Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Helpers in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson registered an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

Gunnarsson set up Ivan Barbashev's opening tally at 9:21 of the second period. The Swedish blueliner has helpers in consecutive games for the first time this season, and seven points in 27 contests overall. That matches his production from last year -- he hasn't reached double-digits since 2014-15, his first year with the Blues when he had 12 points in 61 outings. Gunnarsson has added 36 blocks, 26 hits and a plus-5 rating in 2019-20.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Notches sixth point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson posted an assist, two shots on net and a hit in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Predators.

Gunnarsson has been able to stick in the lineup since returning from an arm injury, and he's averaging 17:07 of ice time per game in February. He won't carry much fantasy value, as he's registered just six points, 17 shots on net and 33 blocked shots through 26 games this year.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Scores second goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson scored a goal on his lone shot and registered a pair of hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Gunnarsson scored on a harmless-looking point shot in the second period, tying the game at 2-2. It was just the second goal of the year for the 33-year-old, who has five points in his 22 games. Gunnarsson is a depth player for the Blues who does not offer any fantasy upside.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Slots back in Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson logged 16:14 and dished out a hit in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Gunnarsson was a healthy scratch in two of five games leading up to this contest, but he worked on the top pairing in this contest with penalty-kill duties, too. The 33-year-old has four points over 21 games, and his fantasy value is negligible at this point.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (arm) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

In a corresponding move, the team placed Colton Parayko (upper body) on IR. Gunnarsson was healthy for Monday's win over the Ducks, but coach Craig Berube kept him out of the lineup since Niko Mikkola was playing well. Therefore, Gunnarsson's activation doesn't guarantee that he'll play Wednesday versus the Flyers.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Healthy, but not playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Craig Berube said Gunnarsson (arm) is healthy but won't play in Monday's game versus the Ducks, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Gunnarsson resides on injured reserve still, as the Blues want to keep Niko Mikkola in the lineup. It's unclear how long the team will wait before reinserting Gunnarsson into the lineup, but fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned, as the 33-year-old hasn't recorded double-digit points since the 2014-15 campaign.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (arm) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Gunnarsson, who's been sidelined since Dec. 12 with an arm injury, is considered healthy enough to play, but he'll need some time to get back into game shape before rejoining the lineup. He'll need to be activated off injured reserve before returning to action, so another update on his status should surface once that occurs.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (arm) will remain sidelined against San Jose on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

According to coach Craig Berube, Gunnarsson might be healthy enough to play but needs some more practice time before getting back into the lineup. With the defenseman sidelined along with Colton Parayko (upper body), youngster Niko Mikkola will make his NHL debut in Tuesday's tilt. The Blues will have another practice session Wednesday, which opens the door for Gunnarsson to return to action versus Buffalo on Thursday.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Nearing return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Craig Berube said that Gunnarsson (arm) may be ready for Tuesday's game versus the Sharks, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Gunnarsson hasn't played since Dec. 12, and even when he's healthy, there's no guarantee he's inserted into the lineup. However, if Colton Parayko (upper body) can't go, Gunnarsson's services will be necessary. The 33-year-old blueliner's return to the lineup will be preceded by activation from IR.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson has been placed on injured reserve due to an upper-body injury.

Gunnarsson will be forced to miss the next three games at a minimum because of the issue, though it's possible his stay on the sidelines could last longer than that. The veteran defenseman has notched just four points through 17 games and has seen a career-low 14:56 of ice time per contest, so his fantasy upside remains limited even when healthy.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Dealing with undisclosed issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) won't be available for Saturday's clash with Chicago, Lou Korac of reports.

It sounds like Gunnarsson may be in danger of missing extended time, but he's frequently sat as a healthy scratch and has only managed four points in the 17 games he's appeared in this season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his availability.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (illness) participated in Monday's morning skate, Lou Korac of reports.

Gunnarsson appears healthy after falling ill and missing the last two games, but he's expected to be a scratch for Monday's game against the Blackhawks with Robert Bortuzzo returning from suspension.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Still not feeling right
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (illness) won't play Saturday against the Penguins, Lou Korac of reports.

Gunnarsson will miss a second consecutive game after being unable to dress for Friday's contest in Dallas. Derrick Pouliot will skate in his place.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (illness) will miss Friday's game in Dallas, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Gunnarsson will be replaced in the lineup by Derrick Pouliot. The Blues have a quick turnaround with another game Saturday against Pittsburgh, so expect an update on Gunnarsson's status prior to that one.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Adds late helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson recorded an assist and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

Gunnarsson had the secondary assist on an empty-net goal by Ivan Barbashev. The Swedish defenseman has four points in 10 contests this year, while adding 14 blocks and six PIM. He hasn't topped 10 points in a season since 2014-15 -- his on-ice value comes from his defensive presence more than point production, which makes him a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Notches first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Wild.

Gunnarsson's goal gave the Blues a 2-1 lead with just over five minutes left in the opening period. After a lengthy stretch in the press box, Gunnarsson has drawn into the lineup in back-to-back games and has a goal and an assist to show for it. He's never been a particularly offensive rearguard so it's nice to see him chipping in when called upon.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (lower body) had an assist and two PIM while blocking a pair of shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Wild.

Gunnarrson had last played Oct. 17 against Vancouver and then sat out each of the next five games. It's not known which of those games were missed due to the injury and which were healthy scratches. Regardless, Gunnarsson picked up his first point since opening night while playing on the Blues' third defensive pairing. The 32-year-old will remain nothing more than a depth option on the blue line for St. Louis.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (lower body) will play in Wednesday's game against the Wild, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Gunnarsson is prone to healthy scratches, so it's unclear if he was injured for the entirety of his five-game hiatus. The 32-year-old is ready to rock now, though, and will slot onto the final defensive pairing with Vince Dunn. Gunnarsson has averaged 16:05 TOI through five outings and has one point to show for it.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Not in lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Sunday's game against Detroit, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Gunnarsson will miss his fifth consecutive game with the lower body injury. He hasn't made a serious difference from a fantasy perspective, as he's put up just one assist this season and a minus-2 rating. In his stead, Robert Bortuzzo will continue to draw into the lineup on the third defensive pair.

October 26, 2019 12:12 PM
Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Slated to sit Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (lower body) isn't expected to play in Saturday's game against the Bruins, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Robert Bortuzzo will slot in for the Stanley Cup rematch. Gunnarsson's absence Saturday also makes him highly questionable for Sunday's road game against the Red Wings. The veteran blueliner has an assist and a minus-2 rating through five games.
