Joakim Lindstrom will be a healthy scratch Monday against Colorado.

Lindstrom had suited up in the last two Blues games but will give way to Dmitrij Jaskin on Monday evening. It's been a tough year for the 31-year-old Swede as he has just three goals and three assists in 30 games played to go along with a minus five rating.

Joakim Lindstrom was back in for St. Louis on Thursday.

He has had a tough time cracking the lineup lately. Lindstrom had been a healthy scratch for the previous six games and for eight of nine contests. Despite his lack of playing time, he has no intention of going back to Sweden. "I'm definitely committed here," Lindstrom said. "I haven't had any thoughts of those. I'm here for the long haul, do whatever it takes to contribute to the team, whether it's playing 25 minutes or five minutes or whatever it takes to help the team." He has three goals and three assists in 29 games this campaign, while averaging 11:15 of ice time per match.
Jan 16 - 2:57 PM

Joakim Lindstrom has been a healthy scratch for six of the Blues' last seven games.

He also watched eight of the past 11 matches from the press box. "The situation is what it is," Lindstrom said Thursday. "I'm part of the team. I try to stay positive and confident and work as hard as I can and wait for my chance." St. Louis call-up Dmitrij Jaskin has passed him on the depth chart and has fit in nicely on the third line.

Joakim Lindstrom will be back in the St. Louis lineup Saturday night against Colorado.

He missed Thursday's contest with a bacterial infection that is going through the Blues' dressing room. If you need Lindstrom, feel free to activate him.

Joakim Lindstrom missed Thursday's game because he's still battling a bacterial infection.

The illness has been hard for the Blues to shake, as it continues to linger through their locker room. Consider him day-to-day. Lindstrom has one goal in eight games this season.

Look for Joakim Lindstrom to get the first chance to play with Paul Stastny and Alexander Steen.

He has a history with coach Ken Hitchcock in Columbus who believes he might mesh well with the newly-acquired Stastny and last season's breakout player, Steen. Needless to say, if Lindstrom can keep this gig, he will be draft worthy in most hockey pools.

Newly-signed forward Joakim Lindstrom has some ties to the St. Louis Blues.

He played under current Blues bench boss Ken Hitchcock in Columbus and he is friends with Alexander Steen. "So he's got some offensive ability," GM Doug Armstrong said. "I think we're a team that can provide him with an opportunity and he certainly adds to our skill and our depth. Again, I don't want to oversell, but it's a player that has some skill and we'll see how he can fit into our lineup." It's unclear if he'll be able to secure a roster spot on a very deep St. Louis team.

Joakim Lindstrom has signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the St. Louis Blues.

Lindstrom is returning to the NHL after two seasons in Sweden. He had 63 points and 72 penalty minutes in 55 games with Skelleftea AIK in 2013-14. The 30-year-old also has 15 goals and 33 points in 97 career NHL contests. "He's a player that's been to North America, gone back and really reinvented his game," Blues GM Doug Armstrong said. "He came over probably too young and went back (to Sweden). He wants to come back (to the NHL). I know there were a few teams that were trying to get him to come back to North America."

Joakim Lindstrom scored twice for Skelleftea in a 3-1 win over Modo on Tuesday.

He has 12 markers and 21 assists in 25 games this campaign in the Swedish Elite League. Lindstrom split the 2011-12 season with Colorado and Elitserien squad Skelleftea.

The Avalanche placed forward Joakim Lindstrom on waivers today.

Lindstrom was signed as a free agent in June after spending the last two seasons in Russia (KHL) and his native Sweden. Colorado coach Joe Sacco gave the forward, who will turn 28 on Dec. 5, plenty of chances. Lindstrom played on the top two lines and was used on the point with the man advantage. However, in 16 games, he could only muster 2-3-5 while going minus-9. It was Lindstrom’s fifth shot at the NHL having played parts of four seasons with Columbus and Phoenix prior to going overseas after the 2008-09 campaign.
