Jaden Schwartz didn't take part in Monday's practice because of food poisoning.

The Blues host Chicago on Wednesday, so there is time for Schwartz to recover and not miss any game action. He has produced two goals and six assists in six games this season.

Alexander Steen (hand) was on the ice for Monday's practice.

Coach Mike Yeo isn't sure if Steen will be available to play Wednesday night yet. The Blues still have to see how he feels before the contest and we'll keep you posted on Steen's status.
Oct 16 - 2:11 PM

Jay Bouwmeester (ankle) hasn't resumed skating yet.

Coach Mike Yeo said the veteran defenseman isn't behind schedule in his recovery, but it's still unclear when he will be ready to make his season debut.

Jaden Schwartz registered an assist in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

Schwartz has recorded a point in five of the Blues' six games this season. He's got two goals and eight points already after finishing 2016-17 with 55 points in 78 contests.
Oct 15 - 6:27 AM

Jake Allen allowed two goals on 27 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Allen blanked the Bolts in the first period, but he gave up a power play goal to Tyler Johnson midway through the second frame. He also allowed a goal to Nikita Kucherov early in the third frame to go up 2-0. Allen won his first three games of the season, but he's dropped back-to-back decisions. He has a 3-2-0 record with a 2.96 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season.
Oct 14 - 11:15 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tarasenko cut the deficit to 2-1 with under four minutes remaining in regulation, but that's as close as the Blues would come to tying the game. The Russian sniper finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 19:51 of ice time. Tarasenko now has four goals and two assists in six games this season.
Oct 14 - 11:02 PM

Wade Megan will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This will be his third consecutive game in the press box. He has no goals or points in one game this season. Nate Prosser and Chris Thorburn will also watch the game from the press box.

Jake Allen was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate for the Blues, indicating he will likely get the start in goal against the Lightning.

It will mark the 5th start of the season for Allen, who sports a 3-1-0 record with a 3.17 goals against average and .915 save percentage. In three career games against the Lightning, he has a 2-1-0 record with a 2.69 goals against average and a .904 save percentage. Fire him up in your lineup.

Samuel Blais will make his NHL debut Saturday.

Blais, who was a sixth-round pick of the Blues during the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, was called up after picking up four points in two AHL games this season. The Blues are hurting up top, with injuries to Fabbri, Berglund, Sanford and Steen. Blais is a talented forward but shouldn't be picked up in fantasy leagues at this time.

Despite scoring his first career goal on Thursday, Vince Dunn is still adjusting to life in the NHL.

"You want to create the offense, but if you mess up, there’s a pretty good chance it might go in the back of your net," Dunn said. "I’m trying to take care of defense first and now I’m starting to find more opportunities to jump into the play and I’m getting more comfortable with making plays with the puck. … I just want to focus on my defense. I know if I get the puck I’m going to make the right play 90 percent of the time. I’m just trying to think defense first. When the offensive chances are there, I’ve got to make a play, got to jump in the rush." Dunn probably won't have any fantasy value this year, but he could be a solid puck-moving defenseman down the line. He's someone to keep an eye on in dynasty leagues.
Oct 14 - 10:49 AM

Samuel Blais has been summoned by the St. Louis Blues.

Blais has three goals and four points in two AHL games this season. He might make his NHL debut on Saturday and is worth keeping an eye on given his offensive potential.
Oct 13 - 1:07 PM

Tage Thompson has been reassigned to AHL San Antonio.

Thompson has no points and a minus-three rating in four games with the Blues this season. This will give him a chance to play a bigger role with the AHL team, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him recalled later in the campaign.
Oct 13 - 1:06 PM

Alex Pietrangelo extended his point streak to five consecutive contests on Thursday night.

Pietrangelo earned two assists in a 5-2 loss to Florida. He has generated two goals and six helpers during his red-hot start to the year.
Oct 13 - 10:56 AM

Paul Stastny opened the scoring in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Florida.

Stastny got his second goal of the season 74 seconds into the second period, but the Panthers scored the next five markers to give St. Louis a loss for the first time this year. Stastny has six points in five matches on the team's top line.
Oct 13 - 10:53 AM

Alexander Steen (hand) won't be available to play Saturday.

It was hoped that Steen would be able to join the Blues on the road, but that won't happen. "He's not (here), but he had a good day yesterday," coach Mike Yeo said. "So we'll just keep going here. He's definitely getting closer. He's inching along. He's out until the end of this trip."
