  • Blues' Matt Kessel: Demoted to minors

    Kessel was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Monday.

    Kessel lost his roster spot after Justin Faulk (lower body) was activated off long-term injured reserve. The 23-year-old Kessel has managed just two points in 22 NHL games this season while averaging 17:25 of ice time. The blueliner hasn't been significantly more productive in the minors, having notched two goals and four assists in 29 outings with the Thunderbirds.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Activated from LTIR

    Faulk (lower body) was activated from long-term injured reserve Monday.

    In a corresponding move, Matt Kessel was assigned to AHL Springfield. Faulk is poised to return from a 12-game absence Tuesday against Winnipeg. He has accumulated two goals, 19 points, 90 shots on net, 77 blocked shots and 52 hits over 40 appearances this campaign.

  • Blues' Zachary Bolduc: Pots first NHL goal

    Bolduc scored the Blues' only goal Saturday in a 6-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    In his second NHL game, Bolduc scored his first career goal midway through the second period by taking a pass out of the corner from Brandon Saad and snapping the puck past Alex Lyon. The 17th overall pick in the 2021 Draft, Bolduc posted big numbers in the QMJHL but had only eight goals and 23 points in 48 games for AHL Springfield prior to his promotion to the NHL on Tuesday. The 21-year-old has talent, but this early into his pro career, he's likely not ready to make a consistent impact for the Blues.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Needed in relief against Wings

    Hofer turned aside 18 of 20 shots after replacing Jordan Binnington to begin the second period in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    Detroit grabbed a 4-0 lead in the first period to chase Binnington from the crease, and St. Louis never got back into the game. Hofer has started just one of the Blues' last seven contests, and the 23-year-old doesn't quite seem ready to push for the No. 1 job despite a .913 save percentage over seven outings since the beginning of January.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: Gets early hook Saturday

    Binnington allowed four goals on 14 shots before being replaced by Joel Hofer to begin the second period during Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    Patrick Kane set the tone for the afternoon by ripping home a one-timer just 33 seconds into the game, and Detroit built a 4-0 lead before the first intermission. Binnington was coming off a shutout of the Isles in his last outing, and his No. 1 job with the Blues likely isn't in jeopardy despite Saturday's stumble -- over his last 10 starts, he sports a .916 save percentage.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: Facing Red Wings

    Binnington will defend the road crease in Detroit on Saturday.

    Binnington was sensational Thursday, as he stopped all 38 shots in a 4-0 win over the Islanders. He is 6-3-0 with a 2.12 GAA and a .933 save percentage in his last nine starts, giving the 30-year-old a 20-15-2 record this season. He has a tough matchup Saturday against a Red Wings team that has averaged 3.46 goals per game, sixth in the NHL.

  • Blues' Robert Thomas: Three helpers in win

    Thomas recorded three assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Islanders.

    Thomas picked up two assists on a pair of Pavel Buchnevich goals 25 seconds apart early in the second period before adding a third helper on Buchnevich's hat-trick-clinching empty-netter in the final frame. The 24-year-old Thomas has points in four straight contests and 21 (three goals, 18 assists) in his last 13 games. He's up to 19 goals and 46 assists through 56 games this season.

  • Blues' Pavel Buchnevich: Hat trick vs. Islanders

    Buchnevich scored three goals in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Islanders.

    Buchnevich extended St. Louis' lead to 2-0 early in the second period before adding a second goal just 25 seconds later, beating Semyon Varlamov with a wrister from the circle. Buchnevich would then complete a natural hat trick with an empty-netter in the final frame to cap a 4-0 victory. The 28-year-old winger now has five goals and six points in his last four contests. Buchnevich is up to 22 goals and 46 points through 54 games this year as his value continues to increase ahead of the trade deadline.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: Shuts out Islanders

    Binnington stopped 38 shots in a 4-0 shutout win over the Islanders on Thursday.

    Binnington was stellar Thursday, turning aside 38 shots (including 16 on the power play) en route to his third shutout of the year. The 30-year-old netminder has been solid this season after a disappointing 2022-23 campaign -- he's now 20-15-2 with a .911 save percentage and a 2.85 GAA through 38 starts. Binnington could be back between the pipes as soon as Saturday on the road versus the Red Wings.

    Perunovich has missed the last seven games, but he'll return to the lineup versus the Isles. Perunovich will pair up on the third unit with Marco Scandella and quarterback the second power play.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: Starting Thursday

    Binnington will patrol the home crease versus the Islanders on Thursday, according to Lou Korac of NHL.com.

    Binnington gave up four goals in his last start -- the first time in eight outings that he has given up more than three goals. He is 19-15-2 with a 2.93 GAA and a .908 save percentage this season. The Islanders are averaging 30.1 shots on net, 20th in the NHL.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Game-time decision for Thursday

    Perunovich (lower body) is expected to be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Islanders, per Lou Korac of NHL.com on Wednesday.

    Korac believes Perunovich is likely to play Thursday, which would probably result in the defenseman serving alongside Marco Scandella on the third pairing while Calle Rosen would be a healthy scratch. Perunovich, who last played Jan. 28, has 12 assists, 14 hits and 28 blocks in 31 outings in 2023-24.
