Report: Blues exploring trade options for Tarasenko
Tarasenko has a full no-trade clause but has reportedly told St. Louis of several teams for which he'd be willing to waive it. The 29-year-old has two years remaining on his current contract with a $7.5-million annual cap hit.
Tarasenko has been limited to 34 regular-season games over the last two seasons due to a lingering shoulder injury and multiple surgeries. He skated in 24 contests this past season, recording four goals and 10 assists.
Tarasenko has notched 218 goals and 224 assists in 531 career NHL games. He hit the 30-goal mark in five straight seasons before hurting his shoulder, including back-to-back 40- and 39-goal campaigns.
