Description: Blues forward Andy McDonald was a late scratch due to the flu.
Insight: McDonald has four goals and 15 points in 26 games this season but the Blues' depth at forward prevents any of their players from being reliable fantasy options.

Insight: McDonald went down in Tuesday's practice and is considered week-to-week. McDonald has been skating on the second line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Alex Steen, who are all currently injured. Look for Chris Stewart, Vladimir Sobotka and Patrik Berglund to form the No. 2 line for St. Louis going forward unless Steen's head injury proves to be minor, in which case he would replace Berglund.

Description: Andy McDonald scored a power-play goal and added an assist in the Blues' 3-2 win over Vancouver on Monday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: The Blues' power play, which is one of the worst in the league, went 2-for-5 in this game. McDonald has multiple points in two of his last three games, so he might be an easy-to-find source of points from your league's waiver wire.

Description: Blues GM Doug Armstrong said that both Andy McDonald and David Perron are still not symptom-free from concussions. St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Insight: Since both players are still not symptom-free, they still don't have timetables on when they will return to the lineup. Continue to keep both players on IR or on your waiver wire. Their injury situations would have factored into the recent Marek Svatos signing.

Insight: McDonald has spent much of the past two seasons at left wing, while Backes has played center, although their positional eligibilities in fantasy hockey don't necessarily reflect that. Both players should be available as wingers this season, although McDonald could benefit points-wise from a move back to his natural position.
