St. Louis will have the 29th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft

The selection was acquired from the Winnipeg Jets as part of the trade for center Paul Stastny at the trade deadline. The Jets were eliminated from the playoffs by Vegas on Sunday, which locked in the pick's spot. The Blues traded their first-round pick (No. 14) to the Philadelphia Flyers as part of the Brayden Schenn deal last June.

Jaden Schwartz's upper-body issue is a right shoulder injury.

Carter Hutton might find himself wearing a Detroit Red Wings jersey next season.

Hutton has spoken about wanting to be a starting goaltender next season but looking around the league, there aren't really any clear cut openings on any teams. The Red Wings have Jimmy Howard locked up for another year at $5 million, but could be a fit for Hutton. He played in 32 games this season, while posting a 2.09 goals-against-average and a .931 save percentage. It will be interesting to see if he could best Scott Darling's four-year, $4.125 million deal he got from the Carolina Hurricanes last off-season.

Chatting with his readers, Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post Dispatch has put the likelihood of the St. Louis Blues re-signing Dmitrij Jaskin at 90%.

"Well, it's either the Blues or Europe and I'd be surprised if somebody came up with seven figures for him to play in Europe." said Gordon. "So I'd put that at 90 percent. I could see his rights move along in a trade, if the right opportunity came along." Jaskin was just eliminated on Thursday from the World Hockey Championship tournament by Team USA. The 25-year-old forward notched four goals and seven points in eight games for the Czech Republic. Gordon finished his thoughts on Jaskin by adding: "Maybe a KHL team makes a pitch. But generally speaking guys with more scoring potential are getting those contracts. I believe he could make more money in the NHL as a checking line guy."

St. Louis draft pick Robert Thomas was named the OHL's MVP for the playoffs.

The Hamilton Bulldog was drafted 20th overall in 2017. He was dealt from London to Hamilton earlier in the season and had 11 goals and 30 points in 20 games after scoring 24 goals and 75 points in 49 regular season games. He is a top prospect and could crack the St. Louis lineup next season or shortly thereafter.

The trophy goes to the player deemed to be the most outstanding of the season. Kyrou had 39 goals and 109 points in 56 games with the Sarnia Sting. The St. Louis Blues selected him with the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Nikita Soshnikov has an offer from the St. Louis Blues, according to agent Dan Milstein, but he is considering returning to the KHL.

Soshnikov is eligible for restricted free agency this off-season. He had an out clause this year to return to Russia if he wasn't up from the minors by late November. Toronto traded Soshnikov to St. Louis in February and he skated in 12 games with the Blues afterward. He apparently intends to make a decision after the World Hockey Championship.

Dmitrij Jaskin notched one goal and one assist in the Czech Republic's 3-2 overtime win over Slovakia on Saturday at the 2018 World Hockey Championship.

Colton Parayko found the back of the net in Team Canada's 5-4 shootout loss to Team USA at the World Hockey Championship.

Joel Edmundson, who can become a restricted free agent this summer, might end up having to go through the arbitration process.

Edmundson earned $1.05 million in 2017-18 and he's due for a sizable raise after logging 20:44 minutes per game, but GM Doug Armstrong suggested that he isn't looking to give significant pay boosts to his RFAs this summer. "It’s a bad year to be a restricted free agent on a team that doesn’t make the playoffs," Armstrong said, "It’s hard to justify big raises and some of them are going to earn big raises and they’re going to have to go to arbitration to get it because it’s a difficult process to go to ownership and say, ‘Listen, these guys need to triple their money (but) we missed the playoffs.’ Maybe someone else has to tell us that. Maybe we can find a sweet spot that we can do it, but there’s some players that I’ve got a lot of respect for that I have to deal with this summer and I’ll show them the respect they deserve." That kind of statement could just be an early negotiating tactic, but it will be interesting to see what kind of contract Edmundson gets.

Kyle Brodziak is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Brodziak is coming off a strong season with 10 goals and 33 points in 81 games. At the same time, he'll turn 34-years-old in May and the Blues might ultimately opt to let him walk so that they can turn to a younger option in the bottom-six forward role. "Obviously I’m aware of that," Brodziak said. "We’ll have to wait and see. The plan is to take it easy the next few weeks and see what happens because I really don’t know yet." Being an older bottom-six forward is a tough place to be in as far as the UFA market goes, but given that Brodziak did well in 2017-18, he should be able to land another NHL contract.
Apr 22 - 10:45 AM

According to Hockey Canada, Vince Dunn (upper body) will not be able to play in the 2018 IIHF World Championship due to injury.

That's unfortunate for Dunn, who would have gained some valuable experience while representing Canada for the first time internationally. Dunn recorded five goals and 24 points in 75 games with St. Louis this season. He will use the summer to recover.
