Blais scored a goal and added two PIM in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Sharks. Blais scored at 3:34 of the second period, continuing a back-and-forth battle between the teams that began in the first. The goal was Blais' second of the year -- he's added two helpers, eight PIM and 32 hits through 11 contests. The physical winger has mostly worked in a third-line role, but his scoring output limits his fantasy value to deeper formats.
Blais (COVID-19 protocols) had five hits and one shot in a 3-0 loss to the Kings on Monday. Blais missed Saturday's game against San Jose after what turned out to be a false positive COVID-19 test. He was back in the lineup against Los Angeles on Monday and logged just under 14 minutes of ice time. The 24-year-old winger has one goal and two assists in nine games this season.
Blais had a false positive COVID-19 test, and he'll return to the lineup for Monday's game versus the Kings, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Blais is slated to play on the second line with Brayden Schenn and Mike Hoffman. The 24-year-old injects a physical presence to the lineup -- he dished out 155 hits over 40 games last year -- but he has modest offensive upside with three points through eight games this season.
Blais was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Saturday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. Blais is the first player on the Blues to be placed in the league's virus protocol this year. He'll sit out Saturday's game versus the Sharks, and it's uncertain when he'll be available next. The Blues are dealing with numerous injuries, so their new lineup likely won't be clear until game time.
Blais (undisclosed) posted five hits, two shots on goal and 14:21 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Sharks. Blais missed four games with the injury. It didn't hamper his usual playing style in his return, as the 24-year-old winger brought plenty of physicality. He has three points, 19 hits, six shots on net and six PIM through eight outings this season. Expect Blais to work in the bottom six when he's in the lineup.
