Jaden Schwartz appears to be back on his road to stardom.
Schwartz has always been considered an upper-tier talent. But injuries and to some extent learning to play at the NHL level has kept him from realizing his full potential. Over the last few games the Blues have seen what Schwartz can do. St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock was full of praise for his uber talented winger. "He's just tenacious. The skill level and the timing of everything, I'm really happy for him", said Hitchcock. "He's really on top of his game right now; he's really playing well." If those in your pool haven't caught on to Schwartz, steal him for cheap. It might be the last time you get the chance. Nov 27 - 11:53 AM

Jaden Schwartz snapped a three-game goalless streak with two sunk pucks within 90 seconds of one other. With these two goals Schwartz rose to eight for the season.

Jaden Schwartz scored a pair of goals in St. Louis' 3-2 win over the San Jose on Thursday night.

Schwartz tied the game at one at the 10:38 mark of the first period, after Logan Couture opened the scoring for the Sharks. In the second period, Schwartz gave the Blues a 2-1 lead. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal in just over 20 minutes of ice time. After getting off to a slow start, Schwartz has picked up five goals in his last six games. The Blues are also rewarding him with plenty of ice time, as he's played at least 18:53 in each of his last five games.

Jaden Schwartz scored in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Schwartz's goal just 44 seconds into the third period gave the Blues a 2-1 lead and eventually proved to be the game-winner. He got off to a slow start this season, but he's managed to score three goals in his last five contests. The Blues forward now has four goals and two assists in 13 games this season. Robby Fabbri, Kyle Brodziak and Scottie Upshall also scored for St. Louis.

Jaden Schwartz scored in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Schwartz was the first one to get on the board, but Nashville responded by scoring the next three goals. After a disappointing stretch, the Blues forward has picked up a point in three straight games and he's found the back of the net in two of those contests. He has three goals and two assists in 11 games.

Jaden Schwartz earned an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime loss to Chicago.

He has picked up just four point in 10 games this campaign, but two have come in the past two outings. That could be a sign that Schwartz is starting to turn things around.
Nov 10 - 9:14 AM

Jaden Schwartz scored the only goal in the Blues 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings Saturday night.

In five games this season, Schwartz now has only one goal and one assist, but he is not that far out of sync with the rest of the team. The four previous games he has played in were mostly low scoring affairs with his team earning only one goal each in four of those games. Schwartz’s only other point earned this season came in a 6-4 win over the Flames on October 22nd when he had an assist on Alexander Steen’s empty netter.

Jaden Schwartz (elbow) will make his season debut on Thursday.

That's a nice break for the Blues and Schwartz as he was originally expected to be out until at least the end of October. Instead Schwartz only ended up missing four games. "He hasn't missed any time as far as ice," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He's been practicing with us for a week now. He looks like he's got a lot of jump. He looks like he's ready to play. Sure there's going to be a tempo issue because he was only able to play the one exhibition game. But I think he's going to be up to speed right away." Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko are Schwartz's likely linemates. David Perron had gotten some ice time with Steen and Tarasenko, but is projected to play on the third line Thursday.
Oct 20 - 4:23 PM

Jaden Schwartz is likely to return to the lineup on Thursday.

"He's in the practice as a full-time employee, so we'll see from there," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "If he's a full-time employee today and he does OK, then he'll be a full-time employee tomorrow." He practiced on a line with Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko on Wednesday.
Oct 19 - 5:37 PM

Jaden Schwartz (elbow) won't be back in the lineup Tuesday, but he is still close to being available to return.

He participated in the team's optional skate Tuesday morning. "He's close," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Today was the second fitness skate. If he passed the fitness skate, then it's time to evaluate him to see if he's ready to play. If I get the numbers back that I want, after the skate evaluation today, then we'll look to put him as a full-practice player tomorrow to evaluate him for a game player."
Oct 18 - 4:48 PM

Jaden Schwartz (elbow) hasn't been ruled out of Tuesday's game versus Vancouver.

He skated on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen on Monday. Schwartz's initial timetable had him sidelined for the first nine games of the season, but he appears to be ahead of that schedule. "Schwartz is available in the next few games," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We're not sure, we'll talk to him after tomorrow." He is feeling much better, but he will remain cautious and won't rush his return to the lineup.
Oct 17 - 2:49 PM

Jaden Schwartz (elbow) participated in Friday's optional practice.

It was Schwartz's first time practicing with the Blues since he sustained the injury in late September. He's still at least two weeks away from returning, but clearly he's making progress.
Oct 14 - 3:46 PM

The St. Louis Blues are relieved that Jaden Schwartz's elbow injury isn't as bad as it could have been.

Schwartz will miss at least four weeks, but coach Ken Hitchock isn't too concerned about that time frame. "It could have been a lot worse," Hitchcock said. "It’s four weeks and we’ve got two weeks of training camp left. It’s not that many games. You get an injury like that, it could be nothing, it could be surgery, you don’t know what you’re into with that type of injury. We’ll deal with it. ... It’s nothing we can’t make an adjustment for."
Oct 1 - 8:48 AM

Jaden Schwartz is out for a minimum of four weeks with an elbow injury.

This update is in contrast to Thursday's report when Blues coach Ken Hitchcock was optimistic that Schwartz wouldn't be absent for long. It's particularly unfortunate because Schwartz was limited to just 33 games last season, so this is becoming an unwanted trend with the young forward. When he is healthy though, he is a very effective forward.

Jaden Schwartz sustained an injury during Thursday's practice.

The nature of Schwartz's ailment isn't clear, but he was shaking his hand/wrist as he made his way off the ice and to the training room, so presumably that's what was hurting. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock expects Schwartz to need a couple days off, but to be fine beyond that.
