    • Ex-Blues Center Goc Returns To Germany

      News: Marcel Goc signed a one-year contract Tuesday with Adler Mannheim of the German Ice Hockey League.
      Analysis: Marcel Goc will return to his native country after failing to attract NHL interest following a nine-point campaign while skating as a fourth-line player in 74 games for the Penguins and Blues. At 32 years old, Goc's career in North America could very well be over.
    • Blues' Goc Scores In Win

      News: Marcel Goc scored his first goal as a member of the Blues on Tuesday against his old team in a 3-2 overtime win against Pittsburgh. He was plus-1 and added two hits and a blocked shot while winning five of seven faceoffs in the contest.
      Analysis: It took Marcel Goc 23 games with St. Louis to notch his first goal, which is one reason he has been rotating in and out of the lineup since the arrival of Oli Jokinen. Take note of the faceoff prowess, Goc is one of the NHL's best with a 54.4% success rate this year, which is key to his playing time as the season nears its end.
    • Blues' Goc To Be A Scratch Saturday

      News: Marcel Goc will be the odd man out when Olli Jokinen makes his debut for the Blues on Saturday against Toronto, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
      Analysis: Marcel Goc has just two points in 18 games with St. Louis and only six points on the season. On the other hand, he has won 53.6 percent of his faceoffs with St. Louis, so depending on what coach Ken Hitchcock wants from his fourth-line center, Goc could be back in the lineup regularly down the stretch.
    • Blues' Goc In Line To Play Tuesday

      News: Marcel Goc (face) is in line to play Tuesday against the Canadiens, Lou Korac of reports.
      Analysis: Marcel Goc was limited to just 6:51 of ice time in Saturday's game against the Penguins after taking a slash to the face, but appears to be fine. He's set to center the Blues' fourth line.
    • Blues' Goc Leaves After Taking A Stick To The Face

      News: Marcel Goc took a stick to the mouth Saturday and went to the locker room for treatment, the St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford reports.
      Analysis: He saw just four minutes of ice time before the stick to the face caused his mouth to bleed, and he exited the ice. Marcel Goc should be considered day-to-day.
    • Blues' Goc Picks Up First Point Since Trade

      News: Marcel Goc picked up an assist Thursday in a win over the Canes. It was his first point since being traded to the Blues. He was plus-1 with three shots and a hit on the night.
      Analysis: Marcel Goc is centering the Blues' fourth line and has played right around 13 minutes in his first two games with his new team. He has been a 20-plus point scorer in the past, but has just seven points on the year and the move to the Blues will keep him primarily in a checking role.
    • Blues' Goc Set To Make St. Louis Debut

      News: Marcel Goc, who was traded to the Blues on Tuesday, will be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Predators
      Analysis: Marcel Goc managed just six points in 43 games with the Penguins this season, and he figures to skate on the Blues' fourth line. It would thus be unwise to expect a significant uptick in production.
    • Pens Deal Goc To St. Louis

      News: Marcel Goc was traded to the Blues on Tuesday in exchange for Maxim Lapierre, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
      Analysis: It's a swap of depth centers, with Marcel Goc providing a dash more of offensive upside compared to Lapierre's more physical style. After compiling 25 points a season ago, Goc struggled to find his place on the Pens' checking line, contributing only two goals and four assists over 43 games. Don't expect his numbers to take off with the Blues, who are arguably even deeper at forward than the Penguins.
    • Pens' Goc (Illness) Expected To Play Saturday

      News: Coach Mike Johnston said after Friday's practice that he expects Marcel Goc (illness) to play Saturday.
      Analysis: Marcel Goc will need to take part in Saturday's morning skate before his return is officially verified, but that's merely a formality at this point. Look for him to center the Pens' checking line in Saturday's game against the Habs.
    • Pens' Goc (Illness) Practices Friday

      News: Marcel Goc (illness) participated in practice Friday.
      Analysis: Marcel Goc appeared to be a full participant in the session, seemingly putting him on track to play Saturday against the Canadiens. His availability should be verified when the Penguins hold their morning skate Saturday.
