The St. Louis Blues decided not to sign Jason Arnott after all.

The big center has flirted with the Blues and the New York Rangers lately, but injuries and age apparently have been too much for those teams to give him a shot.

Jason Arnott continues to skate with the St. Louis Blues, who are expected to make a decision on whether to sign the veteran center by Sunday.

Arnott's deal with the Rangers earlier in the season fell apart when he was unable to pass a physical. Arnott had offseason knee surgery and said Tuesday that he wants to see how the knee responds to on-ice work. "If everything goes well and my body feels good, hopefully we can both say yes and move forward and contribute to win," Arnott said. Sounds like we should know more by the end of the week.

The St. Louis Blues are looking once again at unrestricted free agent Jason Arnott.

Arnott inked a deal with the Rangers over a month ago but the center was unable to pass his physical voiding the deal. He played through shoulder and knee issues with St. Louis and with the Blues currently struggling, he is on their radar. "I talked to Jason's representative and he said he still has that burning desire to play," GM Doug Armstrong said. "It made me start to think, if you've accomplished everything he has, and you’re into March and you still want to play, you have the passion for the game. He's going to join us this week on the road trip, make sure his body is with his mind and that he is ready to play. He did have some offseason surgery. We have information from the doctors that he is ready to go." Stay tuned.

Free agent center Jason Arnott will not be joining the New York Rangers after all.

The team decided against proceeding in contract negotiations with Arnott after medical concerns emerged. The Rangers and the veteran center had agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.6 million on Saturday, pending a physical, but he isn't 100 percent healthy. Arnott played through shoulder and knee issues last season with St. Louis and he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery during the off-season.

The New York Rangers have signed Jason Arnott to a one-year deal.

Arnott will reportedly come with an annual cap hit in the ballpark of $1.6-1.7 million. He'll provide the New York Rangers with some extra depth on their third or fourth line. He might also be a nice secondary scorer for the Rangers, but not to the point where he'll have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

The Vancouver Canucks might have some interest in unrestricted free agent Jason Arnott.

The St. Louis Blues don't seem to want Arnott back, presumably because they want to get younger. However, with Ryan Kesler expected to be sidelined until December, the Vancouver Canucks could use another capable center. Arnott had 17 goals and 34 points in 72 games last season while averaging 14:05 minutes per contest.

Jason Arnott did not play in Game 3 due to a lower body injury.

The veteran center did not skate on Wednesday when the injury was announced. The Blues are trailing the Los Angeles Kings 3-0 in the best-of-seven Western Conference semi-finals so his return to the lineup for Game 4 is sorely needed. Stay tuned as Arnott has only one goal in seven playoff matches this season after scoring 13 goals and a similar amount of assists in the regular season.

Jason Arnott didn't skate on Wednesday and is apparently dealing with a lower-body injury.

Coach Ken Hitchcock classified the veteran forward as day-to-day, so we'll consider him questionable to play on Thursday in Game 3 at Los Angeles. Arnott has one goal and 11 shots in seven postseason contests.

Jason Arnott is expected to dress on Wednesday after missing the past two games to rest some bumps and bruises he has been suffering from.

"I feel way better," Arnott said. "It's just nagging injuries. You want to rest and get healed. You don't heal as quick as you do when you're 20 years old. It was nice to get a break, but it will be nice to get back in the mix." He has notched 16 goals and 16 assists in 64 games this year.

Jason Arnott is expected to spend Saturday's game in the press box.

The Blues are poised to not only make the playoffs, but finish with the first seed in the Western Conference. With that in mind, Arnott will get the occasional game off to keep him rested and healed for the start of the postseason. Arnott will turn 38 in October.

Jason Arnott (shoulder) will return to the St. Louis lineup on Thursday.

The veteran center has missed the last six games with the injury. He is the leading power play point getter with the Blues and his absence in the St. Louis lineup has been sorely missed. Get ready to activate him.
