  • Blues' Nikita Soshnikov: Signs extension with St. Louis

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/24/18) Soshnikov signed a one-year, one-way contract extension with the Blues on Sunday, according to his agent, Dan Milstein.

    Soshnikov played in only 12 games last season for the Blues after being traded from Toronto, collecting two points on one goal and one assist -- unfortunately, an upper-body injury largely cut into his potential. However, the Russian is still only 23 years old and only one year removed from the 2016 season with Toronto when he scored five goals and racked up four assists in 56 games. He might be worth keeping tabs on if he can stay healthy, but his value to fantasy owners seems to have a relatively low ceiling.

    Blues' Nikita Soshnikov: Cleared to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Soshnikov (upper body) has been cleared medically, but won't return to the lineup against the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Considering Soshnikov has been scratched periodically, it's not surprising to see him out of the lineup, despite being healthy. The winger has played in a combined 13 games between St. Louis and Toronto in which he tallied a paltry two points. Until he can secure a regular role, the 23-year-old won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

    Blues' Nikita Soshnikov: Won't play Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/18) Soshnikov (upper body) skated Monday, but won't play against the Capitals, Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch reports.

    That makes six games missed for Soshnikov, who is running out of time to return during the regular season. The 24-year-old only has until Saturday to get healthy enough to play, and since he just started skating he may have some work left to do. However, the Russian could return as soon as Wednesday against the Blackhawks, should be find himself healed in time.

    Blues' Nikita Soshnikov: Won't make road trip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/18) Soshnikov (upper body) will not be on the charter to the West Coast for a two-game road trip that begins Friday in Vegas, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The Blues will head to Arizona for a night contest against the 'Yotes on Saturday, but it looks like Soshnikov will be out for the back-to-back set. The Russian was acquired by St. Louis to shore up its depth up front in the wake of injuries, but Soshnikov is ironically banged up himself to crush his fantasy prospects.

    Blues' Nikita Soshnikov: Still being evaluated

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/18) Soshnikov (upper body) is in the process of being reevaluated, but Blue coach Mike Yeo told reporters that he won't have an update on the winger for a few days, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

    Reading between the lines, this means that the Russian will at least miss Tuesday night's home clash with the Sharks, and there will only be six regular-season games left if he returns by the weekend. Either way, Soshnikov isn't a viable fantasy option as he's averaged only 11:22 of ice time through 10 games with the Notes.
