Kyrou was assigned to AHL Utica on Tuesday.

This is a temporary measure to make the Blues cap compliant without subjecting more players to the waiver wire. Kyrou had an impressive training camp, and he's expected to return to the team for practice Wednesday, and he could be in the lineup for the season opener against the Avalanche. The 22-year-old is expected to flank Tyler Bozak on the third line once he's recalled.
