Jets’ Setoguchi scratched against Blues


There was an interesting development prior to puck drop between the Winnipeg Jets and St. Louis Blues on Friday.

Jets forward Devin Setoguchi was scratched from the lineup. In seven games, he has just two goals and one point.

The Jets acquired Setoguchi, 26, from the Minnesota Wild back on July 5. He has one year remaining on his current contract, which comes with a $3 million cap hit.

It doesn’t come as a surprise, but the Blues are without Maxim Lapierre, who earlier in the day, was suspended five games for boarding Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle from behind on Tuesday.
