St. Louis Blues DFS Spin

Vladimir Tarasenko played his first game of the season as he returned from off-season shoulder surgery. Tarasenko played 16:25 and had four shots on goal as he played on the top line with Ryan O'Reilly and Jordan Kyrou and just missed in overtime as the Blues lost 4-3 to Los Angeles. “I thought he looked really good early on,” coach Craig Berube said. “We kept his shifts short. He did some good stuff. I thought he was gonna score there in overtime. He did a good job driving wide. I thought he looked good. He skated well. He was strong. He was physical. Did a lot of good things.” Get him back in your lineup ASAP.
