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.
Apr 6 - 3:45 PM

Brian Elliott will be in goal Sunday afternoon against the Blackhawks.

We just want to remind you that the game starts at 12:30 pm EST so if you want Elliott's stats to count make sure he is active early.
Apr 6 - 11:42 AM

The St. Louis Blues are expected to start Brian Elliott on Sunday.

Ryan Miller will get a game off after kicking out 25 of 29 shots in a 4-0 loss to Colorado on Saturday. Elliott has a 1.93 GAA and .922 save percentage in 29 contests in 2013-14.
Apr 5 - 6:54 PM

Brian Elliott made 24 saves as St. Louis edged the Sabres on Thursday night 2-1.

Elliott could probably be a starter on some teams, but with Ryan Miller in town, he makes for one of the better backups in the league. Making his first start since March 23, Elliott gave up one goal, late in the third period. He has won his last three decisions, and he has a 1.93 goals-against average and .922 save percentage this season.
Apr 3 - 10:53 PM

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

He will get the call against the Buffalo Sabres in his first action since he shut out Pittsburgh on Mar. 23 with 33 stops. The Blues play Saturday and Sunday, so going with Elliott here could mean that Ryan Miller will start back-to-back games this weekend against divisional foes, Colorado and Chicago.
Apr 2 - 1:26 PM

Brian Elliott stopped all 33 Pittsburgh Penguins shots to draw a 1-0 win for the St. Louis Blues.

The 28-year-old has quietly put together a strong season as a backup, going 17-5-2 with a .921 save percentage, 1.97 GAA and four shutouts. Those who are either keeping him for quality-over-quantity starts or added him this weekend were paid off nicely today.
Mar 23 - 4:27 PM

Brian Elliott is projected to start Sunday afternoon against Pittsburgh.

Ryan Miller was between the pipes for Saturday's matinee loss to Philadelphia. Elliott made 17 stops in a 3-2 shootout win over Minnesota on Mar. 9 in his only other start since Miller joined the Blues.
Mar 23 - 8:04 AM

Brian Elliott, starting in net for the Blues for the first time since goaltender Ryan Miller was acquired in a blockbuster trade with Buffalo a few days ago, needed to make only 17 saves in regulation and overtime before St. Louis took a 3-2 shootout win over the Wild in Minnesota Sunday night.

Elliott reminded his coaches that he isn't a bad netminder himself. His GAA is now 2.07. His save percentage, .916.
Mar 9 - 10:58 PM

Brian Elliott understands that he won't get much playing time down the stretch with Ryan Miller on the Blues' roster.

"We've got a great goalie in 'Millsie' coming in and I think St. Louis is excited about it," said Elliott. "I have thought a lot about (playing time). I haven't really talked to the coaching staff about it, but like I always say, when you have that opportunity you have to make the most of it. ... It's a tough stretch those last 20 games. So I'll get to play, too, and I want to get there and do the best I can, and showcase what I have and try to get some wins for the team." Miller is a workhorse netminder and the Blues will give him plenty of starts in their pursuit of the Presidents' Trophy.
Mar 6 - 6:25 PM

Brian Elliott is unlikely to be a member of the St. Louis Blues after this season.

The Blues will probably try to re-sign Ryan Miller, who is "very open" to staying with the team after he was acquired from Buffalo last Friday. Elliott is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in the summer and Jake Allen's contact turns into a one-way deal in 2014-15. If the pieces fall into place then Elliott will be playing elsewhere next season.
Mar 4 - 10:18 AM

Brian Elliot blocked 18 of 19 shots in St. Louis' 1-0 loss to Anaheim Friday evening at Honda Center.

Jaroslav Halak had been scheluded to start, but he was traded to Buffalo before the game so Elliot got the start and played well. Elliot now has a 15-5-2 record with a fantastic 2.08 GAA and .917 save percentage. The Blues traded Ryan Miller from Buffalo so this means that Elliot's playing time will likely be minimal for the remainder of the season. Elliot had a interesting backup against the Ducks: Jeff Tyni, a Ducks' locker room attendant.
Mar 1 - 3:08 AM

Look for Brian Elliott to start for St. Louis on Friday.

Jaroslav Halak is being traded to Buffalo, so he obviously won't be available. The Blues are also bringing in Ryan Miller, which means that Elliott's playing time will likely be minimal for the remainder of the season.
