25-Year-Old Left WingLW
St. Louis Blues
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sanford missed most of the 2017-18 season with a shoulder injury and never got a call from the big club, but he was a fixture with the Blues last year, compiling 20 points, 48 hits and 37 blocked shots in 60 games. Although he wasn't called on much in the playoffs, he made the most of his four appearances in the Stanley Cup final, notching a goal and four points over five games to take down the Bruins -- his hometown team. Sanford's skill is evident, as he has an excellent shot and his 6-foot-4 frame helps him win battles in the corners, so the Blues just need him to stay healthy in order to become a more consistent middle-six asset. With a two-year, $3 million contract under his belt, he has a solid chance of approaching 25 points in the upcoming campaign. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $3 million contract with the Blues in July of 2019, avoiding arbitration.
Busts out of scoring skid
LWSt. Louis Blues
February 25, 2020
Sanford scored twice and added an assist with a career-high nine shots in Tuesday's 6-5 win over Chicago.
ANALYSIS
Sanford has picked up his points in bunches this season, counting a 4-point game, a 3-point game and 2-goal outing in February alone. But he also has been held scoreless in seven of his 12 games during the month and had gone his previous five without a point. It's been a career year overall for the 25-year-old, who has established personal highs in points (29), goals (15), assists (14), plus/minus (plus-15), PIM (26) and shooting percentage (18.8). He's still hard to trust in most fantasy formats give his streaky production, but you could do worse in deep leagues.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2013
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.
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.
