    Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Returning Friday

    Gunnarsson (upper body) has been deemed healthy ahead of Friday's matchup in Colorado. The former Maple Leaf will return after a five-game layoff, and will likely play on the Blues' second defensive pairing with Kevin Shattenkirk. Gunnarsson has only five points this season, but has posted a solid plus-11 rating while averaging over 17 minutes of time on ice per game.

    Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Won't play Wednesday

    Gunnarson (upper body) won't play Wednesday against the Red Wings, Tom Timmerman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Initial reports indicated Gunnarsson would return to action Wednesday against Detroit. However, St. Louis' general manager Doug Armstrong reportedly failed to activate the 29-year-old blueliner from injured reserve in time for Wednesday's contest, meaning Gunnarsson will have to wait until Friday's matchup with Colorado to slot back into the Blues' lineup. St. Louis will only have five defenseman in the lineup Wednesday due to the front office mix up.

    Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Will return Wednesday

    Gunnarson (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday against the Red Wings. Gunnarsson was placed on injured reserve just a few days ago, but the move was retroactive to Jan. 9, making him eligible to return when healthy. It appears that's the case, as he will take his place in the lineup for Wednesday's game, and it appears he could be replacing Colton Parayko, who is a game-time decision with an illness. The blueliner has just five points through 44 games, however, so ot much can be expected from him offensively.

    Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Placed on injured reserve

    Gunnarson (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, according to the NHL Media Site. Gunnarson remains on a week-to-week timetable, so it's not a huge surprise that he's been placed on injured reserve. The move rules him out for Monday's contest, but he can return whenever healthy since the team can make the move retroactive to Jan. 9.

    Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Out week-to-week

    Gunnarsson (upper body) has been ruled out on a week-to-week basis, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Gunnarsson suffered the injury during Saturday's game in Los Angeles, causing him to exit after playing just 6:12. With both Gunnarsson and Jay Bouwmeester set to miss extended periods of time, expect newly recalled Chris Butler to remain with the club for at least the near future.

    Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Notches two points

    Gunnarsson tallied a power-play goal and an assist in Sunday's win over the Jets. The defenseman typically isn't a high volume scorer or point collector, but Gunnarsson has gotten off to a strong start offensively, grabbing a pair of points in each of the last two contests. The 28-year-old had less than 30 points in the previous two seasons combined though, so this is likely a brief point streak rather than a sustainable uptick in fantasy value.

  • Healthy ahead of season opener

    News: General manager Doug Armstrong told reporters Tuesday that Carl Gunnarsson is now healthy, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson had been dealing with a groin injury that held him out of several team practices, but the 28-year-old defender is now reportedly healthy, which means he should be good to go for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Oilers.
  • Misses Wednesday skate

    News: Carl Gunnarsson (groin) did not skate Wednesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson sustained the groin injury in Monday's practice. The Blues' depth on the blue line has been tested in training camp so far, as veteran defender Robert Bortuzzo has been dealing with a lower-body injury as well. This Thursday is Gunnarsson's last chance to draw into a regular-season game before the 2015-16 campaign is underway. He should be considered day-to-day.
  • Day-To-Day With Groin Injury

    News: Carl Gunnarsson is day-to-day with a groin injury he suffered in Monday's practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson was originally expected to play in Tuesday's preseason contest against Dallas, but will no longer travel with the Blues to American Airlines Center for the exhibition. Gunnarsson, who tallied 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) in 61 games with the Blues last season, is expected to return to a second pairing role with St. Louis this season.
  • Blues' Gunnarsson Back In Saturday

    News: Coach Ken Hitchcock confirmed that Carl Gunnarsson (upper body) will play Saturday against the Blue Jackets.
    Analysis: While the return of Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) from a two-month absence Saturday will capture most of the headlines, Carl Gunnarsson's return is still of high importance to the Blues. With goalie Brian Elliott struggling in recent outings, having an accomplished shot blocker like Gunnarsson back in the trenches should aid the team's play in the net. However, from a fantasy perspective, Gunnarsson doesn't offer much to get excited about, as his stay-at-home tendencies prevent him from accumulating points with much regularity.
