Blues' Pietrangelo Picks Up Assist In Game 6 Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo had an assist in Sunday's series-ending loss to the Wild. He took five shots and had two blocked shots.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo was solid throughout the series despite the Blues loss, registering an increasing amount of ice time as the games wore on, culminating in him seeing 31:12 seconds in the final game. The Blues may be in a shake up in the off-season after another early playoff exit, but it's tough to see Pietrangelo going anywhere. The 24-year-old is an all around rock for the Blues on the bullion.

Blues' Pietrangelo Strong In Game 1 Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo was named the first star of Thursday's Game 1 loss to the Wild despite not registering a point, as he was plus-2 and put six shots on net in 25:41 of ice time.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is coming off a solid 46-point regular season, and the Blues controlled the game when he was on the ice in this one -- they attempted 19 more shots than the Wild at even strength when he was out there. He's a key to the Blues' success in the playoffs this year, despite the loss, he's off to a good start.

Blues' Pietrangelo To Sit Out Saturday

News: Alex Pietrangelo (rest) will not play in Saturday's game against the Wild, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Both the Blues and Wild are resting a number of key players with their playoff spots secure, while also exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship due to the high probability of the two teams facing each other in the first round. Alex Pietrangelo will finish the regular season with seven goals and 46 points over 81 games.

Blues' Pietrangelo Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo had an assist Sunday in a 2-1 win over the Blackhawks. He was plus-1, took two PIM, and had two shots, two hits, and three blocked shots in the contest.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has had a quietly solid season with 45 points and a minus-1 rating in 79 games. It's not quite up to the standard he set last year, but it is his fourth consecutive full season (not counting the lockout in 2012-13) of more than 40 points and he is 12 shots on net from his career high in shots. Still not yet 25 years-old, Pietrangelo is a top fantasy defenseman.

Blues' Pietrangelo Sinks Stars With Game-Winner

News: Alex Pietrangelo notched the game-winning goal and had an assist Friday against Dallas.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo continues to steadily produce for the Blues, piling up 10 points in his last 13 games. While he's only got seven goals, he's hit the 40-point barrier for the fourth time in his career and remains one of the league's best offensive defenseman. With a whopping 188 shots on goal, the two-way force is an automatic roll every game.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist on the power play Sunday in a 2-1 loss to Detroit. He was minus-1 with three shots and a hit.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is hot right now with points in three straight and five points in his last five games. He crossed the 40-point threshold for the season over the weekend and is looking at a strong finish to the season for his fantasy owners.

3/22/2015

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist on the power play Saturday in a 6-3 loss to the Wild. He was minus-1 on the night in 24:46 of ice time.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo has eight points in 10 games since March 1 as he puts on a strong push to the end of the season. Pietrangelo reached the 40-point plateau again this year for the four straight full season (not counting the lockout shortened 2012-13 season). Get him your lineup everyday.

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Grabs Assist In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo picked up an assist on the Blues' lone goal Thursday in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Jets. He was plus-1 and added two PIM, three shots, and three blocked shots on the night.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo now sits at 39 points on the season and will almost certainly top the 40-point mark for the fourth consecutive full season (not counting the lockout). He is also plus-6 in his past seven games, bringing him up to plus-1 on the year for those who use plus/minus in their leagues. He is an everyday must-start.

Blues' Pietrangelo Contributes Two Assists

News: Alex Pietrangelo contributed a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo's steady string of production continues, as he's now got 37 assists on the season -- 47th most in the NHL. He logs heavy minutes for the Blues and is on track to hit the 40-point mark for the fourth time in his career. The 25-year-old is as reliable as they come.

Blues' Pietrangelo Helps Out In Win

News: Alex Pietrangelo dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- Tuesday in a 5-4 win over the Jets.
Analysis: He's been rolling steadily of late, with four points in his last four games, though Alex Pietrangelo's plus-minus (minus-3) has been curiously lagging for a Blues team that sports a plus-43 goal differential. This despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of his points have come at even strength. Nonetheless, even though Pietrangelo will fall short of his third 50-point season this year, he'll surely rack up 40-plus for the fourth time in his career, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Blues' Pietrangelo Has Tough Night In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo was minus-3 with four shots on net Thursday in a 3-1 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: It has been a disappointing year for Alex Pietrangelo owners who were expecting better than 33 points in 64 games and a minus-5 rating. He is logging the same kind of tough minutes as in past seasons, but with a career-low shooting percentage, so a few more goals could be coming. He still has a shot at cracking the 40-point barrier, so it could be worth trying to buy low on the 25-year-old as he has a very good chance to bounce back and be among the top-10 defensemen in real life and fantasy.

Alex Pietrangelo, D, STL

Alex Pietrangelo

Blues' Pietrangelo Scores In Loss

News: Alex Pietrangelo scored his sixth of the season Sunday in a 6-5 shootout loss to the Canucks. He took two PIM, two shots and added a blocked shot on the night.
Analysis: Alex Pietrangelo is plugging along playing heavy minutes and contributing here and there on offense for the Blues. There was some thought that he might take off with teammate Kevin Shattenkirk down due to injury, but it hasn't happened. Still, the 24-year-old should surpass 40 points and finish in the top-25 scorers among defensemen, which is a good season by most standards.

Alex Pietrangelo

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
