Carl Gunnarsson Out For The Season With ACL Tear

(Mar. 23, 2018) – St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced tonight that defenseman Carl Gunnarsson will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ACL tear in his left knee during the first period of the Blues’ 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.  After leaving the ice, Gunnarsson was evaluated by Dr. Matt Matava and Dr. Matt Smith before being taken to Barnes West County Hospital where an MRI revealed the tear.  He will undergo surgery once the swelling in his knee subsides and will be re-evaluated in six months.

Gunnarsson, 31, has dressed in 63 games for the Blues this season, posting nine points (five goals, four assists) and 22 penalty minutes.  The 6’2, 198-pound defenseman is currently in his fourth season with the Blues after the club acquired him via trade from the Toronto Maple Leafs on June 28, 2014.  Overall, the Orebro, Sweden, native has appeared in 556 career NHL regular season games, amassing 122 points (25 goals, 97 assists) and 151 penalty minutes.

As is usual at this time of year, teams are looking for help on defense

From the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch:

"Lots of teams looking for a defenceman," said a league executive, "and they all want one that can play in the top four."

Well, good luck with that.

Still, a sniff around NHL circles by telephone indicates there are plenty of teams that would like blueline help as the important U.S. Thanksgiving quickly approaches at the end of November. The list is long and, of course, the the list of actual players who can provide that kind of assistance is pretty short.

That hasn't stopped teams from looking. Sources say Columbus, Toronto, Los Angeles, Ottawa, Calgary, San Jose, Buffalo and Boston are on a list of more than 10 teams that are looking for somebody who can play in their top four immediately.

"Since those guys aren't available you have to decide if there's a guy who is a No. 5 on a team right now that can maybe help you in your top four," the executive added.

There aren't many in the names of blueliners being shopped: Trevor Daley (Chicago), Matt Carle (Tampa), Justin Braun (San Jose), Braydon Coburn (Tampa), Ron Hainsey (Carolina), Carl Gunnarsson (St. Louis), Jake Gardiner (Toronto) and Kris Russell (Calgary).

Carl Gunnarsson On Playing With The Blues

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

In five NHL seasons, Gunnarsson has produced 15 goals, 86 points and a plus-minus rating of plus-15. In 2013-14, he played in a career-high 80 games and was a plus-13, despite the fact that Toronto ranked No. 26 in the league in goals-against per game (3.07).

“I try to do my best,” Gunnarsson said. “I’m more of a team guy than anything. If guys can play their game when they play next to me, that’s what I’m there for. I’m not a flashy guy who shows off any super skills or anything like that. I just try to come to work every day and make everyone else better — whatever is good for the team.”

The Blues have been searching for a lefthanded shooting defenseman to play with Kevin Shattenkirk and perhaps also take some of the load off Jay Bouwmeester by playing with Alex Pietrangelo.

“We’ll see how that works out during training camp,” Gunnarsson said. “I guess they have a plan with me, but whoever I play with, it’s going to be fun. Shattenkirk and Pietrangelo — two great D-men — if I play with any of those guys, it’s going to be a fun season.”...

Gunnarsson is not skating yet this offseason. After dealing with multiple issues in his left hip the past two seasons, he had surgery in late April to repair a labrum tear and help facilitate a condition which he’s had since birth.

Garrioch says Leafs, Pens are aggressively pursuing trades

The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch delivers a significant amount of player personnel, front office and team intrigue in his weekly rumor roundup, but I believe that we call the following "going to one's wheelhouse":

Dave Nonis is described as patient.

His is being put to the test big-time by the Toronto Maple Leafs. After falling out of a playoff position, league sources say the club’s GM has been working the phones hard trying to find some depth up front to help the struggling club.

To get assistance, Nonis will likely have to move a defenceman and since Dion Phaneuf just signed a seven-year, $49-million extension he isn’t going anywhere. The names of Carl Gunnarsson and Jake Gardiner could be trade bait.

At the very least, it’s all intruiging.

The second most-active GM to trying make a deal: Pittsburgh’s Ray Shero and he has been dangling prospects because of all the injuries the club has had. He is looking to move a young defenceman for a forward.
