2020 Fantasy Outlook
Sundqvist posted 12 goals and 11 assists over 57 games last year, marking the second straight season that he hit double digits in each category. The 26-year-old rarely escapes the bottom six, let alone the fourth line. But the Swedish center is a strong defender and one of the team's best penalty killers. Sundqvist is a lineup fixture this season, just not for fantasy purposes. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year deal worth $2.75 million annually with St. Louis in July of 2019.
Starts season with two goals

January 13, 2021
Sundqvist scored twice on four shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.
ANALYSIS
Mike Hoffman (immigration) was unable to suit up for Opening Night, allowing Sundqvist to slot in on the second line alongside Robert Thomas. That partnership worked well, as Thomas assisted on both of Sundqvist's goals. The 26-year-old Sundqvist added three hits and four blocked shots, both of which were best on the team. The Swedish forward probably won't repeat that kind of effort often, but kudos if you took a chance on him in DFS.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
The 25-year-old was a healthy scratch 40 times during the 2017-18 campaign and was effectively written off as an AHL player. However, Sundqvist made major strides during the summer and recorded 31 points in 74 games during the regular season while becoming one of the team's most effective penalty killers. Sundqvist's stellar two-way play earned him a four-year, $11 million contract, and the Blues will likely keep him toiling in a middle-six role for the upcoming season. The past season is a major source of confidence for Sundqvist, but 35 points is likely his ceiling, so he's better suited for daily fantasy play rather than season-long formats.
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.
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.
