Kevin Shattenkirk's three assists helped the Blues dominate the Avalanche 5-1 on Sunday evening.

The 27-year-old now has three goals and 10 points through 13 games this season. He's well on-pace to meet his typical output of 40+ points this season, and might even threaten the 50-point plateau with the way he's been playing early on.
Nov 6 - 8:58 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk has scored three goals for the Blues this season.

That puts him tied for second in the league behind only Arizona's Oliver Ekman-Larsson so far. It's a big year for Shattenkirk, as he's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He should continue to be a solid fantasy option in 2016-17.

Kevin Shattenkirk scored a goal in Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Henrik Zetterberg scored the game-winner in the eighth round of the shootout to give Detroit the win. Shattenkirk has three goals, three assists and a minus-4 rating in eight games this season. He's averaging 20:31 of ice time per game so far.

Shattenkirk's power play goal at the 4:52 mark of the second period tied the game at one. He helped set up power play goals by Vladimir Tarasenko and Paul Stastny. The 27-year-old has extra motivation to have a huge season in 2016-17 because he'll be a free agent at the end of the year.

Expect the Blues defense to be a little more aggressive this season.

"It’s more aggressive as defensemen," defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said of his team's style of play. "We’re kind of pushing up the ice more, which for me, I love. It keeps you in the offensive play more, it keeps you thinking that way, and it turns more pucks over in the neutral zone, which leads to transition game and more odd-man rushes that you can be a part of. In that respect, it definitely plays into my game. And I’m always working on my defensive zone coverage."
Oct 8 - 8:57 AM

The Blues are changing their system this season and mobile blueliners like Kevin Shattenkirk, Colton Parayko and Alex Pietrangelo could be the beneficiaries.

St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock is going to let his blueliners jump up into the play more than they have in the past. This aggresive system in the netural zone could result in more even-strength points for the likes of Shattenkirk, Parayko and Pietrangelo. Just something to keep in mind on draft day.

Kevin Shattenkirk understands that the trade rumors probably won't go away, but he is prepared to play for the Blues in 2016-17.

"This is something that I think is going to go on all year, it's always a story that people are going to run with," Shattenkirk said. "But for me, I can only control what I do on the ice and if I’m giving 100 percent out there, whatever happens, happens. I can control it to a certain point, but if something is going to go down, it's going to go down." He thought he was going to get moved at the NHL Draft this past June, but that didn't happen. Shattenkirk knows this could be his last season with the Blues, as he can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

The price to acquire Kevin Shattenkirk is very high, according to Bruins GM Don Sweeney.

"The acquisition cost was extremely high, and rightfully so because they are difficult players to have and develop, and when you have them, you might as well maximize the asset in return," Sweeney said Friday night after the first round of the draft. The Oilers have been unwilling to meet the asking price as well. Blues GM Doug Armstrong won't give Shattenkirk away, so it wouldn't be surprising if the offensive defender is with St. Louis at the start of 2016-17.

Kevin Shattenkirk is reportedly attracting plenty of interest in the trade market.

Boston and Edmonton have expressed interest in the Blues offensive defender, according to sources. The same source said that Philadelphia is expected to be looking at Shattenkirk as well. He is eligible for unrestricted free agency after the 2015-16 season and St. Louis is comfortable with entering the year with him on the roster if a trade doesn't materialize.
Jun 21 - 2:38 PM

Blues GM Doug Armstrong expects Kevin Shattenkirk to be with the team come September.

However, that doesn't mean that Shattenkirk definitely won't be traded. "It's a business decision, and Shatty's going to have to make one and we're going to have to make one," said Armstrong. "But he's a helluva a hockey player and he's a big part of our team." Shattenkirk has one year remaining on his contract and then he can become an unrestricted free agent.
Jun 1 - 3:59 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk knows the trade rumors probably won't go away, but he hopes to stay with the St. Louis Blues.

"It was a wild year with all the rumors going on, and it might plant the seed of doubt in your head," Shattenkirk said. "But that's not my decision. I'm happy to be coming back here next year. I have a year left and this is where I want to be next year. That's out of my hands unfortunately." Shattenkirk's four-year contract that comes with a salary-cap hit of $4.25 million will be completed after the 2016-17 season.
May 28 - 5:13 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk and the Blues are finding out quickly that the Sharks are a tough team to play against.

"They're a frustrating team to play against," Shattenkirk said. "They check you hard, they're very disciplined and their structure can frustrate you. I think that's what we do well, too, so we have to make sure that we get on the other side of that." The Sharks have outplayed the Blues in the first two games of the Western Conference Final, but the series is tied 1-1. Shattenkirk had an assist in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final and he has 11 points in 14 playoff matches.
