Former first overall selection Nail Yakupov will sit out his fifth consecutive game Wednesday night.

The St. Louis Blues took a chance to enhance scoring depth, but the former Oilers first overall selection hasn't been able to find consistent production and as a result has been consistently scratched.

Nail Yakupov will likely be scratched on Thursday.

Yakupov served as an extra in Thursday's practice. That would end his run of six straight games in the lineup. The 2012 first overall pick has three goals and six points in 27 games this season.
Jan 19 - 4:22 PM

Nail Yakupov will skate on the second line against the Sharks on Saturday night.

He'll flank Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko on the left. And, if we're being honest, this sounds like a dynamic line. With three goals and six points in 24 games this season, now's as good a time as any to get going.
Jan 14 - 8:15 PM

Nail Yakupov (illness) returned to action on Saturday.

It was a typical Yakupov game as he was held off the score sheet. The first overall pick in 2012 has been a bust, both in St. Louis this season with three goals and six points in 22 games, and his career in Edmonton. If he was in your lineup...sorry.
