Pietrangelo scored a goal and added an assist during Thursday's win over Vancouver. It's been an excellent fantasy stretch for Pietrangelo, as he's recorded three goals, 11 points, 32 shots and 25 blocked shots through his past 13 games. His 26:41 of ice time with 2:44 on the power play during that span help his floor, while his ceiling is currently high, too. With Kevin Shattenkirk out of the picture, Pietrangelo is proving to be a high-end asset. His virtual outlook for 2017-18 is promising.
Pietrangelo posted a power-play goal with a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot in Saturday's 3-0 win against the Coyotes. Pietrangelo is just one point short of tying his best total for a month, and he still has six games remaining before flipping the calendar to April. His goal was the 10th of the season, his first time reaching double-digit goals since the 2011-12 campaign, when he lit the lamp a career-best 12 times.
Pietrangelo earned two assists -- one on the power play -- in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings. The Blues' top defenseman has bumped up his offense in the wake of the Kevin Shattenkirk trade. Pietrangelo has six assists, including three on the power play, in the seven games since Shattenkirk was dealt to the Capitals.
Pietrangelo has averaged 27 minutes of ice time, up from his season average of 25, in the three games since St. Louis traded Kevin Shattenkirk to Washington. The increase is largely due to Pietrangelo taking Shattenkirk's spot on the top power-play unit. Pietrangelo has two power-play assists in the three games since being elevated to the top unit.
Pietrangelo received stitches on his ear after Sunday's loss to Chicago, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. He was struck with a puck while sitting on the bench. The issue didn't force the veteran blueliner to miss any time during the contest, and there hasn't been any indication that he'll be forced to sit out any upcoming games, the first of which comes Tuesday at home against Edmonton. Despite the losing effort -- and puck to the head -- Pietrangelo managed to score his ninth goal of the year in 25:44 of ice time Sunday.
