  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Buries goal in loss

    Parayko scored a goal and blocked three shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.

    Parayko's goal at 13:49 of the second period gave the Blues a 3-1 lead, but they couldn't score again after Tristan Jarry replaced Casey DeSmith in the Penguins' net.

The defenseman has added 61 shots on net, 78 blocks, 34 hits and a minus-10 rating in a defensive-minded top-four role.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Provides assist in win

    Parayko notched an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Friday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

    Parayko set up Logan Brown for the opening tally at 3:35 of the second period. It's been a good December for Parayko, who has two goals and thee assists in his last eight games. The 28-year-old defenseman remains a capable contributor in most fantasy-relevant areas. He has 15 points, 60 shots on net, 64 blocked shots, 30 hits and a minus-5 rating across 30 contests. He's unlikely to see much power-play time with Torey Krug and Justin Faulk healthy, but Parayko holds his own on offense.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Quick response for equalizer

    Parayko scored a goal on five shots, doled out three hits and blocked three shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

    Parayko made sure the Blues weren't behind for long, answering Riley Damiani's opener for the Stars just 1:06 later. The 28-year-old Parayko has been fairly steady on offense lately with six points in his last nine games, though fellow defenseman Justin Faulk was out for much of that stretch. Parayko is up to 14 points, 59 shots, 61 blocked shots, 28 hits and a minus-6 rating through 29 contests while filling a top-four role.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Sets up goal in commanding win

    Parayko produced an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    His secondary apple in the third period put the Blues up 6-2. This year, Parayko is starting only 37.4 percent of his even-strength shifts in the offensive zone, the lowest mark of his seven-year stint with the Blues. Still, with one goal and eight assists through 21 games, the veteran defenseman seems to be doing just enough to stay relevant in deep fantasy leagues.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Pockets helper Sunday

    Parayko recorded an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Ducks.

    Parayko helped out on an early goal by Brandon Saad, but that was it for the Blues' offense. More regarded for his defensive work, Parayko has been solid in all zones this year. He has five points, 15 shots on net, 23 blocks and a plus-6 rating through 10 appearances. Parayko should continue to see top-four minutes, although his modest scoring output may limit his effectiveness to deeper fantasy formats.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Generates assist in win

    Parayko recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Avalanche.

    Parayko helped out on a David Perron goal in the second period. Over the last three years, Parayko's offense has slumped, including just 12 points in 32 outings during an injury-riddled 2020-21 campaign. Now fully healthy, the 28-year-old is unlikely to produce much more than 30 points, but he can still be a reliable source of his and blocked shots as a steady defenseman.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Signs eight-year max deal

    Parayko agreed to terms on an eight-year, $52 million contract with St. Louis on Wednesday.

Over his six years in St. Louis, Parayko has garnered 41 goals and 130 assists plus another 27 points in the postseason that includes lifting the Stanley Cup in 2019. The last time the blueliner eclipsed the 30-point mark was back in 2017-18, which likely sets his ceiling right in that range.

  • Blues' Colton Parayko: Set to play Monday

    Parayko (undisclosed) skated on the second paring in Monday's morning skate and is expected to play in Game 1 against Colorado, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Parayko was labeled "banged up" by his coach near the end of the regular season but has had a few days to heal up and will occupy his usual role in Monday's postseason opener. The Blues can ill afford to lose Parayko since they're already missing Vince Dunn (upper body) on the back end and David Perron (COVID-19 protocols) up front.
