Blues' Lapierre Finds Twine Tuesday

News: Maxim Lapierre found the net for his ninth goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre's goal was the Blues' only tally of the game, which has become a familiar refrain with the offense going stagnant over the last few games. St. Louis typically only relies on Lapierre for his hitting acumen as the fourth-line center, with any offense he provides an added bonus.

Blues Activate Lapierre

News: Maxim Lapierre (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: It looks like he'll be in the lineup Thursday against the Rangers, likely as the fourth-line center for the Blues. Maxim Lapierre missed five games due to the injury.

Blues' Lapierre May Play Thursday

News: Coach Ken Hitchcock said Maxim Lapierre (lower body) could return to the lineup Thursday vs. the Rangers, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The team was previously eyeing a weekend return for Maxim Lapierre, and while that will more than likely still be the case, the forward has evidently made enough progress in the last few days to lead Hitchcock to reconsider the return timetable. Lapierre has yet to be activated from IR, but if that changes over the afternoon, it would probably be an indication that he'll be back in the lineup Thursday.

Blues' Lapierre Could Be Back Over Weekend

News: Maxim Lapierre (lower body) could be back from injured reserve over the weekend, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: His return will be determined based on how he progresses through his rehab program over the rest of the week. Maxim Lapierre has seen most of his ice time as the Blues' fourth-line center this season, posting six goals and three assists over 39 games.

Blues' Lapierre Will Travel But Without Timetable

News: Maxim Lapierre (lower body) will travel with the team on its upcoming four-game road trip, but remains without a timetable for a return, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It sounds like Maxim Lapierre will miss a fourth straight game Monday with the lower-body injury, and his status for the rest of the trip is up in the air. His ability to travel does, however, bode well for his chances of returning at some point next week.

Blues' Lapierre Gets Some Work In Wednesday

News: Maxim Lapierre (lower body) was on the ice in a limited capacity for Wednesday's practice, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre fired some shots and skated hard for a few shifts before heading off the ice for the day. The fourth-liner was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, but is eligible to play as soon as Saturday.

Blues' Lapierre Placed On IR

News: Maxim Lapierre (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With Maxim Lapierre's placement on IR, the 28-year-old will be ineligible to play until Saturday, though it's uncertain whether he'll be ready by then. Roman Polak (ankle) was activated to take Lapierre's place on the active roster.

Blues' Lapierre Nursing Lower-Body Injury

News: Maxim Lapierre is nursing a lower-body injury sustained in Friday's game against the Canucks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The injury occurred late in the game Friday, so it wasn't apparent at the time that Maxim Lapierre was forced to leave the game for anything other than the clock set to run out. Coach Ken Hitchcock said the center is exercising on his own, but is not yet able to skate. He'll be reevaluated Tuesday before the Blues decide on a course of action.

Lapierre Fills His Role For Blues

News: Maxim Lapierre, averaging a modest 10:24 per game, continues to take on the role as fourth line antagonist.
Analysis: St. Louis signed Maxim Lapierre for his gritty play and ability to disrupt the other teams' better players. So far he has done his job but it does not relate to him being on your roster.

Blues' Lapierre To Return Friday

News: Maxim Lapierre (suspension) will return to the lineup Friday against the Panthers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre is done serving the five-game suspension handed to him by the league for his hit on the Sharks' Dan Boyle back on Oct. 15. He figures to take the place of Brenden Morrow (upper body) along the fourth line.

Blues' Lapierre Suspended For Five Games

News: Maxim Lapierre will be suspended five games for his illegal hit on the Sharks' Dan Boyle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford reports.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre was held out of Thursday's win over the Blackhawks following an in-person hearing at the league offices in New York on Tuesday, so he'll only have four more games of the suspension left to serve. He'll be eligible to return Nov. 1 against the Panthers.

Blues' Lapierre Getting In-Person Hearing

News: The NHL has requested an in-person hearing for Maxim Lapierre for his hit on Dan Boyle on Tuesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. That hearing will take place in New York on Friday.
Analysis: Typically that means the upcoming suspension will be longer than five games. With shorter suspensions, the hearing is done over the phone.

Blues Lapierre Could Receive Suspension

News: The Blues' Maxim Lapierre laid a hit on Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle who was subsequently taken off the ice on a stretcher.
Analysis: The hit seemed routine at the time, albeit from behind. However, replays showed that Boyle's jaw struck the dasher boards as Maxim Lapierre finished his check. If you have Lapierre, watch for a potential suspension after the league reviews the play.

Blues' Lapierre Nets Two In Preseason Debut

News: Maxim Lapierre scored twice in the Blues' first preseason game Sunday, playing on a line with enforcer Ryan Reaves and rookie Sergey Andronov.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre is not void of offensive talent, as he posted 15 goals for Montreal in 2008-09. He could conceivably do the same this season, considering all the talent around him, but the Blues signed him for his physical play and ability to frustrate the opponent's top players. It would be wise to temper your expectations for Lapierre in fantasy this year.

Blues Sign Lapierre To Two-Year Contract

News: St. Louis has signed Maxim Lapierre to a two-year contract according to, stlblues.com
Analysis: This move could be meant to shore up the position vacated by checker Scott Nichol. The 6-2 forward spent the bulk of his time on the fourth line in Vancouver. Maxim Lapierre has eight seasons under his belt, including stints with Montreal, Anaheim and Vancouver, totaling 113 points (54 goals, 59 assists) and 476 penalty minutes in 463 regular season games.

Canucks' Lapierre Not Hampered By Groin Injury

News: Maxim Lapierre saw over 12 minutes of ice time in Friday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre missed Thursday's practice with a sore groin, but he was out there in his usual role Friday night. The fourth-liner should be safe to deploy going forward if you're using him for penalty minutes or hits.

Canucks' Lapierre Won't Miss Any Action

News: Maxim Lapierre, who sat out Thursday's practice with a sore groin, will play Friday at Anaheim, according to the Vancouver Province.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre is still in some pain, but with Manny Malhotra's wife having a baby there's not as much luxury to sit another forward out. Lapierre will slot in on the fourth line with Andrew Ebbett and Aaron Volpatti.

Canucks' Lapierre (Groin) Misses Practice

News: Maxim Lapierre sat out Thursday's practice with a sore groin, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre tweaked his groin during Wednesday's win over the Flames. He's expected to test out the injury during the morning's skate before his status for Friday's tilt against the Ducks is determined.

Canucks' Lapierre Centers Third Line

News: Maxim Lapierre skated with the third line during Tuesday's practice, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre is set to see action centering the Canucks' third and fourth lines for the third consecutive season. He'll rack up solid PIM and hit totals, but Lapierre's meager offensive production will limit his overall fantasy value.

Vancouver's Lapierre Has Strong Night Friday

News: Maxim Lapierre picked up a goal and assisted on two others as Vancouver downed Dallas 5-2 on Friday. He finished the evening with three shots on goal and a plus-3 rating.
Analysis: It was his first goal since February 9th, a span of 24 games. He skated with the first line Friday night, lining up at left wing alongside Henrik Sedin and Alex Burrows. Maxim Lapierre is not known for his offense, but he could get a couple of more games skating with the top line after his solid showing Friday.

Canucks' Lapierre Struggling To Pick Up Points

News: Maxim Lapierre has been held off the score sheet in 10 consecutive games.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre is centering the Canucks' fourth line, so his scoring opportunities will continue to be limited going forward.

Canucks' Lapierre Scores In Loss

News: Maxim Lapierre scored the Canucks' lone goal in Tuesday's loss to Columbus.
Analysis: Maxim Lapierre was solid across the board Tuesday -- he had the goal, laid four hits and went 4-for-5 on faceoffs.

Lapierre's Brace Carry Canucks Over Caps

News: Maxim Lapierre scored twice and delivered five hits in Vancouver's free-for-all 7-4 win over Washington on Saturday night. He fired six shots and finished plus-3.
Analysis: These are all wonderful numbers, but if you expect them to recur on a regular basis, you need to have someone else manage your retirement accounts. He has four points (3G, 1A) after 11 games, but we'll be surprised if he cracks the 20-point mark on the season.

Canucks Re-Sign Lapierre

News: The Canucks re-signed Lapierre to a two-year deal Monday, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Lapierre notched just one goal in 19 games after coming over to the Canucks in a deadline deal, but he proved to be a valuable commodity to the Canucks while centering the third and fourth lines. He'll likely have a similar role next year, so don't expect much point production from the 26-year-old forward.

Lapierre Scores In Canucks' Loss

News: Lapierre grabbed Vancouver's second goal in Monday's 5-2, Game 6 loss to Boston, the second-consecutive game in which Lapierre has scored.
Analysis: Lapierre apparently recovered from his near-mortal injuries during the course of play to slam home a late goal for the Canucks. He's not relied upon for his offensive prowess, and his phantom injuries occasionally set up a power play.
