Blues head coach Mike Yeo says he's heard good things about newly acquired forward Nikita Soshnikov.

The Blues acquired Soshnikov from the Maple Leafs earlier this week, but he's currently sidelined with a lower-body injury. "I’ve heard a lot of really good things," Yeo said. "I think it’s going to be a really good move for our organization just in terms of his work ethic, his skating ability, his ability to play on both sides of the puck. I think that, talking to some people and hearing from some people in Toronto, they actually really liked him. Coaches liked him." Soshnikov has no points and a minus-2 rating in three games this season. He isn't worth adding in any fantasy format.

Colton Parayko suited up in Friday's match against Dallas.

Parayko dealt with some tightness that resulted in him leaving Thursday's practice early. However, he was fine to play versus the Stars. Parayko posted three shots and two hits in 22:03 of ice time.

Jake Allen allowed two goals on 16 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Allen kept the Stars off the board in the opening frame, but he surrendered a power play tally to Mattias Janmark early in the second period. The Stars then went up 2-0 midway through the third period and never looked back. Allen has now dropped seven of his last eight decisions. He has a 19-17-2 record with a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage this season.

Brayden Schenn scored a power play goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Schenn finally got the Blues on the board at the 18:46 mark of the third period to cut the deficit to 2-1. Obviously, that's as close as the Blues would come to tying the game. The 26-year-old now has 24 goals and 55 points in 60 games this season. eight of his 24 goals have been scored on the man-advantage. Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko registered the assists on St. Louis' only goal.

Oskar Sundqvist will not play in Friday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Sundqvist missed Thursday's practice because of an illness, but he was on the ice for Friday's morning skate, which means he's a healthy scratch. He has no goals and three assists in 30 games this season. Chris Butler will join him in the press box.
Feb 16 - 8:19 PM

Friday's contest will be Jay Bouwmeester's 1,100th NHL game.

Bouwmeester is set to become the 186th player to reach that milestone and the eighth among active players. "It's kinda neat. It's another sign you're getting a little older," Bouwmeester said in reference to the milestone. "It's kind of like birthdays (where) after a certain point you don't want to know what number it is." Speaking of birthdays, Bouwmeester is 34-years-old so while he is getting up there in years, it would be shocking to see him stay in the league for another five or more seasons.

Jake Allen will play between the pipes on Friday.

Allen will be looking to bounce back after surrendering three goals on 22 shots in a 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. He has a 19-16-2 record, 2.74 GAA, and .908 save percentage in 40 contests this season.
Feb 16 - 2:23 PM

Nikita Soshnikov (lower body) is slated to join the Blues in seven to 10 days.

Soshnikov still has to get his work visa situation settled and be cleared by team doctors before he is available to play for St. Louis. He was acquired from Toronto on Thursday in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick in 2019.
Feb 16 - 11:29 AM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have dealt Nikita Soshnikov to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for a 2019 fourth round selection.

Toronto was at the 50 contract limit, so this trade gives the Maple Leafs some extra flexibility ahead of the trade deadline. He's been sidelined since mid-December with a lower-body injury, but he recently completed an AHL conditioning stint so he's probably good to play for the Blues. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 14 points in 70 career NHL games.

Zach Sanford (shoulder) has been taken off the IR list and sent to the minors.

Sanford underwent surgery in September and hasn't played yet this season as a result. Although he's missed most of the campaign, he'll at least get to engage in some worth with AHL San Antonio now that he's healthy.

Feb 15 - 3:42 PM

Tage Thompson has been sent to the minors.

Thompson has three goals and six points in 24 games with St. Louis this season. At the AHL level, he's scored eight goals and 18 points in 26 contests.
