  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Expected to play Monday

    Tarasenko was cleared to play Monday against Nashville, Lou Korac of reports Sunday.

    Tarasenko was withheld from Saturday's contest against Toronto after missing the prior three games while in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. The 30-year-old has averaged 17:43 of ice time -- 3:03 during the power play -- and tallied 15 points over his last 10 appearances. Jordan Kyrou is likely to see a reduced role upon Tarasenko's return.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Tarasenko was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Thursday.

    Tarasenko will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before returning to action, so he'll miss Friday's clash with the Capitals at a minimum. The 30-year-old winger has been fantastic this season, having racked up 14 goals and 34 points through 34 contests, so fantasy managers will want to keep a close eye on his status ahead of Sunday's game against the Stars.

He's had little reason to be upset this year with 14 goals, 20 assists, 118 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 34 appearances.

    Tarasenko had a goal, a power-play assist and four shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Panthers.

He added a helper on Brayden Schenn's power-play marker later in the middle frame as the Blues overcame another one-goal deficit. St. Louis wouldn't trail again. Tarasenko came into this one mired in a 10-game goal drought, and he's now been held without a point in eight of his last 11 games but has still managed to produce seven points during this inconsistent stretch.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: More apples in the basket

    Tarasenko put up three assists Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He did it in under 16 minutes of action. The sniper's game has evolved this year -- Tarasenko hasn't scored a goal since Nov. 14 (seven games), but instead he keeps putting multiple apples in the basket. He has 19 points, including 12 helpers, in 21 games.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Two helpers in win

    Tarasenko collected two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    The sniper hadn't recorded a helper since Nov. 3, which was also his last multi-point performance. Despite his inconsistency in November, Tarasenko is still enjoying a strong overall start to the season with seven goals and 16 points in 18 games as he looks to put the shoulder issues that limited him to 34 games over the last two campaigns behind him.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Notches seventh goal

    Tarasenko posted a goal on six shots in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Oilers.

    Tarasenko now has seven goals through 14 games. He scored just seven goals over 34 regular-season games through the previous two seasons. It's too early to say that he's back to his former self, but he's averaging 3.8 shots per game while scoring on 13.2 percent of his shots -- his best rate since the 2016-17 campaign.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Multi-point performance in loss

    Tarasenko had a goal, an assist and three shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Colorado.

    Tarasenko assisted on the first goal of the game -- scored by Colton Parayko -- and potted the last himself, bringing the Blues within one goal with 3:59 remaining. Unfortunately for Tarasenko and his teammates, it was all Avalanche in between. After asking for a trade in the offseason, Tarasenko appears to have hashed out his off-ice differences with the organization and is thriving on the ice for the Blues, with four goals and four assists during an active five-game point streak.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Lights lamp twice in win

    Tarasenko scored two goals on six shots in Monday's 3-0 win over the Kings.

    Tarasenko's goals came in the third period after Ville Husso and Jonathan Quick posted matching donuts through two periods. The 29-year-old Tarasenko appears to be fully healthy for the first time in years. He's racked up three goals, three assists, 26 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in just five games. Time is probably running short to add the Russian winger off the waiver wire in fantasy as he has laid the foundation for a strong bounce-back season.

    Tarasenko recorded two assists and five shots on goal in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Kings.

    Tarasenko had a hand in two of David Perron's three goals in the game, both on the power play. The 29-year-old Tarasenko is showing no signs of rust after playing just 34 games in the last two seasons -- he's up to one goal, three helpers, 20 shots on net and a plus-2 rating in four contests. He'll continue to work in a middle-six role with power-play time.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Nets game-winner Wednesday

    Tarasenko scored a goal on a game-high seven shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    Tarasenko played an inspired game and ultimately reaped the rewards with his tally on a two-on-none breakaway in the third period. The Russian winger has collected two points, 15 shots on net, four hits and a plus-2 rating through three contests. His strong play Wednesday earned him a bump up to the second line with Brayden Schenn and Jordan Kyrou, who earned the assists on his goal.

  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Pockets helper Monday

    Tarasenko notched an assist, four shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 7-4 win over the Coyotes.

    Tarasenko has not lacked for motivation to begin the year, as he's up to eight shots on goal, a plus-1 rating and three hits in two contests. The Russian winger's trade request went unfulfilled in the offseason, but he'll have a chance to build some value if he can begin 2021-22 on the right foot. For now, he's skating on the Blues' third line with Robert Thomas and Ivan Barbashev while working with the top power-play unit.
