Blues' Shattenkirk Picks Up Assist In Game 6 Loss

News: Kevin Shattenkirk picked up his eighth assist of the playoffs in Sunday's series-ending loss to the Wild. He was minus-2 with two shots and a hit in the contest.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk will exit the playoffs tied for the playoff lead in scoring. While the Blues could be in for a shake up after yet another early playoff exit, Shattenkirk seems unlikely to be headed anywhere after posting a break out season with 44 points and a plus-19 rating in 53 games. Only a mid-season abdominal injury kept him from being among the top handful of scoring leaders among defensemen.

Blues' Shattenkirk Picks Up Three Assists In Win

News: Kevin Shattenkirk picked up three assists Wednesday in a Game 4 win over the Wild. He was plus-3 with one hit and two blocked shots in the game.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk leads all players in the playoffs with seven assists and is tied for the playoff scoring lead with those seven points. He was having an incredible season before an abdominal injury caused him to miss 26 games, but has obviously recovered well. Shattenkirk's presence makes the Blues a much more dynamic team and a legitimate contender for the Stanley Cup.

Shattenkirk An Assist Machine For Blues

News: Kevin Shattenkirk picked up two more assists Saturday against the Wild, giving him four points in the Round One series.
Analysis: We hope you picked him for your playoff pool -- the Blues are starting to look like a well-oiled machine.

Shattenkirk Assists Twice In Blues' Game 1 Loss

News: Kevin Shattenkirk picked up two assists -- one shorthanded -- in Thursday's Game 1 loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Those who have owned Shatternkirk this year are not likely surprised, as he's been a dynamo for the Blues when healthy, racking up 44 points in 56 games. Interestingly, though, the shorthanded helper Thursday was his first point with a Blue in the penalty box this season.

Blues' Shattenkirk Rested Saturday

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (rest) isn't participating in warmups and won't play Saturday against the Wild, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Both the Blues and Wild are resting a number of key players with their playoff spots secure, while also exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship due to the high probability of the two teams facing each other in the first round. Kevin Shattenkirk will finish the regular season with eight goals and 44 points over 56 games.

Blues' Shattenkirk Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Kevin Shattenkirk picked up an assist on the power play Sunday in a 2-1 win over Chicago. He was plus-1, had one shot, two hits, and two blocked shots in the game.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk has points in consecutive games after not putting any points in his first three games back from a long absence due to an abdominal injury. His season was derailed by the more than 20 games he missed, but he still has more than 40 points and is plus-20 on the season. The all-star defenseman will help in any league that continues into the playoffs and he will be a top pick in fantasy leagues for 2015-16.

Blues' Shattenkirk Contributes Two Assists

News: Kevin Shattenkirk registered two assists and fired four shots on goal in Friday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: The points were Shattnekirk's first in four games since returning from abdominal surgery. The 26-year-old now has 42 points in 53 games and is back assuming his regular role on the Blues' top power-play unit. Now that he's back to full health, make sure Kevin Shattenkirk, who sports a plus-19 rating on the season, is in your lineup every game.

Blues' Shattenkirk Confirmed To Be In Saturday

News: Coach Ken Hitchcock confirmed after Friday's practice that Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jackets. The Blues have officially activated him from injured reserve.
Analysis: The Blues cushioned the loss of Kevin Shattenkirk a bit by acquiring Zbynek Michalek and Robert Bortuzzo at the trade deadline, but they'll welcome the All-Star's return with open arms for the stretch run. Prior to going down with the injury, Shattenkirk ranked among the league scoring leaders from the blue line, producing eight goals and 40 points in 49 games. Expect Shattenkirk to see his usual 20-plus minutes of ice time in his first game since Feb. 1.

Blues' Shattenkirk Has Saturday Return In Sights

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) practiced fully Friday and said he's "ready to go" for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk skated on the Blues' second defensive pairing next to Barret Jackman and slotted in on the power play, both of which would seemingly suggest he'll return to the lineup for the first time since Feb. 1. The All-Star blueliner, who accumulated eight goals and 40 points in 49 games prior to requiring surgery, still remains listed on the team's injured reserve list, but figures to be formally activated following Saturday's morning skate.

Blues' Shattenkirk Likely Back Saturday

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdomen) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock had suggested over the last couple of days that Kevin Shattenkirk was close to a return, and Wednesday's demotion of blueliner Petteri Lindbohm would seemingly verify as much. Shattenkirk's All-Star season was interrupted by abdominal surgery in early February, but after he was able to practice with the team the last few days and work out on the power-play unit Tuesday, the Blues believe he'll be ready to go. With eight goals, 40 points, and a plus-18 rating over his 49 games prior to suffering the injury, Shattenkirk should be automatically plugged back into fantasy lineups once his return is confirmed by the team.

Blues' Shattenkirk Takes Part In Morning Skate

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) took part in the Blues' morning skate Tuesday, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock relayed after the skate that Kevin Shattenkirk's return should be "pretty quick," though he didn't offer a much more precise timetable beyond that. Shattenkirk saw some involvement during power-play drills with the team Tuesday, but probably need a few more contact sessions with the Blues before being activated from IR. His impending return will provide a huge boost to the team's defensive ranks before the playoffs begin.

Blues' Shattenkirk Won't Play During Road Trip

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) will not return to the Blues' lineup during their three-game road trip beginning Saturday in Minnesota, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk is still progressing from his injury and was able to take part in battle drills during Friday's practice session, but the Blues' medical staff likely wants him to get a few more workouts in before he's cleared to play. The blueliner hasn't played since Feb. 1, but still ranks in the top 20 in the NHL in defenseman scoring with 40 points.

Blues' Shattenkirk Takes Part In Morning Skate

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) took to the ice with his teammates during Tuesday's morning session, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk won't play in Tuesday's game against the Jets, but his participation in line rushes during practice seemingly represents another positive step for the blueliner in his recovery. The Blues are still listing Shattenkirk as week-to-week, however, as he still needs further time to strengthen his groin and get his conditioning up to par. The Blues don't have a target date for Shattenkirk's return, but his recent activity suggests a late-March activation from IR might be a reasonable expectation.

Blues' Shattenkirk Skates Friday

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdomen) skated on his own after Friday's practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk isn't expected to return until the second half of March, so his presence on the ice shouldn't be viewed as a sign that his activation is on the horizon. Even so, it does qualify as progress for the blueliner, who ranked among the league leaders at his position with 40 points in 49 games before requiring abdominal surgery in February. He might be able to start practicing with the rest of the team at some point next week.

Blues' Shattenkirk Likely Not Back Until Late Mar.

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdomen) is considered unlikely to return until late March, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blues previously didn't provide a clear timetable for Kevin Shattenkirk's return, but a late-March date at least gives his fantasy owners some idea of when to expect him back. Shattenkirk resumed skating earlier this week, but isn't expected to take full contact in the near future.

Blues' Shattenkirk Resumes Skating

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdomen) has resumed skating after undergoing abdominal surgery three weeks ago, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock also reported that Kevin Shattenkirk was skating well and received positive updates from the team's training staff. There's still no timetable for a return to game action though, so Shattenkirk could still be out for the team's next few contests.

Blues Place Shattenkirk On IR

News: Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: With two games remaining on their road trip, it seems likely that the Blues may want to have a roster spot open to recall an extra blueliner as insurance. With Kevin Shattenkirk expected to miss multiple weeks following surgery, he was the logical candidate to head to IR to open up a roster spot.

Blues' Shattenkirk Will Have Abdominal Surgery

News: Kevin Shattenkirk will undergo abdominal surgery in the next 7-10 days and should be considered week-to-week after the procedure is complete, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The All-Star defenseman was injured during Sunday's game against the Capitals. His timetable for return seems to be dependent on how his body responds to the surgery, meaning that his owners will have to put him on the shelf for now and continually check his status over the next few weeks. In his absence, Chris Butler will likely take on a larger role moving forward.

Blues' Shattenkirk Out With Lower-Body Injury

News: Kevin Shattenkirk won't return to Sunday's contest due to a lower-body injury, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk left midway through the first period with the injury, and now it has been diagnosed as lower body. He won't return to Sunday's game, making his next chance to come back Tuesday against the Lightning. However, the team should provide an update on his status at some point prior to the opening faceoff.

Blues' Shattenkirk Leaves With Injury

News: Kevin Shattenkirk left Sunday's game early in the first period due to a possible head injury, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk may have taken an elbow to the head from Alexander Ovechkin, and was slow to get up. He headed straight to the locker room, and his status should be updated by the team in short order.

Blues' Shattenkirk Delivers Shootout Winner

News: Kevin Shattenkirk took a game-high eight shots on goal through regulation and overtime Thursday, but couldn't get any of them past the Preds' Carter Hutton until the shootout, in which he registered the game-winning tally. He also picked up an assist.
Analysis: The eight shots also tied his career high -- he put eight on goal on Dec. 6 of this season. Kevin Shattenkirk's game just keeps on growing, and there are few better defenders to own in fantasy.

Blues' Shattenkirk Notches Game-Winner

News: Kevin Shattenkirk notched a game-winning goal and was on the ice for both of the Blues' other two tallies in Saturday's 3-0 triumph over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk completely erased the minus-3 he took two nights earlier to bring his season plus/minus back up to a robust plus-3. The goal also gave him his 39th point of the season, a total which puts him in a tie for first among all NHL blueliners.

Blues' Shattenkirk Named To All-Star Team

News: Kevin Shattenkirk was one of two Blues (along with Vladimir Tarasenko) named to the 2015 All-Star Team.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk is certainly deserving as he leads NHL defensemen in points with 37 and plus/minus with a plus-18 rating.

Blues' Shattenkirk Keeps Rolling

News: Kevin Shattenkirk picked up an assist on a power-play goal Thursday in the Blues' blowout with over the Sharks. He took four shots and blocked two in the win.
Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk ranks fifth in the league in assists and now ranks first in scoring among defensemen, as he busts out in a huge way. With 36 points in 41 games he is just nine points shy of his career high (45) that he set last year with half the season remaining. His plus-18 is the cherry on top of a great first half.
