Top Sammy Blais News

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Undergoes successful surgery

    The surgical procedure on Blais' knee was successful, Mollie Walker of Newsday reports.

    Blais was already ruled out for the remainder of the season, but it's great to hear his surgery went well. He finished his season with four assists, 17 shots, 17 PIM and 37 hits in 14 games and should be ready to go for training camp in September.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Done for the season

    Blais suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's loss to the Devils and will miss the remainder of the season, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The 25-year-old winger has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Although Blais will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign, he's expected to make a full recovery in approximately six months, so he should be ready for next season's training camp. The 2014 sixth-round pick will finish the year having picked up four helpers, 17 shots, 17 PIM and 37 hits through 14 contests.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Exits Sunday's game

    Blais left Sunday's game against the Devils and did not return. There was no update on his status after the game, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Blais needed help off the ice and, after the game, head coach Gerard Gallant said that it "did not look good." His leg went into the boards awkwardly after Blais got tangled up with P.K. Subban, and Blais appeared to injure his knee, though the specific location or severity of the injury hasn't been confirmed. The Rangers will continue evaluating him and another update should be available before Tuesday's contest against Montreal.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Nabs assist Friday

    Blais produced an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Blais earned the secondary helper on Filip Chytil's opening tally 1:53 into the first period. The 25-year-old Blais is up to four assists, 25 hits, 15 PIM, 13 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 10 contests. The Quebec native should continue to work in a middle-six role, and his role on the second power-play unit raises his scoring floor slightly.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Dishes two helpers

    Blais recorded a pair of assists, four shots on goal, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Predators.

    Blais took his promotion to the second line well, setting up linemates Filip Chytil and Alexis Lafreniere for goals in the contest. The 25-year-old Blais could stick in a top-six role for a bit with Kaapo Kakko (upper body) and Ryan Strome (COVID-19 protocols) out. Blais' assists were his first points in four games, and he's added nine hits, 10 PIM and eight shots on net.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Ready to rock

    Blais (undisclosed) will suit up against the Canadiens on Saturday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    The Rangers did not have Blais' services in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars, but the 25-year-old will be welcomed back for this road clash in a projected bottom-six capacity. While Blais did receive 1:46 of power-play action in the season opener against the Capitals, we figure he won't receive enough minutes to warrant a look in the fantasy realm, at least in shallow leagues.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Out Thursday

    Blais (undisclosed) will not play Thursday against Dallas and is considered day-to-day, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Blais racked up six PIM with three hits and two blocked shots in his Rangers debut against Washington on Wednesday. It's unclear what he's dealing with but the injury doesn't appear to be too serious. The 25-year-old will be questionable for Saturday's tilt in Montreal.

  • Rangers' Sammy Blais: Headed to Big Apple

    Blais and a 2022 second-round selection were traded to the Rangers from the Blues on Friday in exchange for Pavel Buchnevich, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    It was a strong season in St. Louis for Blais, as he set new career highs in goals (eight) and points (15) while logging 12:04 of ice time per game. The 25-year-old winger won't offer the same level of production as Buchnevich but is capable of challenging for the 30-point threshold if given a full 82-game campaign.

  • Blues' Sammy Blais: Lights lamp Wednesday

    Blais scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 2.

    Blais got the Blues on the board in the second period. The 24-year-old winger had 15 points and 103 hits in 36 regular-season contests. He's worked on the fourth line in the playoffs, as the Blues' forward group is now missing just David Perron (COVID-19 protocols).

  • Blues' Sammy Blais: Not on trip

    Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Blais (upper body) isn't traveling with the Blues for the team's current road trip, which means he'll miss the next three games at a minimum.

  • Blues' Sammy Blais: Nets goal in win

  • Blues' Sammy Blais: Tallies three points

    Blais scored a goal on three shots, dished two assists and went plus-3 in Friday's 9-1 win over the Wild.

    Blais scored in the first period and assisted on both of Ryan O'Reilly's even-strength goals over the final 40 minutes of the contest. With four points in his last two games, Blais is thriving in a top-six role. The 24-year-old winger has only seen a part-time role this season, but he's earned 11 points, 22 shots on net, 72 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 25 appearances.

  • Blues' Sammy Blais: Tallies in win Wednesday

    Blais scored a goal on two shots and added six hits in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    Blais entered the lineup for Mike Hoffman, who was a healthy scratch. The 24-year-old Blais took advantage of a top-six role, scoring on a feed from David Perron at 7:21 of the first period. Blais had gone without a point in his last five games. The Quebec native is up to eight points, 19 shots on net and 70 hits through 24 contests this season.

    Blais scored a goal on two shots and added four hits in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Blais gave the Blues a lifeline at 4:39 of the third period, but Max Pacioretty answered 2:46 later to restore a two-goal lead for Vegas. The 24-year-old Blais is up to three goals, seven points, 14 shots on net and 49 hits through 18 contests. The Quebec native provides physicality in the middle six, but it doesn't come with much of a scoring punch.
