Vladimir Tarasenko collected his first hat trick of the season during Thursday's 5-4 win over the Lightning.
It's his first hatty since Dec. 16th, 2015 and the third of his career. He also picked up an assist, giving him his second such game of the season and fourth of his career. With 13 goals and 27 points in 24 games thus far this season, it seems safe to say he's worth the price of admission. Dec 2 - 2:04 AM

Also scoring for St. Louis Monday were Robby Fabbri (fifth), Alex Pietrangelo (fifth) and David Perron (seventh).

Vladimir Tarasenko scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Tarasenko had a solid night at the office, but his fellow Russian sniper, Alex Ovechkin, one-upped him by scoring a hat trick for the Capitals. Tarasenko cut Washington's lead to 2-1 in the second period and he made things interesting by making it 4-3 with 29 seconds remaining in regulation. Tarasenko has nine goals and 22 points in 21 games in 2016-17.

Vladimir Tarasenko is indeed on the ice Thursday against the Sharks.

That's about as clear a sign as any that he's going to play, especially with Alex Steen not on the ice. Tarasenko has six goals and 18 points through 17 games thus far.
Nov 17 - 7:33 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko is a question mark to play Thursday night.

He didn't skate on Wednesday and Thursday after he was dinged up on Tuesday night. Tarasenko will take part in the pregame warmup and then a decision on his playing status will be made by the Blues.
Nov 17 - 12:35 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko took a maintenance day, so he didn't practice Wednesday.

He is expected to play on Thursday versus San Jose. Tarasenko extended his point streak to six consecutive matches on Tuesday with an assist. He has racked up two goals and seven helpers over that span.
Nov 16 - 4:33 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko could not be blamed for the 8-4 loss of the St Louis Blues to the Columbus Blue Jackets as he netted one goal and three assists Saturday night.

Tarasenko was on shift for every Blues’ goal, in fact, he personally had a piece of each with assists in the first and second periods and a goal and an assist in the third. Tarasenko had four other shots on Blue Jackets’ Sergei Bobrovsky. Tarasenko, who historically has been known more as a goal scorer, has seen himself grow in the helper role this season with 11 assists to his six goals. Moving ever so slightly out of the Blues’ spotlight, we see him evolve within the franchise.

Vladimir Tarasenko scored the game winning goal Saturday night as the St Louis Blue beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1.

Tarasenko was on a seven-game skid without a goal. The last time he found the back of the net prior to Saturday night was on October 18th against the Canucks. In the interim, he managed to get a few assists, but even those dried up once November rolled around and the Blues lost back-to-back games to the Rangers and Stars.
Nov 6 - 1:45 AM

Vladimir Tarasenko is tied for the league-lead with 40 shots on goal this season.

He and Sharks defenseman Brent Burns currently share the lead in that category. It's hardly surprising that the Blues sniper finds himself near the top of this list. He hit the 40-goal mark for the first time in his career last season and he's on pace to do so again in 2016-17. Tarasenko has four goals and four assists in eight games.
Oct 29 - 11:10 AM

Vladimir Tarasenko scored first, but did not receive any offensive help in the St Louis Blues 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday night.

After a scoreless first period, Tarasenko scored at the 10:23 minute mark of the second. He now has four goals in four games this season, which makes him an easy choice on fantasy rosters. Last year, Tarasenko averaged one goal in every two games for a total of 40.
Oct 19 - 1:51 AM

Vladimir Tarasenko scored the first goal of the night and assisted in the game winner in the St Louis Blues 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers.

Tarasenko put this first point on the board barely 1:13 minutes into the first period with an assist from Colton Parayko. Alex Pietrangelo scored the game winner during a power play at the 2:28 minute mark of the third with an assist from Paul Stastny and Tarasenko. His three goals so far this season have been a big part of the reason the Blues are undefeated through three games. More importantly, Tarasenko is banking a ton of fantasy points.
Oct 15 - 11:56 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko scored two goals and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

This was a rematch of last year's first round matchup in the postseason, which the Blues won. Tarasenko got on the board with a power play goal late in the second period to tie the game 2-2. His second goal of the game was scored into an empty net and gave his team a 4-2 lead. The 24-year-old scored 40 goals last season and don't be surprised if he surpasses that number this season. He's one of the best pure snipers in the NHL right now. Kevin Shattenkirk, Paul Stastny and Scottie Upshall also scored for the Blues.
Oct 12 - 10:48 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko blasted the first goal in the St Louis Blues 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. It came at the 6:53 minute mark of the first period.

This was an example of the importance of the faceoff. Jori Lehtera snagged the puck from Dennis Rasmussen and fed it to Tarasenko who unhesitantly slapped a shot at the net. Tarasenko also has an assist in the third period game winner by Alex Pietrangelo.
Oct 8 - 10:41 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-2 preseason loss to the Washington Capitals.

This was Tarasenko's first game of the preseason, as the Blues gave him a bit of a break because he played for Russia at the World Cup. It took Tarasenko just 11:05 to get his first goal of the preseason. The 24-year-old scored 40 goals last season and he should finish with a similar total in 2016-17. He's one of the premiere snipers in the NHL.
Oct 5 - 10:48 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko rejoined the Blues for Thursday's practice.

Tarasenko had been representing Russia in the World Cup. Now that he's back with the team, he practiced with his normal linemates of Jori Lehtera and Jaden Schwartz. Unfortunately, Schwartz sustained an injury during the practice that will sideline him for a couple days, so the STL line will be broken up again for a little bit.
