Projected Lineup: October 1 in Chicago

The St. Louis Blues kick off a series of back-to-back games with the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night at 7:30 PM CT at United Center (101 ESPN).

Brayden Schenn, Pavel Buchnevich, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jordan Binnington lead the list of players expected to play against the Blackhawks on Friday.

In addition, the Blues get their first look at 2021 first-round draft pick Zack Bolduc, who was selected as No. 17 overall. Bolduc suffered an injury and was unable to participate in the NHL Prospects Tournament in Traverse City, but is expected to make his NHL debut on a par with Kyle Clifford and Logan Brown.

β€œHe is an accomplished player,” said Blues Head Coach Craig Berube of Bolduc. “When I see him there in practice, he’s quick on his feet, on his toes. He’s got a good shot and good puck skills. Just use his ability and go play the game. We’re all looking forward to seeing him tonight see what he can do.”
