Top Kasperi Kapanen News

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Pens one-year contract

    Kapanen signed a one-year, $1 million contract with St. Louis on Monday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Kapanen collected six goals, 22 points, 99 shots on net and 64 hits in 73 regular-season outings for the Blues in 2023-24. He was utilized up and down the lineup but should see most of his playing time in a bottom-six role during the 2024-25 campaign.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Generates 22 points with Blues

    Kapanen posted six goals and 16 assists across 73 games during the 2023-24 campaign.

    The Blues claimed Kapanen off waivers during 2022-23. He immediately showed promise with eight goals and 14 points through the final 23 games last year, but his game never took off this season. The 27-year-old will be a free agent this summer, and it's unclear if he's in the plans moving forward for the rebuilding Blues.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Scores sixth this season

    Kapanen scored in the first period during Sunday's 4-1 win over the Kraken.

    The tally brings Kapanen to six goals and 22 points on the campaign. In a broader view, it remains disappointing that Kapanen never delivered on the promise he showed in flashes during his 20-goal, 40-point run in 2018-19. On the other hand, this is the fifth straight season in which he hasn't topped 11 goals, so fantasy managers weren't likely to be deeply invested in his production.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Three points in victory

    Kapanen tallied a goal and added two assists in Monday's 5-1 win over the Bruins.

    Kapanen opened the scoring midway through the first period, burying a loose puck in the slot, before adding a pair of assists in the second on goals from Kevin Hayes and Brandon Saad. It's an unexpected outburst from the 27-year-old Kapanen -- he hadn't scored since Dec. 30, recording just four assists in his last 20 games. He now has 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) through 57 games this season while primarily working in a bottom-six role.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Delivers assist in win

    Kapanen earned an assist in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Canadiens.

    Kapanen has two helpers between a pair of games following the NHL's All-Star break and a seven-game layoff due to a lower-body injury. The Blues obviously had everything working in the latest contest, and Kapanen likely needs to craft a lengthy point streak in order to be trusted in most fantasy leagues. Working in a middle-six role but often excluded from the power play, Kapanen has posted four goals, 11 assists and a minus-4 rating through 44 games.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Ready to play Saturday

    Kapanen (lower body) is prepared to rejoin the lineup versus Buffalo on Saturday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Kapanen will return following a seven-game absence due to his lower-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the winger had managed just one goal in his last 28 outings while putting 40 shots on net and generating five helpers. The Finn hasn't reached the 20-goal threshold since 2018-19 when he was with Toronto and it looks like he'll miss that mark again this season.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Could return after All-Star break

    Kapanen (lower body) may be available to return following the All-Star break, per Lou Korac of NHL.com.

    Kapanen made some progress skating on his own during the Blues' recently completed road trip. He has 13 points, 65 shots on goal and 26 hits over 42 games this season. Kapanen, who is still on injured reserve, has been out since Jan. 15 due to a lower-body issue.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Out at least four weeks

    Kapanen (lower body) will be re-evaluated in four weeks, the Blues announced Wednesday.

    Kapanen, who is on injured reserve, has four goals and 13 points in 42 games this season. Adam Gaudette was called up from AHL Springfield on Wednesday and might make his Blues debut during Kapanen's absence.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Surfaces on IR

    Kapanen (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per the NHL media site.

    Kapanen logged 15:47 of ice time in Monday's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia. He will miss at least the next two games after being placed on the IR list. Kapanen has four goals, 13 points and 65 shots on goal in 42 contests this campaign.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Records assist Saturday

    Kapanen registered an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins.

    Kapanen set up linemate Kevin Hayes' tally in the first period, tying the game at 1-1 just 1:05 after Brad Marchand opened the scoring for Boston. Playing on the third line hasn't done Kapanen many favors lately -- he has five points over 19 games since the start of January. His helper Saturday snapped a four-game drought. The winger is up to 13 points with 63 shots on net, 24 hits and a minus-6 rating through 41 appearances this season.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Cold stretch continues

    Kapanen dished out two hits and blocked a shot across 17:19 of ice time in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

    After posting a modest but respectable eight points through the first 18 games of the season, Kapanen has produced just two points over the last 14 contests while failing to fire a shot on net in six of those outings. Nonetheless ,the 27-year-old is getting plenty of opportunities with a spot in the top six and occasional power-play time. However, he needs to at least start getting some shots on net before he'll land on the fantasy radar.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Fills empty cage

    Kapanen scored an empty-net goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Lightning.

    Kapanen put the game to rest with his goal late in the third period, though the Blues would squeak another one in before the end. The 27-year-old had gone three games without a tally. He's been more of a supporting part of the Blues' light-scoring offense with seven points, 25 shots on net and a plus-2 rating over 14 contests, though the team has shown promise with 23 goals over its last five games.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Generates assist

    Kapanen recorded an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    Kapanen set up a Robert Thomas goal late in the second period. The helper was Kapanen's fourth point (one goal, three assists) in eight contests this season. The winger was promoted to the top line Wednesday in an effort to spur the Blues' weak offense, which has scored just 15 times so far. Kapanen will likely remain in a top-six role all season.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Scores shortie Thursday

    Kapanen scored a shorthanded goal on two shots in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Flames.

    Kapanen's first goal of the season came at 11:23 of the first period. Despite the scoring struggles, he's remained in a middle-six role to begin the season. The 27-year-old winger has three points, seven shots on net, six hits and a minus-1 rating through six outings.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Provides two primary helpers

    Kapanen posted two assists, two shots on net and three hits in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Penguins.

    Kapanen was pointless through three games, but he earned third-star honors Saturday against the team that drafted him 22nd overall in 2014. The 27-year-old winger assisted Jake Neighbours' goal in the second period and set up Brandon Saad's insurance tally in the third frame. He'll continue to play a middle-six role with the Blues and should provide modest fantasy returns.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Set to return

    Kapanen (upper body) is expected to play in Monday's preseason matchup versus Columbus, according to Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

    Kapanen didn't play last week because of an upper-body issue. As a member of the Blues last season, he supplied eight goals, 14 points, 47 shots on net and 23 hits in 23 outings after he was waived by the Penguins. Kapanen could see time on the second line and second power-play unit this campaign.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Misses Tuesday's game

    Kapanen (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's preseason game versus the Blue Jackets.

    Kapanen was initially scheduled to play Tuesday, but the injury was revealed just before puck drop. The 27-year-old winger can be considered day-to-day until further information becomes available. The Blues' next preseason contest is Thursday in Chicago.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Faces alcohol-related charge

    Kapanen was charged with driving while intoxicated in Finland last month, according to Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun.

    Kapanen was contrite when he issued a statement through the Blues. "Last month I made an unacceptable error in judgment and take full responsibility for my actions. I offer my apologies to my family, the Blues organization, my teammates and the fans. I understand the severity of my mistake and am committed to doing everything I can to earn back their trust." Kapanen was picked up on waivers in February by the Blues from the Penguins. He played well with the Blues, scoring eight times and adding six assists in only 23 contests. Kapanen's case is scheduled to go to trial in February in Finland.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Grabs helper in loss

    Kapanen notched an assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Wild.

    Kapanen has a goal and an assist over his last two games after going empty in his previous three contests. The 26-year-old winger continues to do well in a top-six role with the Blues. He has 14 points in 21 outings with the team, and 34 points, 113 shots on net, 99 hits and a minus-8 rating through 64 appearances when accounting for his time with the Penguins.

  • Blues' Kasperi Kapanen: Nets overtime winner Thursday

    Kapanen tallied the overtime winner in the Blues' 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Thursday.

    Kapanen is up to five game-winning goals this season, which surpasses his previous career high of three set in 2018-19 and then matched in 2020-21. He was held off the scoresheet over his first three April appearances, but the 26-year-old was great in 15 contests in March, providing seven goals and 12 points in that span. Through 63 outings in 2022-23, Kapanen's contributed 15 goals and 33 points.
