The Blues have re-signed Carl Gunnarsson to a two-year, $3.5M ($1.75M AAV) extension.
Gunnarsson had a difficult season with injuries in 2018-19, missing a total of 57 games with a combination of ailments. He finished the year with seven points (3G / 4A) in 25 games and added three points (1G / 2A) in 19 playoff games to help the Blues to a Stanley Cup—the first of his career.
Gunnarsson (lower-body) will not play in Game 2.
Gunnarsson skated prior to Game 2 but will not play in San Jose. Head coach Craig Berube said that Gunnarsson is “very close to being ready,” so look for Gunnarsson to play in Game 3 or 4 back in St. Louis.
Gunnarsson (upper-body) will not travel to Dallas.
Gunnarsson has been out since February 5th and will miss his ninth straight game on Thursday. However, the Blues are playing extremely well right now so there is no reason to rush the veteran defenseman back into the lineup at this time.

He will stay on the conditioning stint through the weekend and could make his season debut with the Blues next week.
Gunnarsson will miss the rest of the season with a torn left ACL.
Gunnarsson suffered an ACL tear in his left knee during the first period of the Blues' 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday. He will undergo surgery once the swelling in his knee subsides and will be re-evaluated in six months.

Gunnarsson will be back in the Blues lineup on Tuesday.
The Blues want to get Gunnarsson back in the lineup after he has sat as a healthy scratch for the last two games, so he will suit up as a seventh defnseman. No other Blues defenseman warranted coming out, so Magnus Paajarvi will sit out up front.
