13th overall pick Lars Eller poses with Blues personnel
The Blues have recalled forward Lars Eller under emergency conditions from the Peoria Rivermen. Basically, if Andy McDonald cannot play in Thursday’s game, then Eller will.
Eller was the 13th overall pick in the 2007 draft and has 3 goals and 8 assists so far this season with the Rivermen.
This is a great move by the Blues. Yes, they could have gone for the more experienced player – i.e Stastny – but instead they’ve gone for the skilled youngster. It makes sense – skill to replace skill. You don’t replace Andy McDonald with a hard working grinder…
If McDonald can’t play, it’s going to be good to get our first glimpse of this highly touted prospect.
