  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Posts plus-3 in victory

    Perunovich ended up with an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 road win against the Coyotes.

    Perunovich also had a plus-3 rating, two shots on goal and a minor penalty in his 14:06 of ice time across 17 shifts. After getting blanked across his first seven games, the 25-year-old rearguard has managed assists in back-to-back games. He'll look to push his points streak to three games when the Predators come calling Friday.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Grabs power-play helper

    Perunovich notched a power-play assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    It was the first point of the season for Perunovich despite having logged just 13:09 of ice time in Sunday's contest. The blueliner continues to see big minutes with the man advantage, assuming he holds his place in the lineup ahead of veteran Robert Bortuzzo.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Limited role in season debut

    Perunovich logged 9:44 of ice time in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Flames.

    Perunovich was a healthy scratch for the first five games of the season, but he finally made his season debut as the seventh defenseman Thursday. While he didn't handle much ice time, it's worth noting that the 25-year-old recorded 1:50 on the power play. The Blues likely won't send him to the minors because he requires waivers, but it doesn't look like Perunovich's ice time will increase any time soon.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Skates on top pairing in preseason

    Perunovich recorded two blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in the 2-1 preseason loss to the Blackhawks on Thursday. He logged a team-high 26:28 of ice time.

    With Justin Faulk (lower body) out, Perunovich skated with Colton Parayko on the top pairing and led the team in ice time. A dynamic playmaker in college, Perunovich has struggled with injuries through his professional career. He has impressed when healthy in the AHL, though. Through two seasons, he posted five goals and 42 points through 39 AHL games. It remains to be seen whether he sticks with the big club this year, however, as Parayko, Faulk, Nick Leddy and Torey Krug (foot) are locked into roster spots. Still, Perunovich's upside alone makes him worth a flier in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Inks one-year contract

    Perunovich signed a one-year, $775,000 contract with the Blues on Saturday.

    Perunovich's new deal is a one-way contract, which strongly suggests he's ready to make the jump full-time to the NHL. A shoulder injury limited him to 22 AHL games during the regular season, but he racked up 20 points in those contests and added eight points in 10 games for Team USA at the IIHF World Championship.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Off LTIR, sent to AHL

    Perunovich (shoulder) was activated from long-term injured reserve and assigned to AHL Springfield on Monday.

    Perunovich had one assist in two appearances with the Thunderbirds during his recently-completed conditioning assignment. The Blues also activated blueliner Marco Scandella (hip) from LTIR on Monday, so Perunovich will get some additional time in the minors. The 24-year-old defenseman had six assists, 14 shots on goal and 12 blocks in 19 appearances with the Blues during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Heading for conditioning stint

    Perunovich, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, was sent to AHL Springfield for a conditioning stint Sunday.

    Perunovich hasn't played yet in 2022-23 because of his injury, so this is a chance for him to shake off some of the rust. He had six assists in 19 games while averaging 15:27 of ice time with St. Louis last season.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Cleared for contact

    Perunovich (shoulder) is cleared for contact, Blues coach Craig Berube told Lou Korac of

    Perunovich hasn't played yet in 2022-23. It did look like he would probably miss the entire regular season, but perhaps his return will end up being significantly sooner than anticipated. The 24-year-old had six assists in 19 games while averaging 15:27 of ice time in 2021-22.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Making progress in recovery

    Perunovich (shoulder) has been cleared for light contact, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Perunovich will probably still miss the entirety of the regular season, but it's nonetheless encouraging to see him ramping up his participation in practice after undergoing shoulder surgery in early October. The oft-injured blueliner picked up six helpers through 19 top-level appearances last season.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Begins skating

    Perunovich (shoulder) has resumed skating, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Perunovich underwent shoulder surgery in October, so he's just beginning to ramp up activity. He'll still likely miss nearly all of the rest of the regular season, so fantasy managers in redraft formats don't need to track his recovery closely.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Officially on IR

    Perunovich (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Perunovich underwent shoulder surgery last week, so this is merely a procedural move. He's at risk of missing nearly all of the 2022-23 campaign while recovering, with his earliest return likely in April.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Set to undergo shoulder surgery

    Perunovich will be reevaluated in six months after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured left shoulder Thursday.

    Perunovich simply can't catch a break, as he's now been forced to undergo surgery in three consecutive campaigns to address different injuries, completely derailing the beginning of what appeared to be a promising future in the NHL. Given his expected recovery timetable, look for the 24-year-old defender to miss most, if not all of the 2022-23 regular season. With Perunovich out long term, rookie Matt Kessel may be tasked with taking on a regular role with the Blues immediately this year.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Exits game with upper-body injury

    St. Louis has ruled out Perunovich for the remainder of Tuesday's game due to an upper-body injury.

    Perunovich sustained the injury on a hit by Chicago's Michal Teply. Perunovich had six assists in 19 games with the Blues last season. He also scored three goals and 22 points in 17 contests at the AHL level.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Re-ups with club

    Perunovich signed a one-year contract with St. Louis on Thursday.

    Perunovich saw action in 19 games for the Blues this season in which he generated six assists, 14 shots and five hits while averaging 15:27 of ice time. While the 23-year-old blueliner may still have to serve as a healthy scratch from time to time this year, he should see more opportunities to get into the lineup and could score his first NHL goal.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Snaps skid with assist

    Perunovich logged a power-play assist and went minus-2 in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 4.

    Perunovich picked up his first point of the second round, setting up David Perron's second goal of the game. Perunovich has earned three of his four assists in the playoffs with the man advantage -- he's been in the lineup as a seventh defenseman and power-play specialist while Torey Krug (lower body) is on the mend. Perunovich has added four blocked shots, three hits, two shots on net and a minus-4 rating in limited minutes.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Helpers in three straight games

    Perunovich notched a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild in Game 6.

    Perunovich has an assist in each of the last three games, and two of them have come with the man advantage. The 23-year-old defenseman has essentially been a rotational option on the third pairing with the Blues preferring to role seven blueliners lately. He'll have some intrigue in fantasy for his power-play role, but the Blues are set for a tough second-round matchup versus the Avalanche.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Assists in back-to-back games

    Perunovich logged a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Wild in Game 5.

    The Blues opted for seven defensemen in this contest, allowing Perunovich to stay in the lineup. He saw just 11:23 of ice time, but he served as a power-play specialist, where he helped out on Ryan O'Reilly's first-period tally. The 23-year-old Perunovich has two helpers and two blocked shots in his first two playoff contests, and he should stick in the lineup as long as he remains productive.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Questionable Sunday

    Perunovich (wrist) could be available Sunday against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Perunovich hasn't played with the Blues since Jan. 15 and underwent wrist surgery in early March. The 23-year-old rookie tallied six assists in 19 NHL appearances this season. He'll need to be officially activated before joining the lineup but it sounds like Perunovich could return at some point during this series.
