Defensman prospect was tied for the AHL scoring league at time of callup.
Scott Perunovich’s time has come. The prized defenseman prospect has been recalled by the Blues, who in turn have sent goalie Joel Hofer, forward Dakota Joshua and defenseman Calle Rosen back to the Springfield Thunderbirds of the American Hockey League.
Perunovich, 23, was tearing it up in Springfield. He assisted on both goals in Saturday’s 2-1 overtime victory over Lehigh Valley, giving him 18 assists on the season. He also has scored two goals, giving him 20 points in just 12 games to share the scoring lead in the AHL. Perunovich, who missed one game, had at least one point in all 12 games he played for the Thunderbirds, who lead the Atlantic Division with a 9-2-2 record.
The departure of Hofer means that No. 2 goalie Ville Husso is ready to return after a stint on the COVID list.
Kinda surprised by Calle Rosen being sent out but I guess with Krug and Mikkola being able to return and the Blues really want to see what Perunovich can do , it does make sense......
Anything to get the Blues back to their winning ways earlier....
Let's Go Blues
