Magnus Paajarvi has agreed to a one-year, $700,000 contract extension.
The deal is one-way so Paajarvi will earn that amount even if the Blues send him to the minors. He had an assist in 10 games with St. Louis and another 29 points in 36 AHL contests last season. He had filed for arbitration, but this deal obviously makes that moot. Jul 8 - 5:45 PM

Magnus Paajarvi has decided to file for salary arbitration.

Paajarvi is a former 10th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, but he's had a hard time finding a stable home in the NHL. The 24-year-old had just one assist in 10 games with the Blues this season.

Magnus Paajarvi wasn't claimed on waivers.

By waiving Paajarvi, the Blues freed up a roster spot ahead of Brian Elliott's activation on Tuesday. Chris Porter suffered a leg injury on Monday though and was placed on the injured reserve list, so the Blues didn't end up needing that extra roster spot. St. Louis still plans to send Paajarvi to the AHL though.

Magnus Pajarvi and Chris Porter will sit against the Senators on Tuesday night.

With just 15 games and one point, an assist by Paajarvi, through the Blues' first 21 games, it's tough to figure with much certainty when either will continue to see action. Which in Paajarvi's case, is unfortunate as his talents are clear.

Magnus Paajarvi will play Saturday night in place of the scratched Patrik Berglund.

The team has not disclosed why Berglund is out, though it’s most likely related to the slash he took against the Rangers on Thursday night. Paajarvi had 12 points in 55 games last year with the Blues.

The once dazzling rookie has strengthened his upper body at the behest of Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock.

Still just 23 years old, Paajarvi is in prime position to chisel a permanent spot on the roster. "We changed his fitness routine halfway through (the 2013-14 season) and focused on upper-body strength," Hitchcock said. "He bought into that and took that program into the summer and he's come and he is one, fit, strong guy right now. He's exactly what we need."

Magnus Paajarvi was back in the lineup on Tuesday.

He skated with Patrik Berglund and Steve Ott during a 1-0 shootout win over Philadelphia. "We've had that line play twice together and it's been very effective," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Paajarvi is back feeling good about himself now, so we put him in and keep him going. We want to keep that line together for as much as we can here, finish the season and see how we look." In 49 games this season, Paajarvi has notched six goals and six assists. This could finally be his chance to stick around in the Blues lineup.
