Blues' Sammy Blais: Supplies helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

Blais had the secondary helper on Zach Sanford's second-period tally, which stood as the game-winner. In his last three games, Blais has recorded two assists. The 23-year-old winger has 13 points, 155 hits and 56 shots in 40 contests this season. Outside of strong physical play, Blais doesn't add much for fantasy owners.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais will play in Saturday's game versus the Stars, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blais was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game versus the Islanders, and head coach Craig Berube said he wanted the 23-year-old winger to elevate his game. He'll be back in the fold against the divisional opponent, and with a fourth-line deployment on tap, he'll likely continue to be a physical presence. He already has a team-high 131 hits through just 34 games.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's game against the Islanders, Lou Korac of reports.

Blais is believed to be dealing with a lingering injury. With the 23-year-old's absence from the lineup, head coach Craig Berube will roll with 11 forwards and seven defensemen -- Robert Bortuzzo will enter the lineup in Blais' place.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Leads team in hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais posted three hits and two shots on net across 8:46 in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blackhawks.

Blais showcased his offensive upside over the first two months before undergoing wrist surgery in November, and he's been eased into action since returning to the lineup. Zach Sanford's emergence and Vladimir Tarsenko's (shoulder) eventual return will likely keep Blais in the bottom six going forward, but the 23-year-old is comfortable in that role as well. Blais has racked up a team-high 131 hits over just 34 games.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Garners helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais posted an assist and four hits in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

Blais set up Ivan Barbashev in the third period for the latter's second tally of the contest. The 23-year-old Blais has managed 11 points and 116 hits through 30 contests this year. While the physicality is a plus, the Canadian winger has just three points in the last 10 games, which will likely keep him off the fantasy radar.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Dishes out two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais posted a shot on net, two hits and a minus-1 rating in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Predators.

Blais was much more productive in the first game of the home-and-home series, as he recorded an assist and five hits Saturday. The 23-year-old was quite productive prior to suffering a wrist injury, but he's struggled lately with just two points over nine games. However, he continues to be a physical force with 43 hits in that stretch.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Gets first goal since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais netted a goal on two shots, dished four hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Blais' goal was his first point in four games since returning from a wrist injury. He had gone nine straight outings without a point. The physical winger is up to nine points, 86 hits, 33 shots and 12 PIM through 24 contests.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Physical presence in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (wrist) doled out four hits in 11:01 during Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Flames.

A 28-game absence derailed a potentially promising year for Blais, but he brought the physicality in his return. The 23-year-old is up to 74 hits to go with eight points in 21 contest. With Alexander Steen leaving Tuesday's game early due to a lower-body injury, Blais may quickly move up to the third line after returning in a fourth-line role.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (wrist) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

The Blues had an open roster spot ready for Blais' return, but this move likely means he's in the lineup Tuesday versus the Flames. The 23-year-old hasn't played since Nov. 19 after undergoing wrist surgery, but he's already generated career highs in goals (five) and points (eight) through 20 games. Blais will likely start out in the bottom six, although he often played on the second line alongside Ryan O'Reilly prior to injury.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Could be back soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (wrist) could return shortly after the All-Star break, Lou Korac of reports.

Coach Craig Berube suggested Blais and Colton Parayko (upper body) are both close to returning to the lineup. Blais underwent wrist surgery in November and was expected to be out until late January at a minimum. The winger will need to be activated from injured reserve -- it's unclear if he'd immediately rejoin the Blues or if he'll need a conditioning stint with AHL San Antonio first.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Returns to ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (wrist) skated at the end of Saturday's practice, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blais was able to grip a stick during this session, but there's no indication that he'll return ahead of his initial 10-week timeline, which had him returning in late January. However, it's a positive sign that he could be nearing a return. Blais already achieved career highs in goals (five) and points (eight) through 20 games this season, and he's a welcomed physical presence with 70 hits in that stretch.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Out for 10 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (wrist) will have surgery on his right wrist, and he'll be re-evaluated in 10 weeks.

Blais is the third Blues forward to get pegged with an extended absence, and he'll join Vladimir Tarasenko (shoulder) Alexander Steen (ankle) on IR soon. The 23-year-old was off to the best start of his career with five goals and eight points through 20 games. Blais will be out until late January at a minimum. The Blues signed Troy Brouwer to a one-year deal almost immediately to help fill the void.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Misses Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice and, in coach Craig Berube's words, is considered day-to-day, Lou Korac of reports.

Blais took a hart hit during Tuesday's win over the Flames and was clearly shaken up, but the 23-year-old finished the game and didn't show any ill effects. The winger may be feeling it now, however, as he was the only player missing from practice. The Blues tested out Ivan Barbashev in his place on the second line and may stick with the unit if Blais can't play Thursday against the Blue Jackets.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Dished out four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais recorded a minus-1 rating and four hits during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Ducks.

Blais was bumped up to the top six, flanking Brayden Schenn at even strength, and he continues to log consistent power-play minutes as a net-front presence. The 23-year-old forward has carved out a role on the Blues, and he refuses to lose it, as he currently leads the team with 47 hits over 19 games. Blais is also tied with Ryan O'Reilly for fourth with five goals.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Highlight-reel assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais delivered an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Canucks.

Blais made a beautiful feed to Tyler Bozak for the opening goal at 3:37 of the second period. The hefty winger is up to eight points in 14 games, to go with 49 hits, 21 shots and a plus-7 rating. The 23-year-old has found a home on the third line for the Blues and his production might be enough to interest fantasy owners in deeper formats.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Tallies game-tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais scored a goal on four shots and delivered three hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win versus the Wild.

The 23-year-old banged home his own rebound to tie the game at 3-3 just over six minutes into the third period. Blais was moved up to the top line with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn three games ago following an injury to Vladimir Tarasenko and has now scored in two of those games. He's an interesting player in his current role. Blais scored three goals in 43 games over his first two NHL seasons, but now has five goals in 12 games in 2019-20.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Answers promotion with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) scored a goal on his lone shot and had four PIM in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Wild.

Blais had been banged up in recent days but was deemed fit for a promotion to the Blues' top line Wednesday, and he responded with his fourth goal of the season. The 23-year-old unloaded a heavy wrist shot from the right faceoff dot seven minutes into the second period and finished the night with just over 15 minutes of ice time. The opportunity is there for Blais to grab hold of a prime role and he should be on your radar as long as he's skating with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Slated for top-line role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) will suit up for Wednesday's matchup against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Blais missed two of the last three games to injury, but he'll re-enter the lineup for this divisional matchup. He's set to play on the top line with Brayden Schenn and Jaden Schwartz since Vladimir Tarasenko (shoulder) is out. The unit needs a long-term replacement, so if Blais performs well, he could force the Blues' brass to keep him on the line for additional games. He has certainly proved capable of playing with the top dogs, as he marked five points through the first five games while he flanked Ryan O'Reilly.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Scratched from Sunday's matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear if anything's actually bothering Blais or if he's simply a healthy scratch, but there's a chance he aggravated his thumb injury during Saturday's loss to the Bruins. He has an excellent offensive touch with three goals and two assists through the first five games of the year, but he's been pointless over the last five, bottoming out with a minus-2 rating during Saturday's contest. The Blues will likely update his condition following Sunday's game.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (thumb) skated on the fourth line at practice and will play against Boston on Saturday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Blais' participation in the morning skate is a good indication that the fourth-line winger will be back in action following a one-game absence. The 23-year-old has collected five points in nine games this season, more points than Blais had in 32 games in 2018-19.
