Hoffman's assist on Vince Dunn's power-play goal in the first period was the former's 200th career helper. He celebrated the milestone by scoring a pair of third-period tallies, including one on the power play, as the Blues attempted a comeback. Hoffman is up to 13 goals, 26 points, 86 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in 38 appearances this year.

Hoffman wasn't traded ahead of Monday's deadline, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Hoffman was a healthy scratch for two games last week as the Blues appeared ready to trade the 31-year-old sniper.

In turn, Hoffman will stick with the team as they battle for the final playoff spot in the West Division. Hoffman has accrued 11 goals and 23 points through 37 games this year.
