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.

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Two Helpers

News: Alex Pietrangelo dished out a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo's been putting helpers on the board regularly, but the former No. 4 overall pick still hasn't scored a goal before or since his four-game scoring streak, which was way back in the end of October and start of November.

Productive Year Continues For Blues' Pietrangelo

News: Alex Pietrangelo notched a pair of assists in Thursday's win over Colorado.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo's been putting up great production for a defenseman all year long -- this is his fifth multi-point game already, and his 15 points have him among the leaders in scoring from the blue line. They don't come much better.

Blues' Pietrangelo Heating Up

News: Alex Pietrangelo delivered a goal and an assist for the second consecutive game in Tuesday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: He posted the same line in Saturday's win at Nashville for his first goal of the year, and apparently liked scoring so much he decided to do it again. After a down season in last year's strike-shortened campaign, Alex Pietrangelo's maintaining a point-per-game level right now and should be considered one of the better defensemen in fantasy.

Another Solid Night For Blues' Pietrangelo

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist Thursday as the Blues defeated Chicago, 3-2 in a shootout.
Analysis: The Blues' cornerstone defenseman has yet to score a goal but he is averaging a point per game, which should make owners happy. Alex Pietrangelo also led the team in minutes with over 30 and blocks with four.

Two More Assists For Blues' Pietrangelo

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up two helpers Wednesday against Chicago, giving him five in the first three games of the season.
Analysis: So far so good for the Blues' top defender, as he assisted on an even-strength goal and a power-play marker. He's averaging more than 24 minutes of ice time, a trend that seems likely to continue all season long.

Alex Pietrangelo

Petro Key In Blues Opening Night Victory

News: Alex Pietrangelo had two helpers Thursday as St. Louis downed the Predators on Opening Night.
Analysis: This is what the Blues were hoping for when they signed their cornerstone blueliner to a seven-year contract in September. With the new deal under his belt, Alex Pietrangelo should be free to produce Norris Trophy-type numbers this season.

Blues Sign Pietrangelo To Seven-Year Deal

News: Alex Pietrangelo agreed to a seven-year, $45.5 million contract with the Blues on Friday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has been involved in contract talks with the Blues for a good portion of the summer and will end his holdout of training camp. He is a productive scorer as a defenseman for the Blues and posted five goals and 19 assists in just 47 games in 2012-13 for the Blues. He is expected to line up with Jay Bouwmeester on defense and will be a member of the Blues for the foreseeable future.

Blues' Pietrangelo Holding Out

News: Alex Pietrangelo will begin Blues training camp on the sideline as a holdout, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The two sides have been negotiating all summer, but talks have broken down now with the start of training camp. Alex Pietrangelo is reportedly asking for a long-term deal worth $7 million annually, but the Blues aren't offering any more than $6 million. With the sides pretty far apart, there's no telling when a deal will get done.

Blues Expect To Sign Pietrangelo Eventually

News: Blues GM Doug Armstrong said that without a doubt Alex Pietrangelo will remain a St. Louis Blue, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: This is encouraging news for Blues fans, as Armstrong seems committed to signing the prized blueliner, but this doesn't guarantee that Alex Pietrangelo won't hold out like Ryan O'Reilly did last year with the Avalanche.

Blues, Pietrangelo Continue Contract Talks

News: Blues GM Doug Armstrong has been in contact with Alex Pietrangelo's representatives regarding a contract extension, according to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Analysis: The Blues just signed fellow blueliner Jay Bouwmeester to a contract extension, and their plan is to do the same for Alex Pietrangelo. It is getting late in the offseason, and the chance of a holdout has been rumored. It is probably safe to draft the standout defenseman, though, since the Blues have room under the salary cap to make this happen.

Blues' Pietrangelo Assists In Four Straight

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up his fourth assist in as many games Sunday in Colorado.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is picking up the scoring as the Blues close out the season. Unfortunately, he has not netted a goal in the last 21 games. Keep him in your lineup, as he continues to log more than 24 minutes per game.

Points In Three Straight For St. Louis' Pietrangelo

News: Alex Pietrangelo grabbed an assist in Friday's win over Dallas, giving him a helper in each of the last three contests.
Analysis: Despite not scoring a goal in 20 games, Alex Pietrangelo is getting involved in the team's attack with points in three straight games. He's hit a massive wall since his fast start, but he's still one of the league's best young players and should be an early-round pick next season.

Pietrangelo Mired In Slump For Blues

News: Alex Pietrangelo has not scored a goal since March 7, a span of 17 games.
Analysis: It's not just goals that seem to be eluding Alex Pietrangelo. He has a mere four assists in his last 17 games to boot. He continues to log close to 23 minutes per game during what has become a teamwide scoring slump. Keep Pietrangelo in your lineup and hope he and his teammates turn things around.

Pietrangelo Back On Blues' Scoresheet

News: Alex Pietrangelo assisted on one of St. Louis' three goals in Friday's win over Columbus, his first point in three games.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is in the midst of a breakout season, but his pace has certainly slowed since his fast start. Expecting him to continue getting the odd assist is reasonable, as he's demonstrated throughout the season his ability to produce offensively.

Blues' Pietrangelo Gets Assist In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo assisted on one of St. Louis' goals in a 4-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday. The point snapped a five-game scoreless drought.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) and is minus-6 in 32 games this season. It's been a disappointing season in St. Louis, which has been dealing with shoddy goaltending and an in-and-out offense, leaving several of their big guns on the negative side of the plus/minus category.

Blues' Pietrangelo Good To Go

News: Alex Pietrangelo, who missed Saturday's game with the flu, took five shots in a team-high 25 minutes of ice time Tuesday against the Canucks.
Analysis: The Blues certainly didn't ease Alex Pietrangelo back in after his one-game absence, so he's safe to deploy going forward.

Blues' Pietrangelo (Flu) Out Saturday

News: Alex Pietrangelo (flu) will not play Saturday against the Ducks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The Blues scratched Alex Pietrangelo late because the 23-year-old is battling the flu. This illness shouldn't keep him out for long.

Blues' Pietrangelo (Flu) Not Expected To Play Saturday

News: Alex Pietrangelo (flu) is not expected to play Saturday against the Ducks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The flu bug has reportedly hit Peitrangelo, and he appears set to sit against Anaheim. Consider him day-to-day heading into Tuesday's tilt in Vancouver.
