Harrold was reassigned to the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League on Sunday. Alex Steen suffered an arm injury during Saturday's win over Arizona, and an update isn't expected until Monday. The Blues will likely want to keep Steen off injured reserve unless he has a long-term injury, meaning that Harrold's demotion was likely made to create a roster spot should the Blues need to recall another forward in the absence of Steen.
Harrold was recalled from AHL Chicago on Wednesday. The Blues were in need of a seventh defenseman following Alex Pietrangelo's knee injury, and Harrold will fill that role. Harrold was a revelation for the Devils in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but his play never reached the same heights in the three seasons that followed. Pietrangelo will be out for at least three weeks, so Harrold could draw into the lineup at some point, but don't expect Harrold to be a factor in any fantasy format.
