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.

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

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

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.
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.

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.

Sanford gave the Blues their first lead with his tally at 13:22 of the first period. The 26-year-old entered Saturday on a five-game point drought. Sanford now has three points, 26 shots on net, 16 hits and 14 blocked shots in 14 outings this year. He's dropped into a third-line role recently, so fantasy managers shouldn't have high expectations for him.
Sanford (illness) will return to the lineup for Monday's game versus the Coyotes, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Sanford sat out Saturday due to flu-like symptoms, but he's been cleared to return. The 26-year-old will flank Oskar Sundqvist on the third line. Through 11 games, Sanford has just one goal despite firing 19 shots on net (5.3 percent), so he's due for some upward regression at some point.
Sanford (illness) won't play in Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Sanford has the flu, and it's not related to COVID-19. Tyler Bozak (upper body) is still on injured reserve, so Mackenzie MacEachern and Jacob De La Rose are slated to enter the lineup Saturday. Sanford's next chance to play is Monday against the Coyotes.
Sanford scored a goal in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.
Sanford entered Saturday on a six-game point drought since earning an assist in the Blues' season opener. He changed that quickly, scoring what would stand as the game-winning goal just 57 seconds into the first period.

He has just two points, 12 shots on goal and eight hits through eight appearances.
Sanford had an assist and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.
Sanford had the secondary helper on Jordan Kyrou's game-winning goal in the first period. The 26-year-old Sanford was productive in 2019-20 with 30 points in 58 games. He added 109 hits and 32 blocked shots, so don't expect multiple blocks per game from the winger. He should challenge for a similar 30-point output this season despite being limited to the third line, and he'll supply solid physicality to make up for when he doesn't score.
Sanford scored a power-play goal on three shots, added four hits and went minus-3 in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks in Game 5.
Sanford's second-period tally gave the Blues a 3-1 lead, but the Canucks rallied ahead by the end of the period. The 25-year-old forward has amassed four points, 17 PIM, 21 hits and 12 shots on goal through eight postseason outings in a middle-six role.

The 25-year-old winger has added 90 shots on net, 109 hits and a plus-13 rating in 58 contests. He's mostly used in a middle-six role -- with his physical edge, Sanford could have some fantasy value in deeper formats.
