Ville Husso has been assigned to the AHL by St. Louis.

The Blues also sent forwards Jacob Doty, Mackenzie MacEachern and Justin Selman to the Chicago Wolves. Husso was excellent in Finland for HIFK last season, where he posted a .927 save percentage and a 1.91 goals-against average in 39 outings.

Yan Stastny has been released from his professional tryout.

He played in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga last year, so a return to Europe probably isn't out of the question. Stastny hasn't played in the NHL 2009-10.

Jordan Schmaltz is battling for a roster spot with the Blues at training camp.

He is competing with Robert Bortuzzo, Petteri Lindbohm and Chris Butler. "It's interesting," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Nobody's emerged yet. Schmaltz is in the picture now. We've got a lot of guys who are good players. Nobody's emerged either good or bad. They're there, they're knocking at the door, that's why we're going to really give these guys the exposure to make an impression." They will all play on Friday night versus Dallas.

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.
Sep 29 - 2:54 PM

Robby Fabbri (upper body) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, but did skate prior to it.

Fabbri has missed four straight days of practice due to the injury. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock plans to hold Fabbri out until he's 100% and given that we're in September, there's no real reason to push him.
Sep 29 - 2:51 PM

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.
Sep 29 - 2:50 PM

Robby Fabbri (upper body) is expected to be back on the ice Thursday.

He didn't skate on Wednesday due to an upper-body injury. Fabbri is poised to take significant steps forward this season after showing plenty of potential in 2015-16 during his rookie year.
Sep 29 - 9:47 AM

David Perron (upper body) didn't skate on Wednesday.

However, he is expected to participate in Thursday's scrimmage. Perron returned to the Blues back in July on the first day of free agency on a two-year contract.
Sep 29 - 9:44 AM

The Blues will experiment with Dmitrij Jaskin as a center.

St. Louis expected to have Vladimir Sobotka back this season, but he will remain in the KHL for another year. Jaskin registered just 13 points in 65 games in 2015-16.
Sep 28 - 3:26 PM

Patrik Berglund is expected to get a look as the Blues' third-line center.

The Blues hoped that Vladimir Sobotka would fill that role, but he couldn't get out of his KHL contract. Berglund is eager to impress this season because he is eligible for unrestricted free agency in next summer.
Sep 28 - 3:23 PM

Jordan Kyrou has been returned to the OHL's Sarnia Sting.

Kyrou was the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The Blues also sent Filip Helt (Sarnia) and Adam Musil (Red Deer) to their junior teams. The latest roster cuts have St. Louis down to 53 players at camp.
Sep 28 - 2:20 PM

Vladimir Sobotka will indeed play in the KHL in 2016-17.

He has reported to Avangard Omsk after attempting to rejoin the Blues for the upcoming NHL campaign. Sobotka will play the final season of his KHL contract, so St. Louis will have to wait another year.
Sep 28 - 11:52 AM

Vladimir Sobotka will be back in the KHL next season, according to Avangard president Vladimir Shalaev.

He issued a statement on Tuesday stating that Sobotka would honor the final season of his three-year contract. Blues GM Doug Armstrong told the Post-Dispatch that he is "still waiting to hear" from Sobotka's camp for confirmation.
Sep 27 - 2:34 PM

Glenn Gawdin has been assigned to the WHL's Swift Current Broncos.

The Blues' training camp roster currently stands at 56 players. Gawdin scored 19 goals and 53 points in 53 games last year. He was a fourth-round pick in 2015.
Sep 27 - 1:32 PM

Jaden Schwartz still wasn't feeling like himself when he returned from an ankle injury during the 2015-16 campaign.

"I came back and played well and contributed," Schwartz said. "It’s tough to put a percentage on it, but I wasn’t anywhere near where I wanted to be. It’s a lot better this year." Schwartz still recorded 32 points in 46 games, including the playoffs, after returning from the injury. If he stays healthy he's got a shot at surpassing the 60-point mark in 2016-17.
