So much for the hope that Jaden Schwartz would return tonight against the Vancouver Canucks. Schwartz, who will miss his fourth game with an elbow injury, made the western Canada trip with the Blues in hopes that he’d play sooner rather than later. It appears that we’ll have to wait until Saturday night at the soonest to see Schwartz in action.
According to Jeremy Rutherford, Ty Rattie will be slotted in on a line with Robby Fabbri and scoring machine Paul Stastny. Stastny has six points in three games; if there is a line that could get Rattie going, it’s this one.
Robert Bortuzzo is in for injured defenseman Carl Gunnarsson, and Dmitrij Jaskin will play for injured center Kyle Brodziak.
