The Blues acquired Justin Faulk for Joel Edmundson a few days ago, and so far, fans haven’t had an opportunity to see him in action. He didn’t make the long trip to Calumet, MI yesterday, and that’s probably for the best considering the scatttershot performance the team gave in their 4-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Tonight, though, fans in Enterprise Center will get a chance to see the newest blue take to the ice.
Berube says that Pietrangelo will start on the left side. Justin Faulk expected to make his preseason debut on the right tonight. #stlblues @KMOV pic.twitter.com/dqpvSTpNOy— Brooke Grimsley (@BrookeGrimsley) September 27, 2019
Tonight’s line-up features some regulars, some top potential call-ups, and a few prospects who are doing a great job of hanging around.
Forwards: Ivan Barbashev, Tyler Bozak, Mackenzie MacEachern, Jordan Nolan, Ryan Olsen, Austin Poganski, Zach Sanford, Brayden Schenn, Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen, Vladimir Tarasenko, Nathan Walker.
Defense: Andreas Borgman, Jay Bouwmeester, Justin Faulk, Niko Mikkola, Alex Pietrangelo, Mitch Reinke
Goalies: Ville Husso, Adam Wilcox
After tonight, the Blues have only one more pre-season game left before they see the Capitals again Wednesday night for a banner raising.
Things are taking shape for game one. Five more days.
