  • Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: In for Friday's preseason clash

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/18) Tarasenko (shoulder) will play Friday in a preseason home contest versus the Blue Jackets, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Previous reports indicated that Tarasenko will be ready for the start of the regular season, and the fact that he's scheduled to draw into the next preseason game only strengthens that notion. Tarasenko has averaged 36 goals over the past two seasons, but his 66-point output from last year was the lowest it's been since his abbreviated 2013-14 campaign.

    Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Will be ready for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/7/18) Tarasenko (shoulder) said he should be ready to play in the season opener Oct. 4 against the Jets, Craig Custance of The Athletic reports.

    This notion is backed up by Tarasenko practicing without limitations ahead of training camp, according to Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic. Although the skates haven't consisted of much contact, there's no reason to believe the Russian sniper won't be in shape to play right out of the gate. Prospective fantasy owners should still monitor his workload throughout camp, but his value has never been higher due to the offseason additions of Ryan O'Reilly, Patrick Maroon, David Perron and Tyler Bozak.

    Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Returns to ice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/6/18) Tarasenko (shoulder) skated during a voluntary practice with the Blues on Monday, Michael Blinn of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Although he's not cleared for contact yet, Tarasenko was able to shoot less than four months after reconstructive surgery for his dislocated shoulder. The regular season is still two months away and the Russian winger still needs to absorb contact before he's put into the game, but being able to shoot already is a huge step in the right direction. Tarasenko is coming off a "down year" with just 33 goals and 66 points, but the additions of Ryan O'Reilly, Patrick Maroon and Tyler Bozak should catalyze a bounce-back year, as the Blues will have three full lines with offensive threats.

    Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Making strides in recovery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/18) Tarasenko is progressing well in recovery from shoulder surgery in April, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The Blues hunted for top talent to surround Tarasenko with this offseason, making runs at John Tavares, Ilya Kovalchuk and Artemi Panarin. However, these attempts have fallen short, so the good news about Tarasenko's recovery can serve as a silver lining -- for now -- since it's still not clear if he'll be healthy for the season opener Oct. 4. The Russian sniper will look to bounce back from a "down year" by his standards, as he scored 33 goals and 33 assists to mark his lowest point total since 2013-14. That regression could be contributed to coach Mike Yeo consistently shaking up the lines in the name of balance and not allowing Tarasenko to find a groove with his linemates. All that could change if the Blues can poach a top-six forward when free agency opens Sunday, but keep an eye on whether prospect Robert Thomas can fill that mold as well.

    Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Undergoes reconstructive shoulder surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/18) Tarasenko required reconstructive surgery to repair his left shoulder, and he'll be reevaluated in training camp come September.

    The prized winger sustained his injury in a do-or-die contest against the Avalanche on Saturday, departing after 2:20 of ice time. "When (the pain) didn't go away (after) 10-15 seconds, you know it was something serious," Tarasenko said. "I'm really upset it happened in the most important game of the year, but it was a bad feeling to be in the locker room while the guys fought for a (playoff) spot." While Tarasenko -- who provided 66 points in 80 regular-season games -- has every reason to be miffed about his ill-fated close to the 2017-18 campaign, the silver lining is that he has more time to recover with the Blues eliminated from playoff contention.
