It sure looks like the St. Louis Blues are going to limp into the 2017-18 season (sometimes literally). The team announced that promising young forward Robby Fabbri will miss the remainder of training camp after injuring his surgically repaired left knee. The Blues say that they will re-evaluate Fabbri, 21, in 10 days.
Hockey’s training camps and exhibition games share a lot of similarities, big-picture wise, with other sports. The team announced unsettling injury updates for defenseman Jay Bouwmeester and forward Zach Sanford on Tuesday. Sanford is expected to miss five-to-six months after undergoing shoulder surgery.
Training camp serves as a time to evaluate fringe players, brief people on system tweaks, and maybe skate off a little bit of the summer vacation for the guys who aren’t in the best shape of their lives. The team estimates that he’ll miss a “couple of weeks” with a shoulder injury suffered recently in training […]
Robby Fabbri had a strong rookie season with the St. Louis Blues, but his sophomore campaign had its obstacles. According to numerous reports, the Blues have different plans for Fabbri when camp opens. St. Louis, a team that added Brayden Schenn at center with a big draft-day trade, will give Fabbri a look up the […]
When it comes to talented young defensemen, the St. Louis Blues don’t rebuild so much as they reload. A pair of 24-year-olds, Colton Parayko and Joel Edmundson, cemented their places as core d-men of the future. Jordan Schmaltz, the club’s first-round pick in 2012, made his NHL debut.
The St. Louis Blues have announced an agreement with a minor league team — just not in the American Hockey League. On Tuesday, the Blues announced a one-year affiliation agreement for the 2017-18 season with the Tulsa Oilers in the ECHL. “We are proud to extend our footprint to Tulsa and partner with the Oilers […]
After hearing development coach Tim Taylor sing the praises of a late-blooming defenseman playing college hockey in Alaska, Doug Armstrong went to see for himself. The St. Louis Blues' general manager and Taylor watched as Colton Parayko dominated a game at Bowling Green, and even then Armstrong didn't get his hopes too high. Just two […]
ST. LOUIS – The wait is over for Blues defenseman Colton Parayko. Just minutes before the team and Parayko were headed to arbitration, the sides came to a resolution on a new deal after announcing the signing of a five-year, $27.5 million contract for the restricted free agent ($5.5 million AAV). The contract will take […]
Plenty of NHL teams have dealt with looming salary arbitration hearings, but one big name remaining – literally and figuratively – is St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko. On the bright side, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports a divide that seems pretty moderate. Parayko’s current ask, according to Friedman: one year, $4.85 million.
HAZELWOOD, Mo. — It was the first day of prospects camp for the St. Louis Blues last week and setting up shop on the left faceoff dot was the 31st pick of the 2017 NHL Draft, Klim Kostin. Kostin, a big, powerful, imposing-looking 6-foot-3, 196-pound player with the raw ability of skill and size, was […]
The St. Louis Blues have signed Russian forward Klim Kostin to a three-year, entry-level contract. The 18-year-old was the 31st overall pick in the 2017 draft, and he may have been a steal considering he was the top-ranked European skater by NHL Central Scouting. Kostin was only able to sign with the Blues after his financially […]
Russian forward Klim Kostin is suddenly free to sign with the St. Louis Blues. That’s because Kostin, 18, has been released by the KHL’s financially troubled Dynamo Moscow club. His agent, Dan Milstein, tweeted Tuesday that an entry-level contract with
