According to the AHL transaction page, St. Louis Blues forward Jordan Kyrou has been loaned to the San Antonio Rampage. That would indicate that Kyrou is close to returning from the offseason knee surgery that had him on season-opening injured reserve to begin the year.
Kyrou, 21, is one of the top prospects for the Blues after impressing in the AHL last season. Though he recorded just three points in his 16 games with St. Louis, he was often the best player on the ice in the minor leagues and had 43 points in 47 games to show for it.
There’s obviously no guarantee that he’ll be back with the Blues right away whenever he is deemed healthy, but Kyrou could give the team another option as they look to overcome their sluggish start. Sitting at 4-2-3 so far, the team has allowed 30 goals in nine games and doesn’t quite look like the stingy team that took home the Stanley Cup just a few months ago.
