Just five assists in 20 games, his offensive production has certainly declined since being traded to the Blues. It’s possible that the Blues are grooming him strictly for a defensive role, as the numbers would certainly support that notion. It’s hard to imagine that he would be called up to Blues this season, unless there are a series of injuries, but he does have the experience of three years in AHL along with the large frame that the NHL covets on the blue-line. Still, at this point of his development, he doesn’t seem to be a fantasy consideration. –Matt Kowalski
