Magnus Paajarvi has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury.

He skated Wednesday but still needs more time before he is able to return. "I have to heal a little bit more, that's for sure," Paajarvi said. "I need some more time. ... I'm not 100 percent, but it's nice to be able to be out there and be with the boys."

Jan 10 - 10:59 AM

Magnus Paajarvi has impressed coach Ken Hitchcock lately.

"The guy that's gone unnoticed here is probably the guy that's playing the best hockey for us right now is Paajarvi," Hitchcock said. "Never mind the best I've seen him play. He looks like a heck of a hockey player in the National Hockey League right now." The Blues bench boss said that if Paajarvi can continue to play at his current tempo and pace then "he's going to be a valuable player for us the rest of this year." He scored his second goal of the season Monday in a loss to Philadelphia and he assisted on Vladimir Tarasenko's game winner against Boston on Tuesday. Paajarvi has been skating with Tarasenko and Paul Stastny.

Magnus Paajarvi lost his spot on the top line Tuesday.

Alexander Steen took his place alongside Vladimir Tarasenko and Paul Stastny in the third period and the trio produced the game-winning goal. Paajarvi doesn't have a point in his last four games and his first-line experiment may be over.

Magnus Paajarvi will stay on the top line Thursday night alongside Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko.

He picked up an assist on Tarasenko's 16th goal of the season on Tuesday in his first appearance on the line. "He held onto the puck and opened up lots of scoring and shooting space for Vladi," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "That's a good line."

Magnus Paajarvi skated with Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko during Monday's practice.

It sounds like that line will remain intact for Tuesday's game versus Arizona. "He's got to look at this as a chance of a lifetime and hopefully he takes advantage of it," coach Ken Hitchcock said after the session. He has one goal and one assist in 14 games this year.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 03:22:00 PM

Magnus Paajarvi scored his first goal of the season Tuesday night.

He has dressed in three games with the Blues since being called up from the minors last week. Paajarvi's goal was also his first in 27 games with St. Louis dating back to 2013-14. He had one assist in 10 appearances with the big club last year.

Magnus Paajarvi has been summoned from the minors.

He will suit up in Wednesday's game versus Chicago. Paajarvi has notched four goals and three assists in seven AHL games this season. It's unclear who will sit out, but the Blues want Paajarvi to play to add some speed to the lineup.
Wed, Nov 4, 2015 01:12:00 PM

Magnus Paajarvi has been sent down to the AHL.

He was hoping for a fresh start after suiting up in just 10 games with St. Louis last season, but he'll have to start his quest back to the NHL in the minors.
Mon, Oct 5, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Magnus Paajarvi is on waivers.

Paajarvi was also placed on waivers in December, but he went unclaimed. He had an assist in 10 games with St. Louis last season and 29 points in 36 AHL contests.
Wed, Sep 30, 2015 01:31:00 PM

Magnus Paajarvi hasn't been able to catch on with the St. Louis Blues since he was acquired from Edmonton, but he's hoping to change that in 2015-16.

He had six goals and six assists in 55 games during the 2013-14 season and last year he appeared in just 10 contests with the Blues. Paajarvi spent most of the campaign in the minors, where he had 11 goals and 29 points in 36 games, and he feels he regained some confidence. Patrik Berglund's injury has opened a roster spot on St. Louis and Paajarvi wants to prove that he's worthy of it at training camp.
Mon, Sep 14, 2015 04:43:00 PM

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.
Wed, Jul 8, 2015 05:45:00 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.
