Tkachuk scratched from Blues’ season finale

Keith Tkachuk has played his final NHL game, and the Blues

forward did it in front of the home fans back in St. Louis.

The Blues scratched the 38-year-old Tkachuk from Saturday

night’s regular-season finale at Nashville. The team held a

postgame ceremony to honor his career after a 6-3 win over Anaheim

in St. Louis on Friday night.

Tkachuk, one of four NHL players with 1,000 points and 2,000

penalty minutes, had a couple of assists in that win after

announcing his retirement on Wednesday.
