Scott Perunovich seeks roster spot with St. LouisNovember 19, 2020 | 09:02 AM
Scott Perunovich will be looking to earn a roster spot with St. Louis out of training camp.
Analysis: The Blues have seven veteran defensemen, including Justin Faulk, Colton Parayko, Torey Krug, Marco Scandella, Carl Gunnarsson, Robert Bortuzzo and unsigned RFA Vince Dunn. Perunovich could be competing with fellow prospects Niko Mikkola and Jake Walman for a spot. There are only three blueliners (Faulk, Parayko and Bortuzzo) who are right-handed, but Perunovich played on the right side in all three seasons at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. He turned pro after he captured the Hobey Baker Award, which is presented to the top college player. The 22-year-old blueliner registered six goals and 40 points in 34 matches last season.
