Kyrou, Poganski are listed in Blues’ projected lineup in Buffalo
Kyrou, 21, will be making his 2019-20 season debut. For Poganski, 23, it will be his NHL debut.
Kyrou played 16 games with the Blues after making the club out of training camp a year ago and spent the rest of the season with the San Antonio Rampage. He suffered a kneecap injury requiring surgery late in the season and was limited to skating alone in 2019 Blues training camp while rehabbing. He was assigned to San Antonio and has been a prolific scorer, collecting 15 points (nine goals, six assists) in 16 games.
A 2016 second-round draft pick, Kyrou has 58 points (25 goals, 33 assists) in 64 career AHL regular-season games.
Poganski was a healthy scratch for five games with the Blues during his previous call-up, which ended Sunday so that he could play a game with San Antonio and shake off rust. He and Kyrou were recalled Monday.
Poganski, a fourth-round draft pick in 2014, has 13 points (two goals, 11 assists) in 22 games with the Rampage this season.
The projected lineup:
David Perron – Ryan O’Reilly – Tyler Bozak
Jaden Schwartz – Brayden Schenn – Jordan Kyrou
Ivan Barbashev – Robert Thomas – Troy Brouwer
Mackenzie MacEachern – Jacob de la Rose – Austin Poganski
Colton Parayko – Alex Pietrangelo
Jay Bouwmeester – Justin Faulk
Vince Dunn – Robert Bortuzzo
