The St. Louis Blues are evaluating the market for struggling defenseman Vince Dunn.

"I'm told that the Blues have engaged with teams (in) conversations about Vince Dunn," TSN's Frank Seravalli reported Tuesday on "Insider Trading."

The Blues made Dunn a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Vegas Golden Knights, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The rearguard has collected one goal and one assist while averaging 16:32 in ice time over the first six games.

Dunn signed a one-year, $1.875-million contract Dec. 31. The 24-year-old had been a restricted free agent.

He played poorly in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings, as Carl Grundstrom burned Dunn for a goal that Blues head coach Craig Berube lamented postgame.

"Gotta play better. Can't get walked one-on-one. We'll keep that in-house talking about it," Berube said.

Dunn spent his previous three NHL seasons with the Blues, who drafted him 56th overall in 2015.
