2020 Fantasy Outlook
Blais came out of the gate hot last season, ringing up five goals and three assists over the first 14 games. A November wrist injury stymied his momentum, and he posted just five points over the final 26 regular-season games. Those latter games are on par for Blais' capabilities. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound winger causes havoc on the ice -- he averaged nearly four hits per game last season -- but he won't fill the net at a consistent rate. Expect Blais to spend a bulk of his time in the bottom six this year after signing a two-year, $3 million contract extension last April. Read Past Outlooks

Not on trip

May 7, 2021
Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Blais (upper body) isn't traveling with the Blues for the team's current road trip, which means he'll miss St. Louis' next three games at a minimum.
ANALYSIS
Blais will have to wait for Wednesday's game versus Minnesota for his next potential opportunity to return to the lineup. The 24-year-old winger has picked up eight goals and 15 points through 35 games this campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Blais has been a strong minor-league player over the last two years, totaling 58 points in 68 games. His potential earned him 32 games with the Blues, where he filled into a bottom-six checking role, dishing out 93 hits while serving just six PIM. The 23-year-old also suited up for the final 15 games of the Stanley Cup run, notching three points and adding 70 more hits. Blais' grit has a place with the Blues, and he should have a solid chance of sticking with the big club after training camp.
St. Louis was high on Blais making the team out of camp in 2017-18, and he played 10 games with the big club before the calendar flip. However, after a Dec. 16 outing where he suffered a concussion, the 22-year-old was called up for just one more game. Blais finished with one goal and two apples in those 11 games, but his time with AHL San Antonio (17 goals and 40 points in 42 games) was much more productive. Blais has the looks of developing into a strong, middle-six forward, and a strong preseason should force the Blues to keep him in with the big club. He could snag a third line role if Robby Fabbri, who is returning from two torn ACLs, isn't ready to begin the season.
