Kyrou scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-4 win over the Sharks. He also had three shots.
Kyrou found the net during a delayed penalty midway through the third period, firing a wrist shot from the top of the right faceoff circle. It was Kyrou's second goal of the season, both of which have been game winners. He also added an assist on a Brayden Schenn second-period goal. The 22-year-old had four goals and five assists last season in 28 games.
Kyrou scored a goal on three shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.
Kyrou skated on the third line with Tyler Bozak and Jaden Schwartz, who assisted on his go-ahead goal at 13:15 of the first period. That tally would stand as the game-winner, the first of Kyrou's career. The 22-year-old winger will likely remain in a bottom-six role for much of the season, so there's not a lot of fantasy appeal to his game.
The Blues recalled Kyrou from their taxi squad Wednesday.
Kyrou will be available if necessary for Wednesday's Opening Night clash with Colorado, but at this point he appears poised to be a healthy scratch against the Avalanche. The 22-year-old winger picked up nine points in 28 games with St. Louis last season.
Kyrou was assigned to AHL Utica on Tuesday.
This is a temporary measure to make the Blues cap compliant without subjecting more players to the waiver wire. Kyrou had an impressive training camp, and he's expected to return to the team for practice Wednesday, and he could be in the lineup for the season opener against the Avalanche. The 22-year-old is expected to flank Tyler Bozak on the third line once he's recalled.
Kyrou was credited with an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.
Kyrou's assist came on a goal by Ivan Barbashev on Feb. 11 -- the game was rescheduled and played in full with the score starting tied at one Wednesday. The 21-year-old Kyrou has nine points and 39 shots through 28 games this season -- he's not much of a factor in fantasy circles.
Kyrou (illness) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against New Jersey, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Kyrou has missed the Blues' last two contests due to an illness, but he'll return to a bottom-six role against the Devils. The 21-year-old winger has picked up eight points in 26 games this season.
Kyrou (illness) will sit out of Tuesday's game against the Rangers, per the NHL media site.
Kyrou skated Monday, but it appears he's still battling this illness to some degree. Jacob de la Rose will continue to skate on the third line for this cross-conference battle. The Blues won't rush Kyrou back, but he's trending in the right direction for Friday's matchup versus the Devils.
Kyrou (illness) returned to practice Monday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Kyrou missed Saturday's win over the Stars due to a sickness, but he's healthy and back in the mix during Monday's morning skate. The 21-year-old should accompany the team on its upcoming three-game road trip, starting Tuesday against the Rangers. Kyrou has posted four points over the last eight games.
Kyrou (illness) won't play in Saturday's game against the Stars, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Kyrou has played in nine straight games since being a healthy scratch Feb. 8, and he's posted four points and a plus-3 rating. Jacob De La Rose is expected to draw into Kyrou's place on the third line, and Kyrou's next opportunity to enter the lineup is Tuesday against the Rangers.
Kyrou scored a goal on two shots Sunday in a 4-1 win over the Wild.
Kyrou buried a rebound from a difficult angle to open the scoring midway through the first period. It was only the fourth goal of the season for the 21-year-old, but he has managed to light the lamp in each of the two games. Kyrou has eight points in 24 games in his bottom-six role.
Kyrou scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Stars.
Kyrou was a healthy scratch as recently as Feb. 8 and there were surely concerns about his readiness for the NHL level. This outing tempered those worries and provided a glimpse of the 21-year-old's upside, although he only played 9:21. In the first period, he scooped up a rebound and fed Alexander Steen a primary assist to open the scoring, and in the second period, he reeled in a pass from Robert Thomas, juked out a defender a fired a shot past Ben Bishop's blocker. Kyrou should remain a fixture in the lineup for now, but he'll need to stay consistent to keep his spot.
Kyrou posted two shots and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Carolina.
The Blues went top-heavy in this matchup to bust out of a slump, so Kyrou played just 9:48 despite a third-line deployment. Kyrou hasn't been playing on the power play and isn't a penalty killer, so his fantasy value this year remains suppressed.
Kyrou is expected to be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's matchup versus the Flyers, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
This will be Kyrou's third straight healthy scratch and his fifth in seven games. Kyrou has shown flashes of his upside this season, as he's one of the Blues' best pure skaters while displaying a playmaking ability, but his defensive game could use some work. The 21-year-old told Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest that the team told him he can move out of the hotel and find housing in St. Louis, so he'll likely be sticking with the Blues all year. Keep an eye on Kyrou's progress going forward, as he carries dynasty value.
Kyrou collected two assists, one with the man advantage, in Sunday's 4-1 win over Winnipeg.
Kyrou only saw 43 seconds of power-play time in Sunday's win, but he picked up the secondary assist on Robert Thomas' third-period, power-play goal. The 21-year-old has played sparingly this season, only appearing in nine games in 2019-20, but has four points to show for his efforts.
Kyrou netted a goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.
Kyrou made sure the Sharks' second-period lead was short-lived, converting his game-tying goal just 1:22 after Brent Burns opened the scoring. Kyrou has two tallies on 10 shots through six appearances since his call-up from AHL San Antonio.
The Blues recalled Kyrou from AHL San Antonio on Monday.
Kyrou had offseason knee surgery and spent the first month of the season on non-roster IR before being sent to minors to get back into shape. The 21-year-old has excelled in the AHL with nine goals and 15 points over 16 games. The Blues are expected to have five forwards on the shelf for Tuesday's game against the Sabres, so Kyrou figures to immediately draw into the lineup.
Kyrou (kneecap) was assigned to AHL San Antonio on Thursday.
Kyrou traveled with San Antonio for Friday's road trip to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, so it appears he's at least nearing full health. Whether he suits up for Friday's minor-league matchup is another question. If he looks 100 percent on the ice, Kyrou could be called up to the big club soon if Vladimir Tarasenko's (upper body) extends past this weekend.
The Blues placed Kyrou (kneecap) on non-roster injured reserve, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Coach Craig Berube said a week ago that Kyrou was almost ready to fully participate in practice, but the 21-year-old is still being held back. Without any preseason work, Kyrou was likely going to start the season with AHL San Antonio, but he can't be sent down until he's healthy. Still, Kyrou figures to ascend to the big club at some point this season, whether it's because of injuries or outgrowing the minor-league game.
Coach Craig Berube said Kyrou (kneecap) is close to being a full practice participant, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Berube even alluded to a chance that Kyrou is ready now but the Blues are just exercising caution. Every day that Kyrou sits out, his chances of starting the season with AHL San Antonio rise. The 21-year-old was expected to be ready to make the roster out of camp, but he hasn't played in the preseason or even practiced at full speed yet. The Blues still have four more preseason games. If Kyrou can participate in a few practices without limitations and an exhibition game or two, he still has a solid chance to be ready for Opening Night versus the Capitals on Oct. 2.
GM Doug Armstrong said Kyrou (kneecap) will be eased into team drills but should be ready for the season opener versus the Capitals on Oct. 2, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Kyrou had knee surgery back in June, but that's not expected to keep him out of training camp for long. The 21-year-old is a serious contender for a roster spot, as he brings excellent skating abilities combined with a deceptive shot. Kyrou showcased his talents with AHL San Antonio last year, registering 16 goals and 43 points in 47 games, but he wasn't nearly as successful during his time with the big club, posting just three points in 16 contests with the Blues. If Kyrou can get healthy, he'll be competing with Robby Fabbri and Mackenzie MacEachern for a spot on the Opening Night roster.
