The Blues signed Jaden Schwartz to a five-year deal wirth $26.75 million ($5.35M AAV) on July 15th.
Schwartz, 24, missed 49 games in 2015-16 after fracturing his ankle in October, but still finished with 22 points (8G / 14A) in 33 games. The injury was frustrating for his fantasy investors, who were expecting another 25-goal, 60-point season out of him. Schwartz comes into 2016-17 with that kind of potential and should be drafted as a 60-point player with the potential for 30 goals.
Schwartz practiced with teammates for the first time since fracturing his ankle in October.
Schwartz has not played since October 20th, but he finally returned to practice on Wednesday, which is an excellent sign that he could be back after the All Star break. Schwartz’s return would be huge for a banged up Blues team. His owned percentage has dropped to 49%, so he may be available in your league.
Schwartz underwent surgery for a fractured ankle and will miss 12 weeks.
Schwartz was injured in practice on Friday and will now miss 12 weeks or three months of time. This timetable would put Schwartz out until late-January which would likely see him miss 40 games. This is a terrible break for the Blues, who will likely move Robby Fabbri into the top six when he is healthy and could be forced to move some blueline depth to pick up a forward.
Schwartz (leg) went to the hospital for evaluation; will be updated on Saturday.
After being helped off of the ice at practice this afternoon, Schwartz was taken to the hospital to have his leg examined. This obviously is not good news for Schwartz or the Blues, who are expected to give a full update on Saturday morning. With Schwartz out and Robby Fabbri still sidelined, the Blues have recalled Ty Rattie from Chicago (AHL).
Schwartz (lower-body) had to be helped off of the ice at practice.
Schwartz reportedly had to be helped off of the ice by his teammates after crashing legs-first into the net. We saw Logan Couture suffer a serious injury in practice last week and it looks like Schwartz might be the latest victim of practice injuries. Stay tuned, but it doesn’t look good for Schwartz.
The Blues have sent Colin Fraser back to Chicago (AHL).
The Blues recalled Fraser for Friday’s game so that he could play vs. his former team in Los Angeles. Fraser was with the Kings from 2011-2014. He did not record a point and was a minus-1 in the contest. He gets sent back to the AHL to make room for Jaden Schwartz to be activated from IR.
The Blues have activated Jaden Schwartz (foot) from IR.
Schwartz has missed the last seven games with a right foot injury, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Sharks. To make room for Schwartz, the Blues have assigned Colin Fraser to Chicago (AHL). Schwartz has 11 goals and 16 assists (27 points) in 31 games this season.
Schwartz (foot) won’t play on Friday; could play on Saturday.
Schwartz was upgraded to week-to-week on Thursday and is expected to play tomorrow. The Blues won’t have a morning skate because of the back-to-back, but Schwartz will likely skate in an optional and a decision will be made after that.
Schwartz (foot) returned to practice on Thursday; has been upgraded to day-to-day.
Schwartz, who injured his right foot blocking a shot on Dec. 16 in LA, has been upgraded from week-to-week to day-to-day. Schwartz will travel with the team on their west coast road-trip and could play this weekend if all goes well. In 31 games this season, he has 11 goals and 16 assists (27 points).
It is believed that Schwartz suffered the injury while blocking a Drew Doughty shot in the Blues win over the Kings last night. He will be out until after Christmas. The Blues have recalled Dmitrij Jaskin from Chicago (AHL).
The Blues signed Jaden Schwartz to a two-year, $4.7 million deal.
Schwartz, 22, had 25 goals and 31 assists (56 points) in 80 games in his second full season with the Blues. The 2010 14th overall pick took a massive step forward last season and should be a clutch fantasy contributor this season. It took the Blues awhile to get him signed, but he will get a lot of time in training camp to get ready for the season.
