St. Louis Blues Depth Chart

For handy reference, here’s the depth chart for the St. Louis Blues. The first Blues’ depth chart is via

Note please that it is based on salary, not ability. Also, positions are their roster positions, not where Coach Ken Hitchcock might place them.

This depth chart is the accepted one for now by Yahoo! Sports and CBS Sports:

Left Wing

  • Andy McDonald
  • Alex Steen
  • Vladimir Sobotka
  • Matt D’Agostini


  • David Backes
  • Patrik Berglund
  • Jason Arnott
  • Scott Nichol

Right Wing

  • Chris Stewart
  • T.J. Oshie
  • Jamie Langenbrunner
  • B.J. Crombeen

Defense 1

  • Alex Pietrangelo
  • Roman Polak
  • Carlo Colaiacovo

Defense 2

  • Barret Jackman
  • Kevin Shattenkirk
  • Kent Huskins


  • Jaroslav Halak
  • Brian Elliott

Note that it will be a goaltending battle for backup between Elliott and Ben Bishop, and the backup has not been confirmed yet. Also, assume that Nikita Nikitin will be the 7th defenseman. It wouldn’t be out of line to assume he’d play on the 3rd pairing, and Huskins would be the one to sit.
