I have long been a big fan of St. Louis Blues rookie right winger, #91, Vladimir Tarasenko. His incredible skill, play, and determination have stood out his entire career. The fans in St. Louis had been anxiously awaiting his arrival while much of the hockey world didn’t know his name, but they do now. Too Many Men On the Site, Fansided’s NHL blog, included a headline story about the young Russian this morning that details his current level of play and why he is having so much success.
Meanwhile, in St. Louis, on Reddit and on Twitter, Blues fans are asking for a certain gif file to be played every time Tarasenko lights the lamp. If they succeed, we might be seeing it quite a bit in the near future. While Blues fans are thrilled with Tarasenko’s play, the national attention will only help the franchise as they continue to build on the success on the ice.
Look for more about Tarasenko here on Bleedin’ Blue, but expect to start hearing his name more and more on the NHL Network, ESPN, and all the major sports outlets.
LET’S GO BLUES!
