Date: Team: Pos:

Dmitrij Jaskin, Magnus Paajarvi, and Peter Harrold will each be scratched from Friday's match with Florida.

Of the three only Jaskin has produced a modicum of fantasy value, posting 107 hits with 22 PIMs and 10 points in 49 games this season.
Feb 12 - 7:13 PM

Jaden Schwartz will make his long awaited return to the Blues' lineup Friday night against the Panthers.

Schwartz has missed the last 49 games because of an ankle injury he sustained in practice in late October. He's expected to skate to the left of Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko on the team's second line, but Schwartz won't play on special teams just yet.
Feb 12 - 7:11 PM

Brian Elliott is projected to play between the pipes on Friday.

Elliott has allowed just 11 goals in his last eight games. He has a 2.07 GAA and .932 save percentage in 28 contests this season.
Feb 12 - 2:18 PM

Jake Allen (knee) has been joining the Blues towards the end of their practice for several days now.

"Just following doctors orders and (trainer Ray Barile's) orders," Allen said. "It's going well. Just trying to get on the ice and get some agility back. I'm feeling on the upward swing, so we'll see where it goes from here. But it's good to get on the ice and get some shots again." Allen last played on Jan. 8. He has a 2.17 GAA and .924 save percentage in 33 contests this season.

St. Louis wants Colton Parayko to shoot more often.

"There's a lot of guys that can shoot the puck hard, but there's not a lot of guys that can really shoot it hard, and he's one of those guys," Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester said. The rookie defender said he is trying to get the puck to the net "as much as possible." Parayko has seven goals on 111 shots in 53 games this year.
Feb 11 - 9:56 AM

Jori Lehtera is projected to play between Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz on Friday night.

Coach Ken Hitchcock plans to reunite the STL line when Schwartz returns from an ankle injury, which should provide Lehtera with a boost. He has contributed seven goals and 24 points in 56 games this season.
Feb 11 - 9:48 AM

Peter Harrold has been called up by St. Louis.

The Blues wanted an extra defender with Alex Pietrangelo injured. Harrold has one goal and 20 points in 45 games with the AHL's Chicago Wolves this season.
Feb 10 - 6:08 PM

Jaden Schwartz was reunited with Vladimir Tarasenko and Jori Lehtera at Wednesday's practice.

He was activated from injured reserve and is set to return on Friday night against Florida. The STL line enjoyed plenty of success last season and coach Ken Hitchcock likes that fit for Schwartz in his first game back from an ankle injury. Schwartz isn't expected to get special teams work in his return, but he'll get his fair share of even strength playing time.
Feb 10 - 3:00 PM

Jaden Schwartz (ankle) has been activated from injured reserve.

This paves the way for his return to the lineup on Friday when the Blues visit the Florida Panthers. Schwartz hasn't played since Oct. 20 after he had surgery on his ankle.
Feb 10 - 11:53 AM

Brian Elliott allowed one goal on 33 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Elliott has just two wins in his last six decisions, but he's only given up two goals or more in one of those games. The 30-year-old also turned aside Winnipeg's first three shooters in the shootout, but he was finally beaten in the fourth round by Mark Scheifele. He has a 12-7-6 record with a 2.07 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage this season.
Feb 10 - 12:05 AM

Colton Parayko scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Parayko tied the game at one just 2:12 after Jets forward Bryan Little opened the scoring in the second period. The 22-year-old has seven goals and 20 points in 53 games this season.
Feb 9 - 11:56 PM

Robert Bortuzzo will pair with Joel Edmundson against the Jets on Tuesday night.

Bortuzzo has seen just 24 games this season, and hasn't played since Jan. 16th. That said he does have 42 PIMs and 49 hits this season, so he could be a nice plug tonight.

Dmitrij Jaskin will be scratched against Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

Jaskin has posted just 10 points in 49 game this season, but his 104 hits are something to consider if your league rewards such skills.

Brian Elliott will face Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

This will mark 12 straight starts for Elliott, who has been stellar for the Blues since Jake Allen went down. Elliott is 7-3-1 with just 19 goals against in that span. If that's not considered dominance, your standards are too high.
Feb 9 - 6:57 PM

Ryan Reaves will get back into the lineup on Tuesday versus Winnipeg.

He has been scratched for the past four games, but will get to play against a physical Jets team. Reaves has 131 hits in 42 games this year to go with two goals and 25 penalty minutes.
