Goc took a stick to the mouth Saturday and went to the locker room for treatment, the St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford reports.He saw just four minutes of ice time before the stick to the face caused his mouth to bleed, and he exited the ice. Goc should be considered day-to-day.

Goc picked up an assist Thursday in a win over the Canes. It was his first point since being traded to the Blues. He was plus-1 with three shots and a hit on the night.

Goc is centering the Blues fourth line and has played right around 13 minutes in his first two games with his new team. He has been a 20+ point scorer in the past, but has just seven point on the year and the move to the Blues will keep him primarily in a checking role.

Goc was traded to the Blues on Tuesday in exchange for Maxim Lapierre, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

It's a swap of depth centers, with Goc providing a dash more of offensive upside compared to Lapierre's more physical style. After compiling 25 points a season ago, Goc struggled to find his place on the Pens' checking line, contributing only two goals and four assists over 43 games. Don't expect his numbers to take off with the Blues, who are arguably even deeper at forward than the Penguins.
