THE REGULARS:

This part of the feature is in real jeopardy of becoming a legitimate jinx.

Since Vladimir Tarasenko and Jori Lehtera were made "permanent" fixtures in this weekly report three weeks ago, the two have put up six points in eight games (Tarasenko) and four pooints in five games (Lehtera). Lehtera has also, apparently, been benched by Sibir Novosibirsk, as he did not play in any of Sibir's games this week.

Jaden Schwartz, on the other hand, continues to impact the scoresheet at better than a point-per-game pace, but his plus-minus took a hit this weekend during a series split with Nebraska-Omaha.

AFTER THE JUMP:

As it was last week, this week has been a good one for goaltenders in the Blues' system. Both Peoria netminders make the cut this week, keeping games close even as the Rivs' offense takes a vacation. The Blues' top college prospect after Schwartz, their top major junior scoring prospect, and a new face from Europe also take their places in the "Fab Five" this week. After the jump, your weekly look at the players in the Blues' organization who are "Trending Up." Stay tuned...
