Blues' Zach Sanford: Tallies game-winner Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford netted a goal and dished three hits in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

Sanford reached the 30-point mark with his tally, which also stood as his third game-winning goal this season. 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.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Busts out of scoring skid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford scored twice and added an assist with a career-high nine shots in Tuesday's 6-5 win over Chicago.

Sanford has picked up his points in bunches this season, counting a 4-point game, a 3-point game and 2-goal outing in February alone. But he also has been held scoreless in seven of his 12 games during the month and had gone his previous five without a point. It's been a career year overall for the 25-year-old, who has established personal highs in points (29), goals (15), assists (14), plus/minus (plus-15), PIM (26) and shooting percentage (18.8). He's still hard to trust in most fantasy formats give his streaky production, but you could do worse in deep leagues.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Erupts with four goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford netted four goals on six shots and went plus-3 in Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

The career-best effort for Sanford started just 25 seconds into the game. He added one more in the first period and one each in the second and third, the latter giving the Blues a 5-4 lead that wouldn't hold. The eruption put the 25-year-old at a career-high 12 goals and 25 points in only 44 contests. He's added 61 shots, 85 hits and a plus-13 rating this season. Currently seeing top-six minutes, Sanford will look to stay hot Saturday versus the Predators.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Scores twice to extend streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford scored a pair of goals and added two hits in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Sanford's two-goal effort gave him four tallies and five helpers during his six-game point streak. He also set a career high in points with 21, achieved in only 41 contests. The 25-year-old has added 53 shots on net, 76 hits and a plus-9 rating this season, earning a role in the top six while he's running hot.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Points in four straight outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford managed an assist, a team-high seven hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Sanford looked like a genuine power winger Friday. His helper came on a David Perron goal in the second period. The 25-year-old has two goals, four assists and 19 hits during his current four-game point streak. For the season, Sanford is at 18 points, 73 hits and a plus-7 rating in 39 contests. He's on the second line for now -- that could make him worth a look in deeper formats.

Blues' Zach Sanford: One of each Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford netted a goal on four shots, added an assist, dished five hits and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Flames.

Sanford was all over the ice in Tuesday's game. His biggest contribution was the game-tying tally just 51 seconds into the third period. The 25-year-old has picked up five points over his last three outings and now has six goals and 11 helpers through 38 contests overall. He's added a little rough stuff too, with 66 hits and 20 PIM.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Opens scoring in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford netted a goal on two shots and dished four hits in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.

Sanford has done well with five points in as many games since a move into the top six. He's up to five goals, 15 points, 61 hits and 44 shots on goal through 37 contests. The 25-year-old isn't likely to produce consistent offense, but his moderate physicality could make him a good depth option in DFS.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Two secondary assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford dished out two assists and three hits in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.

This is Sanford's second two-point outing over the last four games. The 25-year-old is lining up with Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron, putting him in line for assists by default, and both of his helpers were secondary in this contest. Whether he sticks in this role after the All-Star break remains to be seen and likely depends on whether Sammy Blais (wrist) returns to the lineup.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Rare multi-point night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford had a goal and an assist and was plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 victory versus the Rangers.

Skating on the Blues' top line with Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron, Sanford came through with his second multi-point game of the season and first since Nov. 21. It was also his first goal since Thanksgiving, ending an 11-game drought. Sanford has never topped eight goals in a season and doesn't offer much fantasy upside, even while taking a turn on the top line.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Minus-1 rating against Avs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford logged 12:04 of ice time and a minus-1 rating in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Sanford was a healthy scratch for the last six games, but Jordan Kyrou's defensive struggles enticed head coach Craig Berube to afford Sanford a return to the lineup. The 25-year-old Sanford worked on the fourth line, and he'll likely do so again Saturday versus the Golden Knights.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Cleared but will be scratched
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford has cleared concussion protocol but will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's matchup against the Blackhawks, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Alex Steen (ankle) has been activated from IR and will return to the lineup, but Sanford will watch another game from the press box. Sanford will aim to get back into the fold Monday against the Avalanche.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Unable to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Sanford was able to participate in Saturday's morning skate, so he shouldn't be out too much longer. The 25-year-old has accrued 10 points through 20 games this year, putting him on track to surpass last year's total of 20 through 60 contests.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Ruled out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford (upper body) will not be in action versus the Golden Knights on Thursday, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Sanford will miss his second consecutive game due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the winger was stuck in a five-game goal drought, and he will have to wait longer to get back onto the scoresheet. Once cleared to play, the winger should resume a bottom-six spot, though he's capable of pushing for a larger role.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Labeled day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford (upper body) is considered day-to-day, but will miss Tuesday's matchup with Buffalo.

Sanford wasn't in attendance for Tuesday's game-day skate, which raises doubts regarding his availability against Vegas on Thursday. The winger is currently stuck in a five-game goal drought during which he managed just one helper and nine shots, despite logging 1:11 of power-play ice time per game. Sanford's absence will see Jordan Kyrou get a look at a top-six role with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Status for Tuesday uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Craig Berube said Sunday that Sanford (upper body) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Buffalo, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Sanford suffered the injury in Saturday's game against Toronto, and was unable to return to action. He was unable to suit up for Sunday's practice, which is a negative sign for his status. With fellow forwards Alexander Steen (ankle) and Oskar Sundqvist (lower body) sidelined for Tuesday's game, the team is expected to call up a forward from AHL San Antonio. Expect the official word on Sanford's status prior to Tuesday's clash.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Leaves game versus Leafs with UBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford (upper body) left and will not return to Saturday's game against Toronto.

Before departing, Sanford logged 5:27 of ice time and was a minus-1. Expect the Blues to update Sanford's status following the conclusion of Saturday's contest.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Big night helps smother Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford scored a goal and tallied three assists, putting up four points in Thursday's 5-0 win over Calgary.

The four-point night doubled Sanford's season point total, giving him eight points in 18 games this season. Nights like these won't come often for the 25-year-old, but Sanford had that something special Thursday and will be looking to build off of it when the Blues battle the Predators on Saturday.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Ends six-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford collected an assist in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Ducks.

Sanford set up Vince Dunn's second-period goal, the only one the Blues were able to put behind John Gibson. Sanford has only four points, 28 hits and 15 shots on goal in 16 appearances in 2019-20. The 25-year-old is more of a physical presence than a scoring threat -- he topped out at 20 points in 60 contests last year but hasn't recaptured that pace so far.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Blocks two shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford recorded a hit, two blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against the Flames.

Sanford, who turned 25 years old Saturday, flanked Ryan O'Reilly on the second line in this contest as he has for a few games now. The big-bodied winger's physical presence is supposed to open up the ice for the top dogs, but Sanford doesn't have a point to show it over the past three games.

Blues' Zach Sanford: Set to be healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanford will watch Thursday's game against the Canucks from the press box, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

This is the third time Sanford will be a healthy scratch this season, and he averages just 8:09 TOI when he cracks the lineup. He's clearly struggling to hold onto a roster spot, and if he can't turn it around, the Blues' brass could have a tough decision to make when Jordan Kyrou (kneecap) is healthy, although Kyrou can be sent to the minors without waivers.
