ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko knows the NHL bubble won’t be like a fancy resort, but that’s fine because he is focused on playing playoff hockey again after being activated from IR.
“It’s like a special workout. It’s something fun you have to do through quarantine. It’s not my everyday routine, but sometimes you can do this," Tarasenko says.

He said he will miss his family for the next couple months, but he has really good relationships on the team so he’s looking forward to hanging out again with his teammates.
Head coach Craig Berube likes what he sees so far from Tarasenko at camp.
“He looks like the Vladi of old to me,” Berube said. “He’s shooting the puck well. He’s been off for a long time, but he doesn’t look rusty to me.”
