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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
