Blues' Vadim Zherenko: Returned to AHL
Zherenko was assigned to AHL Springfield on Friday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blues' Jordan Binnington: Sharp in season finale
Binnington allowed one goal on 34 shots in Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Stars.
Binnington was solid Thursday, stopping 33 of 34 shots and blanking Dallas until the third period. However, St. Louis couldn't get anything going on offense, eventually falling 1-0. The 29-year-old Binnington finishes an up-and-down season 27-27-6 with an .894 save percentage and a 3.31 GAA.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Hugh McGing: Returns to AHL
McGing was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Thursday.
McGing made his NHL debut Wednesday, failing to record a fantasy-relevant stat in 9:37 of ice time versus the Stars. The 24-year-old winger will have to wait until 2023-24 to get another look in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Justin Faulk: Not letting up at finish line
Faulk recorded an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.
The Blues will not be in the playoffs, but Faulk's been playing like everything is on the line. He's popped off based on a four-game point streak comprised of a goal and five assists, and that's helped the veteran blueliner establish a new career high with 50 points (11 goals, 39 assists) through 81 contests. Faulk remains a fine complementary option to the league's elite cast of defensemen, and there's plenty of significance in the 112 hits and 138 blocked shots that he's racked up this season....

Blues' Jordan Kyrou: Nabs helper in loss
Kyrou picked up an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.
The Blues wrap up their season Thursday, which is a rematch against the Stars, but this time it'll be a road clash. Kyrou has 37 goals and 36 assists, making it extremely likely that he'll finish with the team lead in goals and total points. Kyrou's minus-37 rating is a bit of an eyesore, but that stat generally holds minimal significance in fantasy hockey, and his 23 power-play points needs to be taken into consideration as well....

Blues' Joel Hofer: Returning to AHL
Hofer will be reassigned to AHL Springfield on Thursday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Hofer gave up five goals on 37 shots in a loss to the Stars on Wednesday, which will be his last NHL outing of the season. He went 3-1-1 in six appearances, allowing 17 goals in a solid but unremarkable showing this year. Hofer will likely have a chance to win the backup job in training camp next fall.... See More ...

Blues' Vadim Zherenko: Will back up Thursday
Zherenko will be recalled from AHL Springfield to back up Jordan Binnington in Thursday's game versus the Stars, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Zherenko will likely continue to wait for his NHL debut, as Jordan Binnington will start the Blues' season finale. Joel Hofer will be reassigned to Springfield.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Robert Thomas: Two points in Wednesday's loss
Thomas had a goal and a power-play assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.
Thomas helped out on a Jakub Vrana tally, then lit the lamp himself to tie the score at 2-2 with 20 seconds left in the first period. It was all Stars after that, though. With one game left on the Blues' schedule, Thomas has 18 goals and 47 assists in 72 appearances. Thomas played 19:44 in the game, so it appears he's behind the upper-body injury that recently sidelined him for five contests.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Joel Hofer: Gives up five again
Hofer allowed five goals on 37 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.
Hofer was handed his first regulation loss of the season by the surging Stars, falling to 3-1-1 in six starts. He allowed five goals in his previous start as well but didn't wind up with a decision in that one. Hofer provided a spark for a while, but his last couple outings suggest the 22-year-old netminder may need more seasoning in the AHL. Jordan Binnington is expected to start St. Louis' season finale Thursday against these same Stars.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Jordan Binnington: Starting season finale
Binnington will patrol the road crease during Thursday's season finale against Dallas, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Joel Hofer will get the nod for Wednesday's home game against the Stars, with Binnington getting the start on the road in the second half of back-to-back contests versus Dallas on Thursday. Binnington wasn't great in his last appearance Saturday against the Wild, surrendering four goals on 29 shots en route to a 5-3 defeat. He'll attempt to end the season on a high note by shooting for a win in a road matchup with a Stars squad that's 21-10-9 at home this year.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Joel Hofer: Slated to start
Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Hofer was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, putting him on track to guard the home goal versus the Stars on Wednesday.
Hofer has been pretty solid during his limited time in the NHL this season, going 3-0-1 while posting a respectable 2.79 GAA and .915 save percentage through five games. He'll try to secure his fourth win of the year in a home matchup with a red-hot Dallas team that's won four straight games.... See More ... See Less
