    News: Brodziak scored a second-period goal and logged 15:41 of ice time during Thursday's win over the Canucks.
    Impact: While Brodziak has found the scoresheet in consecutive games and averaged 15:15 of ice time over his past seven outings, the veteran pivot is hardly a reliable fantasy asset. Still, the bump in ice time is the result of a center corps decimated with injuries, so he could continue to provide a fleeting boost of offense. You should still aim higher in the majority of fantasy settings, though.

    News: Brodziak returned to the lineup Sunday after being a healthy scratch the previous game and scored a goal on three shots over 13:04 of ice time in a 3-0 blanking of the Avalanche.
    Impact: When Brodziak popped up as a healthy scratch for the first time this season last Friday, we wondered whether the decision was fueled by a desire to evaluate the team's younger talent over the final five weeks of the season. Apparently not. Ivan Barbashev and Zach Sanford were scratched Sunday in favor of Brodziak and Nail Yakupov. Ultimately, these are third and fourth-liners, so there's little fantasy value to be gleaned from these players, but we are curious about the direction of the organization. St. Louis currently sits in eighth place in the Western Conference and is one losing streak away from irrelevance.

    News: Brodziak and Patrik Berglund collected goals on Sunday for the Blues, who stopped a five-game skid and moved past the idle Los Angeles Kings for the second wild-card slot in the Western Conference.
    Impact: Brodziak made it 2-0 in the three-goal victory over the Avs when he converted Fedor Tyutin's turnover into his eighth goal.
    Rotowire: Mar 4 / 3:36a ET
    News: Brodziak was a healthy scratch for Friday's 3-0 loss to the Jets.
    Impact: There wasn't much said about the decision, and St. Louis GM Doug Armstrong told the St. Louis Post-Disatch that the organization isn't "throwing in the towel," but the Blues have the whiff of a team that's playing out the string. Coach Mike Yeo had Ivan Barbashev centering the fourth line in place of the veteran Brodziak and newcomer Zach Sanford was active. Throw in youngster Magnus Paajarvi and it sure looks like Brodziak's playing time could take a hit while the organization pivots toward next season.
