Blues' Klim Kostin: Loaned to KHL club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blues loaned Kostin to Avangard Omsk of the KHL on Tuesday

Kostin spent the majority of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, tallying 13 goals and 30 points while racking up 59 PIM in 48 games with San Antonio, but he also appeared in four contests with the big club, potting his first career NHL goal during that span. The 2017 first-round pick will head to Russia for now, but he'll be recalled ahead of St. Louis' training camp and should have a decent chance of securing a spot on the Blues' Opening Night roster.

Blues' Klim Kostin: With team for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin, along with Austin Poganski, Jake Walman and Derrick Pouliot, took part in Monday's Group A training camp session, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Kostin played in four NHL contests with the Blues this year, in which he registered one goal, five shots and six hits while averaging 8:32 of ice time. It seems unlikely Kostin will see action in the postseason, though he could certainly challenge Mackenzie MacEachern or Jordan Kyrou for a spot in the lineup.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Producing well in AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin has scored back-to-back, game-winning goals for AHL San Antonio.

Kostin had a cup of coffee with the big club earlier this season, and although he scored his first NHL goal, it was clear he still has work to do before becoming a fixture in the lineup. Playing top-line minutes in the AHL will help get him there, and he's becoming more comfortable by the day, as he's racked up 10 goals and nine assists over the last 22 games. It took the 20-year-old 66 games in 2018-19 to reach the 10-goal mark.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Relegated to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blues assigned Kostin to AHL San Antonio on Monday.

Kostin slotted into four games on this NHL stint, and he was able to notch his first NHL goal while adding five shots on net and six hits. The 20-year-old gave the Blues' faithful and dynasty owners taste of what's to come after he continues fine-tuning his game in the minors.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Buries first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin scored his first NHL goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Predators.

The milestone will be a little bittersweet given the result of the game, but the first-round pick from 2017 can check it off his list. He's added six hits and five shots on goal in four games since his Nov. 13 call-up. The 20-year-old Russian will likely remain in a fourth-line role while he's with the big club.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Physical in NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin recorded two shots on net and four hits during 11:45 of ice time in his NHL debut Saturday against the Ducks.

Kostin was the top-rated European prospect entering the 2017 draft, but issues about his KHL contract dropped his stock, allowing the Blues to select him at 31st overall. The big-bodied forward (6-3, 212) played the last two seasons in the AHL adjusting to North American hockey, and he finally made his long-awaited NHL debut during Saturday's 4-1 loss. The Blues struggled, but Kostin did his job as a physical winger who wasn't scared to fire the puck. The 20-year-old hopes to stay with the big club for a few more games, but he may be demoted again if the Blues decide to sign Troy Brouwer or Jamie McGinn -- who are both on PTOs.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blues recalled Kostin from AHL San Antonio on Wednesday.

Kostin has been pretty productive in the minors this season, notching three goals and eight points in 14 games. The 20-year-old forward could make his NHL debut as soon as Friday against Columbus.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin was dropped to AHL San Antonio on Sunday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Kostin will suit up in the AHL for the third straight season after being drafted 31st overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. The 20-year-old forward had an impressive preseason with six points in four games but it wasn't enough to earn him an NHL roster spot heading into the regular season.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Enjoying excellent preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin recorded three goals and three assists through four preseason games.

Kostin has a decent chance to make the final roster Opening Night. The 2017 first-round pick (31st overall) has spent the last two years developing his game with AHL San Antonio, and he came into this year's training camp on a mission. He's looked more aggressive and unleashes his shot more often. Whether there's an open roster spot for Kostin remains to be seen, but if Jordan Kyrou (kneecap) isn't ready that could open the door.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Among Black Aces call-ups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin was recalled from AHL San Antonio on Monday as part of the club's Black Aces. In addition, forwards Jordan Nolan and Austin Poganski and defensemen Chris Butler, Niko Mikkola, Mitch Reinke and Jake Walman have been promoted from the minors.

Kostin hasn't developed in North America quite as the team had hoped, accumulating just 22 points in 60 games to go along with a brutal minus-28 rating this season. The 19-year-old will be on the final year of his entry-level contract next season, and will likely start in the minors after his lackluster start to his career, barring a solid training camp.

Blues' Klim Kostin: AHL struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin scored his eighth goal of the season in AHL San Antonio's 4-1 loss to Iowa on Tuesday.

St. Louis was hoping that Kostin's play would improve dramatically after a lackluster first season in North America and it simply hasn't happened. In fact, he has actually been worse this year than last. He has just 20 points in 53 games to go along with an abysmal minus-26 rating. Kostin is far too young to give up on (he won't turn 20 years old until May) and he played very little in his draft season in his native Russia, but the early returns are not strong. All the Blues can do here is stay the course and hope his play improves over time.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Finishes WJC with six points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin scored three goals and added three assists in seven games while leading Team Russia to the bronze medal in the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Kostin was the captain of Team Russia and performed well against the world's best, and he now has 14 points in 12 games at the tournament over the last two years. The 19-year-old has now returned to AHL San Antonio to finish the season. The Blues have little incentive to elevate the 19-year-old to the big club since he only has 11 points in 28 games, and if he plays 11 games in 2018-19 and 11 more next season, he'll be available for Seattle's upcoming expansion draft.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Heads to World Juniors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin was loaned from AHL San Antonio to Team Russia for the World Junior Championship, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Kostin has experience with Team Russia, as he scored a team-high five goals and eight points in seven games in the 2018 tournament. The 19-year-old pivot is still working on his development and hasn't been recalled to the big club yet, and he has 11 points in 28 games for San Antonio.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Among seven recalls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin was recalled by the Blues on Saturday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Kostin was recalled along with defensemen Chris Butler, Mitch Reinke and Tyler Wotherspoon, plus forwards Mackenzie MacEachern, Adam Musil and Brian Flynn. All seven spent time with the Blues this preseason but were assigned to AHL San Antonio after the first round of cuts. They may get a chance to suit up in Sunday's preseason finale against the Capitals in order to give the veterans a rest, but none stand a chance to make the 23-man roster for Opening Night.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Finishes AHL season with 28 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin recorded six goals and 22 assists in 67 AHL games during the 2017-18 season.

Kostin was the top-rated European prospect in the 2017 NHL Draft, so he was considered a steal at No. 31 overall. Luckily, the Blues were able to get him into their minor-league system immediately so he could adjust to the American game. However, AHL San Antonio was a co-op with the Avalanche last season, so the focus on developing Kostin was neglected compared to an exclusively St. Louis squad. The Blues are in desperate need of a top-six center, but Kostin's AHL stats don't scream that he'll be that guy right out of training camp. Still, standing at 6-foot-3 and 212 pounds, the 19-year-old will be given a shot at the 23-man roster, and his odds to make it could increase if St. Louis can't reel in a center when free agency begins July 1. The Blues will be San Antonio's sole affiliate in 2018-19, so Kostin will get the necessary development next year either way.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Still making adjustments to American game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin has two goals, nine assists and 47 PIM through 27 games for AHL San Antonio.

When the Blues drafted Kostin, a Russian national, they knew he would need some time to adjust to the smaller sheet of ice that America provides. The 2017 first-round pick is starting to get the hang of it, but it's apparent he'll need more time before getting called up to the big club. However, it's just as apparent that the Kostin holds the raw talent to be a serious threat in the NHL eventually, as he posted five goals, three assists and a plus-7 rating through five games in the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship. Barring more injuries to Blues forwards, Kostin likely won't get a chance with the big club this season, but his name is one to keep in mind for the future.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin (lower body) was assigned to AHL San Antonio on Thursday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

Kostin had a fringe chance of making the Opening Night roster, but this injury has held him back to the point that the Blues apparently feel it best to send him down to the minors for the time being. Once healthy, the Russian national could receive a recall to get another shot at the big club.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin will be sidelined 7-to-10 days with a lower-body ailment.

Once given the all -clear, Kostin could be in line for a spot on the 23-man roster -- although the fact that he can be assigned to the minors without going through waivers could factor into the decision. Injuries have opened the door for several youngsters to crack the Blues' lineup and the organization will likely want to take a hard look at its 2017 first-round pick.

Blues' Klim Kostin: Ready for Rookie Showcase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostin (shoulder) will play in next week's NHLPA Rookie Showcase in Toronto, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The immensely skilled forward will be eager to show off his talents after enduring an injury-plagued 2016-17 campaign with the KHL's Moscow Dynamo. However, as a prospect drafted by the Blues with a first-round (31st overall) pick in this year's draft, it remains to be seen whether he can make the grand leap from the European league to the NHL right away -- the upcoming rookie event should help paint such a picture.
