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.
Nov 4 - 1:12 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.

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.
Sep 30 - 1:31 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.
Sep 14 - 4:43 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.
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.
Jul 5 - 6:29 PM

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 Paajarvi was placed on waivers Monday.

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.
