Walked signed a two-year, two-way extension with St. Louis on Saturday, per CapFriendly. Walker has appeared in 25 total NHL games over the last four seasons, including eight games with the Blues during the 2020-21 campaign. He's a depth forward that has mostly been given a look in the bottom six when he's filling in for an injured forward. He should fill a similar role next season with St. Louis.
Walker was added to the league's COVID-19 protocols list Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Walker's addition to the protocols was overshadowed by that of teammate David Perron, who led the team with 58 points this season. Even if Walker is cleared before Monday's Game 1 in Colorado, he's not expected to crack the Blues' lineup.
Walker was recalled from the taxi squad Friday, according to CapFriendly. Walker has a goal and 14 hits through eight games this season. The 27-year-old has been a healthy scratch in all but one game since the start of April.
Walker was promoted to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly. Walker remains on hand as extra forward depth for the Blues. The 27-year-old will likely be included on the playoff roster. He has one goal, 10 shots on net and 14 hits in eight appearances.
Walker was assigned to AHL Utica on Wednesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Walker hasn't cracked the Blues' lineup since April 17 versus Arizona, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. He will, however, likely return to the big club once the NHL's roster restrictions are lifted for the playoffs.
