Blues' Sammy Blais: Gathers another assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais notched an assist and three hits in Monday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Make it four points in three games for the heavy-hitting winger. Blais has 15 hits this season as well, but he's seeing second-line minutes alongside Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron to start the year. The four points already matches his output from 32 games last year.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Continues hot hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over Dallas.

Blais is off to a hot start this season. He has two goals and an assist in two games. This certainly won't last, but he may be a valuable waiver play for short-term gain.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Lights lamp in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais scored a goal and dished out six hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Capitals.

The home crowd was still on its feet from the pregame festivities when Blais found the back of the net just 53 seconds into regulation. The 23-year-old winger had chemistry with David Perron and Ryan O'Reilly, looking like the Blues' best line all night. This is a unit the Blues may choose to keep together for a while considering Blais' physical touch opens things up for O'Reilly.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Staying with Cup champs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais signed a one-year, $850,000 extension with the Blues on Monday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Blais isn't a big scorer with seven points in 43 career games, but he brings much-needed energy in a bottom-six role. Keeping the 2014 sixth-rounder on hand was an easy decision for the Stanley Cup champs given his affordability and chemistry with the rest of the locker room.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Qualified by Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais received a qualifying offer from the Blues on Tuesday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The physical winger didn't pop up on the scoresheet much -- four points in 32 games -- but made an impact with 93 hits last season. He also added three playoff points on the Blues' Stanley Cup run to snag a qualifying offer from the team. The deal could mean that Blais and the team are working on a long-term deal while the Blues can retain his services for the time being.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Snags helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais picked up an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Sharks in Game 6.

Blais has contributed three points and 48 hits in eight postseason contests. The physical winger isn't likely to get on the scoresheet much, but he is listed on the second line for the Blues.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Physical in playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais has a goal and an assist, as well as 24 hits in three playoff games.

Blais has averaged 14:26 per game in the playoffs, much higher than the 9:51 he typically saw in 32 regular-season games. The 22-year-old winger started the Western Conference finals on the second line alongside Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron, which could lead to a boost in his point production during the series if he is able to connect with those linemates.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Ready when called upon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (ankle) skated at full speed during Tuesday's practice but won't play in Game 4 versus the Jets, Lou Korac of reports.

Blais adds a physical component when he's in the lineup, as he averaged 2.9 hits per game during the regular season. He filled in for David Perron (maintenance) during Tuesday's skate, so it appears he may be the next man up if a Blues' forward gets injured.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's Game 3 contest against the Blues, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Blais hasn't cracked the lineup since March 12 and had just four points in 32 regular season games. His next chance to play will be in Game 4 on Tuesday.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Unavailable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (ankle) won't be in the lineup for Friday's Game 2 matchup with Winnipeg, Lou Korac of reports.

Blais has been skating with the team, albeit not included in line rushes. At this point, even if the winger is close to 100 percent, there is no guarantee he would slot back into the lineup - instead serving as a healthy scratch.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (ankle) didn't skate on a regular line during Wednesday's morning session, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Game 1 against Winnipeg, Lou Korac of reports.

This doesn't come as a surprise, as Blais likely wouldn't crack the lineup for Game 1 even if he wasn't currently nursing an ankle injury. The Blues will hope they won't need to count on Blais at all this postseason, as it would likely mean that they're dealing with an injury to one of their top-12 forwards.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Travels with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (ankle) made the trip to Chicago for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

This doesn't necessarily mean that Blais will play against the 'Hawks, but it's clear that he's making strides in his recovery. Blais, whom the Blues took in the sixth round (176th overall) of the 2014 draft, holds promise long-term from a fantasy perspective since he's gradually settled into an offensive role and remains a favorite call-up for the Blues.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (ankle) took part in the Blues' practice Monday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blais has been sidelined since March 12 with the ankle injury, missing 10 consecutive games as a result. His ability to skate with the rest of the Blues suggests Blais could be an option as soon as Wednesday in Chicago, though it may be more realistic for him to return for either of St. Louis' final two games, set for Thursday versus the Flyers and Saturday versus the Canucks. When healthy, Blais has primarily acted as a fourth-line forward for the Blues, producing two goals and two assists in 32 games.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Return still a ways off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (foot) is not close to rejoining the lineup, Lou Korac of reports.

Blais was believed to be nearing a return, but apparently, that is not the case. The team should provide more information on his status when he does make some progress, but the winger's status isn't of too much concern for fantasy purposes.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Not ready for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (foot) will remain out of the picture for Thursday's game against the Red Wings, Louie Korac of reports.

While Blais is said to be moving closer to a return, the up-and-coming winger will shift his focus to getting healthy for Saturday's game against the Lightning.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais is dealing with an apparent foot injury and won't be available against Edmonton on Tuesday, Lou Korac of reports.

While the team hasn't provided a specific timeline for Blais' recovery, the fact that he is still sporting a walking boot doesn't bode well for a short-term absence. Even once cleared to play, the return of Vladimir Tarasenko and David Perron to the lineup could see Blais bumped to a spot in the press box.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Won't travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais left Tuesday's matchup with Arizona due to an undisclosed injury and won't accompany the team on its three-game road trip, Lou Korac of reports.

Blais managed just one point in his previous eight outings, while averaging 10:00 of ice time. Given the Quebec native's lack of offensive contributions (four points in 32 games), he won't offer much in terms of fantasy value. Depending on the health of David Perron (concussion), it may be Robby Fabbri who slots into the lineup in Blais' absence.

Blues' Samuel Blais: More shuffling between league ranks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais was called up from AHL San Antonio on Saturday.

Blais has now been subjected to 10 internal transactions this season, but his previous call-up was deemed an emergency recall and didn't count against the four recalls that teams are afforded after the trade deadline. The Blues will suit up against the Stars on Saturday night, which gives Blais another chance to demonstrate his physical style of play in a bottom-six role.

Blues' Samuel Blais: Redirected to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais was returned to AHL San Antonio on Thursday.

Blais is an organizational tweener, which means he doesn't see enough opportunities at the top level to warrant a look in fantasy leagues. However, the Blues' sixth-round (176th overall) pick from 2014 is physical and capable of helping his actual clubs in a pinch.

February 26, 2019 11:36 AM
Blues' Samuel Blais: Deemed emergency recall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais was called up under emergency conditions Tuesday, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blais has now been involved in nine transactions where he's skipped between the NHL and AHL this season, with his latest ascension to hockey's biggest stage necessitated by Alexander Steen's illness. Blais has three points through 26 NHL games this season, which isn't nearly enough playing time or production to put him on the map in fantasy leagues.
