News: Bickel signed a professional tryout contract with the Blues on Wednesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Bickel skated in nine games for the Wild last season, seeing time at both forward and on defense and finishing with one point and 46 PIM. Aside from his ruffian play, Bickel doesn't bring any skills to the table that really translate into fantasy utility, so he's not a name to monitor heading into training camp. In fact, it's likely he'll be released by the Blues when camp concludes and spend most of his 2015-16 campaign at AHL Chicago.
