Pietrangelo dished out four hits and added a helper in Saturday's season finale against the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

In his eighth full season in the Blues, Pietrangelo notched career highs in goals (15), points (54), shots on goal (216) and blocked shots (164) through 78 games. However, as the captain, Pietrangelo missed his ultimate goal of leading his squad to the playoffs. Still, the 28-year-old's stat line proves he's an underrated defenseman in the fantasy realm.

Pietrangelo scored a goal on eight shots and tallied three helpers in a 5-4 overtime win against the Blackhawks on Sunday. Two of those assists came with the extra man for good measure.

EDGE Analysis

This was quite the weekend for Pietrangelo, who managed to notch a whopping seven points over two games. In fact, the 28-year-old has 11 points over his last four contests. After this hot streak he has 50 points in 68 games, and he's one point away from tying his career high.

Pietrangelo scored twice -- including once on the power play -- and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Pietrangelo continues to play a massive role on the Blues blueline, logging 25:12 of ice time Saturday. The 28-year-old has compiled seven points in his last three games and is up to 14 goals and 46 points in 67 games. The Blues are only three points back of the second Wild Card position in the Western Conference and will be counting on their top blueliner to keep producing offense.

Pietrangelo had another strong showing in Monday's win, posting two assists in a 4-2 win over Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

For the most part, you know what you're getting with Pietrangelo each year: a solid defenseman who can set up his teammates well and is good for about 45 points a season. He's close to that number and could break 50 for just the third time in his career, and if you're in need of assists, he's someone who should be in your lineup.

Pietrangelo scored a goal and an assist while adding eight shots, a blocked shot, a hit and a plus-5 rating in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

He'd produced only four points (three goals, one assist) in 15 games since the beginning of February heading into this one, so Saturday's dominant fantasy performance was a welcome sight for the Blues and for anyone with shares in Pietrangelo. The 28-year-old now has 12 goals and 41 points on the season, the sixth time in his career he's broken the 40-point plateau, but he'll need to stay hot down the stretch to have a shot at matching his career-high 51.

Pietrangelo notched the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over the Red Wings on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

That's back-to-back games with a goal for Pietrangelo, giving him 11 on the season. It seems like the 28-year-old has finally broken out of his funk. Prior to this two-goal "outburst" he had been held without a point for six straight games. In fact, before he lit the lamp Tuesday against Minnesota, Pietrangelo had only scored two goals in his previous 42 contests. Maybe the veteran will be back to get hot before the regular season ends.

Pietrangelo scored a goal and posted a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

This was Pietrangelo's second goal in 35 games and his ninth of the season. Pietrangelo continues to put his name in the Norris Trophy conversation, as he also has 27 assists, 141 shots on goal and 111 blocked shots while averaging 25:22 through 52 games. The captain is on pace for his best statistical season yet, mainly because he is the No. 1 blueliner now, so fantasy teams should continue reaping the benefits of the continuously underrated stud.

Pietrangelo won the passing challenge at the NHL Skills Competition on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

For a blueliner who has had at least 30 assists in each non-lockout season since the 2010-11 campaign, this was a long time coming. Pietrangelo was a first-round draft pick in 2008 due to his passing skills -- whether it's long stretch passes or crafty power-play feeds. The 27-year-old has eight goals and 27 assists through 47 games this season, as he's fully taken over the reigns after last year's trade of Kevin Shattenkirk.

Pietrangelo had two assists, including one on the power play, and put four shots on goal in a 3-1 win over the Avalanche on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Some players my be looking forward to the All-Star break, but Pietrangelo likely isn't one of them. The 27-year-old has a point in six of his last seven games, and he's tallied seven points overall in those contests. He's also averaged over 3:30 per game with the extra man, which is a career high for him.

Pietrangelo fired two shots on goal and had a minus-3 rating through 23:06 of action Saturday against the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Pietrangelo had this minus-3 rating at the first intermission, when the Blues were down 4-0 already. The Blues certainly expect more out of their captain in front of the home crowd, although had one goal and three assists in the four games prior to Saturday's matchup. Still, Pietrangelo can't have nights off like this, so look for him to turn it around Tuesday against the Senators.
