De La Rose penned a one-year, $700,000 contract with St. Louis on Thursday. De La Rose played in 34 games for the Blues this season after being acquired from Detroit in a swap for Robby Fabbri. With his new team, De La Rose managed five points, 88 hits and 31 shots while averaging 12:13 of ice time. He figures to continue filling a bottom-six role next year and likely won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.
De La Rose dished out six hits across 12:40 in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Stars. After nine straight games as a healthy scratch, De La Rose got back in the lineup because Jordan Kyrou (illness) was ruled out. The 24-year-old lined up on the third line and immediately injected physicality into the divisional matchup. However, when Kyrou returns, there may not be room for De La Rose anymore.
De La Rose dished out four hits across 8:51 in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Dallas. The Blues were coming off a tough loss to the Jets and placed De La Rose back in the lineup after three games as a healthy scratch. When he suits up, he rarely logs more than 10 minutes and contributes most as a physical player, recording 78 hits over 32 games.
De La Rose posted an assist and two hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Rangers. De La Rose was a healthy scratch in the previous two games, and he was pointless in five straight before that. The 24-year-old registered a secondary assist on Zach Sanford on the Blues' fourth goal. He continues to be a physical asset as well with two hits per contest.
De La Rose recorded an assist in Monday's 4-1 win over the Kings. De La Rose set up Vince Dunn's tally at 11:22 of the first period. The 24-year-old center has eight points in 35 games between the Blues and Red Wings this season. He's found consistent playing time on the Blues' fourth line, although he entered Monday averaging only 10:19 per game.
