Keith Tkachuk announced his retirement on Wednesday.

The Blues are not going to make the playoffs so this is it for the future Hall of Famer. "It's always tough after you've played that long, but I know it's the right decision," Tkachuk said. "I'm honored that I was able to play that long, and the thing I'm most proud of, I get to retire as a St. Louis Blue. That means the world to me." The 38-year-old sat out Wednesday with a lower body injury but will play on Friday in the Blues final home game. Congratulations on an outstanding career Keith.

Keith Tkachuk is questionable for Wednesday's game due to a lower-body injury.

The 38-year-old veteran has 30 points and 56 PIMs in 66 games this campaign. We'll keep you posted.

Keith Tkachuk returned to action on Thursday after missing one game with a lower body injury.

These could be the last two-plus weeks of Tkachuk's NHL career as the veteran is seriously contemplating retirement. He has had a terrific career that started in Winnipeg with the Jets. He has 537 goals and 1,062 points in 1,195 games. He should be headed to the Hall of Fame upon his retirement.

Keith Tkachuk seems to be seriously considering retirement.

"I know that I can still play, but it’s been a long time . . . a lot of hard games, a lot of hard years. I’ll talk to my wife and take to Larry (Pleau) and we’ll make a decision. (But) I love this game. I love these guys," Tkachuk said. He's scored 537 goals and 1,061 points in 1,191 career games. Tkachuk's fantasy value has significantly diminished and it looks like he will fail to reach the 20-goal milestone for the first time since 2005-06, when he was limited to just 41 games. If he chooses to continue to play hockey in 2010-11, he can still provide some offensive depth and veteran leadership to a young Blues team, but he won't have any fantasy value.

Keith Tkachuk (finger) may be able to play on Sunday.

He has been out of action since Feb. 9 with a broken finger, but has been skating with the team of late.
Sun, Mar 14, 2010 10:38:00 AM

Keith Tkachuk (finger) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Tkachuk broke his finger, had surgery on February 28 and was initially said to be out ten days. It may be a game or two longer than that. He has 12 goals and 28 points this season in 55 games. He has little fantasy value.

Keith Tkachuk (finger) practiced with the St. Louis Blues on Monday.

Tkachuk was initially projected to miss 10 days after undergoing surgery on his left pinky finger on February 26th, so he could return to the Blues' lineup any day now. He has 12 goals and 28 points in 55 games this season.
Mon, Mar 8, 2010 03:44:00 PM

Keith Tkachuk will miss the next 10 days following surgery on his left pinky finger.

Well at least now we know what that "upper body" injury was. If you have Tkachuk on your fantasy squad, reserve him for the time being.

Keith Tkachuk (upper body) is questionable for Saturday's game against Washington.

Tkachuk injured his hand or forearm against the Red Wings on Tuesday. The game against the Capitals will be the Blues last before the two-week Olympic break, so it makes sense to hold Tkachuk out of this one to give him a big rest. He has 12 goals and 28 points in 55 games this season. He is a fringe player in deep leagues.

Keith Tkachuk will miss Friday's game due to an upper body injury.
