Perunovich eyes NHL Debut with Blues

St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues recalled defenseman and 2020 second-round pick Scott Perunovich Monday afternoon.

Following an impressive start to the AHL season (two goals, 18 assists, 20 points), Perunovich, 23, is set to make his NHL debut when the Blues host the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday, Nov. 16.

Perunovich won two NCAA championships during his time at Minnesota-Duluth. He began his pro career in 2020 but missed all of last season due to a left shoulder injury that required surgery.

St. Louis reassigned Joel Hofer, Dakota Joshua and Calle Rosen to the team’s AHL affiliate in Springfield as well.
