The St. Louis Blues have placed Adam Cracknell on waivers, one day after activating forward Ryan Reaves from injured reserve.

Cracknell, 28, has only appeared in 14 games for St. Louis this year, scoring two points while averaging 7:19 TOI per game. The former WHL Kootenay standout rose to prominence last postseason on the Blues’ CPR Line but failed to have a similar impact this season, as linemates Reaves and Chris Porter have been in and out of the lineup. (Porter was also put on waivers earlier this season.)

The Blues inked Cracknell to a one-year, $600,000 contract extension in May.

As for Reaves, the 26-year-old was activated on Thursday after missing 17 games with a broken hand. The tough guy suited up in yesterday’s 5-0 win over Los Angeles, playing 9:01 while dishing out four hits.

    Porter has played very well since his return from waivers.

    Cracknell hasn’t been bad. Blues just have too much depth now that guys are starting to return from injuries. Not that I’m complaining…

    Best of luck to KRAKENell

    Released the Cracknell? He will get picked up in about 5 minutes.

    Rob Ford wants the Leafs to get him. He sees no problem with more Crack in the city.

    Looks like the CPR line won’t be resuscitated any time soon.

    Somebody should snap him up- always gave 100%, tough, would occasionally show a flash of offensive skill. But, it was obvious there would be casualties when they brought in Roy, Morrow, and Lapierre. Good news- Leopold is back. I’m guessing Carlo goes.

      Carlo is definitely gone. Hopefully Polak returns soon- Cole has improved in each game. He still has a knack for bad turnovers and letting players get behind him, but he’s doing better.
