Blues' Carl Gunnarsson not active because of clerical error
St. Louis Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson was ready to play Wednesday, but he wasn't taken off injured reserve in time to be active to play against the Detroit Red Wings.
Blues general managers Doug Armstrong called it a "miscommunication in the staff," so Gunnarsson had to be scratched. The Blues played with five defensemen and 13 forwards in the match as a result. Gunnarson sat out four games with an upper-body injury, but he should be in the lineup on Friday.
Gunnarsson isn't much of a fantasy asset, tallying one goal and four assists in 44 games. We project him two record one goal with five assists over the remainder of the campaign. His 50.4 Corsi For Percentage is the best mark of his career, but his -4.6 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength is well off his career average.
