  • Schwarz heading back to Europe

    News: Adn.com reports that Blues goalie prospect Marek Schwarz, a 2004 first-round pick, is returning to his native Czech Republic, according to Alaska Aces (ECHL) coach Keith McCambridge.
    Analysis: Schwarz, who spent a couple stints with the Aces last season and went 2-1-1 this season with a 3.15 goals-against average and .904 save percentage, becomes a free agent at the end of the season. He struggled in Peoria (AHL) this season, going 4-4-0 with a 3.56 goals-against average and .868 save percentage. Schwarz also got a little time with the Blues earlier this season, but was at best fourth on the organizational depth chart. Now that Schwarz is overseas, he shouldn't be held onto in long-term keeper leagues.
  • Schwarz back in the minors

    News: The Blues recalled goalie Chris Holt from Peoria of the AHL Friday and sent goalie Marek Schwarz down to the farm team.
    Analysis: Schwarz, 22, appeared in two games for the Blues -- both in a backup role. The Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic native was originally drafted as the Blues first round selection, 17th overall in the 2004 Entry Draft. He is nothing more than organizational depth at this point in his career and shouldn't be owned outside the deepest of long-term keeper leagues.
  • Schwarz replaces injured Bishop

    News: Former Maine star Ben Bishop made 12 saves in his first NHL start before leaving with an undisclosed lower-body injury in the St. Louis Blues' 4-0 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night. Bishop, a St. Louis native, left with 15:27 to play. He was replaced by Marek Schwarz, recalled earlier in the day from Peoria of the AHL. Starter Manny Legace missed the game after straining a hip flexor in a loss to Los Angeles on Friday night, and regular backup Chris Mason had an appendectomy last week. Schwarz stopped all five shots that came his way.
    Analysis: The Blues recalled Schwarz after Legace's bizarre injury in which he hurt himself stepping onto the carpet used for Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was on hand Friday to drop the ceremonial puck. Schwarz, 22, is 0-1 with an .839 save percentage at Peoria. He was a first-round pick in the 2004 draft. Schwarz has little to no Fantasy value at this time.
  • Schwarz already back in minors

    News: The St. Louis Blues switched backup goalies on Sunday, recalling rookie Ben Bishop from Peoria of the American Hockey League and assigning Marek Schwarz to Peoria. The Blues' regular backup, Chris Mason, is expected to be out two weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy Friday.
    Analysis: Schwarz, 22, is 0-1 with an .839 save percentage at Peoria. He was a first-round pick in the 2004 draft. He was recalled Friday to backup Manny Legace on Saturday against the Blackhawks, but didn't get into the game. Schwarz has little to no Fantasy value at this time.
  • Schwarz added to Blues bench

    News: Blues G Chris Mason had an emergency appendectomy early Friday morning and is expected to miss two weeks. The Blues recalled G Marek Schwarz from AHL Peoria. Schwarz was 0-1.
    Analysis: Schwarz will spend time as a backup to Manny Legace and might only see action if Legace is injured or is struggling. Schwarz has little to no Fantasy value at this time.
  • Blues send down goalie Schwarz

    News: The St. Louis Blues assigned goaltender Marek Schwarz to the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League. Schwarz was up with the club for the game against Chicago when he played 39 minutes and allowed five goals on 13 shots.
    Analysis: The 21-year-old Schwarz has played in 18 games with the Rivermen this season, posting an 8-6-2 record along with a .900 save percentage and a 2.37 goals against average. Schwarz is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game while up in the pros.
  • Schwarz steps in for hurt Legace

    News: St. Louis starting goalie Manny Legace, who had been named to the Western Conference All-Star team last week, left Wednesday's game against Chicago after the first period with an injured right arm. Legace stopped all seven shots he faced in the first, including several tough chances. Marek Schwarz replaced him to start the second period and made only eight saves, giving up five goals. St. Louis coach Andy Murray pulled Schwarz for an extra attacker with 6:50 left. Patrick Kane scored an empty-net goal with 5:22 left. Schwarz returned after the goal.
    Analysis: Schwarz is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game while up in the pros.
  • Toivonen sent down, Schwarz called up

    News: The St. Louis Blues assigned G Hannu Toivonen to the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League on Monday to get some playing time, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Marek Schwarz was called up to take his place.
    Analysis: Toivonen wasn't playing much lately, with Manny Legace suddenly playing at an All-Star level, so the Blues would clearly rather him get some playing time than sit on a bench. Hold onto him for now if you have the roster space, as he will likely be back and we all know Legace might not play this hot forever.
  • Schwarz makes first 2007-08 outing

    News: St. Louis goalie Hannu Toivonen faced only eight shots in the first period but was blitzed in the second period during Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Avalanche. He allowed the five goals on 15 shots and was replaced by Marek Schwarz to start the third period. Toivonen returned at 3:05 of the third period after Doug Weight scored his seventh goal 24 seconds into the third. "We didn't give Hannu a lot of help back there, and the game was back in reach, so we wanted to show him that we still believe in him," Blues head coach Andy Murray said. Schwarz made three saves and allowed one goal in 10:43 of ice time.
    Analysis: Schwarz was only recalled Thursday because Manny Legace went on injured reserve. It has been almost a year since he made an appearance before going in net Sunday. He will be headed back to the AHL as soon as Legace is healthy. Schwarz is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game while up in the pros.
  • Blues recall G Schwarz

    News: The Blues placed G Manny Legace on injured reserve after tweaking his right knee in warmups on Tuesday in Calgary, according to NHL.com. St. Louis recalled goaltender Marek Schwarz from Peoria (AHL) to take his roster spot. Hannu Toivonen assumes the role of starting goaltender while Legace is out of action.
    Analysis: Schwarz, 21, posted a 4-3-3 record, a .900 save percentage and 2.30 GAA average while with Peoria. He made his NHL debut last season with the Blues on Dec. 12, 2006 vs. Chicago. He is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game while up in the pros.
