2018 Fantasy Outlook
Sanford was projected as a top-nine talent in 2017-18 before he suffered a shoulder injury just 15 minutes into training camp. The 23-year-old may have missed his shot for that role after the Blues made a flurry of moves this offseason to bolster the forward depth. Nonetheless, the Blues are excited about Sanford, who has the size (6-4, 207 pounds) to be a pesky net-front presence, so he'll be in the running for a spot on the fourth line with an opportunity to move up if injuries occur.

Quiet since All-Star break
LWSt. Louis Blues
February 15, 2019
Sanford is pointless in seven games since the All-Star break.
ANALYSIS
He has 12 shots on net and 12 blocked shots in that span, but it's troubling that the 24-year-old hasn't been able to chip in offensively despite the Blues averaging four goals per game in that span. The Blues have two games left on their road trip -- Saturday versus the Avalanche and Sunday versus the Wild -- before David Perron (upper body) has a chance to return to the lineup. Sanford appears to be a bubble player who could be scratched when that happens.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2013
Sanford will be out until at least February with a shoulder injury, and even when he's healthy, he'll likely need to play in the minors for a while to get back in the hang of things. He had two goals and three assists in 13 games last season, proving his potential, but wait until he's able to return before consider snagging him.
Sanford is one of the better Washington prospects. Very raw but the foundation is in place for a solid pro career. He is several years away from the NHL but should be monitored in keeper leagues.
