Paajarvi signed a one-year (one-way) contract with the Blues on Wednesday.

A former top-10 draft pick in 2009, Paajarvi has largely failed to find his niche in St. Louis since arriving in St. Louis in a July 2013 trade with Edmonton. The 24-year-old saw action in only 10 games with the Blues in 2014-15, but did provide 11 goals and 29 points in 36 contests for AHL Chicago.

Paajarvi has cleared waivers, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

Paajarvi, who has appeared in just 10 games this season, will likely report to AHL Chicago. If injuries strike the NHL roster later in the season, Paajarvi could get another shot with the big club.

Paajarvi was waived by the Blues on Monday, reports.

Paajarvi had served as a healthy scratch for the Blues throughout most of the season, appearing in just 10 games. The team's ample depth at forward might have resulted in minimal opportunities for Paajarvi, but a squad with lesser talent on the wing could deem him worthy of a regular lineup spot. In the event he goes unclaimed on waivers, Paajarvi would likely report to AHL Chicago.

Paajarvi will draw into the lineup Sunday in place of injured Paul Stastny, according to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The former first round pick has fallen out of favour in St. Louis with the arrival of some new faces this year. He will have a chance to make a good impression in his debut, but will likely be limited to fourth line duty.

Paajarvi would likely slot onto the fourth line if he makes the club, according to Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Coach Ken Hitchcock said his performance at training camp "started well and then leveled off." The Blues are expected to trim their roster on Sunday.

The speculation about whether Paajarvi would even make the Blues is a bit surprising, but the former tenth overall pick in the 2009 draft has not developed into an impact player. His speed is an asset that could keep him on the roster, but the Blues have brought in a number of promising new forwards who have clearly leapt over Paajarvi in the pecking order.

Magnus Paajarvi was back in the lineup on Tuesday.

He skated with Patrik Berglund and Steve Ott during a 1-0 shootout win over Philadelphia. "We've had that line play twice together and it's been very effective," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Paajarvi is back feeling good about himself now, so we put him in and keep him going. We want to keep that line together for as much as we can here, finish the season and see how we look." In 49 games this season, Paajarvi has notched six goals and six assists. This could finally a chance for him to stick around in the Blues' lineup.

Magnus Paajarvi will be a healthy scratch Saturday night.

He will not play against Dallas as Chris Porter will dress in his place. No real fantasy ramifications here.

He is listed as questionable for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Flyers but we would not be at all shocked if he played in the matinee game.
