Blues' Anders Nilsson: Receives qualifying offer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nilsson was given a qualifying offer Monday from the Blues, Dhiren Mahiban of The Canadian Press reports.

Nilsson's qualifying offer came as no surprise after St. Louis traded away Brian Elliott and will need a backup for Jake Allen. Acquired at the trade deadline, the netminder 10-12-2 for Edmonton and made one start and two relief appearances for the Blues. In total, the 26-year-old logged a .912 save percentage and will make a decent backup, although fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere for a consistent starter.

Blues' Anders Nilsson: Starts third period, gives up goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anders Nilsson relieved Brian Elliott at the start of the third period, saving 9 of 10 shots in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Capitals.

Nilsson hasn't earned a start since Jan. 19 (while he was with Edmonton), with his last win as the lead-dog coming back on Dec. 11. Needless to say, the netminder doesn't see much action unless he's pressed into duty. As a member of the St. Louis Blues , the 26-year-old has appeared in three games and owns a .902 save percentage. Don't expect Nilsson to make noise in the playoffs if he's between the pipes.

Blues' Anders Nilsson: Takes over in second period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anders Nilsson stopped 19 of 20 shots after entering at the start of the second period of Sunday's win over the Avalanche.

Starter Jake Allen suffered an undisclosed injury and had to exit after the first frame, paving the way for Nilsson to make just his second appearance as a Blue. The severity of Allen's setback is unclear, but Brian Elliott -- rather than Nilsson -- figures to take over the starting duties in his stead.

Blues' Anders Nilsson: Makes Blues' debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Nilsson entered Monday night's loss to the Flames after starter Jake Allen had allowed four goals in 17 shots. The 25-year-old Swede fared slightly better, giving up two goals in 14 shots while getting tagged with the loss.

This was his first game action since being acquired by the Blues, who were seeking an experienced NHL hand following a lower-body injury to Brian Elliott. Elliott has been on the ice recently, signalling a return is near, an event that will drop Nilsson from the roster. We suspect Allen will be back as the starter when the Blues resume their western swing Wednesday night in Edmonton.

Blues' Anders Nilsson: Called up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Nilsson was called up from Chicago of the American Hockey League on Saturday.

Nilsson was acquired from Edmonton on Friday and will serve as the primary backup to Jake Allen until Brian Elliott (lower body) is set to return. He takes the roster spot of Pheonix Copley, who was sent down to the AHL. Copley had been holding down the backup spot prior to St. Louis trading for Nilsson.
