  • Blues' Justin Faulk: On injured reserve

    Faulk (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday and is regarded as week-to-week, per Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

    Faulk hasn't been in the lineup since Jan. 23, so he can be activated whenever he's healthy. He has two goals, 19 points, 47 hits and 77 blocks in 40 outings in 2023-24. With Faulk still unavailable, Tyler Tucker might get some work with the Blues.

    Faulk has already missed three games, and it appears he'll remain sidelined for the Blues' final two contests before the All-Star break. The 31-year-old Faulk has two goals and 19 points through 40 games this season. He'll look to rejoin St. Louis' lineup when the team returns to action Feb. 10 in Buffalo.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Won't play Wednesday

    Faulk won't play versus the Canucks on Wednesday and is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Faulk dealt with a lower-body injury earlier in January, but it's unclear if this issue is related. Scott Perunovich will take Faulk's spot in the lineup versus Vancouver.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Adds assist in win

    Faulk posted an assist and four shots on net in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Capitals.

    Faulk has an assist in each of the last two games. The 31-year-old continues to handle big minutes on the blue line, averaging 22:17 of ice time this season while posting 19 points and 88 shots on net through 39 games. Faulk combined for 27 goals over the previous two seasons, but he's on track to fall well short of double digits this season, with just two goals thus far.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Taken off IR

    Faulk (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Friday.

    Faulk is set to rejoin the team against Boston on Saturday following his five-game stint on the shelf due to his lower-body issue. Even with Faulk coming back, the Blues opted to send down a forward, Jakub Vrana, in a corresponding move, which means the club will be carrying eight blueliners for the time being. With Faulk back, Scott Perunovich is a strong candidate to be relegated to the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Unlikely to play Thursday

    Faulk (lower body) continues to make progress, but he hasn't taken contact yet and is consequently not expected to return Thursday versus the Rangers, per Lou Korac of NHL.com.

    Faulk might still be an option for Saturday's game against Boston. The defenseman has two goals, 17 points, 45 hits and 68 blocks in 35 outings this season. When Faulk's healthy, he should resume serving in a top-four capacity and receive power-play ice time.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Remains unavailable

    Faulk (lower body) has resumed skating, but he won't play Tuesday against the Panthers, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Faulk will miss a fourth straight contest with his lower-body issue. Another update on the veteran defender, who's collected 17 points through 35 games this season, should surface once he's poised to rejoin the lineup.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Not traveling

    Faulk (lower body) will not make the trip to Carolina for Saturday's game versus the Hurricanes, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Faulk is expected to skate while the team is away and might be ready to practice Monday, which could open the door for him to return versus Florida on Tuesday. Still, that's a lot of ifs for fantasy players looking for some clarity on the blueliner's status. Prior to getting hurt, the Minnesota native recorded two goals and three assists, including two power-play points, in his previous seven contests and should offer decent offensive upside once cleared to return.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: On injured reserve

    Faulk (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    The move can be made retroactive to last Friday, which is when Faulk was last in the lineup, so the only contest he won't be eligible for is Thursday's game versus Vancouver. The 31-year-old has two goals and 17 points in 35 outings this year. When Faulk's healthy, he'll likely resume playing on the top four and receive significant power-play ice time.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Not expected to play Thursday

    Faulk (lower body) remains day-to-day and isn't expected to play Thursday versus Vancouver, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    The Blues are hoping Faulk will be able to resume skating within the next few days, at which point the team should be able to establish a more concrete timetable for his return. The 31-year-old defender has picked up two goals and 17 points through 35 games in a top-four role this year.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Won't play Saturday

    Faulk (lower body) will not play Saturday in Pittsburgh, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Faulk posted a minus-2 rating with four shots on goal in 23:28 of ice time during Friday's loss to Colorado. At some point he picked up a lower-body injury and will stay in St. Louis to be evaluated. The team should have an update on his status before the Blues' Jan. 4 matchup against the Canucks. Tyler Tucker will likely draw into the lineup Saturday in Faulk's absence.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Helps lift Blues over Blackhawks

    Faulk contributed a goal and an assist in the Blues' 7-5 win over Chicago on Saturday.

    Faulk's marker late in the third period put St. Louis up 6-5. It was the defenseman's first game-winning goal of the season and the 32nd of his career. That puts him in a tie with Kris Letang for 22nd place on the all-time GWG list among defensemen. In 2023-24, Faulk has supplied two goals and 17 points in 33 outings. The 31-year-old has been particularly effective recently, collecting two goals and five points over his last five appearances.

    Faulk scored a goal and fired four shots on net across 22:36 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Lightning.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Two helpers in win

    Faulk recorded a pair of assists in Thursday's 4-2 win over Ottawa.

    Faulk set up Robert Thomas on a breakaway with a stretch pass in the first period before assisting Thomas again in the second. It's Faulk's second multi-point game this season -- he'd been held to just two points over his previous 10 contests. The 31-year-old blueliner has still yet to score a goal this season. He's up to 14 assists with a plus-3 rating, 61 blocked shots and 36 hits through 29 games.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Garners helper

    Faulk logged an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Faulk has slowed down a bit with just two assists and a minus-5 rating over his last seven contests. He opened November with nine assists over 11 games.

  • Blues' Justin Faulk: Still no goals this year

    Faulk posted an assist, a shot on net and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Sabres.

    Faulk posted 11 goals last season and 16 goals the season before, but he has yet to light the lamp this year. However, Faulk has posted 11 assists -- all at even strength -- through 22 games while firing 37 shots on net and posting a plus-4 rating. The 31-year-old blueliner is handling plenty of ice time while skating on the second power-play unit, so we should expect the goals to come at some point.

    Faulk logged an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Sharks.
