Moscow, April 6 – The St. Louis Blues have recalled Russian defenseman Dmitry Samorokov from the AHL’s Springfield Thunderbirds, according to the National Hockey League’s (NHL) official website.
Samorokov was called up to Saint Louis after defenders Robert Portuzzo and Marco Scandella were injured.
The defender moved to the St. Louis system in October in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers. Russia’s Clem Kostin walked in the opposite direction. Prior to the exchange, hockey players were placed on the NHL’s waiver draft, but no one took them.

This season, the 23-year-old Russian has 66 games and 20 points (4 goals and 16 assists) with Springfield.
