Grachev Sent Down By Blues

News: The Blues have assigned Evgeny Grachev to AHL Peoria, the team's official site reports.

Blues' Grachev On Second Line

News: Evgeny Grachev, who was recalled from AHL Peoria in time for Thursday night's game, played 11:50 in St. Louis' shootout win over New Jersey. He had minimal impact with one shot and one hit in the game.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev opened the game on the second line, essentially taking the role of Matt D'Agostini, who was out with concussion symptoms. "What we wanted [Grachev] to do down in Peoria he did. We wanted him to be more assertive offensively rather than be a guy that deferred to other people. We wanted him to kind of put the puck in his hip pocket and really drive to the net and he did that," Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. We suspect Grachev will stick with the Blues as long as it takes D'Agostini to get himself back into shape.

Grachev Contributes To Blues' Win

News: Evgeny Grachev scored a goal and had three shots on net in St. Louis' 5-3 win over Dallas on Monday.

Blues Move Grachev To Second Line

News: Evgeny Grachev will skate on the second line Monday night, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blues Activate Grachev

News: Evgeny Grachev was activated for Friday night's game against Phoenix, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It was just the second time in the last 14 games Evgeny Grachev has been active. He skated on a reconstituted third line with Matt D'Agostini at center and Jamie Langenbrunner at right wing. He showed nice determination in the second period when he assisted on D'Agostini's goal. After losing the puck in the offensive zone, Grachev back-checked and reclaimed the puck, leading to the rush that resulted in the marker.

Blues Recall Grachev

News: The Blues have recalled Evgeny Grachev from AHL Peoria, the club's official site reports.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev was merely sent down to get minutes in a back-to-back-to-back stretch for the AHL club. He'll return to his fourth-line, limited-minutes role, in which he's managed just two assists in 17 NHL games.

Blues Assign Grachev

News: After being activated from injured reserve Tuesday, Evgeny Grachev was assigned to AHL Peoria later that day, St. Louis Post Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With the Blues' roster full at 23, Evgeny Grachev was bumped down to the AHL where the Peoria Rivermen have three games in three days. The coaching staff would rather have Grachev skate than be a healthy scratch. Grachev will be ready for a callup when the Blues need him.

Blues Activate Grachev From IR

News: The Blues activated Evgeny Grachev (eye) from injured reserve Tuesday, according to the team's official Twitter page.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev has appeared in 17 games with the Blues this season; and though he has recovered from his eye injury, he remains one of the final couple forwards on the roster and will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

Blues Place Grachev (Eye) On IR

News: Evgeny Grachev has been placed on injured reserve with an eye injury sustained when a puck him in the face during practice, Jerry McDonald of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev was playing a minimal role for the Blues, averaging fewer than 10 minutes of ice time per game and settling into a healthy-scratch role.

Blues' Grachev Day-to-Day With Eye Injury

News: Evgeny Grachev did not practice Tuesday after being hit by a puck near the eye in Monday's practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev will not be evaluated again until Wednesday, so it appears highly unlikely he will suit up for Tuesday's game against the Capitals.

Blues' Grachev Moving Up

News: Evgeny Grachev will replace the suspended Chris Stewart (three games) on the second line in Thursday night's game against the Panthers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Not that the Blues want to be without Stewart, but his three-game suspension does give head coach Ken Hitchcock an opportunity to evaluate Evgeny Grachev in a top-six atmosphere. The Russian forward, who has impressed coaches while skating mostly on the fourth line, will line up with Matt D'Agostini and Patrik Berglund.

Blues' Coach Seeing Grachev In Expanded Role

News: Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock has been impressed with Evgeny Grachev on the team's fourth line and plans to give him more minutes on the special teams, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: "Start him off on PK and get him out there, then we'll see if we can get him on the PP," said Hitchcock, who added that it's obvious Evgeny Grachev has been coached well in his development. Grachev did see some top-six forward minutes in preseason, but Hitchcock doesn't feel he's ready for that kind of action just yet. Not until he proves he can score on a regular basis in practice. "Haven't see that yet. He shoots it hard and fast, but he wears out the crest a little bit," said Hitchcock.

St. Louis' Grachev Grabs More Minutes

News: Evgeny Grachev skated a season-high 12:43 in Saturday night's 2-1 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: He's still primarily a fourth-liner, but Evgeny Grachev is picking up extra shifts here and there, a sign of confidence from the coaching staff. He's not ready for prime time fantasy work, but if the Blues continue to struggle scoring goals, he may be in line for a promotion.

Blues' Grachev Debuts

News: Evgeny Grachev skated 12 shifts for 8:38 of ice time in St. Louis' win over San Jose on Saturday.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev was making his regular-season debut for his new organization, replacing the injured Andy McDonald (head). He didn't step into McDonald's first-line role, however, skating on the Blues' fourth line.

Grachev To Make Blues Debut

News: Evgeny Grachev will make his debut in a St. Louis uniform Saturday night against the Sharks, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Blues head coach Davis Payne is choosing to roll with Evgeny Grachev and Chris Porter against San Jose in place of Andy McDonald (head injury) and Ryan Reaves (healthy scratch). Both Grachev and Porter will skate on the fourth line with center Scott Nichol. "(Grachev) has some offensive ability, he's got some good size, good pace to his game," Payne said. "But like any situation, you've got to work your way in and continue to take every opportunity and make it count."

Grachev Likely Active For Blues

News: Evgeny Grachev is expected to replace Andy McDonald (possible concussion) on the active roster for Saturday night's game in San Jose, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: This would be our first regular-season look at Evgeny Grachev, who led the Blues with three preseason goals. Whether Grachev will skate on the Blues' top line, as McDonald does when healthy, has not been determined. He did skate with McDonald's linemates, David Backes and Jamie Langenbrunner, during the preseason, so there's some level of familiarity there.

Blues Keep Grachev

News: Evgeny Grachev has made the Blues' opening-night roster, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev tied for team-high scoring in the preseason with five points (three goals, two assists) and generally impressed head coach Davis Payne with his energy while playing the full sheet of ice. With the news that B.J. Crombeen suffered a broken left shoulder, Grachev may see regular duty on the fourth line.

Blues' Grachev Helping Himself

News: Blues coach Davis Payne said Evgeny Grachev, who scored his third goal of the preseason Friday night, is "helping himself every time he puts the jersey on," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev has been playing the whole rink and that impresses a coach like nothing else. In addition to his goal Friday, he also had one sequence on the penalty kill where he stole the puck from Colorado's Matt Duchene and set up a scoring chance. "I'm not even thinking, I'm just trying to play the game as it comes," said Grachev, who was acquired from the New York Rangers for a third-round pick this summer. "In this league, you can't just be a scorer, or do one thing. You've got to do everything. It's a two-way game."

Blues' Grachev Stays Hot

News: Evgeny Grachev scored his third goal of the preseason Friday night in St. Louis' 3-2 win over Colorado.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev is playing like someone who's happy to be out of the Rangers' organization. He's making an early push for one of the available forward spots on the Blues' roster and, if this keeps up, he could find himself playing a larger role than anticipated.

Grachev Scores Twice For The Blues

News: Evgeny Grachev scored two goals in Tuesday's preseason win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Evgeny Grachev is on the fringe of making the Blues' roster out of camp, but got a favorable lineup Tuesday night, skating on a line with David Backes and Jamie Langenbrunner. This was the preseason opener for both teams, so while this was encouraging for Grachev, don't read too much into one game.
