Shattenkirk scored an assist Monday against Buffalo as he continues this hot streak. The Blues' top offensive defenseman has eight points in his past six games, including three on the power play. Despite being held pointless in his first three games upon returning from injury, Shattenkirk has quickly gotten back on track.
Shattenkirk registered two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Detroit. Shattenkirk is a puck-moving wizard in the world of fantasy hockey. The blueliner's superpower is the ability to see all areas of the ice at a given moment and set up scores with relative ease. Now, Shattenkirk has two goals and six assists this season, while continuing to put up numbers more commonly seen from forwards.
Shattenkirk ripped a one-timer past Linus Ullmark for a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres. Shattenkirk skated in from the blue line and sent a screamer that Ullmark had no chance of stopping. After missing most of October, Shattenkirk is finally starting to heat up with two goals and three assists over his current four-game points streak.
Shattenkirk cranked the puck past Sergei Bobrovsky in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Blue Jackets. It was his first goal of the season. Shattenkirk is now riding a three-game points streak, finding his offensive groove after a groin injury forced him out of 10 games between mid-October and early November. While his superior vision will lead to gaudy assist totals -- he had 36 helpers last year -- Shattenkirk hasn't had more than 10 goals in a season through five years in the NHL.
Shattenkirk (groin) has been activated from injured reserve and will return to the lineup Saturday against the Predators, Andrew Allsman of KMOV.com reports. Shattenkirk has missed the past 10 contests due to the groin injury, but he appears safe to activate once again in fantasy leagues ahead of Saturday's road contest. The productive blueliner needs just one more goal or assist to reach the impressive milestone of 200 career points through 341 games.
