St. Louis Blues Olympic Player Stats Through Qualifying Round

 

Eight of the nine St. Louis Blues players that went to the 2014 Winter Olympics are still active. Only Jaroslav Halak and the Slovakian team have been eliminated from medal contention so far. We’re to the “elite eight” portion of the tournament, and the United States, Sweden, Russia and Canada are all still alive and playing.

That could change by this time tomorrow, but right now almost every Blue in Sochi still has a chance to add to his statline in the quarterfinal round.

Since Vladimir Sobotka wasn’t able to head to Russia to play for the Czech Republic, no Blues will actually square off against one another through the four games tomorrow. Not sure what the statistical improbability of that is, but it seems incredibly strange.

No matter, here’s the stats for every Blue in Sochi through the qualifying round.

David Backes - USA – 3 GP, 2 G, plus-two

Kevin Shattenkirk - USA – 3 GP, 0 G, 2 A, plus-two

    Love that pic on the US bench. Great to see Steener contribute this morning to send Sweden to the Semi’s. Tarasenko has had chances today v. Finland but Raask has been standing on his head against Russia

    When did Tarasenko get a goal? Against who?

    • Franklin Steele

      Totally my fault. I got Tereshenko confused with Tarasenko. Russian players have been spelling their names differently in Sochi, which caused the confusion. Apologies!
