Ott, playing on top line tonight, is still adjusting to the Blues

ST. LOUIS -- There is no replacing T.J. Oshie, who does just about everything for the Blues. This includes setting the tempo and energy level that helped his club finish with one of its best seasons in franchise history. When scanning the St. Louis roster, Steve Ott probably doesn't stick out as the most likely candidate to fill the void created by Oshie's absence on the...

Steve Ott jokes about having one of the NHL’s worst plus/minus ratings ☆

The plus/minus statistic is a silly one. It tries to paint a picture of an NHL skater’s value outside of scoring goals and assists, specifically if they’re on the ice for more goals scored than goals allowed, but it’s extremely limited. If you ever hear an argument made and plus/minus is the leading talking point, take it with a grain of salt. With that being said, it’s always...

Blues prepare for visiting Stars with a few lineup changes

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues will get another look at their "Dallas Stars" third line of Brenden Morrow, Derek Roy and Steve Ott tonight against the visiting Dallas Stars.

Trades turn long-suffering Blues into Cup favorites

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Scotty Bowman never thought much about building a tradition when he got his first NHL head coaching gig in 1968 with the expansion St. Louis Blues. "I was just hoping to get the ship righted," said Bowman, an assistant who took over the team mid-season when coach Lynn Patrick resigned after a slow start.

Steve Ott: No contract talks with Sabres, wants to stay but knows situation
