Vladimir Tarasenko says he's healthy.

The St. Louis Blues sniper allayed any fears about his status for training camp after suffering a pair of injuries en route to winning the Stanley Cup in June.

"Now everything feels fine," he told NHL.com's Tom Gulitti on Thursday. "I'm still recovering, but I feel strong, I feel good and ready to go."

Tarasenko revealed he sustained a dislocated shoulder early in the Cup Final against the Boston Bruins but continued playing.

"My shoulder popped out in Game 2 in the second period," he said. "They put it back in, and I was able to finish the game."

Tarasenko had surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder last offseason but didn't require a procedure this summer.

He also had a knee scope performed following the championship victory in June.

Despite the two injuries, the 27-year-old winger didn't miss a playoff game in 2019.
