Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to the Canadiens. He added two shots, a hit, and two blocked shots on the night.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo's production is off of last year's pace, but he is still trending to a 40-point season and ranks 27th among defensemen in scoring. Perhaps more disconcerting are his minus-2 rating and mere six power-play points on the season, which are both below his career norm. Still, Pietrangelo is actually putting a few more shots on net this year and should total nearly 200 shots by season's end. If his shooting percentage climbs up toward his career rate (5.3%) over the final 20 games, he could yet reach the 10-goal mark.

Blues' Pietrangelo Scores In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo scored his fifth goal of the season Friday in a 5-1 win over the Bruins. He had two PIM, two shots, four blocked shots, and a hit in the game.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is off last season's scoring pace a bit, but his 31 points is tied for 25th among defensemen and he still has a good shot to reach the 40-point plateau. He is logging heavy minutes in the absence of all-star teammate Kevin Shattenkirk, which will hopefully not lead to him wearing down as the season goes on.

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist Thursday in a 6-3 win over Tampa Bay. He was plus-2 and fired two shots on net.
Analysis: After going several games without a point, Alex Pietrangelo has assists in two of the last three games and has brought his point total up to 30 in 55 games

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist Sunday in a 4-2 loss to Chicago. He took one shot and added two hits with three blocks in the contest.
Analysis: This was Alex Pietrangelo's first point in four games and first since teammate Kevin Shattenkirk when down with an abdominal injury. Pietrangelo needs to step up in Shattenkrik's absence and perhaps his performance Sunday is a sign that he is ready to do so.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist Friday in a shootout win over Carolina. He was plus-1 and added one shot, two hits and a blocked shot in the game.
Analysis: Like many of his teammates, Alex Pietrangelo has fared well in January, as he has picked up seven points in 11 games since the calendar flipped. He has been overshadowed by teammate Kevin Shattenkirk this year, but Pietrangelo is having a solid season with 28 points, an even rating, and 125 shots on goal through 48 games.

Alex Pietrangelo

Plus/Minus Rating Improving For Blues' Pietrangelo

News: Alex Pietrangelo logged an assist, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: After strangely sitting with a double-digit negative rating in plus/minus for much of the season despite the Blues' winning ways, Alex Pietrangelo is beginning to notice a return to normalcy in that regard. He's produced six points while going plus-10 in his eight January games, bringing his season rating to a palatable minus-1 in the process.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo: Streak At Three Games

News: Alex Pietrangelo extended his point streak to three games and four assists with two helpers in Saturday's shootout win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He now has 25 points in 42 games, a pace that will come close to matching his career best in points (51). But he's strangely minus-5 on the season and that's the first time since he played just nine games in 2009-10 that he's been on the wrong side of that category. He seems to be starting to change things there, though -- he's plus-6 in his last five games.

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Blowout

News: Pietrbngelo picked up an assist Thursday in the Blues' 7-2 demolition of San Jose. He was plus-2, took one shot, and added one hit in the victory.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has been overshadowed by teammate Kevin Shattenkirk's phenomenal first half, but he has quietly snuck into the top 25 scorers among defensemen with 23 points - a pace which would leave him just five points shy of his career-high 51 from last year. He has also improved his shot rate by almost a full shot per game. An uncharacteristic minus-7 rating may mask how good he has been in fantasy this year and, if the Pietrbngelo owner in your league is doubting him, now is the time to pounce.

Blues' Pietrangelo Claims Assist In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: After putting together a seven-game point streak from Dec. 6 through Dec. 20, Alex Pietrangelo has since underwent a bit of a scoring drought, producing just two points over his past seven games. The 24-year-old has been the victim of some bad luck this season with a career-worst 3.5 shooting rate and an ugly minus-9 rating, despite playing for a team that's 11 games over .500. Pietrangelo figures to notice some improvement in both areas, and even if he doesn't, he's still been plenty useful for fantasy owners this season. He's tied for 21st place league-wide in defenseman scoring with 22 points in 40 games.

Alex Pietrangelo, D, STL Blues' Pietrangelo Runs Point Streak To Five Games

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Runs Point Streak To Five Games

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist on the power play Tuesday in a win over Los Angeles to run his point streak to five games. He was plus-1, had 2 PIM, and took one shot while dishing out two hits in the contest.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has five points in his current streak, which accounts for almost one third of his season total. He is an elite fantasy defenseman who fills the scoresheet across the board and should be in your lineup every night.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Scores In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo scored his third goal of the season Saturday in a win over Colorado. He took two shots and added two hits on the night.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo's offensive output is off his pace from last year when he had 51 points. Perhaps more surprisingly he is minus-9 after plus-20 a year ago, which tells you almost all you need to know about the variability of plus/minus. Pietrangelo has a four-game point streak and he should finish the season with totals close to his pre-season projections.

Alex Pietrangelo, D, STL Blues' Pietrangelo: Assists In Three Straight

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo: Assists In Three Straight

News: Alex Pietrangelo recorded an assist and finished with a minus-2 rating over his 22:15 of ice time in Thursday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: With an assist in each of his last three games and a total of 14 shot attempts during that span, Alex Pietrangelo's offense has begun to take off of late, but he still hasn't been able to shake his wretched plus/minus. After going plus-20 last season for the Blues, Pietrangelo sits at a puzzling minus-9 on the season, despite the team's impressive 19-8-2 record.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Heating Up

News: Alex Pietrangelo recorded his third multi-point night in his last four games, recording a goal and an assist during Friday's 4-3 OT win over Edmonton.
Analysis: After posting just seven games in his first 19 games, Alex Pietrangelo is finally starting to heat up, with six points in his last four contests. As we've seen lately, Pietrangelo can rack up a ton of points over very short stretches, which means he needs to be in your fantasy lineup each and every night.

Blues' Pietrangelo Records Two Points

News: Alex Pietrangelo added a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Jets.
Analysis: After six consecutive games without a point, Alex Pietrangelo has recorded four in the past days as he also had two helpers in Saturday's win. He now sits at 10 assists and should come close to last season's totals of 43 assists and 51 points.

Blues' Pietrangelo Dishes Out Pair Of Assists

News: Alex Pietrangelo dished out a pair of helpers in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Senators. He also skated to a plus-2 and fired four shots on goal.
Analysis: The points snapped a six-game pointless streak for Alex Pietrangelo, who is the classic example of a player being significantly more valuable on the ice than in fantasy. There's no doubt that the Olympic gold medalist is one of the best defensemen in hockey, but he's clearly been surpassed in fantasy value by fellow Blues rearguard Kevin Shattenkirk, who has seven more points, and is 11 ticks higher in the plus/minus department while spending nearly three minutes less per game on the ice. All that being said, Pietrangelo is still a productive fantasy blueliner who deserves to be owned in all leagues.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Bags Two Assists

News: Alex Pietrangelo racked up a pair of assists and was a plus-2 in Saturday's win over Chicago.
Analysis: A much need offensive outburst from Alex Pietrangelo, who had gone four straight games without recording a point. The 24-year-old, who netted 51 points last season, was too good to stay quiet for long. Once the Blues begin to score more goals, expect Pietrangelo to rack up more points. He is a complete workhorse on the blueline, logging 25:52 of ice time in Saturday's win.

Blues' Pietrangelo Scores First Of Season

News: Alex Pietrangelo scored his first goal of the season Saturday against Calgary. He took three shots, blocked two and added a hit.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is a fantasy star even though he fell short of double-digit goals last year. Some more early markers will alleviate any concern on that front.

Blues' Pietrangelo Has Good Value For This Season

News: Alex Pietrangelo finished the preseason with no goals and three assists in three games played.
Analysis: The 24-year-old defenseman is one of the league's top all-around blueliners and is coming off a season in which he delivered a career-high 51 points. This season, Alex Pietrangelo could notice an increase in offensive output with another year of maturation under his belt. Although he is not as much of a high-value pick as Erik Karlsson or Shea Weber, he still warrants ownership in just about any league.

Blues' Pietrangelo Expected Back For Game 1

News: Alex Pietrangelo (undisclosed) is expected to be ready to play when the Blues kick off their first-round series with the Blackhawks on Thursday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo missed the Blues' final regular-season contest of the season, but it was believed to be for maintenance purposes more than for injury reasons. The defenseman, who finished fifth on the team in scoring this season with 51 points, took part in an optional skate Tuesday and appears in little danger of missing any action against the Blackhawks.

Blues Pietrangelo Out Sunday

News: Alex Pietrangelo is out of the Blues' lineup on Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: No reason was given for Alex Pietrangelo's abesence from the lineup, so he's likely just receiving a day of rest on Sunday for the Blues playoff run.

Blues' Pietrangelo Pointless; Minus-2 In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo saw his modest four-game point streak come to an end in Wednesday's 4-0 shutout loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo was also minus-2 in this one, his worst rating in 19 games. The Blues average 3.16 goals per game and have been shut out just three times this season, so the probability of this turning into a scoring funk for the Blues' best defenseman is miniscule. Furthermore, Piets is virtually a lock to amass the five additional points needed to trump his career high of 51, and with a little puck-luck, could wind up as one of the top three highest-scoring defensemen in the NHL. If you haven't yet already, go ahead and hit cruise control.

Goals In Back-To-Back Games For Blues' Pietrangelo

News: Alex Pietrangelo scored a goal in Thursday's win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has produced goals in back-to-back games, finishing a combined plus-3 during that time. The 24-year-old isn't especially physical with only 17 hits on the season, but few blueliners are capable of making as much of an impact offensively.

Blues' Pietrangelo Playing Well

News: Alex Pietrangelo has six goals and 35 assists in 57 games at the Olympic break.
Analysis: The blueliner is turning in another solid year on one of the league's best teams. He's currently sitting at plus-14 for the season, and scored in each of his last four games before the break. Alex Pietrangelo is set to join teammate Jay Bouwmeester on a defensive pairing for Team Canada during the Winter Olympics.

Blues Pietrangelo Scores Goal In Loss Friday

News: Alex Pietrangelo scored his seventh goal of the season during the Blues' 2-1 loss to the Canucks on Friday.
Analysis: The defenseman has been white-hot since the new year, so seeing him take seven shots on goal shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The goal was his second in as many games and third in his last four. He now has eight points (three goals, five assists) in his last five games.

Blues' Pietrangelo On Multi-Point Streak

News: Alex Pietrangelo notched two points for the third consecutive game Tuesday in Edmonton, garnering a pair of assists.
Analysis: A cool December (just six points in 14 games) for the stud defender has turned into a white-hot January in which he's already matched last month's point total. Roll him with confidence that he's gotten over last month's, um, blues.
