One day after a bad 4-3 shootout loss to Calgary — one in which they blew a two-goal lead in the third period — the Blues sent forwards Dmitry Jaskin and Chris Porter to AHL Chicago.
Jaskin, 20, was the club’s second-round pick (41st overall) at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and has been a good scorer in the American league this season, with 17 points in 20 games. He made his ’13-14 season debut last night against Calgary and finished with no points and two shots in 11:12 TOI.
Porter, 29, has appeared in six games this season for the Blues (he did not take part in the loss to the Flames, however.) He’s scoreless this season and has yet to rediscover chemistry with his CPR linemates from last year — Ryan Reaves and Adam Cracknell — as Cracknell has only played 12 games for the Blues this year while Reaves is currently on IR with a broken hand.
