    Blues' Scott Gomez: Placed on unconditional waivers

    Gomez has been placed on unconditional waivers. Gomez was waived by the Blues on Tuesday and ended up clearing, but evidently assigning the 36-year-old to the minors was not in the cards. "When we went down with all those injuries (early), he was good," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Tuesday. "It's not fair for him to come and play a role he's never played before. Hopefully somebody picks him up and he can play a Top-6 or Top-9 role and have that support. With Brodziak back in, and obviously (Patrik) Berglund coming back in, he's a player that would just be waiting for injury and that could sometimes be a long wait."

    Blues' Scott Gomez: Clears waivers Wednesday

    Gomez has cleared waivers, Renaud Lavoie of Montreal's TVA Sports reports. Gomez was more valuable to the Blues early in late October, when a number of forwards were bitten by the injury bug. Of course, even when he was on the ice, Gomez averaged just 11:15 of ice time and that made it difficult for the 36-year-old to retain fantasy value. St. Louis has the option of assigning him to the AHL, but it's worth noting that he's never been placed at that specific level of play.

    Blues' Scott Gomez: Has two helpers in win

    Gomez picked up two assists in the Blues 4-0 win over Nashville on Saturday. Gomez is nothing but a role player at this point in his career and will see very little time as either a top six forward or on the power play.

    Blues' Scott Gomez: Health scratch Tuesday

    Gomez appears to be the odd man out of the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Kings, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Gomez will take a seat with the Blues set to welcome back offensive stalwart Vladimir Tarasenko (undisclosed). Having recorded one goal, two assists and a plus-2 rating through seven games, Gomez is proving to be an adequate injury fill-in for the 8-2-1 Blues. But "scratch" is a nasty word in the fantasy realm, so consider alternatives until he can find his way back into the lineup.

    Blues' Scott Gomez: Delivers game-winning goal Tuesday

    Gomez put the puck past Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop on Tuesday night, leading the Blues to a 2-0 win. As a result of various injuries to the Blues' forwards, Gomez has seen an uptick in playing time recently. The 35-year-old spent just over 12 minutes on the ice Tuesday, which counts as bottom-six minutes but seems like a lot compared to the 7:14 he picked up in his Blues debut Oct. 17. While his best years are far away in the rearview mirror, Gomez does have the ability to pick up points in a hurry as he's had four campaigns of 70 points or more between the Devils and Rangers in his career.

    Blues' Scott Gomez: Impresive showing Saturday

    Gomez recorded an assist and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's win over the jets. Gomez received 9:39 TOI in what was his second game of the season. The Alaskan native earned a roster spot as a tryout in training camp and figures to keep geting playing time with talented rookie center Robby Fabbri on injured reserve with a concussion. Gomez can still get the job done, as evidenced by 34 points in 58 games with the Devils last season.

    Blues' Scott Gomez: Potential start Tuesday

    Gomez or Scottie Upshall may play in Tuesday's game for the Blues in place of the injured Robby Fabbri, Andrew Allsman of kmov.com reports. A Gomez start would be his first in a St. Louis uniform. The 35-year-old center may have a chance to prove that the seasoned player's NHL career is not ready to end just yet.

  • Signs one-year deal with Blues

    News: Scott Gomez signed a one-year contract with the Blues on Wednesday.
    Analysis: The 35-year-old Scott Gomez scored seven goals and tallied 27 assists in 58 games with the Devils last season. After signing at PTO at the beginning of camp, the veteran center earned his way to a two-way contract.
  • Gomez Signs PTO With Blues

    News: Scott Gomez accepted a professional tryout offer with the Blues on Thursday, Andy Strickland of FOX Sports Midwest reports.
    Analysis: After failing to garner a contract in free agency for the second straight offseason, Scott Gomez will again head to training camp on a PTO, as he did last season in New Jersey. Though he wasn't able to crack the Devils' Opening Night roster, he continued to work out with the team after the tryout period ended and was eventually signed to the team when injuries opened up an opportunity in late November. Gomez would end the season as one of the more productive contributors on the offensively challenged Devils, finishing third on the team with 34 points. The Blues boast a far deeper roster of forward talent, but with the news surfacing after Gomez's signing that Patrik Berglund would miss at least four months following shoulder surgery, an opening on the third line could exist for the 35-year-old.
