Patrik Berglund signed a five-year extension with the Blues worth $19.25M set to begin with the 2017-18 season.

The former 2006 first-round draft pick has played his entire nine-year career in St. Louis. Now 28-years-old, the veteran pivot is on pace for his best scoring season yet. He has 17 goals (career high is 22) and 24 points along with 123 hits in 60 games. Over his 615 game career, he has 145 goals and 286 points planted firmly as a middle-six center. He also ranks seventh all-time in games played with the club.

Patrik Berglund hopes to re-sign with the Blues.

"I would like to still be a Blue," said Berglund, who can be an unrestricted free agent in the summer. "I think everybody in here and upstairs knows that I want to be a Blue, too. I understand the business of it all, so I just have to take it one day at a time until whatever happens. I'll just hope that we can agree on something. It's nothing that is stressing me out." He has produced 17 goals and 24 points in 60 games this season. Berglund has played all nine years of his NHL career with St. Louis.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kevin Shattenkirk vetoed a trade that the Blues had in place with another team.

Shattenkirk reportedly turned down a seven-year, $42 million contract from the interested club, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie, so the trade fell apart about six weeks ago. It's believed that the team was the Tampa Bay Lightning. Sources say that the Blues will shop Shattenkirk as a rental player, which will probably hurt his value in a deal. It will be interesting to see what happens with the trade deadline quickly approaching.

St. Louis has sent Ivan Barbashev to the minors.

He is expected to be brought back to the NHL after the Blues finish their bye week. Barbashev has two goals and one assist in 12 outings with the big club this year.

Magnus Paajarvi has been returned to the AHL's Chicago Wolves.

He posted two goals and one assist in seven games during his latest NHL stint. Paajarvi will probably be back with the Blues after the team's bye week.

Goalie Jake Allen turned in a strong performance in the St. Louis Blues' 2-1 loss to the visiting Florida Panthers Monday night.

Allen stopped 31 of the 33 shots fired on him by the Panthers but never saw the long slapper Vincent Trocheck got on net through a maze of players with 4.6 seconds left in the regulation for the Florida winner. The tough-luck loss leaves Allen with a record of 22-16-3. His goals-against average is 2.69 and his save percentage is .902.
Feb 20 - 11:10 PM

Center Kyle Brodziak scored the St. Louis Blues' only goal in a 2-1 loss to the visiting Florida Panthers Monday night.

It was Brodziak's seventh goal of the season. He scored it at 2:54 of the third period to tie the game at 1-1.
Feb 20 - 10:43 PM

Carl Gunnarsson will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Gunnarsson has rotated in and out of the lineup over the last seven games. He has just four assists and a minus-6 rating in 38 games this season. Nail Yakupov and Dmitrij Jaskin will also watch the game from the press box.
Feb 20 - 7:42 PM

Magnus Paajarvi will play on St. Louis' second line on Monday night.

Paajarvi will skate on a line with Patrik Berglund and Jaden Schwartz, which should boost his fantasy outlook. He has three goals and one assist in nine games. He's more of a daily fantasy play than a real season-long option.

Paul Stastny (lower body) will indeed return on Monday.

Stastny was sidelined for four straight games, but he was already regarded as probable for Monday's contest. He's projected to play alongside Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko.

Jake Allen will probably play between the pipes on Monday.

Allen was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good sign of who the starter will be. This would be his third straight start.

Paul Stastny is probable for Monday's game against Florida.

Stastny has missed four games with a lower-body injury but he is closing in on a return. The Blues sent Kenny Agostino back to the AHL Saturday which is a good indicator that Stastny should be ready to go Monday against the Cats.

Through seven games he had a goal and three points for the Blues. He has five points in 16 career NHL games. The24-year-old has posted 18 goals and 60 points in 48 games with the Wolves this season.
