  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Garners point in finale

    Walman added an assist in the season finale Friday, contributing to a 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Walman started his third season with the Blues, adding six points through 32 games, but a trade to the Red Wings afforded him an expanded role and he pitched in four assists, 26 hits and 32 blocked shots through 19 contests with his new team. He has some offensive flair to his game, but coach Jeff Blashill sent Walman to the ice in the defensive zone 53 percent of the time, which was a change of pace from what Walman was accustomed to in St. Louis. Wallman is a restricted free agent ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Cleared to play

    Walman (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Senators.

    Walman missed Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets with an upper-body injury, but it's clearly not a serious issue. The 26-year-old Walman will return to a third-pairing role. He's logged two assists in nine games since he was traded from the Blues to the Red Wings at the trade deadline.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Out with upper-body injury

    Walman (upper body) won't play Saturday versus the Blue Jackets, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Jordan Oesterle will enter the lineup to replace Walman. The 26-year-old Walman has earned two assists in nine games since he was traded to Detroit from the Blues, but he's been limited primarily to a bottom-four role. His next chance to play will be Tuesday versus the Senators.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Could carve meaningful role

    Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman said Walman, acquired from the Blues in a trade Monday, has a chance to become a regular for his new club, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Walman averaged only 13 minutes of ice time between 57 contests with the Blues, but the Wings aren't as formidable on the blue line as that Central Division club, so he could see an uptick in playing time now that he's swapped sweaters. Yzerman reportedly likes Walman because he "skates well, shoots the puck hard, (and is) competitive."

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Traded to Detroit

    Walman was traded to the Red Wings from the Blues on Monday along with Oskar Sundqvist and a 2023 second-round pick in exchange for Nick Leddy and Luke Witkowski.

    The Blues are upgrading from Walman to Leddy on defense, while a move to an inferior Detroit team could offer an opportunity for Walman to play more minutes. Walman rarely saw action on either of the Blues' top two defense pairings, as the 26-year-old defenseman totaled three goals and three assists while eclipsing 17 minutes of ice time only once in 32 appearances for St. Louis in 2021-22.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Tallies in win

    Walman scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Rangers.

    Walman was a late addition to the lineup with Tyler Bozak (illness) scratched just before warmups. The 26-year-old Walman responded well, snapping his five-game point drought with a second-period goal. The defenseman has six points, 44 shots on net, 26 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 31 contests. Most of his playing time is expected to be in a third-pairing role going forward, though the return of Marco Scandella (lower body) could see Walman end up as a healthy scratch.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Adds apple in commanding win

    Walman posted an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Most of the news on Walman has centered around his resolve in fighting off an upper-body injury and subsequently clearing COVID-19 protocols, but the third-pairing defenseman can take pride in the fact that he contributed offensively for a big win against his hometown team.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Clears protocols

    Walman exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday, Lou Korac of reports.

    Walman could draw back into the lineup as soon as Thursday versus the Kraken. The 25-year-old defender has tallied three points through 18 top-level appearances this season.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Walman was designated for the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday.

    Walman is doubtful for Friday's contest with Washington as a result of his protocols designation. The 25-year-old has been sidelined with illness and injury for a total of 16 contests this season.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Taken off injured reserve

    Walman (upper body) has been activated off IR, per the NHL media site.

    Walman was on the shelf for the club's previous six contests, his second extended absence this season after having missed eight contests in November. Even with his activation, the blueliner is far from a lock to get into the lineup against Edmonton on Wednesday (or beyond) and would need to supplant the likes of Scott Perunovich or Marco Scandella to get onto the ice.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Lands on IR

    Walman (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Now that he's on injured reserve, Walman will miss St. Louis' next two contests at a minimum. Another update on the 25-year-old defender, who's picked up three points through 17 games this season, should surface once he's cleared to return.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Ruled out versus Detroit

    Walman (upper body) will miss out against the Red Wings on Thursday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    It's just the latest blow for the Blues, who are already without a full complement of forwards, which is why Walman was playing in the first place. Without the 25-year-old defenseman, St. Louis will once again be forced to play with just 17 skaters in Thursday's matchup before the team will be able to call up a player from AHL Springfield.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Suffers upper-body injury

    Walman (upper body) left Tuesday's game versus the Panthers early, Lou Korac of reports.

    The nature of Walman's injury isn't clear, but he suffered it on the same play midway through the third period that left Ville Husso (lower body) ailing. The Blues played Tuesday's game a man short, so they'll be able to make emergency recalls for Thursday versus the Red Wings if any of their injured players are unable to suit up.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Finds twine in loss

    Walman found the back of the net in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Panthers.

    Walman capitalized on a Panthers turnover by wiring home his second career goal. While he's actually a defenseman, the Blues used Walman as a spare forward in this one with Tyler Bozak unavailable due to COVID-19 protocol.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Draws helper Thursday

    Walman produced an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Walman set up James Neal's game-winning goal at 11:42 of the second period. The 25-year-old Walman hasn't been known for his offense in his limited NHL experience. He has two assists, 13 shots on net, nine hits and nine blocked shots through nine games while working in a bottom-pairing role this year. His place in the lineup seems secure for now, while Robert Bortuzzo and Niko Mikkola have competed to be the sixth defenseman playing alongside Walman.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Manages assist

    Walman produced an assist in Monday's 7-4 win over the Coyotes.

    Walman picked up an assist on Jordan Kyrou's second goal of the game. The 25-year-old Walman had just two points to go with 47 shots on goal, 26 hits and 20 blocked shots in 24 contests last year. He's the Blues' sixth defenseman for now, but he'll have to fend off Niko Mikkola's challenge for a third-pairing job.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Off COVID-19 list

    Walman was removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Friday, Lou Korac of reports.

    Walman has missed the last five games while on the protocols list and hasn't suited up since May 8. He likely won't be available for Game 3 against the Avalanche on Friday but could return as soon as Sunday's Game 4 matchup. He scored just two points in 24 games during the regular season.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Not traveling with team

    Walman (COVID-19 protocols) didn't make the trip to Colorado with his teammates, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    This news rules Walman out for Monday's Game 1 against the Avalanche, and he won't play in Game 2 unless he's able to clear COVID-19 protocols and travel to Colorado prior to Wednesday. Even when healthy, Walman has often been relegated to the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Blues' Jake Walman: Tests positive for virus

    Walman has tested positive for COVID-19 and will enter the NHL's virus protocols.

    As such, Walman won't play Wednesday or Thursday (both against Minnesota), and it's unclear if he'll be ready to return for the postseason, which likely starts for the Blues next week.
