"Game Time" PROSPECT SUNDAY: 2014-15 Prospect List, Part Three

Your pre-season look at the Blues' prospect stable continues with profiles of Mackenzie Maceachern, Colton Parayko, Zach Pochiro, Austin Poganski, Ty Rattie, Santeri Saari, Jordan Schmaltz, and David Shields.

Part Three of Four.

Because this post would be enormous if it were to include all 31 prospects on the Reserve List, we're going to do this the same way we did last season and break the list up into four posts, all of which will be posted today.

For purposes of inclusion on this list, a "prospect" is defined as:

-- A player who has not yet reached his 25th birthday.

-- A player who's NHL playing rights are owned by the Blues, and is not under contract to any other organization.

-- A player meeting both of the above criteria, who is not expected to be a full-time NHL player (50+ games at the NHL level) in 2014-15.

The last criterion is what separates Jake Allen (not included as a "prospect" this season) from Dmitrij Jaskin (included as a "prospect" this season).

PLAYER CONTRACT STATUS START 2014-15 SEASON WITH:
