Blues' Gunnarsson Nets Goal

News: Carl Gunnarsson netted a rare goal in Monday's victory over the Avalanche.
Analysis: It's just the second tally in 29 games on the season for the rearguard, who does his best work in front of the Blues' netminders. On a team with as much offensive firepower as the Blues, Carl Gunnarsson simply isn't relied upon to be much of a puck mover, limiting his fantasy upside to an extent.

Blues Activate Gunnarsson (Concussion)

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) was activated from injured reserve and will play Friday against the Ducks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson has been out since Dec. 6 with the concussion, resulting in his second lengthy absence of the season after offseason hip surgery delayed his debut. The Blues plan to plug him in on the second pairing with Kevin Shattenkirk, where he'll function primary as a stay-at-home type.

Gunnarsson (Concussion) Practices

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson's presence in practice lends more credence to the belief that he'll return to the ice Friday in Anaheim. Barring a setback, the defenseman should be expected to take the ice.

Blues' Gunnarsson Expected Back Friday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) is expected to return for Friday's game in Anaheim, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: While he hasn't played since early December, Carl Gunnarsson is now viewed as day-to-day. He's apparently unlikely to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Predators, leaving Friday as the expected return date.

Blues' Gunnarsson (Concussion) Skates Saturday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) skated with the team at Saturday's morning session.
Analysis: While Carl Gunnarsson won't suit up for Saturday's game with the Stars, coach Ken Hitchcock noted that the blueliner is now being viewed as day-to-day. Since he's been sidelined since Dec. 6, he may need another full practice or two to get his conditioning up to par, but a return to the lineup at some point next week would seem realistic.

Blues' Gunnarsson (Concussion) Not Yet Ready

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) is not ready to rejoin the team for Thursday's game against the Kings, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson is recovering from a concussion, and although he has started skating with the team, he'll need a little more practice time before getting activated.

Blues' Gunnarsson Skates With Team Tuesday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) skated with the team Tuesday morning, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson is set to miss his fourth straight game with the concussion, but his participation with the team signals he might not be far off a return. Coach Ken Hitchcock indicated that Gunnarsson has been cleared for full contact, but still needs to get in some conditioning work before he'll be activated from IR.

Blues' Gunnarsson Gets In Some Work

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) was on the ice for a workout Friday, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson was able to skate, handle the puck and take part in endurance drills in what was believed to be his first on-ice work since being diagnosed with a concussion. He's still awaiting clearance for contact, but his activity Friday would seem to represent an encouraging development.

Blues Transfer Gunnarsson To IR

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock had noted over the last couple of days that Carl Gunnarsson was making no notable progress with his recovery from the concussion, which made it likely that the Blues would be without the defenseman's services for multiple games. With that in mind, Gunnarsson was transferred to IR to open up a 23-man roster spot, which will be filled by the now-healthy Jay Bouwmeester (groin). There's no timetable yet for Gunnarsson's return.

Blues' Gunnarsson To Sit Out Thursday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) will sit out Thursday's game against the Islanders, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson hasn't shown an improvement with his condition since taking an elbow to the head from the Islanders' Anders Lee over the weekend. He'll miss his second straight contest.

Leafs' Gunnarsson Out For Monday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (face) will not play Monday against the Panthers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson is still feeling the effects of being elbowed by the Islanders' Anders Lee over the weekend, and looks like he's in danger of missing even more time. The blueliner recorded a goal and four assists in 20 games before the injury.

Blues' Gunnarsson Doubtful For Monday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (upper body) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Panthers, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson took an elbow to the face Saturday from the Islanders' Anders Lee and was forced to exit the contest. It's not clear if Lee will receive a suspension on what appeared to be a dirty hit, nor if Gunnarsson is dealing with a concussion as a result of the hit. The Blues should have a better idea of his health as the week progresses.

Blues' Gunnarsson Exits With Upper Body Injury

News: Carl Gunnarsson (upper body) will not return to Saturday's contest, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson failed to record a point in just under nine minutes of action prior to exiting. Look for Chris Butler to be one candidate to replace Gunnarsson's position on the second defensive pairing, with Petteri Lindbohm or Ian Cole also poised to see additional work.

Gunnarsson Scores First Goal With Blues

News: Carl Gunnarsson scored his first goal as a member of the Blues, adding an assist and a plus-3 rating, in Thursday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: A heck of a game for Carl Gunnarsson, who had gone six straight games without a point. He's not known for his offense, never having kicked in more than 20 points in a season, so this is unlikely to be the start of a big bust-out.

Blues Gunnarsson Picks Up First Point

News: Carl Gunnarsson had an assist Thursday in a win over the Ducks. He was plus-1 and took one shot in just 10:43 of ice time.
Analysis: This was Carl Gunnarsson's second game of the season and first point since joining the Blues in an offseason trade from Toronto. His ice time should ramp up going forward as his legs get stronger.

Blues' Gunnarsson Will Play Tuesday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) will play Tuesday against the Stars, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson has been sidelined for the entire season so far after undergoing offseason hip surgey, but will finally make his debut in a Blues sweater Tuesday. The blueliner recorded three goals and 14 assists in 80 games with the Maple Leafs last season.

Blues' Gunnarsson: (Hip) Still Not Ready To Go

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) still doesn't sound like he's ready to make his season debut, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: The Blues' medical staff has granted Carl Gunnarsson clearance to play and is simply waiting for the defenseman to alert them when he's good to go, but he's evidently not comfortable with his hip just yet. Jordan Leopold will continue to occupy a regular spot on defense for the Blues until Gunnarsson feels the pain in his hip has fully dissipated.

Blues' Gunnarsson Out Through Weekend

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) will not play in either of the Blues' back-to-back weekend tilts, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson resumed taking contact in practice earlier this week, but he's still trying to make up for the extensive time he missed in training camp with the hip concern. The Blues recalled Petteri Lindbohm from AHL Chicago as insurance on defense for the weekend contests, but will likely return him to the minors next week if Gunnarsson is ready to go as expected.

Blues' Gunnarsson Takes Contact Tuesday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) was on the ice Tuesday as a participant in full-contact practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock noted that Carl Gunnarsson looked good during the session, while seeing involvement in every drill. Gunnarsson is considered doubtful to play Thursday versus the Kings due to his limited practice time thus far, but a return to action in one or both of the Blues' final two games of the road trip over the weekend seems plausible.

Blues' Gunnarsson Cleared For Action

News: Carl Gunnarsson has been cleared to play by doctors, according to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson, who the Blues acquired in the off-season from Toronto, had hip surgery in the off-season and has yet to suit up for a game this season. When he will make his debut is still up in the air, but he is physically ready to do so now.

Blues' Gunnarsson Sheds Non-Contact Jersey

News: Carl Gunnarsson was able to ditch his non-contact jersey during Thursday's morning skate, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock said the team hopes to have Carl Gunnarsson cleared for full contact by Monday. After absorbing contact for three or four days, Gunnarsson could be available for the Blues at some point during the team's West Coast road trip later that week.

Blues Will Not Place Gunnarsson (Hip) On IR

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) will not be placed on injured reserve to begin the season, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson has already been ruled out for at least the first week of the season, but the Blues will attempt to get by with 22 players for the time being while their schedule remains light. In avoiding the IR move, the Blues will be able to save some salary cap space in the short-term. However, if Gunnarsson's condition doesn't improve as quickly as anticipated, the Blues may be forced to make a roster move.

Blues' Gunnarsson (Hip) Will Miss Opener

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) won't be ready for the beginning of the regular season, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson had offseason surgery to repair a hip flexor, and had to wear a red no-contact jersey at practice Friday. Coach Ken Hitchcock acknowledged the team would be without his services to start the season, but didn't give a timetable for his return. With Gunnarsson unavailable, Petteri Lindbohm's chances of cracking the 23-man roster have increased.

Blues' Gunnarsson Participating In Drills

News: Carl Gunnarsson (hip) practiced in a red no-contact jersey Saturday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Carl Gunnarsson is still recovering from offseason surgery to repair a hip flexor, and continues to participate in team drills without contact. The blueliner collected three goals and 14 assists in 80 games with the Maple Leafs last season.

Blues' Gunnerson (Hip) Skates With Team

News: Carl Gunnarsson skated with the team for the first time Tuesday, skating for 10-15 minutes, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
