Faulk Placed on Injured Reserve
Justin Faulk (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday and is regarded as week-to-week, per Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Faulk hasn’t been in the lineup since Jan. 23, so he can be activated whenever he’s healthy. He has two goals, 19 points, 47 hits and 77 blocks in 40 outings in 2023-24. With Faulk still unavailable, Tyler Tucker might get some work with the Blues.
Thompson Scores Power-Play Goal in Loss
Tage Thompson scored a power-play goal in Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to the Stars. He tied the game at 1-1 early in the second period with a one-timer from the faceoff dot, but it was the only offense the Sabres could muster. Thompson managed only one assist in the seven games prior to the All-Star break, so Tuesday’s tally is a good sign he could be about to heat up again. It’s been a disappointing campaign for the 26-year-old overall — through 40 contests he’s produced just 15 goals and 29 points.
