Blues' Sammy Blais: Grabs apple in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais had an assist, two PIM and three hits in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks in Game 5.

Blais set up Ryan O'Reilly for a goal at 19:31 of the first period, giving the Blues the first lead of the game. The 24-year-old Blais has produced a goal and three helpers in seven postseason outings. He's added 22 hits, 12 PIM and a plus-1 rating.

Blues' Sammy Blais: On modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais produced an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks in Game 3.

Blais has a point in each of his last three games, although he did miss a contest due to injury during that. That three-game streak (one goal, two helpers) accounts for all of his offense in five postseason outings. He's added a plus-3 rating, six PIM and 17 hits.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Scores in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais scored a goal and dished out four hits in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks in Game 2.

Blais missed one game with an undisclosed injury, but he was able to make his mark in Friday's contest. The winger is up to two points and 15 hits through four postseason appearances. He will likely continue to operate in a third-line role.

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

Blais (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Friday's Game 2 versus Vancouver, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Blais missed Wednesday's Game 1 against the Canucks with an undisclosed injury, but he'll return to a bottom-six role for Friday's contest. The 24-year-old winger picked up an assist and registered 11 hits during the Blues' three round-robin contests.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Takes morning skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) was on the ice for Friday's game-day skate, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

It's unclear what this means for Blais' availability against the Canucks for Game 2 on Friday, so fantasy players should probably consider him a game-time call at best. If the winger does suit up, he'll no doubt be eager to break out of his 19-game goal drought dating back to Feb. 4 versus Carolina.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Not suiting up Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) did not take pregame warmups and will not play in Wednesday's Game 1 versus the Canucks, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Blais sustained an injury in the second period of Sunday's round-robin finale versus the Stars, and it will end up costing the winger some game time. Oskar Sundqvist moves up to the third line and Troy Brouwer enters the lineup Wednesday to cover for Blais' absence.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Could miss Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) did not skate at practice Monday and "could be missing for a bit," Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Head coach Craig Berube also mentioned that Blais would try to skate Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's Game 1 against Vancouver, but it doesn't sound promising. The 24-year-old tallied one assist and averaged 10:32 of ice time in three round-robin games.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais (undisclosed) will be evaluated for an injury he suffered in Sunday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Stars, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Blais sustained the injury in the second period on a play where he also received a minor penalty for boarding. He was able to get back on the ice during the third period, but the young winger isn't out of the woods yet regarding the injury. If Blais is unavailable for the start of Round 1, Mackenzie MacEachern will likely enter the lineup.

Blues' Sammy Blais: Agrees to two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blais agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Blues on Wednesday that will net him $1.5 million annually.

Blais was set to be a restricted free agent after the 2019-20 season, but the hiatus has allowed him and the Blues to work through contract talks before it reached that point. The third-year pro is having a breakout campaign of sorts, supplying 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in addition to bringing some thump to the lineup with 155 hits over 40 games. The new deal should keep him in St. Louis through at least the 2021-22 season.

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 NHL.com 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 NHL.com 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.
