Maroon (upper body) is trending toward being available either Friday or Saturday against Nashville or Winnipeg, respectively. While the news effectively rules Maroon out for the next two games, it's certainly a step in the right direction to have a more definitive (albeit loose) timeline. The St. Louis native will be looking for his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign once given the all-clear and will likely bump Zachary Sanford from the lineup once activated off injured reserve.
Maroon (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Maroon had already been ruled out of the Blues' next two games when it was announced that he would return to St. Louis for further treatment Thursday, but he'll now miss at least two more contests, as he won't be eligible to be activated off IR until next Friday's game against the Predators. A more definite timetable for Maroon's return to action should be established once he's able to return to practice with his teammates.
Maroon has returned to St. Louis to undergo treatment for an upper-body injury and won't be available for Friday's game against Vegas or Saturday's game against the Sharks. It isn't clear when Maroon suffered his upper-body injury, but his return to St. Louis indicates he could be facing a long-term absence. Another update on the hard-nosed winger's condition should be released ahead of Monday's matchup with the Kings.
Maroon dished out an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights. Six of Maroon's seven assists have come on the power play, but he still doesn't have a goal on 20 shot attempts. His time on the man advantage is crucial since he's been working on the third line lately. Still, Maroon's been a well-rounded addition to the club with 24 hits as well through 11 games.
Maroon tallied seven penalty minutes and failed to record a point in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens. Maroon was largely ineffective Wednesday, apart from a causing an early-game stir by dropping the gloves with Habs defenseman, Jordie Benn. On the season, Maroon has tallied three assists and posted a minus-five rating. Perpetually limited due to injury, it's probably best to avoid the 30-year-old veteran when rounding out fantasy lineups.
