Kevin Shattenkirk admitted that it's been tough for the Blues to maintain momentum this season.
"We're a little beaten up," Shattenkirk said. "It's seems like we're just clawing, trying to get back healthy again physically. And mentally we've played a lot of games so far this year. We've had some really tough stretches, but we're able to weather the storm and make sure that we came out of it in a good position." The offensive blueliner didn't do much scoring in January with just two goals and one assist in 12 matches. Feb 2 - 12:05 PM

Expect interest in Kevin Shattenkirk to heat up, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman says that if St. Louis was able to land Ryan Johansen, Shattenkirk was going to Columbus. Teams will check in now that they know the defenseman was in play. Shattenkirk has a year left with a $4.225 million cap hit. He has eight goals and 25 points in 34 games.

Welcome to the Trade Rumor Mill, Kevin Shattenkirk.

In an insider-only piece, Craig Custance noted that the offensively gifted defender's name "is in play on the trade front." Very descriptive, absolutely, but also not without reason. The Blues are slim on cap space, even with his cheap $4.25M cap hit on the books through next season. With Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Piertrangelo slated to ding the cap at $11M combined the next three seasons, and captain David Backes yet to re-sign, the 27-year-old Shattenkirk may be the odd man out. As one of the game's most consistent scorers from the blue line, he'll certainly fetch an enticing package from any team who hasn't yet realized players stop improving long before they turn 30.
Jan 8 - 8:41 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk continued his scoring ways, picking up his seventh goal of the season in Thursday's 3-1 loss to Minnesota.

Shattenkirk had another quality game with four shots and two takeaways in over 25 minutes of work, and the game didn't even go into overtime. He now has 24 points in 30 games this season, and it would tough to ask from anything more from a blue liner.

The return of Kevin Shattenkirk is expected to provide a spark to St. Louis' power play.

"As we wait for these guys to come back, we're going to need the power play," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "If we're going to win road games, power play is going to have to come through for us like it did the last two games." Shattenkirk didn't record a point in his first game back on Saturday, but he did see a team-high 2:29 of ice time on the man advantage. Hitchcock said the offensive blueliner will get more time on the penalty kill and at even strength as he gets his legs back.

Kevin Shattenkirk (groin) will play in Saturday's game against Nashville.

"It's a good feeling," Shattenkirk said. "I think it's a little anxiousness, and more than anything it's just nice to kind of be back in the routine of a game day and not have to worry about whether you're going to be feeling good on the ice or whether the injury is going to creep back up again. I'm pretty confident in what I've been doing for the last few weeks that helped me strengthen everything and be ready to play a game tonight." He's been out since Oct. 13.

The St. Louis Blues have officially activated Kevin Shattenkirk (groin).

Shattenkirk is expected to play on Saturday for the first time since Oct. 13. He's one of the league's top defensemen in terms of offensive production, so this is big news for fantasy owners as well as the Blues. As previously reported, defenseman Chris Butler has been sent to the minors.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 12:30:00 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk (groin) might be available for Saturday's game.

That's based on the fact that St. Louis has already returned defenseman Chris Butler to the minors. That being said, there's enough time between now and St. Louis' next game that the Blues will be able to call Butler or someone else up before then if Shattenkirk isn't actually ready. Still, it's not unreasonable to see this news and get encouraged.

Kevin Shattenkirk (groin) isn't ready to play Wednesday.

He has been practicing regularly, but it's still unclear when he will be able to return from a nagging groin injury. Shattenkirk will miss his 10th straight game.
