Carl Gunnarsson is putting his rough 2016-17 campaign behind him as he gets ready for the coming season.

"I just got off on the wrong foot and it went on from there, just a bad circle," Gunnarsson said. "Like injuries, not playing well, not getting in the lineup. That’s all in the past. It’s a new season and we’re looking forward to it. It’s going to be fun." He had no goals and six assists in 56 contests last season. He also averaged just 13:36 minutes per contest compared to his average of 17:23 minutes a season prior. He might bounce back this season, but he's not much of an offensive threat so he won't factor into most fantasy leagues even if he does perform better for St. Louis.

Gunnarsson also had 68 blocks, while averaging just 13:36 of ice time per match.
