The St. Louis Blues acquired Marcel Goc from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Maxim Lapierre.

Goc has just two goals and four assists for six points in 43 games played this season. He does bring speed on the fourth line for the Blues. He spent parts of three seasons in Pittsburgh.

Although Martin Brodeur will be joining the Blues' front office, it might only be a temporary situation.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello revealed that he's been in constant contact with Brodeur and Blues GM Doug Armstrong. Brodeur made the decision to retire, but continue to help the Blues team he signed with in another capacity. However, Lamoriello believes that Brodeur will eventually assume a front office role with the Devils instead.

Martin Brodeur will announce the end of his playing career, but he'll reportedly stick with the Blues as an assistant general manager.

Brodeur will stick with the franchise in a front office capacity. He'll finish with a 2.24 GAA, .912 save percentage, and an NHL-high 691 wins in 1,266 games. He won the Stanley Cup three times and claimed the Vezina Trophy on four occasions. He's as safe a bet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as you get and he'll be routinely brought up during arguments when discussing the greatest goaltenders of all-time. The vast majority of his playing career was with the New Jersey Devils, but after it became apparent that they had moved on to goaltender Cory Schneider, Brodeur attempted to extend his career elsewhere and eventually signed with St. Louis. Although his time playing with the Blues was brief, they have to be happy that they'll get his wealth of experience as an assistant general manager.

Brian Elliott stopped nine of 15 shots for Team Foligno in the third period of Sunday's All-Star game. Team Toews won the battle, 17-12.

Yeesh. Not quite why one leaves a family vacation at Turks and Caicos, but then again, it's just an exhibition. Elliott's Blues meanwhile are tied with Chicago with 62 points in the Central division, three behind leading Nashville, and just two ahead of Wild Card Winnipeg. Elliott has been a big part of St. Louis' success, pitching a 13-5-2 record with just 39 goals against in 22 games played this season.

Brian Elliott will tend the net for Team Foligno in the third period on Sunday.

Elliott famously left his family on vacation in Turks and Caicos to get to Columbus in time for the game on Sunday, but you can see how and why he's earned the honor. He owns a 13-5-2 record with just 39 goals against in 22 games played this season.
Jan 24 - 7:29 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk is having the best season of his his career in 2014-15.

He has been standing out offensively and defensively. Shattenkirk is just six points away from matching his previous high of 45, which he established last year. He is also just two goals away from hitting double digits for a second straight season. Shattenkirk is one point behind Mark Giordano for top spot among all defensemen in scoring. He also leads all blueliners and is tied with Claude Giroux for first overall with 24 points on the power play. He has been solid defensively as well because he feels stronger and quicker on the ice.

Brian Elliott will replace Sergei Bobrovsky at the NHL All-Star Game.

Bobrovsky was injured Wednesday night in Winnipeg. Elliott has been superb this season for St. Louis, with .930 save percentage and a 1.86 goals-against average in 22 appearances. He also has 13 victories.
Jan 22 - 3:36 PM

Marcel Goc will be back in the lineup Wednesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

After being a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Flyers, Goc will be back on the fourth line Wednesday. The Penguin sent down forward Bobby Farnham to the AHL, creating a spot for Goc to fill in the lineup. In 41 games played this year, Goc has just two goals and two assists with a minus four rating.
Jan 21 - 5:01 PM

Marcel Goc and Andrew Ebbett will sit out Tuesday's tilt with the Philadelphia Flyers.

If your pool rewards faceoff wins and hits, then Goc is a good player for depth as he has just four points and 36 shots on goal through 41 games this season. Goc has 51 hits and has won 54% of his faceoffs with 224 wins overall. Ebbett however has no value to speak of.
Jan 20 - 6:50 PM

Jaden Schwartz scored his third game-winning goal of the year on Monday night.

He also added an assist in a 3-1 victory over Colorado. His primary helper on a goal by Carl Gunnarsson opened the scoring and his power-play tally just 32 seconds into the second period held up as the winner. Schwartz has been red hot lately, failing to record at least one point in just two of his past 11 contests. He has seven goals and seven assists over that span.
Jan 20 - 4:57 PM

Brian Elliott had a relatively easy night Monday, requiring only 17 saves in a 3-1 victory over the visiting Colorado Avalanche.

Elliott improved his record to 13-5-2 and his NHL-best goals-against average to a sparkling 1.86. His save percentage isn't too shabby, either, at .930. Elliott is now 5-2-1 in his career against Colorado. He had 27 saves in a shutout against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Jan 19 - 11:45 PM

Alexander Steen and his linemates continued Monday night to score at a rapid pace for the St. Louis Blues.

Steen notched a pair of assists in the Blues' 3-1 triumph over the visiting Colorado Avalanche. Steen, T.J. Oshie and David Backes combined for four points. Steen extended his point streak to 10 games (seven goals, 11 assists). Oshie scored a goal and has 16 points in his past 12 games, and Backes had an assist to extend his point streak to seven games (seven goals, seven assists). The trio, who make up the Blues' No. 1 line, have amassed 53 points in the past 12 games. The Blues are 7-0-1 in their past eight games and 5-0-1 during their seven-game homestand. Jaden Schwartz also had a big night for the Blues, scoring his 21st goal of the season and adding an assist as the Blues improved their record to 29-13-4. Carl Gunnarson (2nd) scored the Blues' first goal of the night.
Jan 19 - 11:35 PM

Chris Bulter will be a healthy scratch on the blue line for the Blues Monday night.

The Blues will continue to go with Ian Cole as their sixth defenseman which means Butler will continue watch from the press box. Butler hasn't recorded a point since scoring a goal back on December 30th and isn't worth owning in any fantasy formats.
Jan 19 - 6:58 PM

Joakim Lindstrom will be a healthy scratch Monday against Colorado.

Lindstrom had suited up in the last two Blues games but will give way to Dmitrij Jaskin on Monday evening. It's been a tough year for the 31-year-old Swede as he has just three goals and three assists in 30 games played to go along with a minus five rating.
Jan 19 - 6:56 PM

Dmitrij Jaskin will be back in the Blues lineup Monday against the Avalanche.

After sitting the last two games, Jaskin will be back on the wing with Jaden Schwartz and Paul Stastny to form the Blues third line. The 21-year-old promising star has four goals and three assists in 18 games this year but according to head coach Ken Hitchcock, he has to play a more physical game and almost be a role player in order to stay in the Blues lineup. He will take Joakim Lindstrom's spot in the lineup Monday.
