The Blues acquired Carl Gunnarsson in exchange for Roman Polak and a fourth-round pick on Saturday.
Gunnarsson had three goals and 14 assists in 80 games with the Maple Leafs last season. He averaged 19:25 TOI playing on the top pairing with Dion Phaneuf. He will likely slot in on the Blues' bottom pair or on the second unit with Kevin Shattenkirk. He will be better off playing a reduced role in St. Louis.
Gunnarsson missed the last game in a half with an elbow injury, but will return tonight vs. the Hurricanes. He will be paired with Cody Franson on the blueline opposed to his usual partner Dion Phaneuf.
Gunnarsson (elbow) is skating with the team today, but is skating as an extra.
Gunnarsson is skating with Mark Fraser in practice which suggests that he is not 100% and likely will miss his second straight game on Thursday. Tim Gleason would stay paired with Dion Phaneuf if Gunnarsson can't play.
Gunnarsson will not face the Islanders tonight after getting hurt on Saturday vs. the Rangers. He is considered day-to-day, monitor his status on Thursday. Expect Tim Gleason to make his Maple Leafs debut.
Gunnarsson (upper-body) is not on the ice for Maple Leafs practice.
Gunnarsson was injured in the Maple Leafs 7-1 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. He played only 5:06 before departing for the dressing room and not returning. If he is unable to play on Tuesday, Tim Gleason is expected to make his Maple Leafs debut and could take Gunnarson's spot paired with Dion Phaneuf. If not Gleason, Jake Gardiner would move up with Phaneuf.
#Leafs have placed Carl Gunnarsson on the IR retroactive to Feb 1.
Gunnarsson has missed the last 3 Leafs games and will miss tonight as well. He isn't a very good fantasy option regardless. Unless he starts scoring like he never has in his career he will remain irrelevant in fantasy.
Carl gunnarson has a hip irritation that'll require on going treatment.
Gunnarsson missed the Maple Leafs last contest and will likely be out tonight as well. Gunnarsson has been logging 20+ minutes a game and has 1 G and 2 A in 7 games this season. He isn't a great fantasy option.
