St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong issued the following statement Monday regarding Russian forward and 2010 Blues draft pick Vladimir Tarasenko.

"There have been inaccurate reports stating that Vladimir Tarasenko has signed a contract to play hockey in Russia. I have confirmed with the player and his agent that these reports are 100% false and Vladimir is committed to join our organization for the upcoming season. We will have no further comment on this matter."

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
