Top Zach Sanford News

  • Senators' Zach Sanford: Buries empty-netter

    Sanford scored an empty-net goal on three shots and added three hits in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Oilers.

    Sanford's full-length shot found the empty cage with 58 seconds left in regulation, sealing the Senators' comeback win. The 27-year-old has a goal and an assist in his last four games, but he's struggled with consistency on offense in a bottom-six role. He's at eight points, 44 shots on net, 61 hits, 30 PIM and a minus-11 rating in 31 contests overall. Sanford had 16 points in 52 games with the Blues last year.

  • Senators' Zach Sanford: Clears protocols

    Sanford cleared COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    Sanford had been in protocols since Monday but didn't miss any games. The 27-year-old, with seven points in 29 games this season, should return to his usual fourth-line role when the Senators resume their schedule.

  • Senators' Zach Sanford: Designated for COVID-19 protocols

    Sanford entered the league's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Sanford becomes the ninth Senator to land in the league's protocols, so it seems unlikely the team will be in action versus the Kraken on Thursday, though no official announcement has come from the league yet. For his part, Sanford is mired in a 13-game goal drought during which he has registered a mere 14 shots and just one assist. Unless he can rediscover his offense soon, Sanford will likely be hard-pressed to reach the 30-point threshold as he did back in 2019-20 with the Blues.

  • Senators' Zach Sanford: Hat trick goes to waste

    Sanford netted a hat trick in Monday's 7-5 loss to the Avalanche.

    Sanford scored once in each period, opening with a power-play tally before adding the final pair at even strength. The 27-year-old entered Monday with just three points this season, so he doubled his output with the impressive showing. Sanford has five goals, one assist, 25 shots on net, 32 hits and a minus-3 rating in 16 appearances, though he's mainly been limited to third-line minutes.

  • Senators' Zach Sanford: Pots first goal with Ottawa

    Sanford scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

    He opened the scoring just 74 seconds into the game, but Ottawa couldn't make that early lead hold up. Sanford had only one assist through his first 11 games as a Senator, but he'd reached double-digit goals in each of his final two seasons with the Blues and more offense could be coming now that he's gotten rolling.

  • Senators' Zach Sanford: Traded to Ottawa

    Sanford was traded from the Blues to the Senators on Saturday for Logan Brown and a conditional pick in the 2022 draft.

    It's an all-around downgrade in situation for Sanford, as he'll likely play a less prominent role on an inferior team. St. Louis often moved the physical winger up the lineup to bring some balance alongside its top skill guys, but Sanford will be blocked from top-six minutes with the Senators by Brady Tkachuk (contract dispute) and Tim Stutzle at his natural left wing position.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Re-ups with club

    Sanford inked a one-year, $2 million contract with St. Louis on Wednesday.

    It's a one-year bridge deal for Sanford, who was a restricted free agent. The Massachusetts native failed to reprise his 2019-20 numbers when he racked up 16 goals and 14 assists in 58 contests, only managing 16 points in 52 games this past season. Still, with a full 82-game campaign Sanford should be capable of getting back over the 30-point threshold.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Tickles twine after long dry spell

    Sanford scored a goal on his only shot and dished out three hits in Thursday's 7-3 victory over the Wild.

    With the Wild leading 3-0 early in the second period, Sanford flashed a toe-drag and picked the top corner from the left faceoff circle for his 10th goal of the season. The snipe was the first of seven unanswered by the Blues in their regular-season finale. It was also Sanford's first tally since April 9, snapping a 13-game drought.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Gets back on scoresheet with assist

    Sanford managed an assist, four hits and three blocked shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Sanford set up David Perron for the Blues' second goal of the game. The assist snapped a nine-game point drought for Sanford, who has seen less than 12 minutes of ice time in three of his last six games. The 26-year-old has 15 points, 64 shots on net, 58 hits, 40 blocked shots and a minus-13 rating through 48 contests.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Opens scoring in blowout win

    Sanford scored a goal and went plus-2 in Friday's 9-1 win over the Wild.

    Sanford tallied just 1:32 into the game, which saw the Blues score early and often even though their third line played only a supporting role. The 26-year-old winger has nine goals, 14 points, 57 shots on net, 45 hits and a minus-8 rating through 38 contests this season.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Generates assist Monday

    Sanford produced an assist and two PIM in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Sanford set up Tyler Bozak at 17:01 of the first period for the Blues' lone goal. The 26-year-old Sanford snapped a nine-game point drought with the helper. He's at 13 points, 23 PIM, 55 shots on net and 43 hits through 36 contests. The Massachusetts native has mostly seen fourth-line usage since the return of Vladimir Tarasenko -- Sanford likely doesn't warrant a fantasy roster spot given his current role.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Rejoins team

    Sanford cleared COVID-19 protocol and rejoined the team at Monday's practice, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Sanford was added to the protocol list Saturday, so it appears he had a false positive test. The 26-year-old should be ready to go for Monday's game against the Golden Knights. He'll probably skate in the bottom six now that Jaden Schwartz is healthy.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Not traveling with team

    Sanford (COVID-19 protocols) stayed in San Jose and is self-isolating, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    It's unclear how long Sanford will be self-isolating, but this should rule him out for Monday's game in Vegas. He could join the team in Minnesota on Thursday or wait for the Blues' two-game homestand against the Ducks next weekend.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Added to protocol list

    Sanford was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list Saturday, Lou Korac of reports.

    Sanford will miss at least Saturday's game versus the Sharks. It's unknown if he's tested positive or if he's a close contact of someone who has the virus. Sanford will need to clear the protocol before he's able to return to action. Dakota Joshua or Nathan Walker could take his place in the lineup.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Two-point effort in loss

    Sanford scored a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    The 26-year-old had been held off the scoresheet in the prior three games, but Sanford shrugged off the mini-slump as he helped the Blues earn a point in the standings after they fell into an early 2-0 hole. On the season, he has a modest eight goals and 12 points through 26 games, but most of that production (five goals, three helpers) has come in the last seven contests, including all three of his power-play tallies.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Enjoying West Coast

    Sanford scored a power-play goal on three shots and picked up four hits in a 3-2 win over Anaheim on Wednesday.

    Sanford gave the Blues a 3-1 lead at 13:08 of the third period, fighting off a defender in front of the net to slam home a rebound. Sanford is off to a blistering start on St. Louis' swing through California, racking up four goals and two assists in the first three games. He began the road trip with a goal and an assist Saturday in San Jose, then followed up with two more goals and a helper Monday against the Ducks. Sanford had logged just four points in his first 19 contests prior to this stretch.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Pops off with three points

    Sanford scored twice on six shots, dished an assist and added three hits in Monday's 5-4 win over the Ducks.

    Sanford tipped in a power-play goal in the second period and added a shorthanded empty-netter in the third that ended up being the game-winner. He also had the secondary assist on Jordan Kyrou's tally in the last minute of the first period. The 26-year-old Sanford has five points in his last two games, bringing him to nine points in 21 outings overall. He seems to be thriving during the Blues' trip to the west coast, so he could be a solid choice in DFS for the next week, especially if he sticks on Ryan O'Reilly's line.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Productive showing Saturday

    Sanford scored a goal on three shots, provided an assist, added four PIM and went plus-2 in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Sharks.

    Sanford's tally late in the second period got Jordan Binnington off the hook for a loss after the Blues' starter was pulled from the game. Sanford's assist came on a shorthanded goal by Mackenzie MacEachern in the third period. The 26-year-old Sanford is up to six points, 33 shots on net, eight PIM and 22 hits through 20 games.

  • Blues' Zach Sanford: Finds back of net in loss

    Sanford picked up a goal on his only shot Saturday in a 5-4 loss to the Sharks.

    Sanford helped jump-start a St. Louis rally from a 4-1 deficit, deflecting a Torey Krug point shot midway through the second period for the first of three straight Blues goals. Offense has been tough to come by in 2020-21 for Sanford, who has produced just four goals and an assist through 18 games.
