Tyson Strachan Makes Blues Debut:

It may have been unexpected, but Tyson Strachan's National Hockey League debut with the St. Louis Blues last week was equally memorable. The former Vernon Vipers blueliner got the call to the show on Thursday and played against the Washington Capitals that night. Three nights later he recorded his first point, an assist on a Yan Stastny goal. Stachan is now a +1 in three games with the Blues.

This is on the St.Louis website:

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today the club has recalled defenseman Tyson Strachan under emergency conditions from the Blues’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen. Strachan, 24, skated in two preseason games for the Blues this season, registering one assist, two penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating. The 6-1, 212-pound defenseman has played in 28 games for the Rivermen this season, recording four points (two goals, two assists) and 65 penalty minutes. The Melfort, Saskatchewan native was originally drafted by Carolina in the fifth round, 137th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
