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.
