The Blues re-signed Magnus Paajarvi to a one-year deal worth $700K.
Paajarvi, 25, serves as a depth forward for the Blues. He worked himself in and out of the lineup during the 2015-16 season, appearing in 48 games. The former 10th overall pick had just nine points (3G / 6A) in those games while picking up seven points (4G / 3A) in seven games with Chicago (AHL).
Paajarvi (upper-body) is expected to return to the Blues lineup on Tuesday.
Paajarvi has missed the last seven games with an upper-body injury, but is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday. Paajarvi skated on the Blues’ second line on Monday, so expect him to play with Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko. He has just five points (2G / 3A) in 32 games this season.
Paajarvi is week-to-week with an undisclosed injury.
Paajarvi suffered an upper-body injury in Sunday’s win in Los Angeles. Paajarvi will miss at least a couple of weeks and forces the Blues to recall Ty Rattie from Chicago. Paajarvi has yet to find himself on the fantasy radar, having recorded just five points (2G / 3A) in 32 games.
The Blues have recalled Magnus Paajarvi from Chicago (AHL).
Paajarvi has four goals and three assists in seven games with Chicago this season. He has enjoyed a nice start to the AHL season, so the Blues have recalled him to help their injury riddled lineup. He had one assist in 10 games with St. Louis last season.
The move to place Paajarvi on waivers opens the door for the Blues to keep all three goalies (Elliott, Brodeur and Allen) on the roster together for the time-being. Paajarvi has one assist and a minus-2 rating in 10 games this season.
Paajarvi will be back in the lineup tonight after sitting for the last three games. He has one assist in six games this season and is expected to skate with Alex Steen and Paul Stastny tonight vs. the Habs.
Paajarvi suffered an upper-body injury in Thursday's win over the Oilers. He was at practice this morning, but left early. Brendan Morrow will slide back into the lineup after being a healthy scratch last night.
Paajarvi was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but will get back in the lineup tonight. Paajarvi has six goals and four assists (10 points) in 42 games this season. He has played under 10 minutes in five of the last seven games, so his fantasy value is non-existent at this point.
The St. Louis Blues announced today the club has placed forward Magnus Paajarvi on injured reserve.
Paajarvi has no points and is a minus-1 through his first four games with the Blues. His placement on IR is likely retroactive to October 26th, which would make him eligible to return on Saturday vs. Tampa Bay - but that is not official.
Paajarvi missed Tuesday's game vs. the Jets and also missed Wednesday's practice with an upper-body injury. The Blues will decide tomorrow if Paajarvi will travel with the team to Florida for Friday's contest with the Panthers.
Paajarvi will miss the game against the Jets and is day-to-day after being checked in the offensive zone by the Predators' Victor Bartley midway through the first period on Saturday. "Magnus is going to be day-to-day. He won’t play on Tuesday and then we'll just evaluate him on the road trip and see how he feels," said Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock.
