2018 Fantasy Outlook
Sundqvist's first season with the Blues was difficult, as he only played 42 games and averaged 10:29 of ice time. The 24-year-old center was able to generate one goal and four helpers in those outings, but his development would've favored a full-time role with AHL San Antonio. Instead, he logged only six games with the minor-league club, notching six points. With the Blues bringing in two more pivots this offseason and prospect Robert Thomas expected to make the team, Sundqvist will struggle for NHL minutes again. Read Past Outlooks
Skates with team

Upper Body
October 11, 2018
Sundqvist skated with the team Thursday for the first time since suffering multiple upper-body injuries in the preseason finale against the Capitals, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
ANALYSIS
Sundqvist is on long-term injured reserve, so he won't be eligible to return until November. Getting a good sweat in is a good sign for the 24-year-old's recovery after getting run over by the Capitals' Tom Wilson, who received a 20-game suspension for the hit. Once Sundqvist's healthy, there are a lot of moving parts to determine whether he'll stick with the big club, including the status of Robby Fabbri (groin) and Nikita Soshnikov (concussion).

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Sundqvist may be stepping into a favorable role in The Lou. With Patrik Berglund (shoulder) out until December, he was likely to compete with Robby Fabbri (knee) for the third-line center role, but Fabbri is out for the rest of the season. Therefore, Sundqvist will rotate in on the third line along with younger prospects to see if he can stick. There's a lot up in the air for the Blues, so keep an eye on them to see if Sundqvist will be called on for the long term.
