Upshall had two shots on goal and two penalty minutes in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old has quietly been productive this season notching 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in 27 games, but is currently on a five game pointless streak -- his longest of the season. Regardless, Upshall has only been receiving 11:15 of ice time and skating mainly on the fourth line, making his early season point total quite impressive.

Upshall recorded his first goal of the season and added two assists in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

The fourth-line winger only had one assist on his previous 11 games entering Saturday and isn't known for his offensive output. The veteran offers depth scoring and strong PIM totals, but ultimately isn't very valuable outside of some very deep fantasy leagues.

Upshall signed a one-year, one-way contract worth $800,000 with the Blues on Sunday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With their forward group having been decimated by injury this preseason, the Blues have turned to a familiar face in Upshall to provide reinforcements. Upshall's never blown anyone away with his offensive ability, but his value comes from his ability to provide energy, his responsibility in his own end, and his penalty-killing abilities. That said, none of these qualities directly show up on the scoreline, limiting Upshall's fantasy prospects.

Upshall signed a PTO with the Blues on Saturday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports.

EDGE Analysis

The gritty winger played for the Notes the past two seasons before testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this summer. He garnered a PTO with the Canucks earlier in the month, but was ultimately released. St. Louis has been hit hard with injuries, and devastating is the recent news that Robby Fabbri (knee) will be out for the entire season. Upshall can probably help in a pinch, but he won't be coveted in fantasy circles since he's accumulated a mere 47 points over 206 games over the last three seasons -- including 2014-15 with Florida.

Upshall was released from his professional tryout agreement with the Canucks on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Upshall made it deep into the preseason before getting the axe, but just couldn't earn his way onto the 23-man roster. The 33-year-old notched 10 goals and eight helpers in 73 games with the Blues last season. What's next for the winger is uncertain, but it clearly won't be a full time gig in Vancouver.

Upshall agreed to terms on a professional tryout agreement with Vancouver on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of Sportsnet 650 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upshall logged 73 outings with the Blues last season in which he recorded 10 goals and eight helpers -- his first 10-goal campaign since 2013-14. Despite the number of contests the winger appeared in, he still averaged a mere 10:59 of ice time -- although 1:46 of that came on the penalty kill. If the veteran does make the team coming out of camp, it will likely be due to his shorthanded contributions.

Upshall, an unrestricted free agent, is starting to draw more interest from NHL teams, Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upshall had a decent year for as a bottom-six winger for the Blues last season, as he scored 10 goals to complement eight helpers over 73 games and a mere 10:59 of average ice time. According to this latest report, he could latch on with an NHL club on a professional tryout agreement, otherwise, he has the option of playing overseas.

Upshall netted his 10th goal of the season, bagged an assist and dished out five hits in Saturday's win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Upshall doesn't hold much fantasy value due to his fourth-line role, but he showed Saturday why he's worth owning in some very deep leagues. He's racked up 45 PIM and is never afraid to throw around the body, but his 18 points simply don't cut it in fantasy leagues that just concentrate on offense.

Upshall scored a goal and he posted a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-0 victory against the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Upshall has goals in back-to-back games for the first time since March 13-14, 2014. He still has just nine goals and 14 points overall on the season and the veteran remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy pools despite the unexpected two-game goal outburst. However, he is worth a roll of the dice Tuesday against the Avalanche in DFS as a low-priced option with upside, especially since Colorado ranks last in the NHL in goal differential.

Upshall scored a goal and had three shots on net over 13:50 of ice time in Thursday's 4-1 win over San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

St. Louis scored first when Upshall intercepted a pass at center ice, then set up the traffic in front of him to beat the Sharks' Aaron Dell with a wrister. It was the type of goal you'd see from more gifted snipers. His ice time Thursday wasn't a season high, but it was damn close. The introduction of some younger players to the active roster, like Ivan Barbashev, Magnus Paajarvi and Zachary Sanford, has led to more ice time for the veteran unit that had traditionally been the Blues' fourth line -- Upshall, Kyle Brodziak and Ryan Reaves.
