2019 Fantasy Outlook
Kyrou couldn't quite find his groove at the NHL level as a rookie, posting just three points in 16 games, but he took control in the minors with 16 goals and 27 assists in 47 contests. The 21-year-old has a unique combination of speed and a wicked release on his wrist shot -- some experts even touted him as a better prospect than Robert Thomas -- so the Blues want him to get more comfortable in the offensive zone before ascending him to the NHL ranks full time. That time could be coming soon, as the Blues likely won't re-sign Patrick Maroon, so Kyrou will have a chance to battle Zachary Sanford, Sammy Blais and Ivan Barbashev for consistent minutes in the bottom six and work his way up the lineup.

Heads to non-roster IR

Kneecap
September 30, 2019
The Blues placed Kyrou (kneecap) on non-roster injured reserve, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Coach Craig Berube said a week ago that Kyrou was almost ready to fully participate in practice, but the 21-year-old is still being held back. Without any preseason work, Kyrou was likely going to start the season with AHL San Antonio, but he can't be sent down until he's healthy. Still, Kyrou figures to ascend to the big club at some point this season, whether it's because of injuries or outgrowing the minor-league game.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kyrou is widely considered one of the top skaters out of this year's prospects, and he has the ability to single handedly generate opportunities. The OHL was child's play for him, as he tore up the league with 39 goals and 109 points -- the most points among right wingers -- in 56 games. The 20-year-old's monster stat line earned him the Red Tilson Trophy for most outstanding player in the league. Kyrou accomplished this despite missing games to play for Team Canada at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championships, where he notched 10 points in seven games. It's clear Kyrou is an NHL-caliber talent, but the Blues depth at wing could give them difficult choices to make: allow Kyrou to play top-six minutes with AHL San Antonio or plug him into the bottom-six with the big club? Either one should make fantasy owners wary of picking the rookie, but his unique abilities render him a top choice for keeper leagues.
