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.

Mar 23 - 2:34 AM

Magnus Paajarvi continues to progress in his recovery from an upper-body injury.

He is listed as questionable for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Flyers but we would not be at all shocked if he played in the matinee game.
Mar 22 - 9:28 AM

Magnus Paajarvi (upper body) is questionable to play Wednesday.

He traveled with the Blues to Chicago after practicing on Tuesday. Paajarvi suffered an upper-body injury against Edmonton last Thursday and he hasn't played since.
Mar 19 - 11:09 AM

Magnus Paajarvi has sustained an upper-body injury.

Paajarvi will miss Saturday's game as a result. He has six goals and 12 points in 44 games in 2013-14.
Mar 14 - 3:07 PM

Magnus Paajarvi had the game-winning goal in Thursday's 2-1 victory against Nashville.

He got his sixth goal of the 2013-14 campaign just before the midway mark of the contest. "I think I surprised myself with my speed there a little bit," Paajarvi said of his winner. "From the blueline in, it was kind of a half-breakaway. Yeah, it was a nice goal, nice to get it." He skated on the fourth line with Maxim Lapierre and Ryan Reaves.
Mar 7 - 10:37 AM

Magnus Paajarvi is slated to play Tuesday after he was a healthy scratch Saturday.

"He didn't deserve to come out the last game," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "But somebody had to and it was my decision to make the change. But he's going right back in tomorrow. He deserves to play and he's played really well." The Blues got Alexander Steen back that night, so someone had to come out. Paajarvi has four goals and six points in 31 games this year.
Jan 27 - 5:25 PM

Magnus Paajarvi scored his fourth goal of the season in Monday's win versus Detroit.

Coach Ken Hitchcock was impressed with the winger's play: "Paajarvi was excellent. He showed great speed, he was on top of people, he put a lot of pressure on people. He is really gaining confidence, and if the coach was a little smarter and played him a little more, we'd be better off." He has six points in 29 appearances this year.
Jan 21 - 10:53 AM

Magnus Paajarvi scored his third goal of the 2013-14 season on Monday.

He also had an assist in his return to Edmonton on Saturday, but he has recorded a mere four points in 17 appearances with the Blues this year. St. Louis has tremendous depth among their forwards, so Paajarvi has averaged just 9:10 of ice time per game when he has played.

A game in Edmonton tonight will be a stroll down memory lane for forward Magnus Paajarvi, whom the Blues acquired from the Oilers for David Perron back in July.

It has been a stop-and-start season for Paajarvi, who has been slowed by injuries. He has two goals in 15 games, but he has no regrets about coming to St. Louis. "I've come to a really great team and it's really nice and a lot of fun to be on this team, so I have no hard feelings or anything like that against Edmonton," Paajarvi said. "It'll be fun. I mean I had been there for three years. I know a lot of people there, one of my best friends (Anton Lander) is on the team. So it will be a lot of familiar faces. It'll be fun."

Magnus Paajarvi has recovered from the flu.

Paajarvi missed Monday's game, but said he's available for Thursday's contest if the Blues want to use him. He has a goal in 10 games this season.
