Carl Gunnarsson picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Sunday.
He only saw 42 seconds of power-play time in the match, but made the most of it by scoring his first goal of the season. Gunnarsson has four points in his last two games, but this scoring surge is unlikely to last. He has never surpassed 20 points in a single season during his NHL career. Oct 19 - 12:05 PM

Carl Gunnarsson hit the scoreboard with two assists in Friday's 4-3 win over Vancouver.

Certainly no fantasy maven, Gunnarsson picked up a pair of secondary assists on nifty goals by Jori Lehtera and Troy Brouwer. They're the first two points of the season for him, and considering his career high is 20, it may be a bit before we write him up for scoring again.

Carl Gunnarsson (groin) is expected to be ready for the regular season.

He was day-to-day with a groin injury last week, but skated alongside Kevin Shattenkirk on Tuesday and GM Doug Armstrong said the defenseman was healthy.
Oct 6 - 2:47 PM

Carl Gunnarsson is considered day-to-day with a groin injury.

He pulled his groin during Monday's practice. Gunnarsson missed chunks of the 2014-15 season due to injury, but it's too early to tell right now if this ailment will carry into the upcoming campaign.

Carl Gunnarsson will get back into the Blues' lineup on Tuesday.

He was a healthy scratch Sunday and will draw back in because Robert Bortuzzo was injured in that match.
Apr 7 - 12:54 PM

Carl Gunnarsson, Chris Porter, and Chris Butler will each sit out Sunday night's tilt with the Chicago Blackhawks.

While Porter and Butler leave much to be desired on the fantasy front, Gunnarsson has had a nice season for himself. He's posted 12 points, 41 hits, and 104 blocks over 54 games this season. Perhaps most remarkably, he's only taken a single penalty, a minor, this season.
Apr 5 - 6:23 PM

Carl Gunnarsson (upper body) will rejoin the Blues on Saturday.

Gunnarsson missed two games due to the ailment. He has two goals and 12 points in 55 contests in 2014-15. Look for him to be paired with Alex Pietrangelo.

Carl Gunnarsson left Saturday's game against the Wild in the second period with an upper-body injury.

Gunnarsson has already missed time because of a hip injury and a concussion this season. It's unclear how long the Blues expect him to be out but they will probably take the proper precautions with the playoffs right around the corner.
Mar 22 - 10:43 AM

Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

Gunnarsson hasn't played since Dec. 6. He has a goal and five points in 20 games this season. His return will likely lead to Ian Cole spending more time in the press box.
Jan 2 - 2:06 PM

Carl Gunnarsson's status should be clearer after Friday's morning skate.

"We're going to talk to him today and see if he's ready to play," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He's had no complications, no setbacks at all. He's acting and behaving just like a player now." He has missed the last 11 games with a concussion, but could return on Friday.
Jan 2 - 10:44 AM

Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) may not be available to return Friday.

Jan 1 - 3:45 PM

Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) is projected to return on Friday.

The Blues returned defenseman Petteri Lindbohm to the minors on Monday. Gunnarsson has been sidelined since Dec. 6 because of a concussion. He's currently still listed on injured reserve.

Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) will miss at least two more games.

Gunnarsson might be available on Friday or Saturday though. He has missed eight straight contests. The Blues sent Petteri Lindbohm to the minors, which frees a roster spot for Gunnarsson's eventual return.
