Blues' Justin Faulk: Snags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk posted an assist, four shots on goal, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

Faulk got the puck to Alex Pietrangelo, who buried a long empty-net goal in the third period. The assist was just Faulk's second point in six games -- inconsistency has plagued the veteran blueliner all year. His 16 points in 69 games represent a career-low production rate. He's added 147 shots, 82 hits and 76 blocks.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk (upper body) was minus-1 with three shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to Florida.

Faulk returned after missing the previous two games with his issue, and he logged 18:28 of ice time against the Panthers. Faulk has just one point -- a goal -- in his last 14 games and is on track for his least-productive season since his sophomore campaign of 2012-13. He has five goals and 15 points in 68 games on the year.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk (upper body) will play in Monday's game against the Panthers, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The 27-year-old missed the past two games with the upper-body issue, but he'll return on the team's third defensive pair. Faulk has been a decent contributor for the Blues, producing 15 points across 20:35 of ice time in 67 games this season.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Likely to go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Faulk (upper body) will be a game-time call for Monday's game against the Panthers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Faulk was expected to sit out the contest, however, coach Craig Berube said Faulk will take warmups and is expected to play. The 27-year-old would be a nice boost to the lineup after missing the past two games. Expect the official word on Faulk's status prior to Monday's 8:00 ET puck drop.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Slated to miss Monday's matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk (upper body) is set to be unavailable versus Florida on Monday, per Louie Korac of NHL.com.

Considering the club was entering a back-to-back, Faulk figured to be a long shot for Monday's contest after being on the shelf versus Chicago on Sunday. With the blueliner unavailable, Robert Bortuzzo figures to make his third straight appearance in the lineup.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk (upper body) will not suit up for Sunday's game in Chicago, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Faulk was a game-time decision for Sunday's contest but isn't fit to play yet. He's considered day-to-day, so his status for Monday's home game against the Panthers is questionable. Robert Bortuzzo will fill in on the blue line during his absence.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Game-time call Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk (upper body) will be a game-time decision Sunday in Chicago, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Even if Faulk can't go Sunday, he'll likely be able to play in the second leg of St. Louis' back-to-back set Monday against the Panthers. Expect definitive word on his status to come down closer to puck drop Sunday.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Reason for absence explained
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prior to a contrary report, Faulk missed Friday's game against the Devils with an upper-body injury, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Faulk was initially believed to be out due to an illness. His absence allowed Robert Bortuzzo to enter the lineup -- that arrangement will likely continue as long as the former is unavailable. The Blues' next game is Sunday in Chicago.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Out with illness Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk will miss Friday's game against the Devils due to illness, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Faulk apparently came down with a bug at some point prior to Friday's action, resulting in his removal from the lineup in favor of Carl Gunnarson. He'll have a couple of days to rest up ahead of Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Registers game-tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk scored a goal on three shots and was plus-3 with three blocks in a 6-5 win over Chicago on Tuesday.

Faulk knotted the game at 5-5 midway through the third period, helping the Blues rally for the win. It was Faulk's first goal since Jan. 15, putting an end to his personal 15-game drought. The first-year Blue has 15 points in 63 games after spending his first eight NHL seasons in Carolina.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Posts 10th assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk notched an assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Faulk set up Ivan Barbashev for the opening goal early in the first period. With the helper, Faulk is at 14 points, 115 shots on goal and 54 blocks through 54 contests. It's been a difficult first year with the Blues for the veteran defenseman, which has effectively dropped him off the fantasy radar.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Fires three shots on net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk recorded three shots and a plus-2 rating over 21:05 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Flames.

Faulk is still minus-4 on the season but he's trying to climb out of the hole. The 27-year-old blueliner is enjoying increased opportunities in January, as he's averaging 22:12 per game during the month but has produced just one point. Faulk's fantasy value remains low, and he's in danger of finishing below 30 points for the first time since the 2012-13 lockout season.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Snipes power-play goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk tallied a power-play goal on two shots and added two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers.

Faulk opened the scoring at 14:24 of the first period. The defenseman had gone eight games without a point before his goal. Still, he has just 13 points, 54 hits and 104 shots in 48 games this season. A consistent 30-point man with the Hurricanes, Faulk is tracking for noticeably lower production in 2019-20, his first year with the Blues.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Launches three shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk directed three shots on goal in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.

Faulk's on a six-game pointless streak, but he had chances to break through in this outing. It's been a slow offensive season for Faulk, as he's produced 12 points through 45 games just one year after a 35-point campaign.

December 28, 2019 12:20 PM
Blues' Justin Faulk: Records plus-3 rating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk posted a goal and plus-3 rating with four shots on goal, two PIM and two hits in a 5-4 overtime win over the Jets on Friday.

The veteran has worked hard to get his plus/minus back to zero the last week, posting a plus-6 rating in the last four games. Even after Friday's goal, Faulk's shooting percentage is a tad low, so he has the potential for more scoring during the second half. That's the good news, but the reality is Faulk has underperformed through the first half of the season. Faulk has three goals and 12 points, which is significantly behind the pace he set with 11 goals and 35 points in Carolina last season.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Fills box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk supplied an assist, four shots on goal and five hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

Faulk was all over the ice in this one, and he was rewarded with the helper on center Ryan O'Reilly's empty-net goal. The defenseman added two PIM, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating. Faulk now has 11 points, 84 shots and 18 PIM through 37 games in his first season with the Blues.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Ices frantic comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk scored the game-winning goal on five shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Faulk's tally at 17:34 of the third period gave the Blues their first lead of the night, fully erasing a previous 3-0 deficit. The defenseman has struggled to adjust to his new team, with just nine points, 67 shots on goal and a minus-5 rating in 34 contests this season. His 0.26 points per game are currently a career low, but he has two points in his last two outings. Perhaps he's on the verge of heating up, but fantasy owners will want to see more proof from the 27-year-old.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Finally pots first of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk scored a goal on three shots and had two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

Faulk joined St. Louis prior to the 2019-20 season after averaging 14 goals over the previous four seasons with Carolina, but he hasn't been able to replicate that productivity with the Blues. Saturday's goal was his first of the season and came in his 28th game. Faulk has also produced only six assists so far for St. Louis. The 27-year-old is too talented and too experienced to stay this quiet, so keep an eye on him to see if his first goal sparks more offense.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Light production in The Lou
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk fired three shots on net and dished out three hits in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Ducks.

Faulk posted five straight seasons with 30-plus points before being traded to St. Louis and signing a long-term extension. The Blues haven't seen the same production, as Faulk has yet to light the lamp and has just six helpers through 21 contests, putting him on pace for 23 points. According to Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic, coach Craig Berube attributes Faulk's slow start to playing with a new squad and in a new role. Faulk was a consistent top-four defenseman in Carolina, but now he rotates and even spends time on the bottom pairing, averaging 20:22 per contest. Whether the 27-year-old's able to contribute more offensively going forward remains to be seen, but his 52.1 Corsi For percentage is a reason for optimism.

Blues' Justin Faulk: Notches assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faulk managed an assist, four blocked shots and two hits in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

Faulk's contribution to the offense came on Robert Thomas' second-period goal. It's been a bit of a slow adjustment to the Blues for the 27-year-old, who is up to six helpers in 17 games. Faulk topped 30 points in each of the last six campaigns, but he also never skated less than an average of 22 minutes per game in any season with the Hurricanes. He's averaging only 20:39 in 2019-20, which could account for some of his struggles on offense.
