Gunnarsson (concussion) skated with the team Tuesday morning, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gunnarsson is set to miss his fourth straight game with the concussion, but his participation with the team signals he might not be far off a return. Coach Ken Hitchcock indicated that Gunnarsson has been cleared for full contact, but still needs to get in some conditioning work before he'll be activated from IR.

Gunnarsson (concussion) was on the ice for a workout Friday, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Gunnarsson was able to skate, handle the puck and take part in endurance drills in what was believed to be his first on-ice work since being diagnosed with a concussion. He's still awaiting clearance for contact, but his activity Friday would seem to represent an encouraging development.

Gunnarsson (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Coach Ken Hitchcock had noted over the last couple of days that Gunnarsson was making no notable progress with his recovery from the concussion, which made it likely that the Blues would be without the defenseman's services for multiple games. With that in mind, Gunnarsson was transferred to IR to open up a 23-man roster spot, which will be filled by the now-healthy Jay Bouwmeester (groin). There's no timetable yet for Gunnarsson's return.

Gunnarsson (face) will not play Monday against the Panthers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Gunnarsson is still feeling the effects of being elbowed by the Islanders' Anders Lee over the weekend, and looks like he's in danger of missing even more time. The blueliner recorded a goal and four assists in 20 games before the injury.

Gunnarsson (upper body) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Panthers, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gunnarsson took an elbow to the face Saturday from the Islanders' Anders Lee and was forced to exit the contest. It's not clear if Lee will receive a suspension on what appeared to be a dirty hit, nor if Gunnarsson is dealing with a concussion as a result of the hit. The Blues should have a better idea of his health as the week progresses.

Gunnarsson (upper body) will not return to Saturday's contest, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gunnarsson failed to record a point in just under nine minutes of action prior to exiting. Look for Chris Butler to be one candidate to replace Gunnarsson's position on the second defensive pairing, with Petteri Lindbohm or Ian Cole also poised to see additional work.

Gunnarsson scored his first goal as a member of the Blues, adding an assist and a plus-3 rating, in Thursday's win over the Predators.
A heck of a game for Gunnarsson, who had gone six straight games without a point. He's not known for his offense, never having kicked in more than 20 points in a season, so this is unlikely to be the start of a big bust-out.

Gunnarsson had an assist Thursday in a win over the Ducks. He was plus-1 and took one shot in just 10:43 of ice time.
This was Gunnarsson's second game of the season and first point since joining the Blues in an off-season trade from Toronto. His ice time should ramp up going forward as his legs get stronger.
