Jordan Kyrou scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-3 loss to the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Kyrou scored the Blues’ first goal of the 2018 preseason which tied the game at one apiece midway through the second period. He then helped the Blues take a 3-2 lead on Patrick Maroon’s goal 3:23 into the third period. The lead did not last long as the Stars scored two goals to take the lead less than four minutes later. Kyrou, the Blues’ 2016 second round pick is looking to earn himself a spot on St. Louis’ opening night roster after collecting 109 points in 56 games with the OHL’s Sarnia Sting last season.

Carl Gunnarsson revealed that he had off-season hip surgery in addition to his knee procedure.

Gunnarsson said that his hip was bothering him before he sustained a tear in his left ACL. He won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's preseason contest, which isn't surprising following two surgeries.

Jake Allen (back) skated on Tuesday and faced some shots at the end of St. Louis' practice session.

Allen is making progress from backs spasms. However, he won't play in the Blues' first two preseason matches. Friday's contest may not be in the cards either, but Sunday could be a possibility.

Updating an earlier item, Robert Bortuzzo had an MRI Tuesday and his lower-body injury checked out OK, according to coach Mike Yeo.

Robert Bortuzzo missed the second half of practice on Monday.

Bortuzzo experienced some lower body soreness and sat as a precaution. He also went for testing to make sure it wasn't something more concerning, but it sounds like a minor issue.

Ivan Barbashev is more confident this year after he admitted to feeling nervous during the 2017-18 campaign.

"I would say h'’s got a pretty quiet determination about him now," coach Mike Yeo said. "I've seen that from him. ... He's taken this very serious. I think he understands it's a very important camp for him." Barbashev spent most of the summer in St. Louis to train for this season. He is one of 11 forwards in the mix for the final four or five spots on the roster and two of them (Nikita Soshnikov and Erik Foley) are injured.

Jordan Kyrou skated with Robert Thomas and Robby Fabbri on Sunday.

Kyrou replaced Dmitrij Jaskin, who was moved to a line with Zach Sanford and Ivan Barbashev. Coach Mike Yeo has cautioned everyone not to put much stock in any line combinations, but he liked what he saw after the change. "I thought he played really well today," said Yeo referring to Kyrou. "Not a whole lot was happening with that line before, so we made a little switch, to give Jordan a little life. I thought it helped out both lines, to be honest. It gave one line a little more speed and a little more skill and the other line, I thought they picked up their play and I thought played up more to their strengths after we did that." Kyrou is expected to get a long look at training camp for a potential roster spot.

The St. Louis Blues and Dmitrii Sergeev have officially parted ways.

The Blues placed the 22-year-old on waivers with the purpose of terminating his contract. Now that he's cleared waivers, he'll be free to sign with anyone. He had three goals and 22 points in 56 games with ECHL Tulsa last season.

Jake Allen (back) is expecting to be back on the ice sooner than he expected.

Allen is missing the beginning of camp because of back spasms, but he seems to be doing better already. "It's progressed way better than when it first happened," Allen said. "It's a lot better than I thought it was and I'm feeling really good right now. I've made some significant progress the last couple days. It looks like I'll be on the ice earlier than that." The 28-year-old had a 27-25-3 record with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage last season.

The St. Louis Blues have waived Dmitrii Sergeev with the purpose of terminating his contract.

The 22-year-old spent the majority of the last two seasons in the ECHL, where he had three goals and 22 points in 56 games with Tulsa last season. He also suited up in a pair of AHL games in 2017-18 with the San Antonio Rampage. Don't be surprised if he goes unclaimed.
Sep 15 - 12:21 PM

Jay Bouwmeester (hip) believes he's on target to be ready for the Blues' season opener.

Bouwmeester, who skated Friday on the first day of training camp, was limited to just 35 games last season. He played with a hip injury for most of the year until he has shut down by the Blues in early March.
Sep 14 - 3:10 PM

David Perron was on a combination with Brayden Schenn and Jaden Schwartz during the first line rushes of training camp.

There's plenty of speculation that Ryan O'Reilly will get to play with Vladimir Tarasenko, so there could be some competition to see who gets a chance to play with Schenn.
Sep 14 - 11:53 AM

Robby Fabbri has been activated from injured reserve.

Fabbri has been skating and training for weeks in preparation for the 2018-19 season. He will be a full participant at training camp. Fabbri hasn't appeared in an NHL game since Feb. 4, 2017 because of a knee injury.
Sep 13 - 4:15 PM

Nikita Soshnikov (concussion) will miss the beginning of training camp.
