Dmitrij Jaskin returns to Wolves

SHARE Dmitrij Jaskin returns to Wolves

The up-and-down existence of Dmitrij Jaskin has continued.

The St. Louis Blues on Thursday assigned the 21-year-old forward to the Wolves. Jaskin was recalled from the Wolves on Oct. 24, playing in six of the Blues’ nine games since then. Jaskin has been a healthy scratch in the Blues’ last two games, and he’s played fewer than 10 minutes twice.

As for his production, Jaskin hasn’t scored a goal or registered a point since his Oct. 25 tally against the Blackhawks.

After last season, Jaskin was expected to have a spot with the Blues to begin the 2014-15 campaign. But despite St. Louis general manager Doug Armstrong’s statement that Jaskin had a job to lose in the NHL, he began this season in the AHL after the Blues’ busy summer of acquisitions.

In four games for the Wolves, Jaskin has a goal and three assists.

Despite playing without Jaskin for most of the season, the Wolves (9-2-2-0) have gotten off to a hot start. They’ve won six of seven overall and four straight on the road, the latest being a 3-0 win over a Utica team that entered the game with the American Hockey League’s best record.

Entering play Thursday, the Wolves are in second place in the Midwest Division, one point behind the IceHogs.
