Dmitrij Jaskin missed Monday's practice due to an illness.

It remains to be seen if Jaskin will be able to play on Tuesday. He has a goal and six points in 23 games this season.

Robert Bortuzzo sustained a lower-body injury on Saturday.

Although we don't know the specifics of Bortuzzo's issue, the Blues are listing him as week-to-week, so this is obviously more than a minor problem. The silver lining for St. Louis is that fellow blueliner Joel Edmundson (upper body) is ready to rejoin the lineup as Bortuzzo is forced out of it.

Joel Edmundson (upper body) will make his return to the Blues' lineup on Tuesday.

Edmundson missed roughly a month due to his injury. "I'm feeling good. This is probably the best day I've had so far," Edmundson said. "I've skated for three weeks now. I feel like I can jump right into the game." His return coincidentally corresponds with fellow Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo sustaining a lower-body injury on Saturday.

Ken Hitchcock's track record with respect to scratching top-nine forwards would lead one to believe that Jori Lehtera will play in the Blues' next game.

Hitchcock scratched Robby Fabrri for one game to get him going on November 10th. We expect that Hitchcock will put Lehtera back into the Blues' lineup Tuesday against Montreal. It's worked wonders for Fabrri.

Carter Hutton faced only 23 shots and let three of them into the net as the St Louis Blues lost a 3-2 contest to the Winnipeg Jets Saturday night.

The backup’s numbers fall to 2-5-0 with a save percentage of only .891 entering this game and he will take a slight downward adjustment. He is on a four-game losing streak, but there are some signs of improvement as he gave up only three goals Saturday night compared to four versus the Capitals on November 23rd and four against the Blue Jackets on the 12th.

Alex Pietrangelo had an assist on both St Louis Blues goals as they lost a 3-2 decision in overtime to the Winnipeg Jets Saturday night.

Pietrangelo’s assists were to Alexander Steen at the 5:16 minute mark and Dmitrij Jaskin’s at 7:26. This lifts him to nine assists for the season and 14 points—decent marks for a defenseman. Pietrangelo has scored points in four of his last five games.

Joel Edmundson (upper body) is not ready to return just yet, and won't play Saturday against the Oilers.

He's missed the last 11 games, but appears to be close to returning so stay patient.

Ty Rattie will watch Saturday's match with the Oilers from the press box.

Rattie has seen just four games of action this season with 29 shifts and just one shot on net. He no longer holds any fantasy value, unfortunately.

Nail Yakupov will tag in for Jori Lehtera against the Jets on Saturday.

This will be Yakupov's first game in nearly two weeks. He has just five points on the season through 16 games, with the most recent coming on Nov. 22nd, his second-most recent game.
Dec 3 - 3:31 PM

Jori Lehtera will be scratched against the jets on Saturday.

Looks like coach Ken Hitchcock is sending a message to the veteran, and his team. Lehtera has just seven points in 20 games this season, as his career points-per-game continues to fall off after a sterling rookie campaign.
Dec 3 - 3:30 PM

Joel Edmundson could be back in the lineup on Saturday night.

Edmundson took part in another full practice and he could be available for the game against Winnipeg. He's missed the previous 11 games because of an upper-body injury. We'll provide an update on his status if he gets back into the lineup.
Dec 3 - 12:04 PM

Jori Lehtera skated on the fourth line during Friday's practice.

There's a chance the team could decide to just make him a healthy scratch. "We need more," coach Ken Hitchcock said of Lehtera, who missed four games with a concussion earlier this season. "We need him to play back where he was before he went down with the injury. We need more." Lehtera has three goals and four assists in 20 games this season.
Dec 3 - 11:59 AM

Carter Hutton will be the St. Louis Blues' goalie on Saturday.

Hutton is making his first start since Nov. 23. He has a 2.98 GAA and .891 save percentage in seven games this season.
Dec 2 - 4:25 PM

Paul Stastny skated in his 700th career game Thursday night.

He has six goals and 13 points in 24 matches this season.
Dec 2 - 10:23 AM

Coach Ken Hitchcock felt the Blues needed a jolt down the middle, which is why he put Alexander Steen between Robby Fabbri and Vladimir Tarasenko on Thursday night.

"I think we need an upgrade at center ice," Hitchcock said. "We need to play better at that position, we need more production, we need more puck control and he's our most complete player. He's got a chance to really elevate our game by playing center ice." Steen has played center before and in his first game back from an upper-body injury he compiled three assists in a 5-4 win over Tampa Bay. The trio combined for nine points in the match.
