
