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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
