Pietrangelo collected two points -- a goal and an assist --- in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Pittsburgh. Pietrangelo's own offensive efforts made him one of two skaters wearing a blue sweater to record a positive rating (plus-1) in this contest -- fellow blueliner Jay Bouwmeester was the other. Pietrangelo is up to 11 points (two goals, nine assists) this season but he needs to continue to tighten up defensively as the owner of a minus-2 rating despite the team goal differential currently at plus-5.
Pietrangelo assisted on Magnus Paajarvi's goal in the third period of Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Devils. The top defenseman also finished plus-1 with four shots on goal over 22:46 ice time. Pietrangelo has a goal and three assists over his current three-game points streak.
Pietrangelo scored his first goal of the season in the Blues 4-0 win over the Predators on Saturday. Pietrangelo may no longer be the Norris Trophy candidate that many expected him to be when he first started with St. Louis but he's still an above average defenseman who can help your fantasy team.
Pietrangelo collected two assists in Wednesday's 6-5 OT win over the Blackhawks. Arguably the Blues' best all-around defenseman, Pietrangelo has taken a back seat to Kevin Shattenkirk in terms of fantasy value over the last couple of seasons. However, with seven points in 13 games -- including four in his last eight -- the Canadian Olympian is on pace for his usual 40-50 points, making him a great No. 2 fantasy d-man.
Alex Pietrangelo had an assist in Sunday's series-ending loss to the Wild. He took five shots and had two blocked shots.
