  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Tallies in loss

    Kostin scored a goal, doled out four hits and blocked two shots in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Devils.

    Kostin got the Blues on the board at 15:37 of the first period. The 22-year-old hadn't scored since his season debut when he potted a pair versus the Coyotes on Oct. 18.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Slides helper Monday

    Kostin logged an assist and two hits in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Flames.

    Kostin snapped a 10-game point drought with his helper on Tyler Bozak's first-period marker. That cold spell dated back to Nov. 22 for Kostin, who missed time with an upper-body injury and spent time with AHL Springfield during that stretch. The 22-year-old has six points, 24 shots on net, 74 hits, 14 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 28 games this season as he tries to establish himself as an everyday NHLer.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Recalled by Blues

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Off injured reserve

    Kostin (upper body) has been activated off injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    With his activation, Kostin appears set to get back in the lineup against the Oilers on Wednesday. In three games while on a conditioning assignment with AHL Springfield, the 22-year-old center notched a pair of helpers, two PIM and a plus-2 rating. Despite his return to action, the Russian shouldn't be expected to offer more than low-end fantasy value given his limited minutes (9:30 per game).

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Headed out for conditioning stint

    Kostin (upper body) will join AHL Springfield on a conditioning assignment, the team announced Friday.

    Kostin has missed the last 10 games for the Blues while recovering from his upper-body injury. With Thunderbirds will be in action both Friday and Saturday against AHL Hershey and Hartford, respectively, so Klostin could play in both games before the Blues' Sunday's matinee with Winnipeg.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: On long-term injured reserve

    The Blues placed Kostin (upper body) on long-term injured reserve Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    The forward will miss no fewer than 10 games with the upper-body injury, which forced his exit from Saturday's game against Columbus. Thus, the soonest he could return will be Dec. 21. Kostin has tallied a pair of goals and three assists in 18 games this season.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Will not return Saturday

    Kostin (upper body) won't return to the lineup Saturday versus the Blue Jackets, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    The Blues' forward depth will be tested Saturday, as David Perron (upper body) is also out. Kostin's next chance to return will be Tuesday versus the Lightning, but there's been no timeline given yet. More information on Kostin's status should surface Sunday if the Blues hold a practice session.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Dealing with injury

    Kostin is dealing with an upper-body injury and did not play Friday against Chicago, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Slides helper

    Kostin recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Kostin helped out on an all-Russian goal, sending a pass to Ivan Barbashev, who then set up Pavel Buchnevich's second-period goal. The assist snapped a four-game point drought for Kostin, who now has two goals and two helpers in eight contests. The 22-year-old winger has added 12 shots, eight PIM and 27 hits in a bottom-six role.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Adds helper in win

    Kostin notched an assist and four hits in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Kings.

    Kostin had a hand in the second of David Perron's three goals in the contest. Despite a first-line assignment at even strength, Kostin's overall usage is more representative of a bottom-six forward. He has two goals, one assist, six shots on net, 12 hits and four PIM through three contests, but he's likely just keeping a seat warm for Brandon Saad (COVID-19 protocols). When the Blues' lineup is fully healthy, it's unlikely Kostin plays above the third line.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Nets pair in season debut

    Kostin scored two goals, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Monday's 7-4 win over the Coyotes.

    Kostin scored twice in a span of 47 seconds during the second period to give the Blues full control of the contest. The Russian winger saw 10:58 of ice time, likely aided by Pavel Buchnevich's early ejection. Kostin could move up to a more prominent role should Buchnevich receive a suspension. For now, fantasy managers will want to monitor Kostin's role and usage as he tries to carve out an everyday spot in the lineup. He profiles as a physical, bottom-line option with a decent scoring touch for 2021-22, but the Blues' wing depth could limit his potential.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Returns to NHL

    Kostin was recalled from the minors Tuesday.

    Kostin's demotion to AHL Springfield was expected to be temporary as part of the Opening Night roster shuffle. Still, the 22-year-old winger may struggle to get into the lineup and may have to periodically serve as a healthy scratch in the press box.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Bounced to minors

    Kostin was demoted to AHL Springfield on Monday.

    Kostin's time in the minors may be short-lived once Oskar Sundqvist (knee) is officially designated for injured reserve. The 22-year-old Kostin has logged a mere six games for the Blues over the last two seasons. In those outings, the Russian tallied one goal on five shots, one assist and 15 hits. If Kostin is brought back up to the NHL, he may have to settle for a spot in the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Blues' Klim Kostin: Avoids serious injury

    Kostin (upper body) was back at practice Monday and appears to have avoided any long-term injuries, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Kostin likely was held out for precautionary reasons from Saturday's preseason contest in which he sustained his upper-body issue. The 22-year-old winger is poised to challenge for a top-six role with the Blues this year and should avoid any time in the minors with a ceiling likely in the 20-30 point range.
