  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Making progress in recovery

    Perunovich (shoulder) has been cleared for light contact, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Perunovich will probably still miss the entirety of the regular season, but it's nonetheless encouraging to see him ramping up his participation in practice after undergoing shoulder surgery in early October. The oft-injured blueliner picked up six helpers through 19 top-level appearances last season.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Begins skating

    Perunovich (shoulder) has resumed skating, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Perunovich underwent shoulder surgery in October, so he's just beginning to ramp up activity. He'll still likely miss nearly all of the rest of the regular season, so fantasy managers in redraft formats don't need to track his recovery closely.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Officially on IR

    Perunovich (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Perunovich underwent shoulder surgery last week, so this is merely a procedural move. He's at risk of missing nearly all of the 2022-23 campaign while recovering, with his earliest return likely in April.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Set to undergo shoulder surgery

    Perunovich will be reevaluated in six months after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured left shoulder Thursday.

    Perunovich simply can't catch a break, as he's now been forced to undergo surgery in three consecutive campaigns to address different injuries, completely derailing the beginning of what appeared to be a promising future in the NHL. Given his expected recovery timetable, look for the 24-year-old defender to miss most, if not all of the 2022-23 regular season. With Perunovich out long term, rookie Matt Kessel may be tasked with taking on a regular role with the Blues immediately this year.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Exits game with upper-body injury

    St. Louis has ruled out Perunovich for the remainder of Tuesday's game due to an upper-body injury.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Re-ups with club

    Perunovich signed a one-year contract with St. Louis on Thursday.

    Perunovich saw action in 19 games for the Blues this season in which he generated six assists, 14 shots and five hits while averaging 15:27 of ice time. While the 23-year-old blueliner may still have to serve as a healthy scratch from time to time this year, he should see more opportunities to get into the lineup and could score his first NHL goal.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Snaps skid with assist

    Perunovich logged a power-play assist and went minus-2 in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 4.

    Perunovich picked up his first point of the second round, setting up David Perron's second goal of the game. Perunovich has earned three of his four assists in the playoffs with the man advantage -- he's been in the lineup as a seventh defenseman and power-play specialist while Torey Krug (lower body) is on the mend. Perunovich has added four blocked shots, three hits, two shots on net and a minus-4 rating in limited minutes.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Helpers in three straight games

    Perunovich notched a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild in Game 6.

    Perunovich has an assist in each of the last three games, and two of them have come with the man advantage. The 23-year-old defenseman has essentially been a rotational option on the third pairing with the Blues preferring to role seven blueliners lately. He'll have some intrigue in fantasy for his power-play role, but the Blues are set for a tough second-round matchup versus the Avalanche.

  • Blues' Scott Perunovich: Assists in back-to-back games

    Perunovich logged a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Wild in Game 5.

    The Blues opted for seven defensemen in this contest, allowing Perunovich to stay in the lineup. He saw just 11:23 of ice time, but he served as a power-play specialist, where he helped out on Ryan O'Reilly's first-period tally. The 23-year-old Perunovich has two helpers and two blocked shots in his first two playoff contests, and he should stick in the lineup as long as he remains productive.
