The Blues have signed Paul Stastny to a four-year deal worth $28 million.
Stastny, 28, gets big money from the Blues after scoring 25 goals with 35 assists (60 points) in 71 games. Stastny heads to St. Louis where his dad played in 1993-95 and gives the Blues four very good centres.
Stastny has missed the last four games with a back injury, but will return tonight. Stastny will return to his regular spot between Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon. He has tallied 20 goals and 27 assists (47 points) with a plus-10 rating in 58 games this season.
Stastny (back) could be back in the Avs' lineup on Tuesday.
Stastny has missed the last four game after suffering a back injury on March 8. The Avalanche won three of the four games, but getting Stastny and his 47 points (20G / 27A) will certainly bolster their lineup. Monitor his status throughout Tuesday afternoon.
Stastny, who only played one shift on Saturday, is listed as day-to-day. The Avalanche will dress seven defensemen and 11 forwards tonight, with Nathan MacKinnon centring Gabriel Landeskog and Jamie McGinn.
The Avs won’t know more Stastny’s condition until Monday.
Stastny “tweaked” his back Saturday against the Blues. He missed a late November game at home against the Blues because of back spasms, but was in the lineup three days later. So, the hope is he’ll have the same fast recovery, but we’ll see.
Stastny has left Saturday's game with a back injury and will not return.
Stastny played just one shift before departing for the dressing room. The Avalanche announced that his return was questionable, but with just five minutes left in the third period, it is safe to say he will not be back. We will likely receive an update following the game or within the next 24 hours.
Stastny (ankle) will return to the Avalanche lineup tonight.
Stastny missed the last two games with an ankle injury, but will be back in the lineup tonight in New York. He has three goals and three assists in his last seven games and has a total of 16 goals and 23 assists in 49 games this season.
We won’t know until closer to game time whether Paul Stastny will be in the lineup for the Avs against the New York Rangers tonight.
The Avalanche did not have a morning skate today at Madison Square Garden, so there were no updates given on either player’s status, just that more would be determined once the team gets to the rink later.
Stastny (leg) "probably will play Saturday in Nashville," Patrick Roy said. "It's still day to day, but the target is Nashville. I could be wrong by one game."
Stastny will miss his second straight game tonight but could be back in the lineup on Saturday. The Avalanche are dealing with a lot of injuries right now, but Stastny is the biggest of them all. Monitor his status as Saturday approaches.
