2020 Fantasy Outlook
Kyrou was often linked to Robert Thomas as the Blues' top prospects. While the latter has taken off as a rising NHL player, Kyrou hasn't enjoyed the same success. The 22-year-old struggled to stay in the lineup last year, playing just 28 games and recording nine points. Working in Kyrou's favor is elite speed and a dangerous shot, but he needs to get more comfortable with the NHL speed and physicality. The Toronto native fits better in a top-six role, a luxury that will be difficult to earn in the Blues' top-heavy forward corps. Kyrou needs to make the most of his opportunities this year.

Nets lone goal Monday
RWSt. Louis Blues
May 17, 2021
Kyrou scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche in Game 1.
ANALYSIS
Kyrou got around Nazem Kadri and scored at 16:31 of the second period for the Blues' lone goal. The 23-year-old Kyrou held a middle-six role during the regular season and amassed 14 goals and 21 helpers in 55 contests. He'll likely work on the third line during the playoffs, which could limit his effectiveness on offense against a tough Avalanche defense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Kyrou couldn't quite find his groove at the NHL level as a rookie, posting just three points in 16 games, but he took control in the minors with 16 goals and 27 assists in 47 contests. The 21-year-old has a unique combination of speed and a wicked release on his wrist shot -- some experts even touted him as a better prospect than Robert Thomas -- so the Blues want him to get more comfortable in the offensive zone before ascending him to the NHL ranks full time. That time could be coming soon, as the Blues likely won't re-sign Patrick Maroon, so Kyrou will have a chance to battle Zachary Sanford, Sammy Blais and Ivan Barbashev for consistent minutes in the bottom six and work his way up the lineup.
Kyrou is widely considered one of the top skaters out of this year's prospects, and he has the ability to single handedly generate opportunities. The OHL was child's play for him, as he tore up the league with 39 goals and 109 points -- the most points among right wingers -- in 56 games. The 20-year-old's monster stat line earned him the Red Tilson Trophy for most outstanding player in the league. Kyrou accomplished this despite missing games to play for Team Canada at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championships, where he notched 10 points in seven games. It's clear Kyrou is an NHL-caliber talent, but the Blues depth at wing could give them difficult choices to make: allow Kyrou to play top-six minutes with AHL San Antonio or plug him into the bottom-six with the big club? Either one should make fantasy owners wary of picking the rookie, but his unique abilities render him a top choice for keeper leagues.
