With the season extended for at least another two weeks, the Blues made the expected calls from San Antonio players on Monday to top their team.
The strikers Klim Kostin, Jordan Nolan and Austin Poganski and defenders Chris Butler, Niko Mikkola, Mitch Reinke and Jake Walman were called by the AHL.
Not on the list were two players injured at the end of the season, striker Jordan Kyrou and goalkeeper Ville Husso. Blues coach Craig Berube said Kyrou was still too upset. Husso has trained with the team, but is not yet ready to play.
No one will likely play unless extremely high levels of injury are required. After the season of San Antonio, the retrieval of players, the so-called Black Aces, required to keep them in an emergency in the form.
Nolan and Butler played for the Blues this season and Reinke played in a game last season. Mikkola was on the blue line in the opening game due to a series of injuries and suspensions, but was sent back to San Antonio after a game. This is the first call from Kostin, Poganski and Walman.
With Nolan, the blues now have two players in the squad who have won a Stanley Cup. Nolan won with the kings. He joins Oskar Sundqvist, who won with the penguins.
