RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Reaves' game took a bit of a step forward in 2014-15, as he set career highs in goals (six), points (12) and shots (55) while still bringing his physical game to the Blues, racking up 116 PIM and 276 hits (also a career high). It's the toughness that makes Reaves valuable in fantasy formats that reward his unique skills, but he's in his late 20s and is a fourth-liner again, so he isn't likely to grow his offensive game much more.

2014-15

The Blues relied on Reaves to dole out punishment once again last season as a member of the fourth line, with the winger tallying a career-high 211 hits and 126 penalty minutes. It was during one of his typical skirmishes that he suffered a broken hand, costing him about five weeks of action. Reaves would quickly return to his physical brand of hockey upon activation and earned a four-year contract extension along the way, keeping him in the fold for years to come as the protector of the Blues’ more offensively-skilled crop of forwards. If health permits, expect him to rank near the top of the league leaderboard in hits and penalty minutes, while providing next to nothing in just about every other category.

2012-13

When the Blues traded B.J. Crombeen in the offseason, the move appeared to clear a roster spot and role for Reaves on a nightly basis. Reaves brings a lot of size and forecheck to the Blues, and he'll be best used to create a disturbance and intimidate. He'll be a fourth-line winger and with a nightly role, a potential help for fantasy teams in leagues that reward penalties (124 PIMs in 60 games).
