  • Blues' Nail Yakupov: Not in lineup again Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/17) Yakupov was a healthy scratch for the second straight game Tuesday against the Senators.

    Yakupov was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but he has been a huge disappointment in his career to this point. He has just 53 goals and a minus-94 rating through 283 NHL games. Yakupov has really bottomed out this season with just six points, including zero on the power play. He is still just 23 years old with plenty of time left to turn things around, but it's start to look like he is going to top out as more of a third- or fourth-line winger rather than a superstar.

    Blues' Nail Yakupov: Inactive Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/17) Yakupov was inactive Thursday for the third time in the last four games.

    It's not happening for Yakupov, who's been given multiple chances to secure a larger role. There were available minutes for Thursday's loss to the Wild -- center Kyle Brodziak's foot injury has him out at least five weeks -- but AHL callup Ivan Barbashev started instead. That could be because Barbashev has more experience at center, but the fact that Yakupov is in a position to get beat out for the playing time is the main takeaway.

    Blues' Nail Yakupov: Healthy scratch Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/17) Yakupov was a healthy scratch for the second straight game Saturday.

    Yakupov was in the active lineup for six straight games before Blues coach Ken Hitchcock had seen enough. During his active stretch, which included ice time with the dangerous Vladimir Tarasenko, he made some positive plays, but Yakupov was point-less with four shots and a minus-4 rating. Dmitri Jaskin took his spot in the lineup again.

    Blues' Nail Yakupov: Impressing coach Hitchcock

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Yakupov has added "some structural discipline" to his game, according to Blues coach Ken Hitchcock, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Yakupov was in the active lineup for a fifth straight game Sunday, generating a scoring chance and setting up another for Vladimir Tarasenko against Anaheim. Hitchcock has rewarded the 23-year-old forward with an average of 18 shifts and 12:03 of ice time over the current five-game active run -- three more shifts and two more minutes of ice time than he was getting over his first 21 games played. While it's a positive sign that Yakupov has acclimated to his new team and he's skating on a line with Tarasenko, it hasn't led to scoring.

    Blues' Nail Yakupov: Top-six role Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Yakupov was active for the fourth straight game Saturday, skating on a line with Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko in the Blues' 4-0 win over the Sharks.

    With the Blues reeling of late, coach Ken Hitchcock shuffled up the lines Saturday, giving Yakupov an important role. He hasn't done much, fantasy-wise, during his four-game run -- minus-1 rating, three shots, two hits -- but the fact that Yakupov's been active means Hitchcock is pleased with his effort. However, turning effort into offense has eluded Yakupov, who hasn't played more than four straight games since Nov. 3. If he remains in the lineup for a long stretch, he'll have an opportunity to develop some rhythm, but Yakupov is someone to avoid at this point.
