Looks like Tarasenko is a player tonight. Will confirm with Hitch. #stlblues
Tarasenko was skating on a line with Jaden Schwartz and Vladamir Sobotka today at practice. It appears as if he will return to the lineup tonight after missing the Blues last 10 games with a concussion. Check back for confirmation.
Hitch said McDonald & Tarasenko will be evaluated in the morning to see where they are, leaving the door open for possible return Saturday.
Tarasenko has been out for the last 10 games with a concussion. Concussion's are touchy so it his hard to put a timetable on his return. There is a chance that he could play tomorrow but consider him questionable at best.
Vlad Tarasenko brought a bucket of pucks to the ice surface just to get feel for puck. No skating, just throwing some pucks at the goal.
This is the first time Tarasenko has skated since he suffered a concussion on February 20. Concussions are tricky so there is no timetable for his return but it is positive news that he was at the rink.
Tarasenko was hit hard on Wednesday and suffered a concussion. He has been placed on IR and like all concussions they are very unpredictable. It appears Tarasenko is going to miss at least a week but monitor his status in the next couple of days.
It's obviously only two games, but Tarasenko is currently tied with Hossa and Vanek for most points in the NHL (5).
The rookie Tarasenko has been the talk of the town in St. Louis. He scored two spectacular goals in the season opener and then added a goal and 2 assists last night. The kid is on fire and if he is somehow still available in your league, jump all over that and ride this streak.
