St. Louis Game Time PROSPECT SUNDAYS


Defense header

The last two first-round picks by the Blues have been defensemen, and both of those players gave hints in the last week as to why they were taken in that round.

2009 first-round pick (17th overall) David Rundblad only picked up one assist in two games played this week for Skellefteå AIK in the Swedish Elite League (Elitserien), but chipped in solid defense with a plus-4 mark for the week.

Meanwhile, 2008 first-rounder Alex Pietrangelo (4th overall) showed that he was adjusting to his new teammates in Barrie of the OHL with three assists in four games, two minutes in the penalty box, and a sparkling plus-7 mark.

Goalies header

The Blues' goaltending prospects, unfortunately, didn't fare nearly so well in the past seven days.

Excluding Swiss prospect Reto Berra, for whom a statistical update is not available, the Blues' four top goalie prospects -- Jake Allen (Drummondville/QMJHL), Ben Bishop (Peoria/AHL), Paul Karpowich (Clarkson/ECAC) and Hannu Toivonen (Peoria/AHL) -- allowed 23 goals on 181 shots in 371 total minutes played, while posting a combined 1-6-0 win-loss record.

Those numbers equate to a combined 3.72 goals-against average, and and 87.3% save percentage.
