Top Scott Perunovich News

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Game-time decision Thursday

    Perunovich (lower body) is expected to be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Islanders, per Lou Korac of NHL.com on Wednesday.

    Korac believes Perunovich is likely to play Thursday, which would probably result in the defenseman serving alongside Marco Scandella on the third pairing while Calle Rosen would be a healthy scratch. Perunovich, who last played Jan. 28, has 12 assists, 14 hits and 28 blocks in 31 outings in 2023-24.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Lands on IR

    Perunovich (lower body) was put on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Perunovich, who has missed the past seven games, can be activated when he's ready to return. However, a timeline for his recovery has not be provided. Perunovich has 12 assists, 23 shots on goal and 28 blocked shots in 31 appearances this campaign.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Considered week-to-week

    Perunovich (lower body) has been labeled week-to-week by coach Drew Bannister on Thursday, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Based on his designation, Perunovich will be out of action for at least the Blues' upcoming three-game road trip, though it could certainly be longer. Prior to getting hurt, the 25-year-old blueliner was rolling offensively with five assists in his last six contests, including four with the man advantage. Having said that, helpers will be the primary source of any upside from Perunovich considering he has yet to score a goal in 50 career NHL outings.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Won't play Tuesday

    Perunovich (lower body) won't be available to play Tuesday versus Columbus, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Perunovich is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury. He was hurt in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings. Perunovich has chipped in 12 assists, 23 shots on goal and 28 blocked shots over 31 games this season. Tyler Tucker is slated to replace Perunovich in the lineup Tuesday.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Exits Sunday's game

    Perunovich (lower body) won't return to Sunday's matchup against the Kings.

    Perunovich registered two assists, including one on the power play, in 16:14 of ice time prior to leaving the contest. It's unclear at this time if he will be available to play Tuesday versus Columbus. The Blues may opt to give him more time to recover during the All-Star break.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Provides power-play assist

    Perunovich notched a power-play assist and blocked two shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kraken.

    Perunovich set up a Robert Thomas tally in the second period. This was Perunovich's third helper in his last five games, though he was also scratched twice in that span. The 25-year-old should be able to hold down a third-pairing role with a spot on the first power-play unit as long as Justin Faulk (undisclosed) is out. Perunovich has 10 points, all assists, through 30 games this season while adding 23 shots on net, 28 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Helps out on power play

    Perunovich notched a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins.

    Perunovich had a shot tipped in by Oskar Sundqvist to tie the game at 3-3 in the third period. The helper snapped a three-game skid for Perunovich. He has six assists over his past nine contests as he attempts to hold onto a third-pairing role over Marco Scandella, a task that's likely to be harder now that Justin Faulk is back from a lower-body injury. Perunovich has eight assists (three on the power play), 23 shots on net and 23 blocked shots over 26 appearances this season.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Assists on both goals in win

    Perunovich dished out two assists in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Stars.

    Perunovich logged just 12:17 of ice time but managed to make a big impact with assists on both of the Blues' goals to help the team win its third straight game. The 25-year-old is skating on the third pairing and the second power-play unit when he's in the lineup, but he was a healthy scratch in four of the last six games. Until he cements himself in the lineup and picks up some more ice time, he won't be worth much fantasy consideration.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Posts plus-3 in victory

    Perunovich ended up with an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 road win against the Coyotes.

    Perunovich also had a plus-3 rating, two shots on goal and a minor penalty in his 14:06 of ice time across 17 shifts. After getting blanked across his first seven games, the 25-year-old rearguard has managed assists in back-to-back games. He'll look to push his points streak to three games when the Predators come calling Friday.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Grabs power-play helper

    Perunovich notched a power-play assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    It was the first point of the season for Perunovich despite having logged just 13:09 of ice time in Sunday's contest. The blueliner continues to see big minutes with the man advantage, assuming he holds his place in the lineup ahead of veteran Robert Bortuzzo.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Limited role in season debut

    Perunovich logged 9:44 of ice time in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Flames.

    Perunovich was a healthy scratch for the first five games of the season, but he finally made his season debut as the seventh defenseman Thursday. While he didn't handle much ice time, it's worth noting that the 25-year-old recorded 1:50 on the power play. The Blues likely won't send him to the minors because he requires waivers, but it doesn't look like Perunovich's ice time will increase any time soon.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Skates on top pairing in preseason

    Perunovich recorded two blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in the 2-1 preseason loss to the Blackhawks on Thursday. He logged a team-high 26:28 of ice time.

    With Justin Faulk (lower body) out, Perunovich skated with Colton Parayko on the top pairing and led the team in ice time. A dynamic playmaker in college, Perunovich has struggled with injuries through his professional career. He has impressed when healthy in the AHL, though. Through two seasons, he posted five goals and 42 points through 39 AHL games. It remains to be seen whether he sticks with the big club this year, however, as Parayko, Faulk, Nick Leddy and Torey Krug (foot) are locked into roster spots. Still, Perunovich's upside alone makes him worth a flier in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Inks one-year contract

    Perunovich signed a one-year, $775,000 contract with the Blues on Saturday.

    Perunovich's new deal is a one-way contract, which strongly suggests he's ready to make the jump full-time to the NHL. A shoulder injury limited him to 22 AHL games during the regular season, but he racked up 20 points in those contests and added eight points in 10 games for Team USA at the IIHF World Championship.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Off LTIR, sent to AHL

    Perunovich (shoulder) was activated from long-term injured reserve and assigned to AHL Springfield on Monday.

    Perunovich had one assist in two appearances with the Thunderbirds during his recently-completed conditioning assignment. The Blues also activated blueliner Marco Scandella (hip) from LTIR on Monday, so Perunovich will get some additional time in the minors. The 24-year-old defenseman had six assists, 14 shots on goal and 12 blocks in 19 appearances with the Blues during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Heading for conditioning stint

    Perunovich, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, was sent to AHL Springfield for a conditioning stint Sunday.

    Perunovich hasn't played yet in 2022-23 because of his injury, so this is a chance for him to shake off some of the rust. He had six assists in 19 games while averaging 15:27 of ice time with St. Louis last season.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Cleared for contact

    Perunovich (shoulder) is cleared for contact, Blues coach Craig Berube told Lou Korac of NHL.com.

    Perunovich hasn't played yet in 2022-23. It did look like he would probably miss the entire regular season, but perhaps his return will end up being significantly sooner than anticipated. The 24-year-old had six assists in 19 games while averaging 15:27 of ice time in 2021-22.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Making progress in recovery

    Perunovich (shoulder) has been cleared for light contact, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Perunovich will probably still miss the entirety of the regular season, but it's nonetheless encouraging to see him ramping up his participation in practice after undergoing shoulder surgery in early October. The oft-injured blueliner picked up six helpers through 19 top-level appearances last season.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Begins skating

    Perunovich (shoulder) has resumed skating, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Perunovich underwent shoulder surgery in October, so he's just beginning to ramp up activity. He'll still likely miss nearly all of the rest of the regular season, so fantasy managers in redraft formats don't need to track his recovery closely.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Officially on IR

    Perunovich (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Perunovich underwent shoulder surgery last week, so this is merely a procedural move. He's at risk of missing nearly all of the 2022-23 campaign while recovering, with his earliest return likely in April.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Set to undergo shoulder surgery

    Perunovich will be reevaluated in six months after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured left shoulder Thursday.

    Perunovich simply can't catch a break, as he's now been forced to undergo surgery in three consecutive campaigns to address different injuries, completely derailing the beginning of what appeared to be a promising future in the NHL. Given his expected recovery timetable, look for the 24-year-old defender to miss most, if not all of the 2022-23 regular season. With Perunovich out long term, rookie Matt Kessel may be tasked with taking on a regular role with the Blues immediately this year.
