Schwartz will not require surgery for an upper-body injury suffered during the 2018 IIHF World Championship, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a maximum of two games remaining for Canada, Schwartz may miss the rest of the tournament, but figures to be ready for the start of training camp in the fall. Players sustaining injuries in an international competition is one of every team's biggest fears and is part of the reason the NHL decided not to allow its players to take part in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Fortunately for fans and fantasy owners alike, it appears the winger avoided a more serious issue.

Schwartz sustained an undisclosed injury while facing Russia on Thursday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadian team eked out a 5-4 overtime win over Russia in this quarterfinals matchup, with Schwartz bagging an apple over 12:54 of ice time before departing with injury upon getting drilled into the boards. One of the Blues' prized forwards, Schwartz is sure to be reevaluated ahead of the next round Saturday.

Schwartz racked up 24 goals and 59 points while notching a plus-15 rating in 62 games.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz missed 20 games in the middle of the season due to a broken foot, marking the second time in three years that he faced an extended absence. The 25-year-old winger recorded the highest points-per-game rate on the team and scored at the highest rate since entering the league -- 24 goals on 157 shots (15.3 percent). Still, it's worrisome that Schwartz could be tagged as injury prone as he approaches his seventh NHL season.

Schwartz recorded a power-play goal and an even-strength assist Saturday, but the Blues' 5-2 road loss to the Avalanche bumped St. Louis from playoff contention.

EDGE Analysis

An ankle injury prevented Schwartz from setting a new career high in points, though he still wound up with 24 goals and 35 assists (11 power-play points) through 62 games to finish as the team's most efficient generator of offense. He'll likely be discounted in fantasy drafts due to his trouble staying healthy, but Schwartz could provide a huge return on the investment if he manages to play out a full season for the first time in his career in 2018-19.

Schwartz tied the game in the third period and won it in overtime, lifting his squad to a 2-1 victory over Boston on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's a shame that Schwartz had to miss 20 games with an ankle injury, because if he hadn't, there's a good chance he'd be in the top 25 in the league in points. He's averaging a point per game for the first time in his career and still has a chance to beat his career high of 63 points.

Schwartz scored his 20th goal of the season while adding two assists, two shots and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

He's one of the few Blues who's been consistently productive lately, and Schwartz now has two goals and seven points in his last six games. The 25-year-old is now one point shy of his fourth career 50-point campaign thanks to his spot on the top line, and even after missing 20 games earlier in the season due to an ankle injury, he still has a shot at matching or topping his career high of 63 points set in 2014-15.

Schwartz scored his 19th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

The goal stretches his point streak to a modest three games and four points (one goal, three assists). Schwartz remains at a point-per-game pace, but he'll be lucky to hit 60 outings this season following injury. Remember him for draft day next season.

Schwartz recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The two helpers snapped a three-game point drought and returned Schwartz to a point-per-game pace for the campaign. He's well on the way to the fourth 20-goal, 50-point showing of his career, and the winger has also missed 20 games with an ankle injury. St. Louis dealing Paul Stastny at the trade deadline hurts the entire team's offensive outlook moving forward, but it probably shouldn't be a major concern for Schwartz's fantasy owners.

Schwartz has three goals and three assists in the last six games.

EDGE Analysis

Schwartz has also fired the puck on goal 19 times in that span, yielding a conversion rate of 15.8 percent. Also, three of those points were with the man advantage, showing improvement in the Blues' power-play system, as he only accrued five points with the extra man in the previous 34 games. There's no reason to think this pace won't keep up either, since he racked up points at same rate before his ankle injury.

Schwartz scored a power-play goal on one of his six shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville.
