Saint Louis GM confirms Tarasenko will be traded

Published June 29, 2021 at 1:02 PM

According to TSN reporter Frank Seravalli, the St. Louis Blues are currently testing the market for their star winger Vladimir Tarasenko.

Tarasenko still holds all the cards for a potential trade as he has a full no-movement clause. However, the information is that Tarasenko has made a list of several teams he would like to be traded to. So a change of environment seems very likely.

The 29-year-old Russian forward has two years left on his contract with an annual salary of $7.5 million. In the last two seasons, he only played 34 games due to shoulder surgery, but the injury now appears to be fully healed.

At full strength, Tarasenko has shown that he is one of the best scorers in the NHL. He ranks fifth in Blues history for most goals scored as he has 218 career goals and 442 points in 531 points.

The Blues' off-season will be more than interesting as forwards Mike Hoffman, Jaden Schwartz and Tyler Bozak will all become unrestricted free agents on July 28.
