Brett Sterling impressed the Blues in his season debut on Wednesday, so he'll be back in the lineup Friday.

"I like his energy, he goes to the net," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He could have scored three goals. Right now he gives us jump where we need it back there." Sterling might get some playing time with the man advantage, but he's also expected to be on the fourth line. With that in mind, we can't recommend picking him up just yet.

The St. Louis Blues promoted Brett Sterling from the AHL on Nov. 20.

Sterling is a high-scoring forward in the AHL, with 22 points in 18 minor league games. Size could be his biggest issue, though; he's listed at just 5-foot-7 and typically those measurements are generous. Still, Sterling hasn't ever gotten a shot with Ken Hitchcock behind the wheel before, so you never know. He's marginal from a fantasy perspective at best, though.

The Blues sent twelve players, including Brett Sterling, to Peoria of the AHL.

T.J. Hensick, Jay Barriball, Kyle Hagel, Anthony Nigro and Anthony Peluso; defensemen Mark Cundari, Cade Fairchild, Brett Ponich and Danny Syvret; goaltender Jake Allen along with Jonathan Cheechoo and Sterling will toli in the AHL to start the season. At one point, we thought Sterling might have what it takes to be a second or third liner in the NHL. We don't think that any more.

Brett Sterling has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues.

Sterling has been an excellent player at the AHL level, but he hasn't been able to earn a permanent spot on an NHL squad. At this point he should be regarded as a depth player, but he's still worth keeping an eye on if he manages to earn a roster spot with the Blues.

The Penguins have returned forward Brett Sterling to the AHL.

Sterling rejoins his teammates in Wilkes-Barre after his performance in seven NHL games tapered off after a fantastic start. Most recently, Sterling was a healthy scratch in the team's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes Friday. The return of forwards Mark Letestu and Dustin Jeffrey also didn't help Sterling's chances.

Brett Sterling scored a goal for the Penguins in a 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago Sunday.

Sterling continues to impress with five points in as many games during his current stint with the Pens. The pocket-sized forward plays with an edge and offers a nice combination of scoring and penalty minutes for fantasy owners. Matt Cooke's shorthanded marker was the only other Pittsburgh goal in the loss.

Brett Sterling is taking advantage of the opportunity he has been given with the Penguins.

With so many of the Penguins regulars on the shelf, the diminutive Sterling is capitalizing by filling the net in their absence. Sterling's AHL statistics are impressive, but he has never managed to sustain any production at the NHL level. With three points and 16 penalty minutes in just three contests, he's starting to turn a few heads. Deryk Engelland and Nick Johnson also found the back of the net in the losing effort for Pittsburgh.

Brett Sterling was among 11 players cut by the Penguins on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh also sent forwards Chris Conner, Nick Johnson, Joe Vitale and Tim Wallace; defensemen Robert Bortuzzo, Corey Potter, Brian Strait and Steve Wagner; and goalies Brad Thiessen and John Curry to the AHL ranks. Conner, Curry, Potter, Sterling, Wagner and Wallace have to through waivers before heading to the minors.

Brett Sterling has been holding his own skating with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

It goes without saying what this would mean for Sterling if he could hold on to this gig. Keep and eye on this situation. It is bound to be fluid.

Brett Sterling posted a goal and an assist in his Pittsburgh debut in preseason action on Wednesday night.

The Penguins rolled to a 5-1 win over Detroit in the contest and Sterling was named the first star of the game. He played with Sidney Crosby until the Pittsburgh captain sat out the third period with a sore hip. Sterling is trying to earn a spot on the roster, after signing in the summer, and performances like this should go a long way to helping him in that regard.

The Penguins have signed former Thrasher prospect Brett Sterling to a one-year, two way contract worth $500,000.

This is a nice low-risk signing by the Pens. Sterling has plenty of offensive skills (34 goals and 56 points in 55 games in the AHL last season) but is undersized at 5'7" and 175 pounds. If he can just bulk up a little so that he can compete in the high traffic areas of the ice, Sterling could be a worthy linemate of either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. Consider him an REM sleeper.

The Thrashers have traded minor-league players Brett Sterling and Michael Vernace, along with a seventh-round draft pick in 2010 to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for future considerations.

The move was done so that Atlanta could pull off the seven-player swap with the Chicago Blackhawks and get under the NHL limit of 50 contracts per team. Sterling notched 34 goals and 56 points in 55 games with the Wolves in the AHL this past campaign.

Brett Sterling has been sent down to the minors.

It is assumed that Sterling is returning to the AHL Chicago Wolves where he has previously scored 16 goals and 31 points in 41 games this season. Sterling also had one goal in six games with the Atlanta Thrashers.

Brett Sterling was called up from the minors on Saturday March 14.

Sterling scored the shootout winner for the Thrashers, who have won five in a row. Sterling has been outstanding with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL this season as he has 38 goals, 71 points and 116 penalty minutes in 70 games. He needs a break to play in the NHL as he will turn 25 in April.
