Brian Elliott will get the start in goal for St. Louis on Saturday.
Elliott is only 1-2-1 this season but his peripheral stats are quite good as he has a 1.73 GAA with a .924 save percentage. The Blues are in tough against the Chicago Blackhawks so this may not be a great spot to start the Blues netminder. Oct 25 - 11:39 AM

Brian Elliot allowed three goals on 25 shots in St. Louis’ 3-0 loss to the Ducks.

Matt Beleskey beat Elliot 1:37 into the game and Anaheim never looked back. The 29-year-old’s record now falls to 1-2-1 on the season and has a 1.73 goals-against-average and .924 save percentage.

Brian Elliott has some pretty impressive statistics behind him thus far in his career.

With his shutout Thursday night against Los Angeles, Elliott now has 17 for the Blues and 26 in his career. Although that might not seem much compared to the 67 that Roberto Luongo has, it is remarkable in that Elliott has only had 213 career starts. That translates to a shutout every 8.19 starts. Since 2008-09 that ranks second to only Tuukka Rask (8.08). With the Blues over three seasons Elliott has a 56-25-8 record with a 1.84 GAA and a .927 save percentage. All extremely impressive numbers. Perhaps we are seeing one of the NHL's elite goalies blossoming before our eyes.

It was a tough way to lose, but Jeff Carter's lone goal in the shootout was the difference in an otherwise shutout for Brian Elliott on Thursday night.

He stopped all 18 shots, including all five on the powerplay, the Kings sent his way. Carter ripped a snapper over his blocker before he even got set as the first shooter in the shootout. Otherwise the Blues starting goalie was stellar in LA.

Brian Elliott steadied his game in Saturday’s 4-1 win against the Flames on Saturday night.

Elliott made 23 saves on 24 shots on goal after giving up three goals in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday. He and Jake Allen were expected to share the job between the pipes early this season, until someone took control. Elliott is being given the first chance to claim it right now. He’s likely to get another start at the Kings on Thursday, too.

Brian Elliott will start again on Saturday.

Elliott kicked out 25 of 28 shots in his season debut on Thursday. He's got an opportunity to assert himself as the Blues' starter now that Jaroslav Halak is gone.

Brian Elliott allowed three goals on 25 shots in a losing effort on Thursday night, as the Blues were beaten 3-2 by the New York Rangers.

Elliott was fooled at 18:10 of the third period by Rick Nash, who torched the Blues defense for three points on the night. Elliott kept St. Louis in the game when they were badly outshot 16-8 in the first period and gave his team a chance to win.

Brian Elliott will be between the pipes for St. Louis on Thursday.

Coach Ken Hitchcock said a long time ago that Elliott would be the Blues' starter, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. It isn't clear how many games he will play this season, but he could be pushed by Jake Allen if he goes through a cold streak.
Oct 6 - 6:22 PM

Brian Elliott said he looks forward to the challenge of being the St. Louis Blues' No. 1 goalie.

"This is Brian Elliott's job. He earned it," Ken Hitchcock told NHL.com. Elliott's noted as a rather unpredictable netminder stats-wise, and with Jake Allen looming as a threat, he's a high-risk/high-reward proposal in fantasy.

Brian Elliott is being penciled in as the Blues' starting goaltender going into the season.

"[Ellliott's] watched two other guys [Miller and Jaroslav Halak] get the ball," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Now he feels like it's his turn. There's still going to be competition, but I think Brian's going to start as the incumbent based on experience and all the work he's put in." That isn't surprising considering Jake Allen has 15 games of NHL experience in his career. Allen will likely match that total this season, but the ball is in Elliott's court to prove he can be a starter.

Brian Elliott is looking forward to working with Jake Allen.

Elliott and Allen will be competing for the starting gig in 2014-15, although Elliott is likely to end up starting in more games. "I'm looking forward to it," Elliott said. "I think we have the most similar types of personalities of anyone that I've played with. We've texted back and forth over the summer a little bit. I think he's coming to Madison (Wis.) just before training camp to work together." Elliott's an interesting case as he's had some tremendous stretches, but he's also suffered a few complete collapses and that makes it hard to completely trust him. He had a great 1.96 GAA and .922 save percentage in 31 games last season though.
Jul 29 - 4:11 PM

Brian Elliott thinks he has a "fair fight" on his hands for the starting gig in St. Louis.

Elliott is expected to compete with Jake Allen after inking a three-year, $7.5 million contract. Allen is the guy the Blues want to see assume the job in the long-term, but Elliott probably has the inside track for the 2014-15 campaign, given his edge in experience. Elliott felt like the underdog in the battle against Jaroslav Halak and that was certainly the case during Ryan Miller's brief tenure, but Elliott thinks his new contract proves the Blues are willing to give him an opportunity to win the starting job. "I feel like I have been getting better my three years in St. Louis and I just want to continue that upward trend," Elliott said.
May 21 - 11:31 AM

Brian Elliott has agreed to a three-year, $7.5 million contract extension with the St. Louis Blues.

It looks like after years of being a capable backup, the Blues are willing to give Elliott a chance to serve as the team's starting goaltender. He'll have to compete with Jake Allen for that job, but Elliott should have the inside track. Historically, Elliott has been an incredibly streaky goaltender and that can make him painful from a fantasy perspective. However, he still wouldn't be a bad pickup in the latter half of standard fantasy drafts, assuming the Blues don't alter their goaltending situation any further.
May 19 - 11:10 AM

Brian Elliott is still unsure what his future holds with the St. Louis Blues.

He becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and if the Blues re-sign Ryan Miller then there isn't a spot available for him on the roster. "Honestly, I don't know," Elliott said. "From the very beginning of the season, my agent said, 'Let's approach the end of the year like you're going to be a free agent, and if other things happen, that's fine.' So I wasn't hung up on the issue." St. Louis wants Jake Allen to play in the NHL next season, so he'll either serve as Miller's backup or possibly work in tandem with Elliott if Miller ends up going elsewhere.
May 15 - 2:20 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks handed Brian Elliott and the St. Louis Blues a rare loss on Sunday by a score of 4-2.

Elliott allowed three goals on 34 shots in defeat. This ended a three-game winning streak. Elliott is now 18-6-2 with a .922 save percentage and 1.98 GAA and four shutouts in 2013-14.
