C 1. Ryan Getzlaf
Active

Ryan Getzlaf scored the only regulation goal for the Ducks as they beat the Predators 2-1 in a shootout on Monday night.

The goal was Getzlaf’s fourth of the season and gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead with a minute left in second period. The Ducks’ captain has amassed 12 points in 13 games and continues to be an important piece in his team’s offense. Rickard Rakell and Hampus Lindholm drew assists on his goal.

Nov 13

2. Ryan Kesler
Active

Ryan Kesler (undisclosed) was able to play in Tuesday's 4-1 loss at Los Angeles, tallying the team's only goal.

Kesler was a game-time decision due to an undisclosed ailment, but he was able to shake it off and beat Jack Campbell midway through the second period. He was able to snap an eight-game scoreless drought, entering play with no points and a minus-6 rating dating back to Oct. 17. He'll look to keep it rolling Wednesday night against the visiting Flames.

Nov 7

3. Adam Henrique
Active

Adam Henrique found the back of the net and registered an assist in Anaheim's 5-2 win over San Jose on Wednesday.

Henrique is in his first full season with the Ducks after being a midseason acquisition in 2017-18. He ended up recording 24 goals and 50 points in 81 contests last season, including 36 points in 57 games with Anaheim.

Oct 4

4. Carter Rowney
I.L.

Carter Rowney (upper body) did not practice Tuesday.

Rowney only lasted one shift against Dallas on Saturday. He has been moved to injured reserve, according to CapFriendly's transactions page.

Oct 16

5. Chase De Leo
Active

Anaheim has summoned Chase De Leo from the minors.

De Leo has two goals and five points in eight matches with the AHL's San Diego Gulls this year. He may get a chance to make his Anaheim debut.

Nov 6

6. Ben Street
Active

Ben Street will serve as a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

The 31-year-old has three goals and two assists in 17 games so far this season. Jake Dotchin, who was recalled from the minors on Sunday, will also watch the game from the press box.

Nov 18

7. Kalle Kossila
Active

The Anaheim Ducks have summoned Kalle Kossila.

Kossila has three goals and seven points in six AHL games. He's appeared in one game with Anaheim this season and logged 11:22 minutes in that contest.

Nov 12

LW 1. Rickard Rakell
Active

Rickard Rakell has struggled this season but is starting to garner points once again.

Rakell started the season off right with a three point game on opening night but then went into a big slump in which he had only one point seven games. Lately he has been hot with eight points in nine games and is now playing with his regular linemates Patrick Eaves and Ryan Getzlaf as both were injured during his slump. He has only three goals and 12 points in 17 games after a pair of 30-plus goal seasons but he is capable of returning to that mark as he is a goal scorer.

Nov 9

2. Andrew Cogliano
Active

Andrew Cogliano practiced on a shutdown line with Carter Rowney and Brian Gibbons on Friday.

Cogliano is used to playing alongside Ryan Kesler and Jacob Silfverberg, but Kesler is still recovering from hip surgery and Silfverberg practiced with Adam Henrique and Ondrej Kase instead. The line of Cogliano-Rowney-Gibbons might not stick, but Ducks coach Randy Carlyle wanted to test it out. "We think we are going to experiment and see if there’s a new grouping and see if some of them can make a contribution," Carlyle said. "But it’s not ever cast in stone. The reason you would go back to it is if the other things don’t work. Some people would say, ‘Why are you changing it?’ In sports, there have to be changes. You have to elevate. We have to create more of an up-tempo style and I don’t know if holding that line together, in its present-day form, will allow us to have the same impact it had previously, with the way we are going to line people up." Cogliano had 12 goals and 35 points in 80 contests last season.

Sep 22

3. Nick Ritchie
Active

Nick Ritchie (lower body) was activated from the IL on Friday November 9.

Ritchie was out for six consecutive games. He had a minus-two rating and five hits in 15:08 minutes Friday night.

Nov 10

4. Brian Gibbons
Active

Brian Gibbons (hand) will be in the lineup for Saturday night's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Gibbons was injured when he blocked a shot during a preseason game. Pontus Aberg, Luke Schenn and Isac Lundestrom will be the healthy scratches while Corey Perry (knee), Ryan Kesler (hip), Patrick Eaves (shoulder) and Ondrej Kase (concussion) will also miss the game.

Oct 6

RW 1. Jakob Silfverberg
Active

Jakob Silfverberg finished with a minus-two rating in a 5-0 loss to the Golden Knights on Wednesday night.

Silfverberg and the Ducks couldn’t find the back of the net in Vegas despite having more shots on net than their opponents and the end result was a shutout loss. The 28-year old Swede was one of six players to finish with a team-worst minus-two rating. Following his return from a finger injury, Silfverberg has been unable to regain his scoring touch from earlier this season and has collected only three points in his last nine games. Overall, he has five goals and 10 points in 15 games this season.

Nov 15

2. Ondrej Kase
Active

Ondrej Kase scored his first of the season Sunday in a 4-3 loss in overtime to Colorado.

It was good news for Kase owners as he has been moved to the top line, alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Rickard Rakell and the line was terrific all night as they controlled the play when on the ice. Kase is worth a pickup now in plenty of leagues.

Nov 19

3. Kiefer Sherwood
Active

Kiefer Sherwood was called up from the minors on Wednesday November 14.

Sherwood's latest trip to the AHL only ended up lasting a couple days. He had a minus-one rating and four hits in 14:15 minutes of playing time Wednesday night.

Nov 15

4. Patrick Eaves
I.L.

Patrick Eaves' upper-body injury is back spasms.

Eaves last played on Nov. 9. He has no points in five games this season.

Nov 16

5. Pontus Aberg
Active

Pontus Aberg scored Anaheim's lone goal in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to Toronto.

Aberg put an end to the Ducks' goalless drought (124:05) at the 18:35 mark of the second period. Nick Ritchie and Adam Henrique earned assists on the play. He started the match alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Rickard Rakell before being replaced by Ondrej Kase. Aberg has six goals and one assist in 15 games this year.

Nov 17

6. Corey Perry
I.L.

Corey Perry (knee) has been moved to the long-term injured reserve list.

That gives the Ducks some extra cap flexibility while Perry recovers from surgery to address a torn meniscus and a preexisting MCL injury. Perry shouldn't be expected to return until late February.

Oct 10

7. Kevin Roy
I.L.

Kevin Roy (upper body) is still unable to practice.

Roy was injured a week ago with an undisclosed upper body injury and has not returned to action. He is on a two-way contract and unless he can return quickly, he likely will start his season in the minors. He had six goals and a helper in 25 games with Anaheim last season.

Sep 24

D 1. Cam Fowler
I.L.

While the surgery on the jaw went well for Cam Fowler on Friday, there is no timetable for his return.

That's probably not good news for Fowler owners as he should be gone for a long time, otherwise there would be a timetable for his return. The Ducks best defenseman had three goals and 10 points in 19 games before the injury.

Nov 19

2. Hampus Lindholm
I.L.

Hampus Lindholm is dealing with a lower-body injury.

Lindholm has been placed on injured reserve. The 24-year-old has two goals and 10 points in 21 games this season.

Nov 18

3. Brandon Montour
Active

Brandon Montour picked up a goal and two assists in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Montour and the Ducks were in good shape in the second period, as they were up 3-1 late in the frame. Unfortunately for Anaheim, they watched that lead evaporate thanks to goals by Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. NHL scoring leader Mikko Rantanen then added the game-winning goal with less than two seconds remaining in overtime. Montour ended up finishing the game with a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in 25:28 of ice time. The 24-year-old has two goals and nine points in 22 games this season.

Nov 18

4. Josh Manson
Active

Josh Manson is on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Wednesday's game against the Calgary Flames.

Manson has been taken off injured reserve and appears to be ready to play tonight.

Nov 7

5. Jacob Larsson
Active

Jacob Larsson was called up from the minors on Sunday October 28.

Larsson was a minus-one with a couple of shots on goal Sunday in his seasonal debut. He did not play at all in the NHL during the regular season last year but played four times in 2016-17. He had three goals and 16 points in 50 AHL games in 2017-18 and has little fantasy value at this time.

Oct 29

6. Marcus Pettersson
Active

Marcus Pettersson will spend Friday's game in the press box.

Pettersson has two assists in 16 games this season. Though he's been regularly in the lineup, the defenseman has been averaging a modest 12:39 minutes per game.

Nov 9

7. Jake Dotchin
Active

The Anaheim Ducks have recalled Jake Dotchin from the minors.

The 24-year-old has one assist and 18 penalty minutes in seven games with AHL San Diego. Don't expect him to carry any fantasy value while he's with the big club.

Nov 18

8. Korbinian Holzer
I.L.

Korbinian Holzer (wrist) is on the long-term injured reserve list.

No surprise there, given that Holzer is projected to be out until mid-February. When he is healthy, Holzer might be sent to the AHL, depending on what Anaheim's situation is at that point.

Oct 10

9. Andrew Welinski
Active

Andrew Welinski has been summoned from the minors.

Welinski has appeared in five games with the Ducks this season and he has contributed one assist.

Nov 13

G 1. John Gibson
Sidelined

John Gibson (illness) will not play in Sunday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Ryan Miller will get the start for the Ducks. Gibson is considered day-to-day at this point. The Ducks recalled goalie Kevin Boyle from the minors to replace Gibson.

Nov 18

2. Ryan Miller
Active

Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 42 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

The Ducks jumped out to a 3-1 lead early in the second period, but that's when things fell apart. The Avalanche got themselves back in the game because their top players started producing. Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog scored in regulation, while Mikko Rantanen added the game-winner with less than two seconds left in overtime. The loss drops Miller's record to 2-2-1 on the season. He'll enter his next appearance with a 2.71 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage.

Nov 18

C 1. Derek Stepan
Active

Derek Stepan scored his second shorthanded goal of the season Thursday in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Flyers.

Stepan has three goals and seven points this season but the real story is the Coyotes penalty killing as they have scored nine times this season while giving up only four power play goals. Perhaps teams should decline penalties when playing Arizona.

Nov 9

2. Alex Galchenyuk
Active

Alex Galchenyuk scored once and added an assist in a 4-1 win over Washington Sunday.

Galchenyuk has three goals and eight points in 10 games this season as he is getting comfortable in Arizona after being dealt for Max Domi in the off-season. He missed the start of the season with a lower-body injury but is getting plenty of ice time in the middle for the Coyotes. We would recommend him in all but the shallowest of leagues at this time.

Nov 12

3. Christian Dvorak
I.L.

While there is no timetable for Christian Dvorak (pectoral surgery), it's entirely possible that he could miss the entire season.

At the very least, Dvorak's absence will be measured in months, not weeks or days. It's a very unfortunate development for Dvorak, who was already sidelined with an unrelated lower-body injury and was hurt while trying to recover from that issue. He had 15 goals and 37 points in 78 games last season.

Oct 20

4. Dylan Strome
Active

Dylan Strome will be a healthy scratch on Thursday night against the Nashville Predators.

Strome has points in consecutive games but will sit for the second time this season.

Nov 15

5. Brad Richardson
Active

Brad Richardson scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Vinnie Hinostroza fed Richardson with a great pass that he converted for his team leading sixth goal of the season. The Coyotes have had a hard time finding the back of the net this season, evident by a career journeyman leading the team in goals almost a quarter of the way into the season. The 33-year-old Richardson is not someone to add, even in deeper leagues.

Nov 17

6. Dave Bolland
I.L.

Dave Bolland (lower body) might not be able to play in the NHL again.

Bolland will probably open the season on the long-term injured reserve list after failing his physical. "He’s working towards trying to (play), but again injuries are what they are. He’s been trying to comeback from that injury for the last nine months and he hasn’t gotten to the stage where he can do that to be cleared," said agent Anton Thun. "His goal is to try to continue to play, but at some point in time, it may just be not happening. He may never play again." He's completed two seasons of his five-year, .5 million deal.

Oct 6

LW 1. Brendan Perlini
Active

The Arizona Coyotes were blanked by a score of 4-0 by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.

The Coyotes fired off 39 shots on Casey DeSmith in this one, but none could crack Pittsburgh's netminder. Brendan Perlini and Brad Richardson led the way with a game-high six shots each in this one. Arizona will be back in action on Sunday evening when they travel to Washington to face the Capitals.

Nov 10

2. Michael Grabner
Active

Michael Grabner already has four shorthanded goals this season.

Grabner leads the NHL in that regard after also finishing with the most shorthanded goals in 2017-18 (six). As you might imagine, he's developed a well-earned reputation as someone that's a threat to score, even on the penalty kill. "He’s a veteran and he’s very smart," Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said of Grabner. "There are pressure points on a power play and as a penalty killer that he knows where to go and when the pressure is being played. That’s just his experience over the years. That’s why he’s been such a good penalty-killer. He knows when the power play is applying pressure and knows where to go. He knows where the most likely place is that the puck will probably go."

Nov 16

3. Vinnie Hinostroza
Active

Vinnie Hinostroza scored a power play goal Sunday in a 4-1 win over Washington.

The goal opened the scoring for Arizona. It was Hinostroza's fourth goal of the year as well as his eighth point in 16 games. He should only be in your lineup in the deepest of leagues.

Nov 12

4. Nick Cousins
Active

The Arizona Coyotes were shutout by a score of 3-0 by the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.

Surprisingly, it was Nick Cousins who led the way for the Coyotes with six shots on goal. He was one of Arizona's bright spots tonight, even moving up onto the top line alongside Clayton Keller and Dylan Strome to start the third period with the Coyotes down 3-0. Cousins is a former third round pick but we'd be surprised to see him maintain any fantasy value this season, even if he continues to skate alongside Keller.

Oct 4

5. Lawson Crouse
Active

Lawson Crouse scored a goal in Tuesday’s 6-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Coyotes won a faceoff in their own end, launching an attack by Crouse who skated down the left side before firing a hard wrister in behind Jimmy Howard to break Detroit’s shutout bid midway through the final frame. Crouse is a former 11th overall pick but he never quite developed offensively. He has just three goals in 16 games this season.

Nov 13

RW 1. Clayton Keller
Active

Clayton Keller scored his fourth of the season in a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

Keller now has four goals in four games for the Coyotes, and three of those four games have been victories for his team. Thursday night's marker will stand as the game-winner, the fourth of his career. Keller has four goals and six points in nine games this year. Arizona also got goals from Alex Goligoski, Brad Richardson, and Lawson Crouse in the victory.

Oct 26

2. Christian Fischer
Active

Christian Fischer scored three goals during Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Fischer combined with Derek Stepan for all of his goals, with the first coming when the Blue Jackets left Fischer alone in front and the second on a beautiful feed to give Arizona a 3-1 lead. Finally, Fischer capped off his night when Stepan found him in the slot alone and he wired home a wrister. Not only was tonight Fischer’s first career hat trick, but it was also his first multi-goal game. He is now up to 22 goals and 40 points in 94 career games. The 21-year-old winger finds himself at four goals in eight games this season. Dylan Strome also scored in the win.

Oct 23

3. Josh Archibald
Suspended

The NHL has issued Josh Archibald a two-game suspension.

Archibald is being suspended for hitting Nashville's Ryan Hartman in the head. The NHL felt that Archibald made the head the primary point of contact and that head contact was avoidable. Archibald is eligible to return on Nov. 23.

Nov 16

4. Marian Hossa
I.L.

The actual amount of money that the Arizona Coyotes will pay Marian Hossa annually is just 0,000.

Hossa, who Arizona acquired from Chicago on Thursday, has three years left on his contract with a ,275,000 cap hit. Because the contract was heavily frontloaded, Hossa's actual salary over the next three seasons is just million annually. However, the Coyotes are paying even less than that because most of his remaining contract is covered by insurance. This all makes it easier for the Coyotes to stay above the salary floor while expending less money.

Jul 13

D 1. Oliver Ekman-Larsson
Active

Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored a goal and assisted on another in Thursday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

With the Coyotes on the power play, Ekman-Larsson took a backhand pass from Clayton Keller, firing off a wrister that beat Calvin Pickard through traffic for his second goal of the year. Ekman-Larsson then followed that up with the primary assist on Michael Grabner’s shorthanded goal. The Swedish blueliner had a slow start to the season, failing to pick up a point in the opening five games but he has now picked up 10 in his last nine games. The 27-year-old blueliner is also a plus-five on the year. A great achievement considering he hasn’t finished as a plus player since the 2012-13 season.

Nov 8

2. Alex Goligoski
I.L.

Alex Goligoski (lower body) is on the injured reserve list.

Goligoski has been sidelined for three straight games. He can be activated whenever he's healthy.

Nov 15

3. Jakob Chychrun
I.L.

Jakob Chychrun (upper body) could return as early as Wednesday.

Chychrun has been plagued by injuries yet again this season and has only played once this season. He participated in practice Sunday but it was only part of the practice as he left early. Still, coach Rick Tocchet said he was a possibility to return on Wednesday. Stay tuned.

Nov 19

4. Jason Demers
I.L.

Sources have confirmed that Jason Demers is out for the rest of the season with what is believed to be a knee injury.

To this point, Arizona has only said that Demers is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury and he has been put on injured resereve. If his season is over then Demers will finish the year with a goal and three points in 19 games.

Nov 18

5. Niklas Hjalmarsson
Active

Niklas Hjalmarsson has officially singed a two-year, million contract extension.

Hjalmarsson is getting a boost over his existing .1 million cap hit. He has a season left in his current deal, so Arizona has secured his rights for the next three campaigns. He scored a goal and nine points in 48 contests while averaging 20:42 minutes last season.

Jul 1

6. Kevin Connauton
Active

Kevin Connauton (illness) will be in the lineup on Monday night against the Flyers.

Connauton missed the last two games due to his illness. He has two points in 10 games this season.

Nov 5

7. Jordan Oesterle
Active

Jordan Oesterle's first of the season opened the scoring in Arizona's 7-1 thrashing of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It was quite an effort from the Coyotes who won their third straight game and are 5-5-0 this season, a huge improvement over last season's 0-10-1 start. Oesterle has been solid on the blueline and while his fantasy value is negligible, the former Blackhawk is off to a good start with four points in seven games including two assists on the power play.

Oct 28

8. Ilya Lyubushkin
Active

The Arizona Coyotes will scratch Ilya Lyubushkin on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Lyubushkin has played three games, failing to pick up a single point. Dylan Strome will also sit.

Oct 27

G 1. Antti Raanta
I.L.

Antti Raanta (lower body) was back at practice Sunday.

It was not a full practice for the goaltender who has missed the last seven games with the injury, but it was a start and coach Rick Tocchet said that Raanta could return as early as Wednesday, the Coyotes next game. The Coyotes are 2-4-1 since Raanta went down so they could really use a healthy Raanta back in net as he is 5-4-0 with a 2.10 GAA and a .929 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Darcy Kuemper
Active

Darcy Kuemper gave up two goals on 23 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Kuemper had as good a night as one could hope with three regular defensemen missing from their lineup. Arizona's backup netminder had yet another solid outing, his teammates just couldn't generate much offense. His record falls to 4-5-1 with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage.

Nov 17

3. Hunter Miska
Active

Hunter Miska has been called up by Arizona on an emergency basis.

Arizona also announced that Antti Raanta is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Miska will serve as Darcy Kuemper's understudy while Raanta is sidelined.

Nov 7

C 1. Patrice Bergeron
Sidelined

Patrice Bergeron (upper body) won't be available for Wednesday's game at Detroit.

Beyond that, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy did not have much of an update on Bergeron's status. "He was meeting [with doctors] today, so we have nothing new," Cassidy said Monday. "I know he was in a lot of pain, but I don't know if there's anything major which is good news. But I don't want to speculate. I just know that he's not coming back to Detroit."

Nov 19

2. David Krejci
Active

David Krejci is slated to play with David Pastrnak and Anders Bjork on Saturday night.

Patrice Bergeron is out due to an upper-body injury so the lineup has undergone some changes. Brad Marchand is projected to play alongside Joakim Nordstrom and Jake DeBrusk.

Nov 17

3. Sean Kuraly
Active

Sean Kuraly moved to the fourth line on Monday afternoon against Ottawa.

Kuraly struggled on the third line in the first two games of the year. He helped set up a goal by Chris Wagner in the second period for his first point of the season.

Oct 9

4. Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson
Active

Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson scored his first career goal on Saturday.

Forsbacka Karlsson's goal came just 1:12 minutes into the contest. It gave Boston a 1-0 lead over Arizona en route to a 2-1 win. He also has a goal and four points in nine AHL games this season.

Nov 18

5. Chris Wagner
Active

Chris Wagner will be a healthy scratch Friday night.

Noel Acciari will draw into the lineup in his place. Wagner has a goal and an assist in 17 games this season.

Nov 16

LW 1. Brad Marchand
Active

Brad Marchand picked up 18 penalty minutes during Friday's 1-0 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins.

Marchand picked up a double-minor for going after Radek Faksa after he hit Patrice Bergeron. The Bruins forward was then whistled for a bogus slashing call on Stars goalie Ben Bishop and he received a 10-minute misconduct on the play. He then took a roughing penalty against Roman Polak after he was done serving the 12 minutes in penalties. The 30-year-old has six goals, 20 points and 66 penalty minutes in 19 games this season.

Nov 16

2. Jake DeBrusk
Active

Jake DeBrusk scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

DeBrusk and Brad Marchand worked on a two-on-one chance that DeBrusk finished off after picking up Marchand's rebound for his eighth goal of the year. DeBrusk had a slow start to the year but he now has seven points in his last seven games, giving him 10 in 20 games this season. He's an interesting name to add off your waiver wire if you need help on the wing.

Nov 17

3. Joakim Nordstrom
Active

Joakim Nordstrom has played in a lot of different roles for the Bruins this year.

Nordstrom has played center, the wing, the penalty kill and the power play. "He’s our Swiss Army knife, except he’s Swedish," said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy. "He’s up for it. He just wants to play. He’s happy to get the minutes, happy to move around. It’s nice to have a guy like that." The 26-year-old has two goals in 11 games this season.

Nov 1

RW 1. David Pastrnak
Active

David Pastrnak picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Pastrnak's power-play tally at the 16:43 mark of the first period tied the game at one. He also registered a helper on Jake DeBrusk's goal on the man-advantage early in the second frame. Pastrnak now has a league-leading 17 goals in 18 games this season. He's also accumulated eight assists during that stretch.

Nov 15

2. David Backes
Active

David Backes will move back to the wing after playing at center against the Canucks on Thursday.

Backes will skate on the right side of Forsbacka Karlsson, who was just recalled from the AHL to center the team's third line. This move shouldn't have any fantasy ramifications.

Nov 10

3. Danton Heinen
Active

Danton Heinen scored his second goal in the last three games on Sunday night.

Heinen opened the scoring in a 4-1 win over Vegas. He didn't have a goal and only contributed three assists in his first 12 appearances of the year.

Nov 12

4. Noel Acciari
Active

Noel Acciari will sit out Wednesday night's contest against the Colorado Avalanche.

This will mark his third straight scratch in a pointless 2018-19 season thus far in 15 games. Hes a minus-6 and averaging only 10:52 per game as a depth winger. Jakub Zboril will be the other scratch.

Nov 14

5. Anders Bjork
Active

Anders Bjork played well alongside David Backes and Danton Heinen on Monday night.

Bjork had a goal called back in the contest, but he seems to have gained some confidence from the performance. "Bjorky might be frustrated because he hasn't seen much, so hopefully he sticks with it and gets rewarded next time," coach Bruce Cassidy said. "I just like the fact that they're all out around the front of the net. That's usually how you get out of your slump."

Nov 7

6. Tanner Pond
Active

Jan 1

D 1. Torey Krug
Active

Torey Krug has two assists in three games since making his season debut last week.

Krug picked up his second helper of the season in Monday's 2-1 overtime win over Dallas. Both of his points have come on power plays for the Bruins. Krug also had four shots on goal in Monday's win.

Nov 6

2. Charlie McAvoy
I.L.

Charlie McAvoy (concussion) won't play Wednesday.

However, McAvoy is expected to join the team in Detroit for practice. He is also "questionable" for the weekend, according to coach Bruce Cassidy.

Nov 19

3. Zdeno Chara
Sidelined

The Boston Bruins will not have any healthy bodies in the press box on Saturday night against the Arizona Coyotes.

As previously reported, Chara will miss at least the next four weeks due to a MCL injury. Patrice Bergeron (upper body), John Moore (lower body), Brandon Carlo (upper body), Charlie McAvoy (concussion), Kevan Miller (hand) and Urho Vaakanainen (concussion) are all sidelined.

Nov 17

4. John Moore
Sidelined

John Moore (lower body) has travel back to Boston to be re-evaluated by team doctors.

Moore did not play on Friday and won't be available for Saturday's match either. The Bruins will update his status following his re-evaluation.

Nov 17

5. Brandon Carlo

Brandon Carlo (upper body) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Colorado.

Coach Bruce Cassidy said that Carlo will not travel with the team. He wasn't able to play on Sunday because of an upper-body injury.

Kevan Miller (hand) is expected to play on Wednesday.

Miller has been sidelined since Oct. 18 because of a hand injury. He has one assist in seven games this season.

Nov 19

7. Steven Kampfer
Active

Steven Kampfer may get a chance to play on Saturday night.

Kevan Miller suffered an upper-body injury on a blocked shot during Thursday's overtime loss to Edmonton. Kampfter could make his season debut versus Vancouver as a result.

8. Connor Clifton
Active

Connor Clifton made his NHL debut on Friday night following his call-up from the minors.

Clifton racked up nine penalty minutes, four hits and one block in 18:53 of ice time in a 1-0 OT loss against Dallas. Boston has a banged up defense corps, so Clifton may get to play again on Saturday night versus Arizona.

9. Matthew Grzelcyk
Active

Matthew Grzelcyk felt good in his first game back on Monday night.

"It was nice to kind of get acclimated back out there," Grzelcyk said. "I thought we had a really good first period and kind of controlled the play early, so I thought we were also clean in our own end." Boston returned Jeremy Lauzon, who had been filling in while Grezlcyk was injured, to the minors on Tuesday. Grzelcyk has five assists in 12 appearances this campaign.

10. Jeremy Lauzon
Active

Jeremy Lauzon has been logging big minutes for the Bruins over the last two games.

Lauzon played a career-high 24:52 of ice time against Dallas on Friday and saw 23:29 of action against Arizona on Saturday. He has been paired with Matt Grzelcyk on Boston's injury-depleted defense corps.

Nov 19

11. Urho Vaakanainen
I.L.

Urho Vaakanainen (concussion) will meet the team in Detroit for practice ahead of Wednesday's game, but he won't play.

Vaakanainen is also considered to be "questionable" for the weekend, per coach Bruce Cassidy. He has been out of action since Oct. 23 due to a concussion.

Nov 19

G 1. Tuukka Rask
Active

Tuukka Rask will be in goal Wednesday against Detroit.

Rask played well in his return to the lineup this past Friday in a 1-0 OT loss to Dallas. He had been granted a leave of absence for a personal matter. Rask has a 4-4-1 record this season with a 2.78 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Jaroslav Halak
Active

Jaroslav Halak gave up just one goal on 33 shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Halak had some big saves, with the most impressive coming in the first period when he denied Michael Grabner on a shorthanded chance. The 33-year-old goaltender continues to impress in goal. His record improves to 7-2-2 with a 2.07 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage. The Slovakian netminder is still somehow available in 30% of Yahoo leagues.

Nov 17

C 1. Jack Eichel
Active

Jack Eichel had a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Things finally seemed to be going right for the Penguins, jumping out to a 4-1 lead 5:00 into the second period but the Sabres responded with two goals to close out the period and another in the third to force overtime. That is where Eichel capped the comeback with a goal just 45 seconds into the extra frame. The 22-year-old center has five goals and 24 points in 21 games this season. His assist came on Zack Bogosian's second of the year that sparked the comeback.

Nov 19

2. Casey Mittelstadt
Active

Casey Mittelstadt should be plenty motivated to play a strong game Saturday night against the Wild.

Mittelstadt is from the Minnesota and he will be playing in front of many family and friends Saturday night. "It should be exciting, I think," Mittelstadt said. "I haven’t seen a lot of those people since I’ve been to Buffalo in August. It will be fun to see them, see all my buddies from home. They’re all going to be there. That will be the best part, I think, and hopefully we can get a win." We usually start players in these types of situations and would recommend you do the same with Mittelstadt.

Nov 17

3. Patrik Berglund
Active

Patrik Berglund will get back into the lineup on Friday against Winnipeg.

Berglund was a healthy scratch for the second time this season on Tuesday night. He was on the third line with Vladimír Sobotka and Jason Pominville during Thursday's practice. Berglund also skated on the top power-play unit with Jack Eichel, Jeff Skinner, Sam Reinhart and Rasmus Dahlin.

Nov 16

4. Johan Larsson
Active

Johan Larsson returned to game action on Saturday against Los Angeles.

Larsson served as a healthy scratch for Buffalo's previous three games. He earned an assist along with two hits and three blocks in 17:23 of ice time during a 5-1 win over the Kings.

Oct 21

LW 1. Jeff Skinner
Active

Jeff Skinner scored a goal in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Skinner's power-play goal 53 seconds into the third period tied the game at one. He's now scored at least one goal in four consecutive games, and he's found the back of the net eight times in his last seven contests. The 26-year-old has fit in nicely with his new team, as he's up to 14 goals and 21 points in 19 games this season. Skinner is a making the most of his contract year. He's a must-start in all fantasy formats right now. Jack Eichel, Jason Pominville and Conor Sheary managed to score in the shootout to secure the win for the Sabres.

Nov 16

2. Evan Rodrigues
Active

Evan Rodrigues will be a healthy scratch Friday night.

Patrik Berglund is drawing into the lineup in Rodrigues' place. Rodrigues has six assists in 15 games this season.

Nov 16

3. Conor Sheary
Active

Conor Sheary will make his return to Pittsburgh on Monday night for the first time as a member of the Buffalo Sabres.

"It will be weird staying in the hotel, sitting on the other side of the rink, in a different locker room," Sheary said Friday. "It will be a little different. I've had a lot of good memories in Pittsburgh. Obviously, when you're winning you grow close with that team." He has scored six goals and posted 10 points in 20 games with the Sabres following his acquisition from the Penguins.

Nov 19

4. Remi Elie
Active

Remi Elie will get an opportunity to play on Buffalo's second line on Thursday.

Elie skated with Casey Mittelstadt and Sam Reinhart on Wednesday. The 23-year-old has no points in three games this season.

Nov 1

5. Vladimir Sobotka
Active

Vladimir Sobotka accounted for his team's lone goal in a 4-1 road loss on Tuesday against the Golden Knights.

The point was Sobotka's first in three games this season. He missed some time due to an upper-body injury, but the good news is that he hasn't had any ill effects of the ailment and he appears to be warming up. Still, until he starts etching his name onto the scoresheet on a regular basis he warrants very little in the way of fantasy consideration outside of the deepest pools.

Oct 17

6. Zemgus Girgensons
Active

Zemgus Girgensons notched one goal and one assist in a 9-2 win over Ottawa on Saturday.

Just about every member of the Sabres got into the scoring act in the blowout victory. Girgensons also had two shots and three hits in 14:30 of ice time. He has one goal and five points in 14 games this campaign.

Nov 4

7. Scott Wilson
Sidelined

Scott Wilson has undergone surgery for a fractured ankle.

Wilson was injured at practice on Sunday after he got tangled up with Rasmus Ristolainen along the boards. The team announced that Wilson had undergone surgery late on Monday night. He is expected to be out of action for eight-to-ten weeks.

Oct 2

RW 1. Sam Reinhart
Active

Sam Reinhart will get to start Tuesday's contest on the top line with Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner.

The trio was put together in the third period of Saturday's comeback win over Vancouver and they posted two late goals. The line remained intact for Monday's practice. That bumps Jason Pominville to a combination with Evan Rodrigues and Vladimir Sobotka.

Nov 13

2. Kyle Okposo
Active

Kyle Okposo found the back of the net in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Okposo's fifth goal of the season gave the Sabres a 2-0 lead in the second period. The Lightning scored just 15 seconds later, but Okposo's marker held up as the game winner. He has two goals and one assist in the last five contests.

Nov 14

3. Jason Pominville
Active

Jason Pominville found the back of the net twice and recorded an assist in a 9-2 win against Ottawa on Saturday.

Pominville's first goal of the game proved to be the winner. He's on a seven-game point streak, bringing him to eight goals and 14 points in 14 games this season. It's been a great turnaround for him after a few underwhelming campaigns in a row. He was limited to just 34 points in 2017-18.

Nov 3

4. Tage Thompson
Active

Tage Thompson will be in the lineup on Tuesday night.

Thompson has one assist in 10 games this year. He will replace Patrik Berglund, who will be a healthy scratch, against Tampa Bay.

Nov 13

D 1. Rasmus Ristolainen
Active

Rasmus Ristolainen has been a "catalyst" for the Sabres, according to assistant coach Steve Smith.

"He's certainly been a catalyst," said Smith.. "I think because he's getting more looks and more success and guys are finding him more often. He's been a catalyst for the other guys in a way that allows me to show everyone what we're trying to do." The 24-year-old has a minus-11 rating this season, but he's also added two goals and nine points in 18 contests. The Sabres probably rely on him a little more than he's comfortable with, but he's one of their best defenders right now.

Nov 15

2. Rasmus Dahlin
Active

Rasmus Dahlin scored a goal and picked up an assist in Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Kyle Okposo dumped the puck to Dahlin, who went around a few Wild skaters before sending a feed over to Jake McCabe for an easy goal. Another goal, this time by Dahlin to tie the game at two gave the 18-year-old five points in his last four games, bringing him to 10 points in 20 games this season. Jason Pominville completed the third period comeback with 90 seconds remaining in regulation.

Marco Scandella (foot) will not return to Monday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Scandella took a Malkin blast off the foot. He fell to the ice before having a hard time getting to the bench. Consider him day-to-day for now.

4. Zach Bogosian
Active

Zach Bogosian will make his season debut on Tuesday.

Bogosian has been sidelined with a groin injury since Sept. 25 and this will be his first regular-season appearance since January after he underwent hip surgery. "It's exciting," Bogosian said. "It's not the start how I wanted things to go after coming off surgery but I'm looking forward to getting back." He was paired with Nathan Beaulieu during the morning skate.

Oct 16

5. Jake McCabe
Active

Jake McCabe is expected to return to the lineup on Thursday night.

McCabe missed Tuesday's contest against Calgary because of an upper-body injury, but he was back on a pairing with Rasmus Ristolainen during practice on Wednesday. The 25-year-old has one goal and seven points in 11 games this season.

Nov 1

6. Nathan Beaulieu

Nathan Beaulieu is expected to be a healthy scratch on Monday night against Pittsburgh Penguins.

Beaulieu has three points in his last three games but will be scratched. Remi Elie and Evan Rodrigues will also sit.

Matt Hunwick is out indefinitely with a neck injury.

Hunwick hasn't been able to take part in training camp yet with his new Buffalo teammates. He skated in 42 games with Pittsburgh last season.

Casey Nelson will draw back into the lineup on Saturday.

Nelson will play against Minnesota and Nathan Beaulieu will head to the press box as a healthy scratch.

Nov 17

G 1. Carter Hutton
Active

Carter Hutton stopped 36 of 40 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was a rough start to the game for Hutton who gave up four goals in the opening 25 minutes. The Sabres decided to keep rolling with their starter and were rewarded with a comeback win. His record improves to 9-6-1 with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage. It's the fifth straight win for the 32-year-old veteran goaltender.

Nov 19

2. Linus Ullmark
Active

Linus Ullmark stopped 37 of 39 shots in Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.

It was a tough first period for Ullmark who faced 18 shots, giving up a slightly weak goal to Zach Parise but didn’t have much of a chance on Matt Dumba’s power play blast. The Swedish netminder then responded by blanking the Wild over the final two periods. His record improves to 4-0-1 with a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.

Nov 17

C 1. Sean Monahan
Active

Sean Monahan posted his 10th goal of the season with an assist and plus-1 rating in Saturday's 4-2 victory against the Edmonton Oilers.

Monahan is averaging better than a point-per-game near the quarter pole, posting 10 goals with 21 points through 20 games with four power-play goals and six points on the man advantage. He entered the season with 58 points in four consecutive campaigns, and he is well on his way to not only reaching that level, but perhaps setting a new career high.

Nov 18

2. Mikael Backlund
Active

Mikael Backlund recorded two assists in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Montreal.

Backlund has a goal and six points in nine games this season. That's a points-per-game pace he could roughly maintain, but it wouldn't be surprising if he did slow down a touch as the season progresses.

Oct 24

3. Elias Lindholm
Active

Elias Lindholm scored a pair of goals with a plus-2 rating on four shots with a hit in Saturday's 4-2 victory against the Edmonton Oilers.

Lindholm had an outstanding game, and he even won 12 of his 15 faceoff chances (80.0 percent). It was his fourth game-winning goal of the season, too. He snapped a five-game goal drought dating back to Nov. 1, but he has still been pretty impressive in the assists category during the span. Overall he has 11 goals with 21 points through 20 games, emerging as a must-start in all fantasy pools.

Nov 18

4. Derek Ryan
Active

Derek Ryan scored a power play goal for Calgary Saturday.

This was the first goal of the season for the Flames second power play unit as the top unit of Johnny Gaudreau, Elias Lindholm, Sean Monahan, Mark Giordano and Matthew Tkachuk had combined for the first 12 goals with the man-advantage. Ryan doubled his goal total to two and has four points in 19 games. He has no fantasy value.

Nov 18

5. Mark Jankowski
Active

Mark Jankowski will be a scratch on Thursday against the St. Louis Blues.

He's appeared in two games this season, failing to pick up a point. He'll be joined by Garnet Hathaway and Dalton Prout.

Oct 11

LW 1. Johnny Gaudreau
Active

Johnny Gaudreau posted a pair of assists with three shots on net across 22:18 of ice time in Saturday's 5-3 win against the Blackhawks.

Gaudreau is working on a five-game scoring streak, posting one goal with seven points and a plus-2 rating during the impressive span. One of his assists also came on the power play, and he has a goal with six helpers on the man advantage. He'll look to extend his point streak on Wednesday night in Anaheim.

Nov 4

2. Matthew Tkachuk
Active

Matthew Tkachuk scored two goals in a 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

The winger now has seven points in his last six games for the Flames. Thursday night's effort was also his fifth multi-point game of the season and first since Nov. 1. Tkachuk's a must-have if he's somehow still available on your waiver wire.

Nov 16

3. Michael Frolik
Active

Michael Frolik scored a goal during Monday's 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Frolik potted the insurance marker into an empty net with just six seconds remaining in the game. The 30-year-old now has five goals and no assists in 11 games this season. He's currently on pace to score 37 goals, but don't expect him to reach that total. Sean Monahan and Elias Lindholm also found the back of the net for the Flames on Monday.

Oct 30

4. Dillon Dube
Active

Dillon Dube was activated from the injured list Saturday and he was able to play Saturday against the Oilers.

Dube ended up going scoreless without any shots across nine shifts over 6:05 of ice time. The 20-year-old has a little rust to knock off, and he needs to show he can produce on a regular basis before he is relevant even in the deepest of fantasy pools.

Nov 18

RW 1. James Neal
Active

James Neal continues to slump with only three goals and four points in 20 games this season.

The Flames made Neal their key UFA signing in the off-season but he has struggled all season. "Regardless of what you hear or what you say, I’ve been through this before," Neal said. "I was a big trade to Pittsburgh (in 2011) … You know, go to the Penguins to be a goal-scoring winger, and I didn’t score for 22 games. I was in the biggest drought of my career, probably. I was a guy who is going there to a hockey market to play with the big guys and score goals, and I didn’t score a goal for 22 games." The veteran actually didn't score in 20 games but more than made up for it next season with a 40-goal campaign. Reserve Neal for now and await a return to his scoring prowess.

Nov 19

2. Sam Bennett
Active

Sam Bennett scored a goal in the Flames' 5-3 loss to Nashville.

Bennett has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He got off to a slow start though and consequently has just two goals and three points in seven games this season.

Oct 20

3. Austin Czarnik
Active

Austin Czarnik might draw into the Flames' lineup on Wednesday.

Czarnik has spent four straight games in the press box. The Flames have won each of those contests, so it's not surprising that Flames coach Bill Peters hasn't wanted to tinker with the lineup. However, Dillon Dube is in the concussion protocol due to a hit he sustained on Saturday, so Peters might have no choice but to make a change. If Dube is indeed unavailable, Czarnik will likely play on the fourth line. "You never want to see anybody get hurt, but it’s something that happens and I’m hoping that if I get in, I can make the most of it," Czarnik said. "It’s a good opportunity for me to try to install myself in the lineup right now. The team is going good right now, and we just need to keep it up."

Nov 7

4. Garnet Hathaway
Active

Garnet Hathaway scored his first two goals of the season Sunday in a 4-1 win over the Rangers.

Hathaway is more known for his feisty ways but that was not the case Sunday as he was a scoring machine (well not necessarily a machine but still he helped his fantasy owners). The fourth liner had only four goals and 13 points last season so he should be in line for some career highs after his start.

Oct 22

D 1. Mark Giordano
Active

Mark Giordano scored a goal and two assists in a 6-5 comeback win over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.

Giordano recorded his second three-point night of the season, his first of the year also saw him score a goal and add two assists. Giordano's third period goal was one of five in the frame as they turned a 4-1 deficit into a 6-5 victory.

Nov 2

2. Noah Hanifin
Active

Noah Hanifin picked up two assists with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Saturday's 4-2 win against the Oilers.

Hanifin has failed to light the lamp across 20 games, but he has seven assists with 21 hits and 26 blocked shots. That's his biggest contribution to the fantasy bottom line for most in deeper pools right now. Hanifin lit the lamp 10 times with 22 assists over 79 games last season with the Carolina Hurricanes, but he has taken a big step back offensively trying to get acclimated in Calgary.

Nov 18

3. T.J. Brodie
Active

T.J. Brodie took part in his 500th career game.

Brodie celebrated the milestone on Tuesday, though it wasn't an ideal outing for that. He took an interference penalty in the second period that Montreal capitalized on en route to a 3-2 victory for the Canadiens. Brodie has four assists and four penalty minutes in eight games this season.

Oct 24

4. Travis Hamonic
Active

Travis Hamonic picked up two assists with a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 4-2 victory against the Oilers.

Hamonic was good for two hits, too, over 20:41 of ice time across 28 shifts. He'll occasionally chip in with some offense, but his real value to those in seasonal fantasy pools and DFS play is his physicality. He has racked up 13 hits with 21 blocked shots with seven penalty minutes through 12 outings.

Nov 18

5. Michael Stone
Active

Michael Stone will not play on Thursday night against the Montreal Canadiens.

This will be the eighth time in Calgary's last nine games that Stone sits. Dalton Prout will also be a scratch.

Nov 15

6. Juuso Valimaki
Active

Juuso Valimaki was called up from the minors on Saturday October 27.

Valimaki was sent down on Thursday when Travis Hamonic was activated from the injured reserve list but was recalled and played 11:33 Saturday and was a minus-one in a shootout loss to Washington. The 16th overall pick in the 2017 Draft has good offensive skills but has only a goal in 10 games this season as he gets used to the flow of the NHL.

Oct 28

7. Dalton Prout
Active

Dalton Prout won't suit up on Monday night against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Prout has appeared in just one game this season. Michael Stone and Austin Czarnik will also sit.

Nov 19

8. Rasmus Andersson
Active

Rasmus Andersson has been in the Flames' lineup for 11 straight games.

Andersson didn't initially make the Flames' opening game roster, but was called up quickly because Travis Hamonic was out with a facial fracture. Andersson has been used somewhat sparingly at just 15:55 minutes per contest, but he's nevertheless managed to stay in the lineup thanks in part to the growth that he's showed this season. "Ras has always been able to make plays," said Flames assistant coach Ryan Huska. "But maybe it looked like he was holding on to it too long, at times, when there were options he had that he was losing because he didn’t move the puck quick enough. I think now he’s figured it out and listened to the feedback. He knows when he sees his options, the puck is on the tape." Andersson does have offensive upside, but he's not relevant in standard fantasy leagues yet. He has an assist in 11 games.

Nov 1

G 1. Mike Smith
Active

Mike Smith made 19 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

Smith has now lost his last three starts for the Flames, allowing eight goals in his last three. Smith's record falls to 5-7-1 with a 3.48 GAA and an .876 save percentage.

Nov 16

2. David Rittich
Active

David Rittich will be in goal for Monday's game against Vegas.

Rittich is being rewarded with another start after helping the Flames defeat Edmonton on Saturday night. He could string together some starts with Mike Smith struggling mightily. Rittich has been very good this season with a 6-1-0 record, a 1.92 goals-against average and .933 save percentage in nine appearances.

Nov 19

C 1. Sebastian Aho
Active

Sebastian Aho scored a goal in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Aho cut Columbus’ lead to 2-1 with a wraparound 6:05 into the second period. Unfortunately for Carolina, they could never get back into the game after giving up a hat trick to Cam Atkinson. It’s Aho’s sixth point in his last four games, bringing him to six goals and 23 points in 19 games this season.

Nov 17

2. Jordan Staal
Active

Jordan Staal found the back of the net in Carolina's 5-3 win over Vancouver Tuesday night.

Staal has three goals and five points in four games this season. He was held off the scoresheet in seven of his first nine contests in 2017-18 and by contrast, he's recorded at least a point in three of four games so far in 2018-19.

Oct 10

3. Victor Rask
I.L.

Victor Rask (hand) is inching his way closer to a possible return.

"He's getting close to being hopefully cleared to work with us pretty soon," coach Rod Brind-Amour said. Rask hasn't played yet this season after he needed surgery on his fourth and fifth fingers of his right hand.

Nov 14

4. Lucas Wallmark
Active

Lucas Wallmark picked up a couple of assists in Thursday’s 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Wallmark started off his night with a secondary assist on Andrei Svechnikov’s opening goal of the season and followed that up with another secondary assist, this time on Jaccob Slavin’s power play marker. The 23-year-old center picked up only one point through the opening 12 games of the season but has four in his last four games. He is not worth a spot on your fantasy roster.

Nov 8

LW 1. Micheal Ferland
Active

Micheal Ferland scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over New Jersey on Sunday.

Justin Williams accounted for the Hurricanes' other marker. Jordan Staal, Brock McGinn, Teuvo Teravainen, and Dougie Hamilton each registered an assist for Carolina.

Nov 18

2. Warren Foegele
Active

Warren Foegele is fitting in nicely on the wing with Jordan Staal and Justin Williams.

The rookie has three goals and an assist in four games this season. "I’m fortunate to have two great linemates that make my job pretty easy," Foegele said. "They tell me what to do and how to improve and it’s been a lot of fun playing with those two. A couple of times I’m like, ‘Wow, this is pretty cool.’" He is likely still on your waiver wire and should be considered in deeper leagues.

Oct 12

3. Jordan Martinook
Active

Jordan Martinook has played well this season on a line with Andrei Svechnikov and Lucas Wallmark.

The trio has served as Carolina's fourth line this season, but they have got into the scoring act. Martinook and Svechnikov both have four goals apiece this campaign. "It's been pretty effective," coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "They've had so many opportunities and they really haven’t been rewarded for how well they've played. The chances they've created and the energy they play with, they've been great."

Nov 17

4. Saku Maenalanen
Active

Saku Maenalanen has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Maenalanen can earn 2,500 in the NHL or ,000 in the minors. He also got a ,500 signing bonus. The 23-year-old forward had 17 goals and 46 points in 59 Liiga games last season with Karpat. "Saku is a big, strong winger who can really skate," said Hurricanes GM Don Waddell. "Our scouting staff has been tracking this player for a long time. He had options when it came to where he would start his NHL career, and we're pleased he has chosen Carolina." He was initially drafted in 2013 by Nashville during the fifth round.

May 18

RW 1. Teuvo Teravainen
Active

Teuvo Teravainen had two assists Saturday.

Teravainen helped set up goals by Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland and has three goals and 14 points in 17 contests. Teravainen had a career-high 64 points last year with Carolina and looks to be on his way to matching or besting that mark this season.

Nov 11

2. Justin Williams
Active

Justin Williams scored his second of the season Sunday in a 2-1 win over New Jersey.

Williams has been picking up assists but has been having trouble finding the back of the net. He scored at the 22 second mark of the first and when Micheal Ferland scored just eight seconds later, the Hurricanes became just the sixth team in NHL history to score twice in the first 30 seconds of the game. Williams has 12 points in 20 games this season and is a depth forward at best in deeper leagues.

Nov 19

3. Andrei Svechnikov
Active

Andrei Svechnikov was forced to leave Monday's game against Chicago, but he did manage to come back.

Svechnikov exited in the third period after he was sent into the boards awkwardly by Blackhawks defender Brent Seabrook. Not only did Svechnikov come back, he also managed to collect an assist on Sebastian Aho's game-winning goal in overtime. The rookie also picked up a helper on Micheal Ferland's power-play marker earlier in the game. The 18-year-old has four goals and four assists in 18 games this season.

Nov 13

4. Brock McGinn
Active

Brock McGinn found the back of the net in Carolina's 4-3 shootout win over San Jose on Friday.

It was McGinn's first point in 10 games this season. He had 16 goals and 30 points in 80 contests in 2017-18. It's worth noting that McGinn's averaging a modest 13:40 minutes this season, down from 14:30 minutes a season prior.

Oct 27

5. Phil Di Giuseppe
Active

Phil Di Giuseppe has been summoned from the minors by Carolina.

Di Giuseppe has appeared in two games with Carolina and two games with Charlotte this campaign. He has sat frequently as a healthy scratch during his time with the Hurricanes.

D 1. Dougie Hamilton
Active

Dougie Hamilton scored his third of the season Saturday.

Hamilton backhanded the puck past Detroit goaltender Jonathan Bernier to give the Hurricanes a 3-1 lead in the second stanza but Carolina could not hold on as they gave up a pair of third period goals and then lost in a shootout. Hamilton has six points this season in 17 games as he is not even close to averaging 40 points this season, a mark that the defenseman has hit in each of his last four seasons. Hamilton should go on a hot streak soon as he is one of the better offensive defensemen in the NHL.

Justin Faulk scored a goal in Monday's 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Faulk's power-play goal in the first period gave the 'Canes a 1-0 lead at the time, and they never looked back. The goal also allowed Faulk to move past Glen Wesley into second all-time in points by a defenseman with 228. Only Dave Babych has more points (he accumulated 240 with the Hartford Whalers). Faulk has one goal and five points in nine games this season.

Calvin de Haan hopes to get Carolina over the hump and back into the playoffs.

"I like the direction the team is going," said de Haan. "The Hurricanes, during my time in the NHL, I think they've underachieved. I want to be part of the solution to get this team into the playoffs. I'm actually pretty pumped. I'm very excited to be here. This team is good." The Hurricanes have missed the playoffs for nine straight seasons, but he likes the team's defense corps and that was a big part of him signing with the club after spending his first five NHL seasons with the New York Islanders.

Jaccob Slavin scored his second of the season Thursday.

G 1. Scott Darling
Active

Scott Darling allowed four goals on 24 shots in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It was a tough night for Darling who gave up a hat trick and four-point night to Cam Atkinson in this one. The 29-year-old goaltender will see his record fall to 2-3-1 with a 2.99 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage. Expect to see Curtis McElhinney in tomorrow night when the Hurricanes host the Devils.

2. Petr Mrazek
Sidelined

Petr Mrazek (lower body) is making progress.

"He's been feeling better," coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "... He hasn't been out there with us yet, but from what I hear, everything is getting real close." Carolina should have a better idea of when he can return once he gets back on the ice.

Nov 14

3. Curtis McElhinney
Active

Curtis McElhinney saved 33 of 34 shots in a 2-1 win against New Jersey on Sunday.

C 1. Jonathan Toews
Active

Jonathan Toews scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Toews' power-play goal at the 8:26 mark of the first period gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead at the time. The 30-year-old also registered the primary assist on Dominik Kahun's empty-net goal in the final minute of regulation. Toews finished the night with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and one shot on goal in 19:39 of ice time. The Blackhawks captain now has 10 goals and seven assists in 21 games this season. He's also riding a four-game point streak.

2. Nick Schmaltz
Active

The Blackhawks need more from Nick Schmaltz, who was a healthy scratch on Thursday night.

"Performance-based. Expectations," coach Joel Quenneville said. "I just think we need him to be an important player for us." Schmaltz has one assist in his last five games and he logged 14 minutes or less in his past three appearances.

Nov 2

3. Artem Anisimov
Active

Artem Anisimov is projected to be Chicago's second-line center on Tuesday night based on the morning skate.

Anisimov was between Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad during the session. The change bumped Nick Schmaltz to the third line.

Kampf has been scratched for the last three matches. He has one goal and one assist in eight games this year.

4. Andreas Martinsen
Active

Andreas Martinsen will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday when the Blackhawks visit the Canucks.

Chicago is kicking off a road trip in Vancouver, but Martinsen will not be on the ice. He dressed in that last game against the Oilers, skating for 9:07 with virtually no impact, earning zeros across the board.

Oct 31

5. Alexandre Fortin
Active

Alexandre Fortin will be a healthy scratch when the Chicago Blackhawks host the St. Louis Blues.

Fortin will miss his first game this season, to which he's averaging 11:02 in time on ice with two goals and four points. Joining him in the press box will be defenseman Jan Rutta. He had dressed in four straight after a three game stint in the press box, scoring once and adding an assist.

RW 1. Patrick Kane
Active

Patrick Kane will celebrate his 30th birthday on Monday.

"It’s pretty crazy how time flies," he said. "But I think 30 is still fairly young, especially in today’s game. You see a lot of players in today’s game play into their 40s, as well, so just try to maintain what I’ve got going right now and keep it going as long as I can. But I still feel fairly young. . . . I still feel like I’ve got a lot of hockey left." We'll see if Kane still feels that way about playing into his 40s a decade from now, but there's no question that he's still got plenty of hockey in him. He's just as good as he's ever been with 12 goals and 19 points in 23 games.

Active

Alex DeBrincat scored a goal in Monday's 3-2 OT loss to Carolina.

DeBrincat gave Chicago a 2-0 lead at the 10:49 mark of the second period, but the Hurricanes scored two power-play goals to even score before the start of the third. DeBrincat was on a newly-formed third line with Dominik Kahun and David Kampf, who both picked up assists on the play.

Dominik Kahun found the back of the net in Sunday's 3-1 win over Minnesota.

Active

Duncan Keith is set to play in his 1,000th NHL game Saturday against the Blues.

The 35-year-old defenseman has played his entire 17-year career with the Blackhawks and will be honored in a pre-game ceremony Saturday night. Many thought Keith to be washed up after just scoring two goals and registering 32 points last season, but the veteran blueliner seems to be rebounding nicely and could get back to the 40-point mark this season.

Oct 13

2. Brent Seabrook
Active

Brent Seabrook found the back of the net during Wednesday's 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Seabrook got credit for the goal, but Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was the one who kicked the puck into his own net. The Hawks defender finished the night with two shots on goal, one hit and three blocked shots in 22:12 of ice time. The 33-year-old has three goals and 10 points in 19 games this season. Seabrook struggles to keep up with opponents at this stage of his career, but he's off to a nice start offensively. The victory was new head coach Jeremy Colliton's first behind an NHL bench and it allowed the Blackhawks to put an end to their eight-game losing skid.

Nov 14

3. Jan Rutta
Active

Jan Rutta scored his first goal of the season on Saturday night.

Rutta gave the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead after the first period and Brandon Saad made it 3-1 in the second, but then Calgary took over with four unanswered goals to claim a 5-3 victory over Chicago. For Rutta, it was his fourth point in 12 appearances this year.

Nov 4

4. Erik Gustafsson
Active

Erik Gustafsson has been chipping in offensively for the Blackhawks this season.

Gustafsson has a goal and five points in nine games this season. He's also been rock-solid defensively, which has been huge for the 'Hawks. "His camp this year had real purpose," coach Joel Quenneville said. "It looked like his approach this year and how he prepared for the season was real professional. I think he wanted to absorb more responsibility to our team game and enhance the opportunity to play more." If he keeps this up, he'll have value in standard fantasy leagues.

5. Brandon Manning
Active

Brandon Manning is not expected to suit up on Monday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Manning has two points in 14 games and holds no fantasy value. Brandon Saad (arm), Marcus Kruger (left leg) and Connor Murphy (back) will also miss the game.

Henrik Jokiharju (illness) will be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Nov 16

8. Connor Murphy

Connor Murphy (back) is still "weeks" away, according to coach Jeremy Colliton.

Murphy was on the ice for a skate Saturday after the team's practice. He hasn't played yet this season because of a back injury.

Corey Crawford has been selected as the second star of the week.

Crawford posted a 2-0-1 record with a 0.65 goals-against average, a .980 save percentage and one shutout during the period ending Nov. 18. He has gone 5-6-1 this campaign with a 2.44 goals-against average and .922 save percentage in 12 appearances since returning on Dec. 23 from a concussion.

Nov 19

2. Cam Ward
Active

Cam Ward allowed three goals on 40 shots during Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Ward's former team got the better of him tonight. The Blackhawks were up 2-0 in the second period, but they allowed the 'Canes to score back-to-back power-play goals in the middle frame. In overtime, it was Sebastian Aho that beat Ward. The 'Hawks goaltender owns a 3-2-3 record with a 3.49 goals-against-average and a .887 save percentage this season. Ward doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy format.

C 1. Pierre-Luc Dubois
Active

Pierre-Luc Dubois had two assists Saturday.

It was a big night for the Blue Jackets top line as they had nine points including Cam Atkinson's hat trick plus an assist while Artemi Panarin had three assists. Dubois has nine goals and 17 points in 20 games as well as 30 penalty minutes. He is a fantasy asset in all leagues at this time.

Nov 18

2. Nick Foligno
Active

Nick Foligno (personal) is expected to be back in the lineup on Monday night.

Foligno was back on the second line alongside Boone Jenner and Josh Anderson at the morning skate. He missed Saturday's game because his daughter was in the hospital. His 5-year-old was born with a congenital heart defect, but she is feeling better. We hope she has a speedy recovery.

Nov 19

3. Riley Nash
Active

Riley Nash (illness) is projected to get back in the lineup on Saturday night.

Nash didn't play on Thursday because of an illness, but he got back on the ice Friday for practice. Look for him to play on the fourth line against Carolina.

Nov 17

4. Alexander Wennberg
Active

Alexander Wennberg bounced back on Tuesday after underwhelming in his first two games of 2018-19.

Wennberg began the season with no points and a minus-one rating. After that, he reviewed game footage with two assistant coaches. "He played better," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said, referring to Tuesday's performance. "Obviously, he made some really good plays. He’s still not to the standard that I think he should be at, but I think he was trying to make a difference." Wennberg had two assists Tuesday night.

Oct 10

5. Brandon Dubinsky
Active

Brandon Dubinsky registered an assist in a 4-1 win over Dallas Tuesday night.

Although Dubinsky has missed most of the season so far with a torn oblique, when he has been in the lineup, he's been effective. He's scored a goal and four points in five contests so far. He was limited to 16 points in 62 contests last season, but he has a real shot of bouncing back in 2018-19 if he stays healthy.

Nov 7

LW 1. Artemi Panarin
Active

Artemi Panarin had three assists Saturday night in a 4-1 win over Carolina.

The Blue Jackets top forward was back to his old form after missing Thursday's game with an illness. He has five goals and 21 points in 19 games. Panarin had been slumping of late with no points in four games but now has assists in four of his last five games. He has not found the back of the net since October 27, a span of nine games. Nevertheless, Panarin is a must-start.

Nov 18

2. Boone Jenner
Active

Boone Jenner is on a three-game point streak.

Jenner kept that run going with an assist on Tuesday. He's up to three goals and six points in 15 games this season. Though Jenner had 30 goals in 2015-16, it's better to think of him as a 30-40 point player.

Nov 7

3. Markus Hannikainen
Active

Markus Hannikainen scored the game-winning goal in Columbus' 7-3 win over Florida on Thursday.

It was Hannikainen's first goal and third point in 11 games this season. It was also his first game-winner in 58 career contests.

Nov 16

4. Lukas Sedlak
Active

Lukas Sedlak will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the New York Rangers.

Sedlak played just under nine minutes in last night's game against the Capitals, but he's coming out of the lineup because Cam Atkinson (illness) is ready to make his return. Sedlak has one assist in 12 games this season. Adam Clendening and Dean Kukan are also expected to watch from the press box.

Nov 10

RW 1. Cam Atkinson
Active

Cam Atkinson scored a goal and assisted on another in Monday’s 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Atkinson took a feed from Pierre-Luc Dubois, absolutely ripping one in behind Frederik Andersen to open the scoring. The duo then combined again, this time with Atkinson providing the assist on Dubois’ 10th goal of the season. The 29-year-old Atkinson has remarkably scored seven goals in his last five games, giving him 13 goals and 22 points in 20 games this season.

Nov 19

2. Josh Anderson
Active

Josh Anderson had a very strong game against the Rangers Saturday.

Anderson was held pointless but he had seven hits and three shots on goal as he played against the Rangers top line of Mika Zibanejad, Pavel Buchnevich and Vladislav Namestnikov for the most part. The Blue Jackets had 83.33 percent of all shot attempts as well as 75 percent of all dangerous scoring chances when Anderson was on the ice. He has seven goals and nine points this season with a plus-10 rating.

Nov 11

3. Anthony Duclair
Active

Anthony Duclair started Thursday's game on the third line, but was bumped up to the top line by the end of the contest.

Duclair had a goal and an assist in 15 minutes of ice time. He has eight goals and 12 points in 19 contests, which is impressive, but his defensive play has landed him in Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella's doghouse at times.

Nov 16

Active

Oliver Borkstrand will not play on Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The offensively gifted winger has failed to pick up a point in his last four games. This will be the second time he sits this season.

D 1. Seth Jones
Active

Seth Jones had three assists in Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Rangers.

Jones started off his night with the secondary assist on Cam Atkinson’s power play goal before appearing to get a goal of his own, only for it to be given to Pierre-Luc Dubois after it was deemed that the forward tipped it. Jones then capped off his night with the primary assist on Alex Wennberg’s shorthanded goal. After missed the opening seven games of the season due to a knee injury, Jones finds himself at eight points in 10 games.

Nov 10

2. Zach Werenski
Active

Zach Werenski only logged 14:27 minutes of ice time on Monday.

Werenski was also limited to 13:21 minutes on Nov. 9. This all followed the Blue Jackets' decision to move Werenski from the top pairing to the third. It's part of coach John Tortorella's continued efforts to hold all players accountable and hopefully Werenski will get out of the doghouse soon. There's a chance though that before that happens, Werenski might even end up as a healthy scratch.

Nov 15

3. David Savard
Active

With Seth Jones back in the lineup, David Savard's playing time tanked on Tuesday.

Savard had been filling in for Jones on the top pairing with Zach Werenski. In that role, Savard logged an average of 24:01 minutes in seven games. With Jones back on Tuesday though, Savard played alongside Dean Kukan and was on the ice for just 17:34 minutes.

Oct 24

4. Ryan Murray
Active

Ryan Murray had a pair of assists Thursday.

Murray had only 12 points last season after 11 points the year before as he has been injury-prone, playing 106 games over the last two campaigns. He is up to five helpers in nine games this season so perhaps his offensive game is returning. We wouldn't pick him up just yet but keep an eye on him.

Oct 26

5. Markus Nutivaara
Active

Markus Nutivaara and Ryan Murray have played well together so far this season.

"That’s a pair I think we’ve settled right now," Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella said after Monday’s practice. "Another week from now, we could be saying, ‘What the (heck) are they doing?’ The game changes every day and players change their play every day. It’s our job to try to keep them consistent." Neither player is a huge point producer, but they seem to have some nice chemistry together.

Oct 16

Scott Harrington will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday versus Dallas.

The Blue Jackets will play Dean Kukan instead. Harrington hasn't seen much ice time in the last two games. He has four assists in 14 appearances this season.

Active

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 25 shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Blue Jackets came out flying, finishing the first period up 2-0. The Leafs were then able to get back into the game with a pair of goals in the second before icing it late in the third period. Bobrovsky will see his four-game winning streak come to an end. His record now stands at 7-7-0 with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Joonas Korpisalo
Active

Joonas Korpisalo gave up three goals on 43 shots in Thursday’s 7-3 win over the Florida Panthers.

It was a rough start to the game for Korpisalo who gave up two goals in the opening 6:45 of the contest. He settled down after, making enough saves to allow his teammates to jump out to a 3-2 lead before pulling away in the third. Columbus’ backup will see his record improve to 5-0-2 with a 3.68 goals-against-average and a .885 save percentage.

Nov 15

C 1. Nathan MacKinnon

Nathan MacKinnon notched one goal and two assists in Sunday's 4-3 OT win over Anaheim.

MacKinnon was credited with seven shots in the contest and he logged a season-high 25:43 of ice time. He is up to 13 goals and 29 points in 20 games this campaign. The only player with more points than MacKinnon at this time is linemate Mikko Rantanen.

Nov 19

Alexander Kerfoot netted a power-play goal on Sunday night in a 4-1 win against Edmonton.

Kerfoot has contributed five points on the man advantage this season, but this was his first goal. He has scored two of his three goals in the last four games and he has collected six points in his past five appearances. Kerfoot has 12 points through 17 contests in 2018-19.

Nov 12

3. Carl Soderberg
Active

Carl Soderberg opened the scoring with his seventh goal of the season in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss against the Washington Capitals.

Soderberg has tired a season best with points in four straight games, posting two goals with three assists. He also had a four-game run to open the regular season from Oct. 4-11. The Swedish pivot will look to make it a season-best five-game run with a point when he and his teammates travel to Anaheim on Sunday evening.

Nov 17

4. Vladislav Kamenev
Active

Vladislav Kamenev scored his first NHL goal in Thursday's 6-5 loss to Calgary.

Nov 2

LW 1. Gabriel Landeskog
Active

Gabriel Landeskog produced one goal and one assist in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win versus Anaheim.

Landeskog's 13th goal of the season tied the game at 3-3 at the 11:20 mark of the third period and he assisted on Mikko Rantanen's power-play winner during the extra session. He has 22 points in 20 matches this season. Landeskog has been great alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen, who are the top-two point producers in the league.

Matt Nieto (lower body) will miss Sunday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Active

Tyson Jost scored a goal in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Boston Bruins.

The Avalanche were down 3-1 in the second period, but they managed to close the game out with five unanswered goals. Jost's power-play tally gave his team a 5-3 lead less than five minutes remaining in the game. The 20-year-old has now scored twice in three games since returning from head injury. He has three goals and four points in 14 games this season.

Nov 15

4. Matt Calvert
Active

Matt Calvert found the back of the net during Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Boston Bruins.

Calvert's goal at the 2:11 mark of the third period tied the game up at three. Teammate Nathan MacKinnon eventually scored the game-winner less than seven minutes later. Calvert has two goals and three assists in 18 games this season. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.

Nov 15

5. Sheldon Dries
Active

Sheldon Dries notched one goal and one assist in Thursday's 6-5 loss to Calgary.

Dries got his first NHL goal and first NHL assist during the second period when Colorado built a 4-1 lead. He didn't have a point in his first four games with the Avalanche and was recalled from the minors earlier this week.

Nov 2

RW 1. Mikko Rantanen
Active

Mikko Rantanen scored a goal and two assists during Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The Avalanche were down 3-1 late in the second period, but that's when their top players went to work. Rantanen registered helpers on goals by Nathan MacKinnon (3-2) and Gabriel Landeskog (3-3). The 22-year-old then scored the game-winner with less than two seconds remaining in the overtime period. Rantanen finished the game with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and one hit in 24:13 of ice time. He's been flat-out dominant this season, as he's already up to eight goals and an incredible 32 points in just 20 games in 2018-19.

Marko Dano will be a healthy scratch Wednesday night when the Avalanche host the Bruins.

Tonight's game will mark the second straight scratch and the third in five games. Even when he is in the lineup, his season high time on ice is 9:23, breaking the seven minute mark only twice. Joining him in the press box will be defenseman Patrik Nemeth, his first scratch after dressing in four games.

Nov 14

Colin Wilson will miss Sunday's game against Anaheim because of a lower-body injury.

Wilson has five goals and three assists in 19 games this season. He's considered day-to-day for now.

Nov 18

6. Gabriel Bourque

Gabriel Bourque got back in the lineup on Saturday night.

Bourque was a healthy scratch on Friday, but a head injury to Tyson Jost got him back into the fold. He logged just 9:50 in Colorado's 3-2 loss to Minnesota.

Oct 28

D 1. Tyson Barrie
Active

Tyson Barrie produced one goal and one assist in Sunday's 4-1 win versus Edmonton.

It was Barrie's first goal in 17 games this season, but he has compiled 13 helpers during that time. Barrie scored a career-high 14 goals last season, so he has plenty of work to do to get back to that pace.

Nov 12

2. Erik Johnson
Active

Erik Johnson picked up three assists with a plus-3 rating and seven shots on goal in 22:21 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 victory against the Flyers.

Johnson had his 2017-18 season prematurely ended by a fractured patella, so he is looking for a bounce back. It seems like Johnson has been around forever, but he is still just 30 years old. He hasn't had a double-digit goal total since the 2015-16 season, and he hasn't been over 27 points since 2013-14. Still, if you like plenty of hits, blocked shots and occasional penalty minutes with a handful of points, Johnson is your guy.

Oct 7

3. Samuel Girard
Active

Samuel Girard was able to put on 15 pounds of muscle this offseason.

Girard is a smaller defenseman, so the fact that he was able to add some "good weight" over the summer. The 20-year-old had three goals and 20 points in 68 games last season. He'll be counted upon to move the puck quite a bit this season. He probably won't have any fantasy value in standard leagues, but he'll be a key contributor in Colorado.

Oct 4

Patrik Nemeth will be a healthy scratch on Thursday night against the Calgary Flames.

Nemeth has one point in nine games this season. He'll be joined in the press box by A.J. Greer.

Ian Cole was ejected from Thursday's game against Calgary.

Cole received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for charging Mark Jankowski late in the second period. He also had to fight Sam Bennett after the hit. "He's been our best defender, besides our goaltending," said coach Jared Bednar. "It was a good hit, a clean hit. That's not the reason we lost, but missing Ian in the third period was a big factor." Cole had one assist and a plus-3 rating in 13:14 of ice time prior to his exit.

Mark Barberio will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Conor Timmins (head) is doing better and he is back in Denver.

Timmins went home to Ontario for a week or so for some rest because his recovery was not progressing. It's unclear when he will be available to play.

G 1. Semyon Varlamov
Active

Semyon Varlamov allowed three goals on 23 shots in a 6-3 win against the Bruins on Wednesday night.

The Avalanche opened the scoring in the first period thanks to the work of Landeskog and Rantanen, however the Bruins managed to reply with three consecutive goals within a seven-minute span between the first and second periods. Luckily for Varlamov, his team buckled down and managed to score five unanswered goals to earn the win. The 30-year old netminder now sports a 6-5-2 record with a 2.32 GAA and a .926 save percentage in 2018-19.

2. Philipp Grubauer
Active

Philipp Grubauer turned aside 30 of 33 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks.

Grubauer gave up three goals in the first 24:34 of the game, but he was perfect the rest of the way. The Avalanche found themselves down 3-1 late in the second period before Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen (overtime) all scored to complete the comeback. Grubauer now has a 4-1-2 record with a 3.36 goals-against-average and a .896 save percentage this season. He's made back-to-back starts for the Avs, but Semyon Varlamov will get his share of starts, too.

Active

Tyler Seguin scored a goal in Monday’s 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

Jamie Benn set up a beautiful screen in front of Henrik Lundqvist that Seguin took advantage of to open the scoring 2:17 into the second period. It’s Seguin’s seventh goal of the season, bringing him to 21 points in as many games.

Nov 19

2. Jason Spezza
Active

Jason Spezza scored a goal and picked up an assist in Saturday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Washington Capitals.

Gemel Smith had an active stick to force a turnover that led to a Spezza breakaway that the latter converted with a quick snapshot for his third goal of the season. The veteran center then followed that up with the secondary assist on Jamie Benn’s second period goal. The two points break a three-game pointless streak for Spezza, bringing him to 10 points in 13 games. It’s a nice bounce back season for the 35-year-old center after he had just 26 points last season. Tyler Pitlick and Jason Dickinson (overtime winner) also scored in the win.

Nov 3

3. Radek Faksa
Active

Radek Faksa scored a shorthanded goal in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins.

Faksa came skating down the left wing with the puck, firing off a weak shot from the boards that somehow beat Tuukka Rask for his third goal of the year. The Stars couldn't muster up anything else the rest of the way, eventually losing in overtime. Faksa is up to five points in 14 games.

Nov 5

4. Gemel Smith
Active

Gemel Smith won't suit up on Monday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The 24-year-old has two goals and three points in 10 games this season. He'll be making way for the return of Brett Ritchie from an upper-body injury.

Nov 12

5. Martin Hanzal
I.L.

Martin Hanzal (back) could be available by the end of the month.

"I think a realistic goal would be towards the end of November," coach Jim Montgomery said. "And that would be a real positive outcome. I think somewhere around Dec. 4 to Dec. 10 is very plausible." Hanzal still appears to be on track from spinal fusion back surgery in March.

Nov 14

LW 1. Jamie Benn
Active

Jamie Benn contributed three helpers in a 6-2 win against the New York Islanders on Sunday.

Dallas got plenty of offense from the top line in the win with Benn, Tyler Seguin and Alexander Radulov combining for three goals and six assists. The Stars captain has 17 points in 20 appearances this year.

Nov 19

2. Mattias Janmark
Active

Mattias Janmark is slated to play alongside Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza on Tuesday night versus Montreal.

Janmark has contributed one goal and no assists through 10 games this season. Benn has been ice cold offensively over the last six matches, while Spezza has been playing well.

Oct 30

3. Blake Comeau
Active

Blake Comeau will be back on the fourth line on Tuesday night.

Comeau got to spend some time with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin over the last two games, but Alexander Radulov will return to the top unit against New Jersey.

5. Jason Dickinson
Active

Jason Dickinson scored the only goal during Friday's 1-0 overtime win over the Boston Bruins.

After 60 minutes of goal-less hockey, Dickinson finally managed to find the back of the net when he buried a rebound past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask at the 1:34 mark of overtime. Mattias Janmark picked up the assist on Dallas' only goal. Dickinson has four goals and three assists in 17 games this season. He doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy format.

Nov 16

RW 1. Alexander Radulov

Alexander Radulov scored two goals and registered an assist in a 6-2 win against the Islanders.

Tyler Seguin found the back of the net and registered two assists. Esa Lindell scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner. Jamie Benn assisted on three of the Islanders' six goals. Jason Spezza registered two assists for Dallas. Roope Hintz scored his first NHL goal.

Nov 18

2. Valeri Nichushkin
Active

Valeri Nichushkin is projected to play with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn on Tuesday night.

Dallas has been shuffling forward combinations a great deal of late, but this is a great opportunity for Nichushkin. He has recorded just two assists in nine contests this season.

3. Brett Ritchie
Active

Brett Ritchie will be a healthy scratch Monday night versus the New York Rangers.

Ritchie was in the press box for Sunday's match against the Islanders as well after he played just 9:36 of ice time on Friday versus Boston. He only has one assist in 13 matches this year.

Nov 19

4. Devin Shore
Sidelined

Devin Shore (lower body) is expected to miss one-to-two weeks.

Shore was originally slated to be out for seven to 10 days, so his timetable hasn't changed much following his MRI on Tuesday. Coach Jim Montgomery still anticipates Shore being out for about 10 days.

Nov 14

5. Tyler Pitlick

Tyler Pitlick (illness) will be back in the lineup on Monday night.

Pitlick was not able to play on Sunday because of an illness. He is slated to play with Radek Faksa and Blake Comeau on the third line against the New York Rangers.

Nov 19

D 1. John Klingberg
I.L.

John Klingberg (hand) will be out for a minimum of five weeks.

It sounds like we shouldn't count on Klingberg being back in five weeks though. Stars coach Jim Montgomery said that if he was offered today a guarantee that Klingberg would miss six weeks, he'd "take the deal right now." Klingberg is a huge part of the Stars' defense, so this is naturally a major blow.

Nov 16

2. Esa Lindell
Active

Esa Lindell netted a pair of goals in Sunday's 6-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Lindell has been urged by the Dallas coaching staff to shoot the puck more often and he was credited with five shots on Sunday. He has recorded eight points in 20 games this season.

Nov 19

3. Miro Heiskanen
Active

Miro Heiskanen will take John Klingberg's place anchoring the Stars' first power-play unit.

Klingberg will be out of action for at least a month following hand surgery, so Heiskanen will get the chance to play the point on the first power play alongside talented players such as Tyler Sequin, Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza. The gifted rookie, who was just coming into his own with three points in his last three games, is now a must add in all hockey pool formats.

Nov 10

4. Stephen Johns
I.L.

Stephen Johns (head) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Detroit.

Johns hasn't played yet this season. The good news is that Johns is traveling with the Stars, so he might return at some point during Dallas' upcoming six-game road trip.

Oct 27

5. Marc Methot
I.L.

Marc Methot (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to Nov. 1, so the Stars can activate Methot whenever he is healthy. That being said, he's not expected to resume skating for another few days.

Nov 15

6. Joel Hanley
Active

Joel Hanley will be in the Stars' lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against Nashville.

With injuries to Dallas rearguards Marc Methot (lower body), Connor Carrick (foot), and Stephen Johns (concussion), the 27-year-old journeyman will get his chance to dress. Hanley was playing well in the AHL before his recall with five points in 11 games. That said, we do not regard him as a fantasy target at this time.

Nov 10

7. Julius Honka
Active

Julius Honka will suit up Saturday night against Calgary.

Honka has not played in any of the Stars' three games to date. Although we think Honka is worthy of playing in the NHL, we don't see him as a fantasy asset.

Oct 13

8. Connor Carrick
I.L.

Connor Carrick (foot) will be sidelined for at least two more weeks.

Coach Jim Montgomery said a hairline fracture was discovered from the shot Carrick took his foot/ankle on Oct. 28 against Detroit.

Ben Bishop (lower body) will not return to Monday's game against the New York Rangers.

It's unclear when he was injured during the game, but Anton Khudobin is in goal for the start of the third period.

Nov 19

2. Anton Khudobin
Active

Anton Khudobin gave up one goal on 10 shots in Monday’s 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

Ben Bishop got the start but Khudobin was forced into action to start the third after Bishop was forced to leave the game due to a lower-body injury. Khudobin gave up the only goal of the third period, getting beat by a nice wrister from Filip Cytil. He’ll see his record fall to 3-3-1 with a 2.37 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage. If Bishop is sidelined for an extended period, that would give Dallas’ backup some interesting fantasy appeal.

Nov 19

C 1. Dylan Larkin
Active

Dylan Larkin has amassed 12 points in the past 10 games.

Larkin has four goals during that span, including two game-winners. Coach Jeff Blashill knows Larkin wants to be difference marker each night and he has played the 22-year-old center in all situations this campaign. "When you get an 'A' on your chest it gives you a little more latitude to speak and those types of things, and I think he's done a good job of it, but he's a natural-born leader," Blashill said.

LW 1. Anthony Mantha
Active

Coach Jeff Blashill likes what he has seen from Anthony Mantha of late.

"Since Dallas (Oct. 28) he's played very well throughout that stretch and hasn't gotten rewarded with points," Blashill said. "I don't think you can judge points in the short term. If he plays the way he's played over the last number of games he'll get rewarded and he'll get goals, assists, points. He just has to keep skating. He's done a real good of it overall. He's a real good player the last number of games, he just has to keep going." The production he was waiting for finally came on Saturday when Manthan scored twice in a shootout win over Carolina. Hopefully, this will be the spark that gets him going.

Tyler Bertuzzi earned two assists in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over New Jersey.

Luke Glendening scored a goal during Thursday’s 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Glendening took advantage of a mad scramble in front of Andrei Vasilevskiy to poke home his first goal of the season. The Red Wings dominated the second period, outshooting the Lightning 16-6 but exchanging one goal apiece, coming out on the losing end by going into the third period down a goal. The Red Wings continue to struggle to start the year, failing to pick up a win so far.

Monday morning the kids, Lisa and I flew out to Denver, Colorado to visit Johan," Cissi wrote on Franzenresidence.com. "He's been going thru an intensive treatment program at Marcus Brain Health Institute, and this last week was a family week where I joined in for a lot of sessions. He's still dealing with post-concussion syndrome, and the last months have been really bad. Something needed to happen and I'm so thankful we found this new amazing place. It opened up in March and they treat veterans and athletes with brain traumas. Johan was actually their very first athlete." She went on to say that Franzen continues to have good and bad days, but they are hopeful for the future because he has shown improvement. He has not played a game since October 2015.

Following that up with another secondary assist (Michael Rasmussen) before scoring a goal of his own midway through the final period to give the Red Wings a 6-0 lead. It was the 33-year-old’s first goal of the season, bringing him up to seven points in nine games this season. Dennis Cholowski, Luke Glendening and Andreas Athanasiou also scored in the blowout win.

Danny DeKeyser scored a goal in Saturday’s 4-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

DeKeyser got a point shot through traffic that found its way into the back of the net after taking a bounce off the boards and Mikko Koskinen’s back for the goal.

Niklas Kronwall will make his regular-season debut on Thursday night against Toronto.

Kronwall missed the first three games of the season because of a lower-body injury, but he's healthy enough to suit up now. "It came kind of nowhere," said Kronwall of the injury. "It’s a little frustrating at the time but you try to find a way through it and get back to work. It feels good, and I hope to be back in again." The fact that Kronwall's first game is against the high-flying Toronto Maple Leafs probably doesn't bode well for his chances of having a strong night. The veteran has no fantasy value.

Nick Jensen scored a pair of goals in a 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Jensen opened the scoring at the 12:42 mark of the first period and later added his second goal of the game midway through the third period to make it a 3-2 Toronto game. The goals were his first two points of 2018-19. Last season, the 28-year old defenseman recorded 15 assists in 81 games. Dylan Larkin also scored for Detroit in the loss.

Dennis Cholowski will be paired with Mike Green on Friday.

Green is making his season debut after missing the start of the season due to a virus. This is a nice opportunity for Cholowski, who is 20-years-old. "It's great. He was one of my favorite defensemen growing up, always loved him and loved the way he skated and ran the power play and everything," Cholowski said. "I tried to emulate a lot of what he did and now I get to play with him so it's pretty cool for sure." Cholowski has two goals and five points in seven games this season.

Jonathan Bernier stopped 38 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over New Jersey on Saturday afternoon.

Bernier surrendered the first two goals of the game, but he gave his teammates a chance to mount a comeback by shutting the door the rest of the way. He was especially good in the third period when he stopped all 14 shots he faced. Bernier will lift his record this season to 3-3-0 on the year.

Nov 17

C 1. Connor McDavid
Active

Connor McDavid picked up three assists with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and a hit over 20:27 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-2 win against the Canadiens.

McDavid was reunited with Leon Draisaitl on the team's top scoring line, and head coach Todd McLellan added Drake Caggiula to the mix. They finished with two goals, five assists and a plus-7 rating, so you can expect the line to be together for the immediate future. It appears McLellan has dialed up the right combination, although most mixes involving McDavid are going to work in some capacity.

Nov 14

2. Leon Draisaitl
Active

Leon Draisaitl picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Draisaitl picked up the primary assist on Alex Chiasson's go-ahead goal (2-1) late in the first period. He also added a goal of his own early in the third period to cut his team's deficit to 6-3. Draisaitl finished the night with a minus-1 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in 21:18 of ice time. The 23-year-old has had a nice week, as he's collected six points in just three contests. Draisaitl is up to 12 goals and 23 points in 20 games this season. That puts him on pace for an impressive 49 goals and 94 points.

Kyle Brodziak returned to action on Sunday after missing one game with an illness.

It was not a great return for Brodziak who played 13:53 and won only two-of-10 faceoffs while going minus-one on the night. He also had a pair of hits in the 6-3 loss to Vegas. Brodziak has two goals and is a minus-seven in 18 games this season.

Milan Lucic saw only 10:36 of action Thursday.

The forward scored on opening night and has yet to find the back of the net since. He has four points in 16 games with a minus-seven rating but does have 30 penalty minutes. He should not be in your lineup in most pools at this time.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Ryan Spooner from the New York Rangers in exchange for Ryan Strome.

6. Drake Caggiula
Active

Drake Caggiula picked up his sixth goal of the season in Tuesday's 6-2 victory against the Montreal Canadiens.

Caggiula worked with Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid on the team's top scoring line, although it was Alex Chiasson and Matthew Benning setting up Caggiula's goal early in the second period. Head coach Todd McLellan has been impressed lately by the play of Caggiula, so it's likely he remains a top-six forward with some decent short-term fantasy viability as long as he can stick and produce.

Nov 14

Active

Oscar Klefbom is playing a lot better this season after an awful 2017-18 campaign.

While Klefbom is still struggling when the Oilers are on the power play, he has been stellar in five-on-five situations and is completely healthy this season. Klefbom last season gave up 3.06 goals per 60 minutes in 5v5 situations as he was 202 out of 212 defensemen in the category but thus far this season he is at 1.09 per 60 minutes in 5v5 which is 12th best among the 197 defensemen in the NHL. That is a huge improvement and a major reason the Oilers are much improved this season. He has six assists in 13 games but is a plus-eight thus far.

Nov 4

2. Adam Larsson
Active

Adam Larsson was in a full face shield Sunday after getting hit in the mouth with the puck in a win over Nashville Saturday.

Larsson's lip was cut in half and he needed plenty of stitches to close the gash. "Adam is a tough guy," said defense partner Oscar Klefbom. "Believe it or not he’s a tough Swede." Larsson has little fantasy value with only three assists in 10 games but he is a solid blueliner who plays plenty of minutes.

Oct 29

Active

Darnell Nurse has signed a two-year, .4 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

Nurse was a restricted free agent and missed the start of training camp as a result of the contract negotiations. That's all in the past though and what little time he missed isn't likely to have an impact once the regular season starts. He'll could take a moderate step forward offensively this season after finishing 2017-18 with 26 points.

Active

Kris Russell went scoreless with a hit and seven blocked shots in his 16:26 of ice time in Saturday's 4-2 loss at Calgary.

Russell has managed just one goal with six points and a plus-1 rating through 19 games. However, if your fantasy pool uses hits (18) and blocked shots (59) then Russell is your man. The veteran rearguard ranks second only behind Colorado's Ian Cole (60) in blocked shots. He is particularly attractive in DFS for his work in the blocked shots category.

Matthew Benning registered an assist and scored his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign on Tuesday.

"Last few games, I’ve had good looks and probably the worst of my shots goes in. It is what it is," said Benning of the goal. He also logged 18:42 minutes, which was his second highest total of the 2018-19 campaign. He had been moved up to the second pairing with Darnell Nurse.

G 1. Cam Talbot
Active

Cam Talbot allowed six goals on 31 shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Oilers had a 2-1 lead heading into the second period, but the Golden Knights scored the next five goals. Despite Connor McDavid's best efforts, Edmonton is off to another mediocre start this year. The fact that the Oilers are bad means that Talbot's fantasy value will take a hit. The 31-year-old has a 5-8-1 record with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .888 save percentage this season. He's more of a number two goalie in standard fantasy leagues.

Nov 18

2. Mikko Koskinen
Active

Mikko Koskinen allowed three goals on 36 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss at Calgary.

Koskinen was making his second consecutive start, but this didn't go as well as Thursday's 6-2 win against Montreal. He has been impressive with Cam Talbot struggling in the Edmonton crease, posting a 4-2-0 record with a 2.60 goals-against average and .917 save percentage so far this season. After the loss it's likely Talbot is back in the crease for Sunday's home game against the Golden Knights.

C 1. Aleksander Barkov
Active

Aleksander Barkov scored a goal and assisted on another in Monday’s 7-5 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Barkov was perfectly positioned by the side of the goal to bury a rebound on the power play 6:35 into the opening period. The Finnish center then followed that up with a primary assist on Evgenii Dadonov’s ninth goal of the season. The 23-year-old has 17 points in 18 games this season. Troy Brouwer, Jared McCann, Frank Vatrano, Mike Hoffman and Michael Haley also scored in the win.

Nov 19

2. Vincent Trocheck
Sidelined

Vincent Trocheck (leg) was forced to leave Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators on a stretcher.

Trocheck appeared to get his leg caught underneath him after he fell in a battle behind Ottawa's net. Those sort of injuries very rarely end with good news. Expect to be without the talented forward for an extended period of time.

2. Mike Hoffman
Active

Mike Hoffman scored a goal and assisted on another in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Hoffman took a pass from Evgenii Dadonov, blasting a one-timer in behind Henrik Lundqvist for his eighth goal of the season. The goal extended Hoffman’s point streak to 15 games, becoming the 11th different NHL player to record a point streak of at least 15 games in his first season with a new club. The 28-year-old winger is up to 18 points in 17 games this season after getting an assist on Aaron Ekblad's third goal of the season.

Nov 17

Active

Evgenii Dadonov scored a goal in Tuesday’s 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

It took Aaron Ekblad 8:15 into the second period to open the scoring and Dadonov followed with a goal of his own nine minutes later. With Mike Hoffman picking up a secondary assist on Ekblad’s goal, he and Dadonov became the first set of teammates to record simultaneous point streaks of at least 12 games since Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin accomplished the same feat between Oct. 23 – Nov. 17, 2007 (13 total games). Dadonov’s goal gives him a team-high eight, leaving him with 17 points in 15 games.

Nick Bjugstad is projected to move up to the second line on Monday night.

Bjugstad was alongside Jonathan Huberdeau and Vincent Trocheck at the morning skate. He had been playing on the third line, but his promotion bumped Fran Vatrano to that combination.

Troy Brouwer scored a goal for a second straight game on Sunday.

Brouwer found the back of the net in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Islanders and he scored again in Sunday's 5-1 victory against Ottawa. He logged just over 11 minutes of ice time in both contests. Brouwer has three goals and one assist in 13 games this campaign.

Mike Matheson registered two assists in Thursday's 7-3 loss to Columbus.

Matheson picked up both helpers in the first period to give Florida a 2-0 lead going into the second stanza. He had a hand in goals by Nick Bjugstad and Aaron Ekblad (power play) for his first multi-point performance of the year. Matheson has six points in 14 matches this season.

Alex Petrovic will be a healthy scratch for Saturday night's game against the Rangers.

If you are looking for penalty minutes from your blueline, look elsewhere Saturday night. Mark Pysyk will draw back into the Panthers' lineup in Petrovic's place. Maxim Mamin will also play against New York, while Denis Malgin will sit in the pressbox with Petrovic.

Nov 17

6. MacKenzie Weegar
Active

MacKenzie Weegar (shoulder) returned to action Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Weegar went scoreless with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and a hit in 15:25 of ice time. He was a member of the bottom defensive pairing for Bob Boughner's Cats and he therefore has very little fantasy appeal at this juncture.

Oct 17

7. Bogdan Kiselevich
Active

Bogdan Kiselevich posted two assists in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Kiselevich helped set up goals by Aleksander Barkov and Frank Vatrano during the second period. He has collected three of his four assists this season in the past three games.

Nov 12

G 1. Roberto Luongo
Active

Roberto Luongo gave up four goals on 24 shots in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

It’s back-to-back rough starts for Luongo, giving up a combined 10 goals to both the Blue Jackets and the Rangers. It’s a little hiccup in what has so far been a solid season for the 39-year-old goaltender. His record falls to 4-2-0 with a 2.48 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage.

Nov 17

2. James Reimer
Active

James Reimer gave up five goals on 38 shots in Monday’s 7-5 win over the Ottawa Senators.

It was a pretty average start for Reimer who got plenty of offensive support with his teammates jumping out to a 4-1 lead after the opening period. The Panthers decided to give starter Roberto Luongo a night off after a couple of rough starts and were able to pull out a win despite the average start from their backup. Reimer will see his record improve to 2-4-1 with a 3.28 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage.

C 1. Anze Kopitar
Active

Anze Kopitar scored a goal and assisted on another in Saturday’s 5-3 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Finding themselves down 1-0 in the second period, the Kings got two goals just 19 seconds apart from Nate Thompson and Kopitar to take the lead. The Predators were then able to tie it but the Kings’ captain set up Alex Iafallo for another lead. Unfortunately, the Kings fell apart in the final period, giving up three goals. The two-point night breaks a streak of five games without a point for Kopitar. The 31-year-old sits at five goals and eight points in 18 games this season.

Nov 17

2. Jeff Carter
Active

Jeff Carter had a hand in both Los Angeles Kings goals in a 5-2 loss to his former team, the Philadelphia Flyers, on Thursday night.

Carter has five points in nine career games against the Philadelphia Flyers, the team that drafted him in 11th overall in 2003. He scored a second period marker before assisting on Ilya Kovalchuk's own later in the period. Carter now has three goals and seven points in 12 games this season.

Nov 2

3. Adrian Kempe
Active

Adrian Kempe has been cold out of the gate.

Kempe has just a goal and an assist in 15 games this season. It's a step back from his first full campaign in 2017-18 when he scored 16 goals and 37 points in 81 contests. "I try to look at myself a lot," Kempe said. "If I’m frustrated, I know I can play well. I’ve just tried to go back to the forechecking mind-set, the working mind-set. Because I know, after that, the goals are going to come."

Nov 10

4. Nate Thompson
Active

Nate Thompson scored his first of the season Saturday.

Thompson, as have most Kings, has struggled to find the back of the net this season but finally found paydirt against the Predators Saturday. It was also his first point of the season. Needless to say, he has no fantasy value.

Nov 18

5. Gabriel Vilardi
I.L.

Gabriel Vilardi (back) is inching his way towards a trip to Ontario of the AHL for a conditioning assignment.

It's believed that Vilardi may be roughly two weeks out from that assignment, but he has been back skating for weeks now. He finally appears to be nearing a return to some game action.

LW 1. Ilya Kovalchuk
Active

Ilya Kovalchuk had his four game points streak end on Thursday.

The Kings only scored once on Thursday and the talented Russian was not in on the goal. he has 14 points including five goals in 15 games this season and is worth a roster spot in all leagues at this time.

Nov 9

2. Alex Iafallo
Active

Alex Iafallo scored the winner as well as the insurance goal in the Kings 4-2 win over Detroit Sunday.

It was the first two goals of the season for Iafallo who is making the most of the injury to Dustin Brown as he is seeing first line minutes with Anze Kopitar and Ilya Kovalchuk. It's a nice spot to be in and with Brown expected to be out another two-three weeks with a broken finger, this is Iafallo's chance to shine.

3. Carl Hagelin
Active

Carl Hagelin made his debut with Los Angeles on Friday night.

Hagelin played alongside Adrian Kempe and Matt Luff on the third line. "Hagelin was good tonight, too," coach Willie Dejardins said after the contest. "His speed helped us. When you look at Kempe and Hagelin and Luff, that line gave us some good speed and made a difference, and I was able to play them lots." Hagelin had three shots in 15:47 of ice time against Chicago in a 2-1 shootout win.

Nov 17

Active

Kyle Clifford has been issued a 01.08 fine by the NHL.

Clifford was punished for kneeing Minnesota’s Jordan Greenway during Thursday's game. Clifford is making .8 million in 2018-19 (.6 million cap hit), so he should be fine.

Austin Wagner will get back in the fold on Monday night following his five-game stint in the minors.

"We would like to be a quicker team, so he's a guy that can come in and give us some quickness," said coach Willie Desjardins. "Luff came up and showed he can play. I think young guys are more able to step in the lineup now than they used to be, so I think he's a guy that maybe can give us a little bit of energy." He is slated to play on the fourth line and Michael Amadio will be scratched.

Nov 19

RW 1. Dustin Brown
Active

Dustin Brown scored a shorthanded goal with a shorthanded assist, an even-strength helper and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win against Columbus.

Brown also added a blocked shot and five hits in his 20:48 of ice time, serving as a one-man wrecking crew against the Jackets. It was his most impressive showing in three games since making his season debut last Sunday after being sidelined since training camp with a broken finger. He is back skating with partner in crime Anze Kopitar and he is back to being a solid fantasy option.

Nov 4

2. Tyler Toffoli
Active

Tyler Toffoli scored a goal in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Toffoli picked up a turnover in the neutral zone, made a great move at the Chicago blue line before his shot went off 'Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith and into the net. This was the Kings forward's first point in four games. He finished the night with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and three takeaways in 19:28 of ice time. The 26-year-old is up to five goals and five assists in 18 games this season. Ilya Kovalchuk and Anze Kopitar both scored in the shootout to give the Kings a much-needed victory.

I.L.

Jonny Brodzinski's upper-body injury is reportedly related to his shoulder.

As previously reported, Brodzinski was hurt during Thursday's preseason contest. He's listed as being out indefinitely, which unfortunately interrupts his fight to make the Kings' opening game roster and might end up ending his training camp opportunity altogether.

6. Matt Luff
Active

Matt Luff scored a goal in Monday’s 2-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Luff took a feed from Adrian Kempe as they entered the zone, firing off a quick wrister to beat Jake Allen for his first career NHL goal. The 21-year-old Luff will not hold any fantasy value as we move forward. Anze Kopitar added a goal into an empty net.

Nov 19

D 1. Drew Doughty
Active

Drew Doughty feels he needs to do more to turn the Kings' season around.

While talking about how each player needs to step up, Doughty also pointed the finger at himself. "Even myself, I’m going out there, I’ve been frickin’ minus almost every game, it seems like, whether it’s an empty net or whatever it may be," Doughty said. "I’m going out there thinking, ‘Don’t get scored on. Don’t get scored on.' And when you think that way, the bad things happen. So you’ve got to start thinking positive, and I know it’s hard to think positive when we’re losing like this, but that’s just the bottom line." Doughty has been a negative player in each of his last four games and is minus-nine on the season. Of course, plus/minus needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but clearly it's something on his mind. He also has a goal and 10 points in 17 games this season, so from an offensive perspective, he's been largely living up to expectations.

Nov 15

2. Jake Muzzin
Active

Jake Muzzin scored the only Los Angeles Kings goal in a 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.

Muzzin had gone nine games without recording a point before Thursday night's goal, his first of the season. Unfortunately for him and the Kings, it was only bit of offense they could muster. The Kings have now lost to the Wild for the second time in two weeks.

Nov 9

3. Alec Martinez
Active

Alec Martinez posted two assists with a plus-3 rating, a blocked shot and four hits over 22:18 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-1 win against the Ducks.

Martinez entered the game with just one goal and three points over his first 13 outings, so the multi-point performance was a surprise. In fact, he hadn't had two or more points in a game since he closed out the last regular season with two goals against the Dallas Stars on April 7. He is far more useful in fantasy formats for his blocked shots (32) and hits (24).

Nov 7

4. Dion Phaneuf
Active

Dion Phaneuf became the 326th player in NHL history to play in 1,000 games Saturday.

The defenseman was the 21st player to be wearing a Kings uniform when accomplishing the feat. Phaneuf is having a tough go of things this season with only one assist in 19 games as well as a minus-19 rating. He has no fantasy value at this time but congratulations are in order for the feat.

Nov 18

5. Derek Forbort
Active

Derek Forbort played on Saturday for the first time in the pre-season.

Forbort finally got into some practices with contact this past week and was in the lineup Saturday. "It’s at rough game for him I think coming in, but I think it’s good that he got in a game," coach John Stevens said. "You can practice as hard as you want and get back in a game, but the fact that it’s his first game after a long time off, and I didn’t think the team was very good around him, so that probably made it a little worse for him. But, I think it’s good that he got in a game." Forbort could be the top pairing with Drew Doughty and that would bolster his limited fantasy value in traditional pools.

The Los Angeles Kings are expected to scratch Oscar Fantenberg for Thursday night's matchup with the Minnesota Wild.

Jack Campbell (knee) has been moved to injured reserve.

Campbell is slated to miss four-to-six weeks because of a meniscus tear in his knee. He will undergo surgery to repair the damage.

Nov 13

3. Peter Budaj
Active

Peter Budaj (illness) will serve as the Kings' backup on Friday.

Maybe under different circumstances, Budaj would have gotten the game off. However, Los Angeles is already missing goalies Jonathan Quick and Jack Campbell due to injury, so these aren't ideal times for the Kings to say the least.

Nov 16

4. Cal Petersen
Active

Calvin Petersen stopped all 28 shots he faced in Los Angeles’ 2-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

What a night from Petersen who made several huge saves. Tonight’s shutout was the first of his career. He has been quite a surprise for the Kings who are down two goaltenders. The 24-year-old netminder will see his record improve to 2-1-0 with a 1.64 goals-against-average and a .951 save percentage.

Eric Staal notched one goal and one assist in Thursday's 6-2 win over Vancouver.

Staal scored his sixth goal of the season during the second period when the Wild took full control of the contest. Minnesota outshot the Canucks 12-8 in the frame and outscored them 3-1 to take a 5-1 lead into the third period. Staal has 14 points in 18 matches this year.

LW 1. Zach Parise
Active

Zach Parise scored a power-play goal in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Parise cut the Blackhawks' lead to 2-1 at the 7:56 mark of the second frame. Unfortunately for the Wild, that's the only offense they could muster on Sunday night. Parise finished the game with a minus-1 rating, four shots on goal and one hit in 17:54 of ice time. The veteran has found the back of the net in back-to-back games and in three of his last four contests. The 34-year-old has nine goals and nine assists in 20 games this season. He's having a strong year, but the key will be for him to remain healthy.

2. Jason Zucker
Active

Jason Zucker picked up an even-strength goal with two assists, a plus-3 rating, five shots on net and a hit over 15:56 of ice time in Friday's 5-1 win in Anaheim.

Zucker posted a respectable four goals and nine points with a plus-3 rating in his 12 outings in the month of October, but he was scoreless with a minus-3 rating in three November contests until Friday's outburst. He entered Friday's battle with no goals in seven straight since Oct. 20, and just one goal in the past 11 outings. He'll try to keep it going in Sunday's contest in St. Louis.

3. Jordan Greenway
Active

Jordan Greenway scored his first career NHL goal on Monday night in a 5-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

It was Greenway's first game back with Minnesota after a two-game stint with the AHL club. His goal tied the game at one apiece in the first period just 35 seconds after the Canucks opened the scoring. On his goal, he headed to the net and deposited Spurgeon's rebound into the back of the net. In 10 games with the big club this season, the 21-year old has averaged just over 11 minutes of ice-time per night and has posted a goal and an assist.

Oct 30

4. Marcus Foligno
Active

Marcus Foligno and Eric Fehr have formed a dynamic duo on the penalty kill for the Minnesota Wild.

Foligno and Fehr have been paired on the fourth line and they've been killing penalties together. They've also gotten to know each other off the ice a little bit better. "That stuff goes a long way," Foligno said. "You get out to dinners on the road. Even to have his family over to dinner, that’s what we’re trying to do. He’s a good guy. He comes to work every day. He has a positive attitude. He’s someone that I like to keep myself around. [He’s] real positive. It just kind of rubs off on everyone. You want to work hard for a teammate or a person who has that positive attitude." It's nice to see two role players playing so well, but neither one will carry any fantasy value this season.

Matt Dumba stretched his point streak to four straight games with an assist on Sunday.

Dumba had a three-game goal spree going into the match, but he was unable to continue that despite seven shots on target against Chicago. He has collected five points during his current scoring streak to give him a total of 13 on the year in 21 appearances.

3. Jared Spurgeon
Active

Jared Spurgeon recorded a pair of assists with a plus-4 rating, two blocked shots and a hit over 19:53 of ice time in Friday's 5-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks.

Spurgeon started out slowly with three straight scoreless outings to open the season. However, he is good for three goals with 10 points over the past 13 contests with a plus-3 rating, 16 hits and 18 blocked shots. He contributes a little bit of everything for fantasy owners and DFS players. He'll try and keep it rolling in Sunday's tussle in St. Louis.

Nov 10

4. Jonas Brodin
Active

Jonas Brodin potted a goal with an assist, a plus-4 rating and two hits over 17:07 of ice time in Friday's 5-1 victory against the Anaheim Ducks.

The multi-point game was a rarity for Brodin, as fantasy owners do not usually expect a lot from him on the offensive end. He has just three goals and four points with a plus-2 rating through 16 outings. However, he has managed 11 hits and 27 blocked shots, and that's where his value is to owners in deeper pools and DFS play.

Nick Seeler scored his first NHL goal and added two assists in a 5-1 win over St. Louis on Saturday.

Seeler had four assists in 22 games last season and he didn't have a point in his first 12 outings this campaign. His first NHL marker came off a wrist shot that bounced off a member of the Blues. Despite the impressive showing, Seeler should be kept on the waiver wire.

He will get .75 million over the course of the contract and his cap hit will be .25 million. The former Dallas Star played 73 games last season, picking up 13 points so do not expect him to be drafted in traditional pools. The 28-year-old will be a third pairing defenseman in Minnesota.

G 1. Devan Dubnyk
Active

Devan Dubnyk gave up three goals on 29 shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Sprawled out in the third period, Dubnyk somehow robbed Jack Eichel of a sure goal, keeping his team ahead. Unfortunately for the Wild, they couldn't keep the Sabres from making a comeback in the final seven minutes. His record falls to 9-5-2 with a 2.36 goals-against-average and .925 save percentage.

2. Alex Stalock
Active

Alex Stalock turned aside 25 of 27 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks did all of their damage in the first period, as they got a power-play goal from captain Jonathan Toews and an even-strength tally from Brandon Saad. Chicago's third goal was scored with Stalock on the bench in favor of an extra attacker in the third period. The Wild's backup netminder has a 3-2-0 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.

C 1. Max Domi
Active

Max Domi has been outstanding since coming to Montreal.

Domi is on a nine-game point streak after registering an assist on Saturday. That brings him up to 10 goals and 24 points in 20 contests this season. He never lived up to his potential in Arizona, but it seems the change of scenery has done him wonders. "He’s grown up in it," Canadiens coach Claude Julien said Friday. "With his father (former Toronto Maple Leaf Tie Domi) he’s grown up in it and I think he just thrives on that kind of environment and he seems to enjoy it. He’s been great and I know from my first conversation with him he was excited to come to Montreal. You could sense it in his voice, you could sense it in the conversation. So it’s nice to have guys like that around."

3. Jesperi Kotkaniemi
Active

Jesperi Kotkaniemi picked up a couple of assists in Monday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Canadiens found themselves down 2-1 to start the second period but scored three goals in the opening 1:35 of the period to take the lead, with Kotkaniemi picking up assists on goals by Jeff Petry (PPG) and Kenny Agostino. The Capitals stormed back to force overtime, and that is where former Hab, Lars Eller ended the game. The 18-year-old Kotkaniemi has had a nice start to his NHL career, sitting at 12 points in 21 games this season.

Nov 19

4. Matthew Peca
Active

Matthew Peca will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tomas Plekanec will take his spot in the lineup. Peca looked good during the preseason, but he hasn't been as noticeable on the ice since the start of the regular season. Karl Alzner and Nikita Scherbak will also serve as healthy scratches.

Oct 13

LW 1. Jonathan Drouin
Active

Jonathan Drouin scored a goal and assisted on another in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Drouin started off his night with a secondary assist after Max Domi's shot deflected in off of Andrew Shaw. Drouin then scored the game-winner on a power play, beating Jacob Markstrom with a point shot through traffic for his seventh goal of the season. The 23-year-old winger has eight points in his last seven games, bringing him to 17 points in 20 games.

Nov 17

2. Tomas Tatar

Tomas Tatar has scored six goals in the last six games.

Tatar has nine goals on the year and 17 points through 20 games. He only had six points as a member of the Vegas Golden Knights in 20 appearances after he was acquired from Detroit last season.

Nov 19

3. Artturi Lehkonen
Active

Arturri Lehkonen's second goal of the year stood as the game-winner in a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

Lehkonen's goal from earlier this month was eventually handed to another Hab, which means Thursday night's goal was his first since the team's home opener back in October. Jonathan Drouin and the red-hot Tomas Tatar also scored for the Canadiens in the victory.

Nov 16

4. Charles Hudon
Active

Charles Hudon moved up to a line with Max Domi and Jonathan Drouin in Thursday's win over Washington.

Hudon didn't pick up a point in Montreal's 6-4 victory, but he was buzzing with four shots on goal and two hits in 17:04 of ice time. He could be worth keeping an eye on if he stays on that combination and starts to heat up offensively.

Nov 2

5. Nicolas Deslauriers
Active

Nicolas Deslauriers found the back of the net and registered an assist in a 6-5 overtime loss to Buffalo Thursday night.

Deslauriers didn't record a point in his first nine games of 2018-19. He's not expected to make offensive contributions on a regular basis.

Nov 19

3. Joel Armia
Sidelined

The Montreal Canadiens have announced that Joel Armia (knee) will miss the next six-to-eight weeks due to a knee injury he suffered on Tuesday night.

Armia was forced to leave the contest against the Rangers after suffering a knee-on-knee collision with Brendan Smith. His six-to-eight week timeline puts his return in the late December range. Kenny Agostino is currently taking his place in the lineup.

Nov 8

4. Andrew Shaw
Active

Andrew Shaw has had success playing on a line with Max Domi and Jonathan Drouin.

Shaw scored in the regular-season opener, but followed that up by going 10 games without a goal. He's been a whole lot better since being moved to the Canadiens' second line, as he's scored four times in his last three contests. The 27-year-old isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues, but he could be a useful asset in leagues that award fantasy points for penalty minutes. He's up to five goals and two assists in 14 contests.

Nov 15

5. Kenny Agostino
Active

Kenny Agostino has been brought up by Montreal.

Agostino has four goals and 10 points in 12 contests for the AHL's Laval Rocket this year. He skated in five NHL games with the Boston Bruins last season and he posted one assist.

Sidelined

Jake Evans (concussion) was released from hospital last night.

Evans exited Friday's rookie game against Ottawa on a stretcher after he took a high hit from Sens prospect Jonathan Aspirot. The Canadiens forward is now going through concussion protocol.

Sep 8

D 1. Shea Weber
Sidelined

Shea Weber (knee) is probably at least a week away from returning.

Jeff Petry netted his first goal of the year in a 3-2 win over Calgary on Tuesday night.

Petry tied the game at 1-1 with a power-play goal at the 15:50 mark of the second period. He also added an assist on a goal by Brendan Gallagher during another second-period power play. Petry has eight points in eight games this campaign.

G 1. Carey Price
Active

Carey Price allowed five goals on 34 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

Price was given a 4-2 lead 1:35 into the second period but then gave up goals to Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin to tie it. After that, he denied Ovechkin of a hat trick on two different occasions, even earning himself a high-five from the Russian winger for one of his stops. It ended up being all for not as former teammates Lars Eller beat him in overtime on one he'd love to get back. Price will see his record fall to 7-4-4 with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Antti Niemi
Active

Antti Niemi faced a barrage of shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton.

Niemi stopped 37 of the 43 shots he faced, including 17 of 18 during the second period. "Well, he gave us a chance," coach Claude Julien said of Niemi. "After two periods we were only down by a goal. That was the positive part of tonight that we still had a chance going into the third. But again, we weren't able to find our game and they scored more goals." Niemi was making his second straight start, but Carey Price should be back in the crease on Thursday night.

C 1. Ryan Johansen
Active

Ryan Johansen scored a goal and assisted on another in Monday’s 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Johansen started off his night with a secondary assist on Filip Forsberg’s top-shelf wrister before getting a goal of his own after redirecting Craig Smith’s wrist shot in behind Louis Domingue. The 26-year-old Johansen has put together a solid season. He is now up to four goals and 20 points in 21 games. Kyle Turris also scored in the win.

Nov 19

2. Kyle Turris
Active

Kyle Turris scored a goal and assisted on another in Thursday’s 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Fighting off Braydon Coburn in front of the net with one hand, Turris somehow got his stick up with his other to tip in a shot by Mattias Ekholm for his third goal of the season, opening the scoring. The Preds then closed out the period with a goal from Roman Josi with seven seconds left in the frame before adding another two goals in the final period to ice this one. Turris will now see his point totals rise to 11 in 13 games this season, with five in his last four games.

Nov 1

3. Nick Bonino
Active

Nick Bonino scored his first goal of the season in a 2-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes Thursday night.

Nov 15

4. Colton Sissons
Active

Colton Sissons scored Nashville’s first three goals of the game as the Predators beat the Avalanche 4-1 on Wednesday night.

Sissons doubled this season’s production going into the game by registering his second career hat trick. His first two goals were scored in the first period at even strength. He later completed the hat trick with a powerplay goal with three seconds remaining in the second period to give the Preds a 3-1 lead heading into intermission. With the effort, the 25-year old center has amassed four goals and two assists on the season.

Nov 8

5. Frederick Gaudreau

Frederick Gaudreau made Nashville's roster out of training camp.

Predators coach Peter Laviolette said this is Gaudreau's "time to make a case that he belongs here on a full-time basis." He earned three assists in 20 NHL games last year.

Oct 3

LW 1. Filip Forsberg
Active

Filip Forsberg posted two goals with an assist, a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal, a blocked shot and a minor penalty in Tuesday's 5-4 loss against the San Jose Sharks.

Forsberg was doing his best to keep the road team in the game, but only Craig Smith was able to record a multi-point night in the loss. He entered the game with no goals and just one assist in six games since his hat trick against the Edmonton Oilers on Oct. 27. While he has been cold lately, he remains a fantasy must-start during thick or thin due to his ability to pick up points in bunches.

Nov 14

2. Kevin Fiala
Active

Kevin Fiala will play on the fourth line on Monday night versus Tampa Bay.

Coach Peter Laviolette moved Ryan Hartman to the second line last game and liked the results. Fiala has just two goals and nine points in 20 games this campaign.

Nov 19

3. Calle Jarnkrok
Active

Calle Jarnkrok scored three goals in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

What a monster performance from Jarnkrok who first got on the board with an even-strength goal midway through the second period before finishing with power play and shorthanded goals in the third period. He is the seventh player since 2012-13 to record a hat trick that included goals in all three facets of the game. Nick Bonino and Kyle Turris also scored in the win. The 27-year-old Jarnkrok is up to six goals and eight points in 17 games this season.

Nov 17

4. Zac Rinaldo
Active

Zac Rinaldo (lower body) could return to the lineup on Wednesday night.

Rinaldo practiced with the fourth line on Tuesday alongside Colton Sissons and Miikka Salomaki. He has missed the last two games with a lower-body injury. Nashville had an optional session on Wednesday, so the lineup will be uncertain until the pregame warmups.

Nov 7

RW 1. Viktor Arvidsson
I.L.

Viktor Arvidsson will miss the next six-to-eight weeks due to a broken thumb.

In other words, Arvidsson will be gone until the end of November or early December. He sustained the injury during Saturday's game, likely when he was slashed by Esa Lindell. It's terrible luck because he had only just returned from a lower-body injury.

Nov 15

2. Craig Smith
Active

Craig Smith appears to be getting a chance to play on the Predators' top line.

Smith was alongside Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg during the morning skate, so he should be projected to start in that spot against the Kings Saturday night. If you are looking for a short-term forward option, consider Smith.

Nov 17

3. Ryan Hartman
Active

Ryan Hartman scored a goal during Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Hartman finished off the game by putting the puck into a yawning cage with just under three minutes remaining in the third frame. The 24-year-old now has four points in his last four contests. He's up to four goals and four assists in 15 games this season.

6. Miikka Salomaki
Active

Miikka Salomaki (face) left Friday's game at Calgary in the second period after taking a stick to the face.

Salomaki retreated to the locker room for assistance from the training staff, but was able to return to finish out the game. He was scoreless with a minus-1 rating and one shot in just 5:56 of ice time while losing both of his faceoffs in the circle. There will be better days for Salomaki, who scored last time out against Minnesota. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy pools at this juncture.

Oct 20

D 1. Roman Josi
Active

Roman Josi scored a goal in Saturday’s 1-0 win over the Boston Bruins.

Josi did an incredible job picking up the loose puck at the blueline before dangling his way through both Danton Heinen and Torey Krug for the wonder goal. The goal gives Josi a modest three-game point streak, picking up four points during that span. The Swiss rearguard now has six points in his last seven games, bringing him to four goals and eight points in 14 games this season.

Nov 3

2. P.K. Subban

Nov 15

3. Ryan Ellis
Active

Ryan Ellis picked up a pair of assists with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and a blocked shot over 24:11 of ice time in Friday's 5-3 road win at Calgary.

Ellis hasn't lit the lamp through seven contests, he has contributed five helpers while posting a plus-6 rating. In fact, he is even or positive in all seven games this season in the plus/minus department. He is on pace for more than 40 points, which would be a career high. Ellis, who has nine or more goals in each of his past four seasons, will look for his first marker in Edmonton on Saturday.

Mattias Ekholm scored the game-winning goal in a 5-4 overtime win against Dallas on Saturday.

Pekka Rinne stopped 29 of 31 shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

What a performance by Rinne tonight, saving his best for the third period, denying the Lightning on plenty of chances to tie the game. He improves to 9-0-1 lifetime against Tampa. Tonight's win also moved him into a tie with Miikka Kiprusoff for the most wins in NHL history by a Finnish-born goaltender (319). Rinne's record improves to 8-2-1 on the year with a 1.69 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Juuse Saros
Active

Juuse Saros allowed five goals on 37 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 road loss against the San Jose Sharks.

Saros did a good job filling in for the injured Pekka Rinne in October, but his production has nosedived since flipping the calendar to November. He is 1-1-0 with a 4.54 goals-against average and .852 save percentage in two games. Saros isn't worth using outside of deeper fantasy pools at this point until he snaps back into form.

3. Pavel Zacha
Active

The time in the minors this month really helped Pavel Zacha.

Zacha looked lost before the Devils sent him to the minors on November 2. He returned November 13 and has played quite well since, scoring in each of the weekend games. "They let me play and focused me on being more in front of the net when I got the puck, like don’t try to look for a play but just shoot on net," Zacha said. "It was more about finding those scoring chances more and more often. It got me more comfortable in situations where I have the puck and I have to make decisions." He has two points in 14 games after not scoring in his first 12.

Nov 19

The New Jersey Devils have placed Brian Boyle (upper body) on injured reserve.

LW 1. Taylor Hall
Active

Taylor Hall scored two goals and picked up a couple of helpers in Tuesday’s 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Casey DeSmith made the initial save on Hall before Travis Zajac was able to pot home the rebound to open the scoring 28 seconds into the game. Hall then picked up another primary assist, this time on Damon Severson’s third of the year before getting a goal of his own off a breakaway in the third. Finally, Hall ended his night with one into an empty net. Goals have been a lot harder to come by this season for the 26-year-old, but he is now up to five goals and 19 points in 16 games this season.

4. Miles Wood
Active

Miles Wood scored a goal and added a helper in Tuesday’s 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Wood got the Devils off on the right foot when he opened the scoring at the 1:01 mark of the opening perod before getting the primary assist on Travis Zajac’s goal just four minutes later to give the Devils a 2-0 lead. Things then fell apart from there, with New Jersey giving up five straight goals and being blown out on the road. Wood’s goal was his first of the year and he now has five points in nine games.

Active

Brett Seney scored his first career NHL goal Sunday in a 5-2 loss to Winnipeg.

While losing takes the shine off the goal, the diminutive 22-year-old will remember the night forever as he beat Connor Hellebuyck for his first. Seney has some offensive upside as he had 10 points in 10 AHL games before his recall 10 days ago. While we cannot recommend him at this time, still, congratulations are in order for the winger.

RW 1. Kyle Palmieri
Active

Kyle Palmieri scored a goal and got an assist in Thursday’s 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

The New Jersey Devils have fallen hard since opening the season 4-0-0.

The Devils are 2-6-1 since that initial winning streak. Four of those losses have been by three or more goals while their most recent win on Monday was a decisive 5-1 victory against Pittsburgh. The wildly inconsistent nature of the Devils' season thus far hasn't gone unnoticed by the team. "It’s a commitment to detail and compete," Devils captain Andy Greene said. "It’s like a yo-yo right now. We’re up, we’re down. We’re up, we’re down. That’s mental. That’s where we’ve got to focus and be ready and commit to our game style." New Jersey is coming off a 7-3 loss to Ottawa as they prepare to face Toronto Friday night.

Ben Lovejoy (lower body) will play on Tuesday versus Tampa Bay.

Lovejoy has been activated from injured reserve and he is slated to play alongside Will Butcher. He missed three games due to a lower-body injury.

I.L.

Steven Santini (broken jaw) took part in Wednesday's practice.

Santini is medically cleared to return to the Devils' lineup, but his return might not be imminent. Instead, the Devils are likely to give him some time to get back up to speed first.

Egor Yakovlev will play on Saturday afternoon against Detroit.

Yakovlev will make his second appearance of the season because of an injury to Sami Vatanen, who won't play because of a lower-body injury.

G 1. Keith Kinkaid
Active

Keith Kinkaid was beaten three times on 30 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit on Saturday afternoon.

Detroit had a sluggish start, with four shots in the first period, but they woke up afterward to force the game into overtime. Kinkaid will see his record drop to 8-5-2 on the season.

Nov 17

2. Cory Schneider
Active

Cory Schneider stopped 23 of 25 shots in a 2-1 loss to Carolina.

Schneider is still searching for his first win of the season, but at least he held his own in this contest. He had an ugly 4.81 GAA and .849 save percentage in four games prior to Sunday's contest.

Nov 18

C 1. Mathew Barzal
Active

Mathew Barzal has been dropped from the Islanders first power-play unit to the second.

Head coach Barry Trotz is trying everything he can to get his team going on the man-advantage at this point. The Islanders were 0-for-four on the power play in Sunday's loss to Florida and they've scored just once on their last 19 opportunities. "There wasn’t a shooting mentality," Trotz said. "We’re trying to get a little more of that…When everyone is a playmaker, there’s no plays that get made…There’s not enough guys thinking shot."

Nov 13

2. Brock Nelson
Active

Brock Nelson has become a top-six forward for the Islanders.

There was a spot made available when John Tavares left the team in the off-season as a UFA and Nelson has grabbed the spot. "With the changes over the summer, there was some opportunity to be had with ice time and different things," Nelson said. "I thought camp was pretty good. I talked to Barry a couple of times about what he saw, different fits and whatnot, so I tried to elevate my game and I’m still trying to do that." Nelson saw his three year streak of 20 or more goals end last year when he had only 19 but a bigger role this season should see him get back to the mark. He has three points including a couple of goals in seven games this season.

Oct 22

3. Valtteri Filppula
Active

Valtteri Filppula found the back of the net during Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Filppula's goal gave the Islanders a 2-1 lead in the first period. The 34-year-old has five goals and eight points in 14 games this season. This was his first goal since October 18 (seven games). He doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy format.

Nov 6

4. Casey Cizikas

Casey Cizikas (lower body) have been moved to the injured reserve list.

Cizikas was hurt during Tuesday's contest. He's projected to miss the next two-to-three weeks.

Nov 15

LW 1. Anders Lee
Active

Anders Lee found the back of the net in the Islanders' 3-2 shootout win over Pittsburgh.

Lee has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. That gives him five goals and 12 points in 12 contests this season.

The New York Islanders have put Andrew Ladd (lower body) on the injured reserve list.

Ladd is out indefinitely due to the injury. He has three goals and seven points in 14 contests this season.

Matt Martin (upper body) will not be back on Sunday afternoon against Dallas.

Martin is still day-to-day due to an upper-body injury, but he appears to be getting close.

Nov 17

4. Michael Dal Colle
Active

Michael Dal Colle is expected to make his season debut for the Islanders Sunday.

Dal Colle was recalled earlier in the week after scoring seven times and assisting on seven others in 14 games in the AHL. The winger was selected fifth overall in 2014 but has yet to establish himself in the NHL. "I’m going to let him play a little bit and try to find his game," coach Barry Trotz said. "Maybe he has his game and he’s great tomorrow and I don’t have to tell him anything other than ‘just keep going, kid.’ I want to see how he plays." We cannot recommend him at this time.

Tom Kuhnhackl has been summoned from the minors.

Kuhnhackl, who is expected to be a healthy scratch Monday night, picked up two goals and an assist in two games with the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers during his brief loan from the Islanders.

6. Ross Johnston
Active

Ross Johnston will play with Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck again on Monday night.

Matt Martin (upper body) isn't ready to return, so Johnston will be in the lineup for a second straight contest. He has one assist in two games this campaign.

Nov 5

RW 1. Josh Bailey
Active

Josh Bailey scored a couple of goals in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Bailey showed impressive strength fighting off a Lightning defender in front of goal, spinning and beating Andrei Vasilevskiy on the game’s first shot. New York's winger then followed that up with another goal, this time with a one-timer from the left circle. The 29-year-old now has at least a point in nine of his last 10 games after seeing his eight-game point streak snapped in Monday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Canadiens. He’s now up to five goals and 17 points in 15 games this season.

Nov 8

2. Jordan Eberle
Active

Jordan Eberle scored a goal and assisted on another in Tuesday’s 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

The Canucks went to sleep, somehow leaving Eberle alone in front for the easy goal. Things didn’t get any better for the Canucks from there, this time leaving Tom Kuhnhackl alone in front and it was Eberle that fed him the puck from the corner for another easy goal. It was a night of miscues from the Canucks that the Islanders converted. Eberle finds himself at five goals and nine points in 17 games this season.

3. Anthony Beauvillier
Active

Anthony Beauvillier scored a goal in a 6-2 loss to Dallas Sunday afternoon.

Beauvillier had a hat trick in his previous game. Scott Mayfield scored the Islanders' other goal. Ryan Pulock, Leo Komarov, and Mathew Barzal each registered an assist.

Nov 18

4. Leo Komarov
Active

The Islanders have signed winger Leo Komarov to a four-year, million contract.

Komarov had a nice run in Toronto as a third-line winger until last season when the wheels fell off. In 2015-16 and 2016-17, Komarov was a solid 30-point player. Last season, "Uncle Leo" registered a mere 19 points in 74 games. We don't imagine he will play in the Islanders' top six and as such we don't see Komarov's numbers improving to any great degree.

Jul 1

5. Cal Clutterbuck
Active

With a goal on Tuesday, Cal Clutterbuck ended a 52-game drought.

Clutterbuck last scored a goal on Jan. 13. While he's not known primarily for his offensive contributions, his inability to score has been on his mind. "I think it would weigh on anybody," Clutterbuck said. "I think the worst part is a lot of self doubt that creeps in. A 10-game or 15-game slump is one thing. When it goes that long, you start to doubt your own ability. You get a good support system to keep reinforcing the fact that you’re playing well and you keep doing your job and it’ll go in. It did tonight and it’s a big relief."

D 1. Nick Leddy
Active

Nick Leddy has yet to pick up a point this season.

The Islanders have played in eight games this season and Leddy, who was supposed to lead the New York blueline, has yet to find the scoresheet. He had 10 goals and 42 points in 80 games last season but slowed down considerably after a strong start that saw him pick up 24 points in his first 28 games. It has been downhill since then with 16 points in his last 52 games and this season's slow start. He should not be in your fantasy lineup at this time.

2. Johnny Boychuk
Active

Johnny Boychuk isn't a believer that the Islanders will be near the bottom of the league standings in 2018-19.

"I've already seen some people pegging us as being in the bottom," Boychuk told The Athletic on Monday. "That's just a slap in the face when I see it. Our team is really good. I think we're going to show them we are a good team." The Islanders have been several changes this off-season, including the loss of the face of the franchise when John Tavares left via free agency. Boychuk seems like a player who can help fill the leadership void.

Adam Pelech (undisclosed) returned to action on Saturday November 11.

Pelech was sidelined for four straight games as a result of the injury. He had an assist in 20:15 minutes of ice time in his return.

Nov 12

4. Ryan Pulock
Active

Ryan Pulock scored his first of the season Sunday in a 2-1 win over Carolina.

It has been a frustrating start to the season for Pulock who came into the game with just one assist after scoring 10 times last season with 22 assists in 68 games but ended up with the game-winner. The defenseman has plenty of offensive upside and should be considered in most leagues.

Oct 29

5. Thomas Hickey
Active

Thomas Hickey has a new four-year deal with the New York Islanders.

Hickey will get million for the life of the contract. The defenseman was selected fourth overall in 2007 by the Los Angeles Kings but has not had the career one would expect of a high pick. Hickey had five goals and 25 points last season and could expect 25-30 points next season.

Jul 1

6. Scott Mayfield
Active

Scott Mayfield scored a goal in Monday's 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Mayfield was a healthy scratch in the first two games of the season, but he came through for his team on Monday. His goal gave the Islanders a 2-0 lead early in the third period. He isn't much of an offensive producer, so don't expect the points to continue coming.

Oct 9

7. Luca Sbisa
Active

Luca Sbisa will draw back into the lineup on Tuesday night.

Sbisa has only played in three games this season and he hasn't suited up since Oct. 17 against Anaheim. Adam Pelech will be a healthy scratch instead against Vancouver.

Thomas Greiss was chased out of Sunday's 6-2 loss to Dallas.

Greiss allowed three goals on 19 shots before being yanked less than halfway through the second period. Robin Lehner stepped in and stopped 11 of 14 shots.

Nov 18

2. Robin Lehner
Active

Robin Lehner is projected to get the start in goal Sunday.

It should be noted that a starting goaltender was not confirmed by coach Barry Trotz. Lehner was the first goalie off at Saturday's practice. The Islanders take on the Dallas Stars and Lehner would enter the games with a 4-4-1 record as well as a 2.59 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Active

Kevin Hayes found the back of the net in the Rangers' 7-5 loss to the Islanders Thursday night.

Hayes has recorded at least a point in four of his last five games. He's up to four goals and 12 points in 19 games this season. His career-high is 49 points and he might squeak by it before the campaign is over.

Nov 16

3. Filip Chytil
Active

Filip Chytil scored a goal in Monday’s 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

Chytil got the puck from Brendan Smith, firing off a nice shot to beat Anton Khudobin for the goal 4:32 into the third period. It’s now four straight games with a goal for Chytil, bringing him to seven points in 21 games this season. The 19-year-old forward is definitely worth a look on your roster if you’re playing in deeper leagues. Jimmy Vesey also scored in the win.

Nov 19

4. Ryan Strome

Ryan Strome will make his Rangers debut on Saturday night versus Florida.

Strome will play with Jimmy Vesey and Brett Howden. He has one goal and one assist in 18 games this campaign.

Nov 17

5. Lias Andersson
Active

Lias Andersson practiced on the fourth line Thursday.

He had played Tuesday in place of Brett Howden but the return to practice of Howden forced a move down the depth chart as he lined up with Filip Chytil and Vinni Lettieri. The duo of Andersson and Chytil will be stars for the Rangers in the years to come but for now, the fourth line keeps them in the lineup.

Nov 9

6. Brett Howden
Active

Brett Howden found the back of the net during Monday's 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

With the score tied at one in the third frame, Howden managed to whip a shot past Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom. Howden finished the night with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal and one takeaway in 16:59 of ice time. The 20-year-old is putting together a strong rookie season, as he's already accumulated four goals and 10 points in 17 contests. Howden isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues, but he definitely has a bright future ahead of him. Filip Chytil also scored for the Rangers in the win.

Nov 12

LW 1. Chris Kreider
Active

Chris Kreider scored a goal and assisted on two others in Saturday’s 4-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

Kreider started off his night with a couple of secondary assists in the opening period before putting the game to bed with a power play marker midway through the final frame. He has now picked up five points (three goals, two assists) in his last two outings and leads the Rangers in goals (11) and points (18) this season.

Nov 17

Active

Vladislav Namestnikov will skate on the top line with Filip Chytil and Mika Zibanejad on Saturday night.

Namestnikov will occupy the right side with Mats Zuccarello (groin) out of the lineup. He has contributed four assists in his last six outings.

Nov 17

3. Jimmy Vesey
Active

Jimmy Vesey scored two goals in Sunday’s 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Vesey took a nice backhand feed from Brett Howden before snapping home a nice wrister for his fourth goal of the season. Vesey hasn’t really taken a step forward this season like some expected. The 25-year-old winger added an empty-net goal and he now has six points in 14 games this season. Neal Pionk also scored for the Rangers.

Mats Zuccarello (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's match against Dallas.

Zuccarello was not on the ice for the morning skate and will miss his second straight game after re-injuring his groin. He sat out three games before a brief return on Nov. 15.

Nov 19

2. Pavel Buchnevich
I.L.

Pavel Buchnevich is on the injured reserve list.

As mentioned early, Buchnevich is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks with a broken thumb. With that in mind, it makes perfect sense for him to be on the IR. He has five goals and nine points in 14 contests this season.

Nov 12

3. Jesper Fast
Active

Jesper Fast scored a goal for the Rangers during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Filip Chytil found Fast with a beautiful pass in front for New York's first goal of the season. Fast finished with a career-highs in both goals (13) and points (33) last season and could push for more with a bit of an expanded role with the Rangers this season. However, the 26-year-old forward holds no fantasy value. Pavel Buchnevich added a goal with 35 seconds remaining in regulation.

Oct 4

4. Steven Fogarty
Active

The New York Rangers have recalled Steven Fogarty from the minors.

The 25-year-old has seven goals and seven assists in 18 games with AHL Hartford. Don't expect him to have any fantasy value while he's with the big club.

Nov 18

D 1. Kevin Shattenkirk
Active

Kevin Shattenkirk scored a power-play goal during Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The goal was his first of the 2018-19 campaign. That was the first of two power-play goals for the Rangers in the second period (Neal Pionk scored on the same four-minute power play). Unfortunately for the Rangers, they watched that lead evaporate in the third period and overtime, as Dylan Larkin scored the game-winner for the Red Wings. Shattenkirk finished the night with a minus-1 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in 19:11 of ice time. The 29-year-old has four points in 15 games this season.

Nov 9

2. Brady Skjei
Active

Brady Skjei is expected to sit on Monday night against the Dallas Stars.

This is according to the lineup sheet distributed to members of the media pre-game. It's worth noting he's on the ice for warmups, but there are seven defensemen on the ice currently.

Nov 19

3. Neal Pionk
Active

Neal Pionk found the back of the net in the Rangers' 3-2 overtime loss Friday night.

Pionk has scored in each of his last three games. The defenseman has three markers and nine points in 14 contests this season.

Nov 10

4. Marc Staal
Active

Look for Marc Staal to be a big veteran presence on the Rangers.

Staal will enter his 13th season in the NHL this year and at the age of 31 he is no longer an offensive threat. He will see the ice on plenty of occasions during defensive zone faceoffs as well as during the penalty kill and will be good in the young Rangers dressing room but as far as fantasy hockey is concerned, he is a zero.

Sep 17

5. Tony DeAngelo
Active

Tony DeAngelo had another strong game Saturday and is improving defensively.

DeAngelo's weakness was in the defensive zone but that part of his game has been improving of late and he is no longer the odd-man out when everyone is healthy. DeAngelo had an assist and a five-minute major for fighting and has two goals and seven points with 13 penalty minutes in just nine games. He is worth a shot in most leagues.

Nov 11

6. Fredrik Claesson
Active

Fredrik Claesson (upper body) will return to the Rangers lineup on Saturday night.

He'll be taking Brendan Smith's spot on the defense against the Blue Jackets. The 25-year-old has no points and a plus-1 rating in four games this season.

I.L.

The New York Rangers will not have any healthy bodies in the press box for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

G 1. Henrik Lundqvist
Active

Henrik Lundqvist allowed one goal on 17 shots in Monday’s 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

The Rangers did a good job keeping shots away from their goaltender tonight. Lundqvist was only beaten on a Stars power play where Jamie Benn screened him perfectly on Tyler Seguin’s goal. The 36-year-old goaltender has gone 6-0-1 in his last seven starts, improving his record to 8-6-2 with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Alexandar Georgiev
Active

Alexandar Georgiev will get a start this week, according to coach David Quinn.

Henrik Lundqvist is confirmed to start Monday and will probably get another crack at the Islanders on Wednesday. That could put Georgiev in the crease for Friday or Saturday when the Rangers against Philadelphia and Washington, respectively.

Nov 19

C 1. Matt Duchene
Active

Matt Duchene scored two goals and assisted on another in Monday’s 7-5 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Christian Jaros sent a beautiful outlet pass to spring Duchene on a breakaway that the latter converted for his ninth goal of the season. Duchene then followed that up with another goal before getting an assist on Drake Batherson second of the year. The 27-year-old Duchene has been remarkably hot lately, picking up 15 points over his last seven games to bring him to 27 points in 21 games. He’s working towards a hefty new contract.

Nov 19

2. Chris Tierney
Active

Chris Tierney became the fourth player in Senators' history to produce a point in each of his first seven games with the team.

Tierney stretched his point streak to seven games with an assist in a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal on Saturday night. He also had four shots in a season-high 21:09 of ice time. Tierney has two goals and nine points in nine outings with his new club.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau skated on Sunday for the first time since tearing his Achilles on the opening day of training camp.

"Right now, he has surprised everybody, the doctors and the medical staff with how fast it has gone," coach Guy Boucher said. "Everyone is really ecstatic at that." It's still unclear when or if Pagueau will be available to play this season, but his quick return to the ice is encouraging.

Drake Batherson recorded two assists in Ottawa's 6-4 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Active

Mikkel Boedker got his first goal as a member of the Senators on Monday night.

Boedker was set up nicely by Matt Duchene to put Ottawa up by a score of 3-1 at the midway point of the third period in an eventual 4-1 victory. He has generated five points, including four assists, in six games this year.

Oct 16

3. Brady Tkachuk
Active

Brady Tkachuk has been told to find a place to live in Ottawa because the Senators plan to keep him for the rest of the season.

If the Senators cut Tkachuk before he plays in his 10th game than this doesn't count as the first season of his entry-level contract. Because Tkachuk missed time with a leg injury, he's only played in seven games, so Ottawa still had time to make its decision. It's not surprising that the Senators have decided to keep Tkachuk in the NHL though, given that he already has four goals and eight points.

Nov 15

4. Ryan Dzingel
Active

Ryan Dzingel registered two assists in a 6-4 win against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Dzingel has recorded at least a point in six of his last seven games. He has nine goals and 16 points in 18 contests in 2018-19. This is shaping up to be quite the breakout season for him after he set a career-high in 2017-18 with 41 points.

Magnus Paajarvi has signed a one-year, 0,000 contract with the Ottawa Senators.

That's up from the 0K that Paajarvi made for the 2017-18 campaign. He had eight goals and 12 points in 79 games with St. Louis and Ottawa. "We're happy to have Magnus back in Ottawa," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "He showed us last season that he can play the game with speed, which fits with the style of play we want our team to exhibit. Magnus is a versatile player who will be able to provide us productive minutes in many situations."

Mar 14

7. Clarke MacArthur
I.L.

Senators GM Pierre Dorion told TSN Radio 1200 on Tuesday that he doesn't expect Clarke MacArthur to play this season.

MacArthur failed his medical at the start of training camp and he hasn't been talked about since. "He's moved to Florida, if I'm not mistaken," said Dorion. "And after failing that medical... You know what, if he wants to come back next year and try, we'd definitely look at it. Clarke was a big part of our playoff success, but I think health [and] family comes before hockey any day... I couldn't be responsible for allowing him to play after doctors said that he failed his medical." MacArthur was ruled out for 2016-17 because of concussion issues, but he managed to make a surprise return in April. That may not happen again this time, though.

RW 1. Mark Stone
Active

Mark Stone scored a couple of goals in Saturday’s 6-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Stone got his first of the night off a redirect from Thomas Chabot and followed that up with one shorthanded in the second period. The 26-year-old winger has 14 points in his last nine games, bringing himself to nine goals and 23 points in 20 games. He’s playing for a new deal, showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. Matt Duchene (x2), Cody Ceci and Brady Tkachuk also scored in the win.

Nov 17

Active

Bobby Ryan earned one goal and two assists in Saturday's 6-4 win over Tampa Bay.

Ryan got his fifth goal of the season during the first period and he posted two power-play helpers in the third frame on goals by Colin White and Mark Stone. Ryan has been quietly productive this year with 12 points in 17 contests.

I.L.

Marian Gaborik (back) is not expected to be available for the start of training camp and his status for the 2018-19 season is also in doubt.

"Gaborik has not been fully cleared health-wise," said Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion on Wednesday. "He's still in L.A. seeing a back specialist. Once he gets here, we'll have more information. Right now, I can't tell you more than that." Gaborik had surgery on a herniated disc in April and a timetable for his return is unclear at this time.

Thomas Chabot is currently tied for fourth in NHL scoring.

That's incredible. Chabot has picked up four goals and 20 points in 15 games this season. Only Mikko Rantanen, Connor McDavid and Nathan MacKinnon have scored more points than the Sens defenseman. He probably won't be able to keep this pace up, but he needs to be owned and started in all fantasy formats.

Nov 8

2. Cody Ceci
Active

Cody Ceci found the back of the net for a second straight game.

Ceci got his first goal of the year on Saturday and he scored again in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Tampa Bay. He gave the Senators a 3-2 lead at the 15:16 mark of the third period, but Tampa Bay came back to stun Ottawa and steal the victory. Ceci has four points in 10 games.

Dylan DeMelo had one goal and one assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over Buffalo.

DeMelo scored his second goal of the season just one minute into the second period. He also assisted on Bobby Ryan's empty-netter to seal the Senators' victory. DeMelo didn't have a point in his previous five outings, but he has seven points in 12 matches this season.

Maxime Lajoie scored a goal in Sunday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ryan Dzingel found Lajoie with a backdoor pass and the rookie blueliner buried the puck into the back of the net for his fifth goal of the season. Lajoie has been arguably the biggest surprise in the NHL this season, picking up eight points in 14 games this season. Tonight’s goal broke a run of seven consecutive games without a point for the 20-year-old blueliner. Bobby Ryan and Cody Ceci also scored in this one.

Nov 4

G 1. Craig Anderson
Active

Craig Anderson was pulled after giving up six goals on 22 shots in Monday’s 7-5 loss to the Florida Panthers.

It was just a rough night for Anderson who will see his three-game winning streak come to an end. As it has been the case all season, the veteran netminder usually needs plenty of goal support to come away with wins. His record falls to 9-6-3 with a 3.77 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage. Ottawa will be back in action on Wednesday night when Ottawa travels to Minnesota.

Nov 19

2. Mike McKenna
Active

Mike McKenna was burned for five goals on 40 shots in a 5-1 loss to Florida on Sunday.

McKenna got roughed up in his first start as a member of the Senators. He allowed all five goals during the second period when the Panthers peppered him with 22 shots.

Nov 11

C 1. Sean Couturier
Active

Sean Couturier is on a four-game point streak.

Couturier extended that run on Tuesday with an assist. He's up to seven goals and 12 points in 18 contests in 2018-19.

Nov 14

2. Nolan Patrick
Active

Nolan Patrick picked up a goal with an assist and a plus-2 rating in 15:38 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks.

Patrick has racked up three goals with four points over the past five outings. The multi-point effort was his first of the season, and just the fourth of his career. His last time with two or more points came on April 3, 2018 when he notched two goals and an assist in a road loss against the Islanders. Oddly enough, all four of his multi-point performances have come away from the City of Brotherly Love, too.

Oct 31

3. Scott Laughton
Active

Scott Laughton scored two goals in Thursday’s 5-4 overtime win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Laughton forced a turnover on a solid check behind the net, the puck got back to him in front and that is where he buried his first of the night. Then, with the Flyers down 4-2 in the third period, Laughton got his second of the night, this time off a scramble in front of goal to get Philadelphia back in the game and start a comeback. Dale Weise tied the game with just over two minutes left in regulation before Shayne Gostisbehere added the overtime winner. It’s the second two-goal game of the season for Laughton. He’s up to six goals and seven points in 16 games.

Nov 8

4. Jori Lehtera
Active

Jori Lehtera will not play on Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils.

This will mark the first time that Lehtera is scratched this season. The 30-year-old forward has three points in 18 games.

Nov 15

5. Corban Knight
I.L.

Corban Knight had surgery to repair a dislocated collarbone.

Knight is projected to be sidelined for four months. He was injured in Saturday's game against the New York Islanders.

Oct 31

LW 1. Claude Giroux
Active

Claude Giroux had a couple of assists Saturday as he reached the 700 point mark in his career.

Giroux is actually now at 701 points as his second assist tied him for second all-time on the Flyers list with Brian Propp at 480. He trails only Bobby Clarke but his far away from the Flyers legend who had 852 assists in his career with the Flyers. Nonetheless, congratulations are in order for Giroux who has seven goals and 24 points in 20 games this season.

Nov 18

2. James van Riemsdyk
Active

James van Riemsdyk generated three points in Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss to Tampa Bay.

In his second game back from injury, van Riemsdyk got his first goal of the season and he added two assists. He picked up his goal and one assist on Philadelphia power plays in the contest. Van Riemsdyk has four points in four games now.

Nov 17

3. Oskar Lindblom
Active

Oskar Lindblom is currently riding a four-game point streak.

Lindblom picked up at least one point in all four of the Flyers' games on the West Coast. He has six points during that stretch. The 22-year-old has eight points in 15 games this season. Despite the recent offensive outburst, he won't be worth owning in any fantasy format.

Nov 6

4. Michael Raffl
I.L.

The Philadelphia Flyers do not expect to have Michael Raffl (lower body) back for another few weeks.

GM Ron Hextall gave his forward a late November to early December timeline. He was injured a couple of weeks ago against the Colorado Avalanche when he received a hit from Patrik Nemeth.

Nov 5

5. Jordan Weal
Active

Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol expects Jordan Weal to play well on the third line.

Weal is getting the opportunity to play with Mikhail Vorobyev and Wayne Simmonds because James van Riemsdyk will miss an extended period of time. "I thought he had a pretty good camp this year," Hakstol said of Weal. "In terms of the No. 3 centerman position, (Mikhail Vorobyev) beat him out for that position. That had him on the outside looking in. Now he gets an opportunity to go in and his play will dictate the opportunity for him. You gotta look by last year a little bit. That doesn’t have a lot of bearing, at least for me on my evaluation of him this year. I think he’s been a good player in camp and I expect he’ll go in and do a good job. If he can go in and build some chemistry with his linemates, he’ll have an opportunity to stay in the lineup."

Oct 9

RW 1. Jakub Voracek
Active

Jakub Voracek scored a goal in Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Sean Couturier dumped the puck to Oskar Lindblom as he entered the zone and the latter somehow threaded a perfect cross-ice feed from the corner to Voracek, who one-timed his fifth goal of the year. Unfortunately for the Flyers, they couldn’t muster up anything else offensively in this one. The 29-year-old Voracek has 17 points in 18 games this season.

Nov 13

2. Wayne Simmonds
Active

Wayne Simmonds scored a pair of goals in Philadelphia's 6-5 shootout win over Florida on Tuesday.

Simmonds also accumulated 14 penalty minutes due to high-sticking and roughing minors as well as a 10-minute misconduct. He's up to five goals, six points, and 16 penalty minutes in six games this season.

Oct 17

3. Travis Konecny
Active

Travis Konecny netted a pair of goals in Saturday's 6-5 OT loss to Tampa Bay.

Konecny scored both markers during the Flyers' third-period comeback when the team rallied from a 5-1 deficit to force overtime. He posted goals at the 10:24 mark and at 15:58 point of the third frame. Konency didn't have a point in three previous games and had three points over 11 matches going into the match. Perhaps this is just what he needed to get going offensively.

Nov 17

4. Dale Weise
Active

Dale Weise scored his first of the season Thursday.

It was a huge goal that allowed the Flyers to tie the game at 4 late in the third period and send it into overtime. Weise has little fantasy value and now has six points in 13 games as he also drew an assist.

Nov 9

5. Pascal Laberge
I.L.

Pascal Laberge has undergone hip surgery.

There wasn't a timetable immediately available, but given that we're talking about hip surgery, an educated guess would be that Laberge will be sidelined for a while. He had 17 goals and 47 points in 64 QMJHL games in 2017-18.

Sep 28

6. Nicolas Aube-Kubel
Active

Nicolas Aube-Kubel has averaged a modest 5:39 minutes per game over his first seven NHL contests.

It's an adjustment for Aube-Kubel, but he's trying to fight his way up the Flyers' depth charts. "I’m trying to get the most I can out of the ice time I have," Aube-Kubel said. "So far it’s a very good experience. I don’t complain at all. I’m very happy with what I’m doing and being here with the guys. It gives me a taste of what the NHL is like. Sometimes it’s hard when for 15 minutes or 20 minutes you haven’t touched the ice. You’re trying to stay awake and play as simple as I can when I get on the ice." He doesn't have a point yet, but it's hard to fault him for that given how little he's played. He does have offensive upside and if he earns a bigger role we should see production out of him.

Nov 15

D 1. Shayne Gostisbehere
Active

Shayne Gostisbehere scored a goal during Tuesday’s 8-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Claude Giroux fed the puck to Gostisbehere at the point after a mad scramble in front that he blasted into the open cage for Philadelphia’s first goal of the night. After starting the season without any points through the opening two games, Gostisbehere is back on track. We shouldn’t read too into the 25-year-old’s slow start, Philly’s power play is one of the best in the NHL and that alone gives him a solid floor. Wayne Simmonds added a goal with 91 seconds remaining in regulation.

Oct 9

2. Ivan Provorov
Active

Ivan Provorov scored a goal with a plus-1 rating, two shots on net, five blocked shots and three hits across 26:55 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 road win against the Anaheim Ducks.

Provorov is a solid source of hits (22) and blocked shots (25), and he has managed a goal and four points through 12 games. His offense is actually down quite a bit after last season's solid effort, and his minus-7 rating isn't terribly helpful either. However, he had 17 goals and 41 points last season, and he had 30 points the season before that. The buy-low window is wide open right now, as Provorov could be ready to snap off points in bunches in the near future.

Oct 31

3. Andrew MacDonald
Active

Andrew MacDonald will be a healthy scratch on Thursday night against the Arizona Coyotes.

The 32-year-old blueliner has one points in six games.

Nov 8

4. Travis Sanheim
Active

Travis Sanheim (upper body) is expected to be sidelined for roughly a week.

Sanheim was hurt Sunday afternoon when he was hit by the Islanders' Matt Martin in the second period of their preseason game. It appeared that Sanheim's injury was to his shoulder. If there's a silver lining, it's that this happened early in the preseason, so Sanheim can afford to miss a week without it coming close to costing him any regular season games.

Sep 17

5. Robert Hagg
Active

Robert Hagg will be paired with Ivan Provorov again on Monday night.

This will be the second straight game that Hagg has played alongside Provorov. They are slated to play against Colorado's high-scoring top line on Monday. Hagg had a plus-2 rating in 19:38 of ice time against New Jersey on Saturday. He has been productive this campaign with five points through eight outings.

Oct 22

6. Radko Gudas
Active

Radko Gudas (illness) will be back in the lineup on Saturday afternoon.

Gudas was unavailable for Thursday's game against New Jersey because of an illness. He will replace Christian Folin in the lineup.

Nov 17

7. Christian Folin
Active

Christian Folin will be scratched Wednesday night when the Flyers visit the Ottawa Senators.

Joining Folin as a healthy scratch is Jordan Weal who is replaced by Dale Weise drawing in the lineup. Folin has struggled early on, and can potentially become a regular scratch.

Oct 10

8. Samuel Morin
I.L.

Samuel Morin (knee) will start the season on injured reserve.

Morin isn't expected to be ready to play until February due to a torn ACL. The Flyers also moved Michal Neuvirth to injured reserve on Tuesday, while Corban Knight, Pascal Laberge and Alex Lyon were moved to non-roster injured reserve.

Oct 2

G 1. Brian Elliott
Sidelined

Brian Elliott is expected to be out for the next two weeks.

Elliott sustained the injury on Thursday and couldn't complete the contest as a result. Michal Neuvirth is also sidelined, so Alex Lyon and Calvin Pickard will have to serve as the Flyers' goalies for now.

Nov 16

2. Michal Neuvirth
I.L.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that Michal Neuvirth (undisclosed) may be available to return before Brian Elliott gets back from a lower-body injury.

Neuvirth got back on the ice recently and is on the mend from what is believed to be a lower-body injury. He hasn't played since Oct. 27, which has been his only appearance of the season so far. With Elliott and Neuvirth injured again, Calvin Pickard and Alex Lyon are expected to handle the goaltending duties for Philadelphia.

Nov 17

3. Alex Lyon
Active

Alex Lyon has been summoned from the minors.

The Flyers lost Brian Elliott to another injury on Thursday night, so Lyon could be Calvin Pickard's backup goalie on Saturday afternoon depending on Elliott's status.

Nov 16

4. Calvin Pickard
Active

Calvin Pickard was burned for six goals on 26 shots in Saturday's 6-5 OT loss to Tampa Bay.

The Flyers became the first team in NHL history to rally from a four-goal deficit in the final 10:00 of regulation to tie the game, but Pickard was beaten just 1:47 into the extra session. Philadelphia doesn't have Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth due to injuries. Pickard will have to play better than this until one of them can return or else Alex Lyon could see some playing time.

Nov 17

C 1. Sidney Crosby
Sidelined

Sidney Crosby (upper body) will not return Monday night, but he is feeling better.

"I'm not playing tonight, but things are going in the right direction," said Crosby after Pittsburgh's morning skate. Happy with the way I'm feeling. He took part in the morning skate, but rotated in on defense so it was obvious he wasn't going to return. This will be the third straight game he will miss due to an upper-body injury.

Nov 19

2. Evgeni Malkin
Active

The NHL has decided not to hold a hearing for Evgeni Malkin over his high hit on Washington's T.J. Oshie.

The incident occurred on Wednesday and Malkin received a match penalty for his actions, which triggered an automatic review. It seems that will be the extent of what happens though. Oshie went through the concussion protocol, but was ultimately able to return to the game and went on to score the game-winning goal.

Nov 8

3. Derick Brassard
Active

Derick Brassard will play between Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel on Saturday night.

Brassard will return from a nine-game absence because of a lower-body injury. He is getting a great opportunity to step up with Sidney Crosby out due to an upper-body ailment.

Nov 17

4. Riley Sheahan
Active

Riley Sheahan (lower body) was available for the season opener.

Sheahan had a minus-two rating in 12:41 minutes of ice time. He finished 2017-18 with 11 goals and 32 points in 81 games.

Oct 5

5. Matt Cullen
Sidelined

Matt Cullen will be sidelined long-term with a lower-body injury, according to coach Mike Sullivan.

Cullen logged 10:45 of ice time on Saturday and scored his second goal of the season in a 6-4 loss to Ottawa. He has registered four points in 18 games this year.

Nov 19

6. Derek Grant
Active

Derek Grant has been brought up from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL.

Grant has split his time in the NHL and AHL this campaign. He has appeared in six games with Pittsburgh and has four points in five minor-league outings.

Nov 14

LW 1. Jake Guentzel
Active

Jake Guentzel scored a goal in Pittsburgh's 4-2 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

Guentzel has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has six goals and 12 points in 16 contests in 2018-19. That's a pretty encouraging start after he was limited to 48 points last season.

Nov 14

2. Tanner Pearson
Active

Tanner Pearson scored a goal and assisted on another in Monday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Pearson started off his night with a primary assist on Phil Kessel’s 10th goal of the year before getting his first in a Penguins uniform 5:00 into the second period. Pearson’s goal was his first since March 19th last season to end a 32-game goalless drought, which includes the playofs. The 26-year-old now sits at three points in 20 games this season. The Penguins had a total meltdown, dropping a 4-1 lead that they held up until midway through the second period.

Nov 19

3. Dominik Simon
Active

Dominik Simon scored a goal in Thursday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

Simon did well to go to the net and tap in a rebound from Jake Guentzel's shot for his third goal of the season. Simon now has goals in back-to-back games and has extended his point streak to five games (two goals, four assists). Currently riding shotgun to Sidney Crosby, Simon has fantasy value with eight points in 11 games to open the season. Evgeni Malkin also scored in the loss.

Nov 1

4. Zach Aston-Reese
Active

Zach Aston-Reese will make his season debut on Wednesday.

Aston-Reese had four goals and six points in 16 appearances with Pittsburgh last year. He was called up from the minors on Tuesday.

Nov 7

RW 1. Phil Kessel
Active

Phil Kessel has nine points in his last nine games but is a minus-seven.

The Penguins are floundering as they have lost eight of their last nine contests to drop to the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. Kessel has been producing offensively but his minus-seven rating that makes him even on the season. He has 23 points in 20 games this season and is a fantasy asset despite his poor showing defensively of late as far as plus/minus is concerned.

Nov 18

2. Patric Hornqvist
Active

Patric Hornqvist scored two goals and registered an assist in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay Thursday night.

That brings Hornqvist up to seven goals and 10 points in 17 games in 2018-19. He's on pace to get about 34 goals, which would be a career-high for him. That being said, he had roughly the same goals-per-game pace in 2017-18, but finished with 29 markers because he was limited to 70 games.

Nov 16

3. Bryan Rust
Active

Bryan Rust cited his "scoring touch and finishing ability" as something he'd like to build on going forward.

Rust agreed to a four-year, million contract extension with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday. The Penguins love that he can play on both wings, kill penalties, and slot in up and down the lineup. However, if there is one argument against that contract, it's been his overall production thus far as he has 33 goals and 79 points in 181 career games. The 26-year-old forward could still grow in that regard, especially if he's able to stay healthy after dealing with some injuries over the last two seasons.

Jun 27

4. Daniel Sprong
Active

Daniel Sprong will make his way back into the lineup for Pittsburgh on Saturday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Sprong sat out the last four games after picking up four points in 12 games this season. He'll skate on the third line alongside Dominik Simon and Derek Grant. Riley Sheahan will make way for him, while Juuso Riikola and Garrett Wilson will also sit.

Nov 17

D 1. Kris Letang
Active

Kris Letang scored a goal in Saturday’s 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Letang got the game started with a laser of a shot from the blue line to open the scoring with 8:01 left in the opening period. Things just completely fell apart from there, with the Penguins giving up the next five goals before the end of the second period. Pittsburgh did well not to roll, scoring three in the third to somewhat make this game interesting. Letang now has points in back-to-back games after going the previous five games without a point.

Nov 17

2. Justin Schultz
I.L.

Don't expect Pens GM Jim Rutherford to make a trade to replace injured defender Justin Schultz.

Schultz suffered a broken leg in Saturday's game against Montreal, but the Penguins are expected to replace him from within. "We’ll deal with it from within," Rutherford told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Monday afternoon. "It won’t be any different than anything else. If our team doesn’t play as well as we’d like, then we have to consider other options. At this point in time, we have guys who certainly deserve that opportunity [to replace Schultz]." Jamie Oleksiak, who was a healthy scratch on Saturday, will move back into a top-six role for now.

Oct 16

3. Brian Dumoulin
Active

Brian Dumoulin scored his first of the season Saturday in a 4-0 win over Arizona.

The defensive defenseman has six points in 15 games and seems poised to beat his career best point total of 18 set last season. He has little fantasy value in traditional leagues.

Nov 11

4. Jack Johnson
Active

Jack Johnson registered an assist in a 2-1 loss to Washington Wednesday night.

Johnson has a goal and three points in 14 games this season. He set a career-high in 2014-15 with 40 points, but nowadays he's not much of a factor offensively and that's unlikely to change.

Nov 8

5. Olli Maatta
Active

Olli Maatta is in a weird position this season as the Penguins' fourth-longest tenured member, but also the third youngest player on the team.

Maatta is in his sixth campaign with the Penguins, having first established himself in the NHL at the age of 19. "I was youngest by a long mile," Maatta said. "Now it feels like there’s more and more young guys coming up. The age group is definitely getting a little younger than it used to be. But it’s different for everybody. There’s no one way. You look at Sid, he’s the best in the world. He’s an exception. Geno’s an exception. They can just hop right in. For some guys, it takes a little longer. Look at (Guentzel). It took him a little longer to get in, but he hops in and he’s one of the better players. It really doesn’t matter what year you come in." Maatta isn't a major offensive contributor, but he does chip in from time-to-time. He has three assists in 10 games this season.

Nov 3

6. Chad Ruhwedel
Active

Chad Ruhwedel will be a healthy scratch on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils.

He has played in five games this season, failing to register a single point.

Nov 5

7. Jamie Oleksiak
Active

Jamie Oleksiak is finally showing his skills that made him a first round pick back in 2011.

Oleksiak has become a valued member of the Pittsburgh defensive corps as the six-foot seven-inch 265 pounder is a physical specimen on the blueline. He also has an offensive side to his game as he has four goals and eight points this season. "I think when Jamie gets himself in trouble, he tries to do a little bit too much," coach Mike Sullivan said earlier this season. "We talk a lot with him about his positioning and staying behind the puck and joining the rush, not leading the rush. I think (assistant coaches Jacques Martin and Sergei Gonchar), they spend a lot of one-on-one time with him, trying to help him with the different aspects of his game and the subtleties of his game. When Jamie plays a quiet game, I think that’s when he’s at his best." He is worth picking up in most leagues if available.

Nov 12

8. Juuso Riikola
Active

Juuso Riikola is expected to be a healthy scratch on Monday night against the Buffalo Sabres.

He isn't included on the official lineup published by the team. Sidney Crosby (upper body), Justin Schultz (left leg fracture) and Matt Cullen (lower body) will also sit.

Nov 19

G 1. Matt Murray
Active

Matt Murray gave up three goals on 10 shots before getting pulled in Saturday’s 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

The slump for Murray continues. He looks like a completely different goalie, lacking confidence and getting rattled very early in games. This marks the third time he gets pulled in his last six starts, suffering losses in five of them. Murray gets a no-decision tonight after his teammates scored three consolation goals in the final period. His record remains at 4-5-1 but he now owns a 4.08 goals-against-average and a .877 save percentage.

Nov 17

2. Casey DeSmith
Active

Casey DeSmith allowed five goals on 40 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

The Penguins jumped out to a 4-1 lead just 5:00 into the second period. Unfortunately, goals by Zack Bogosian and Casey Nelson to close out the period got the Sabres right back into things. DeSmith eventually gave up the tying goal to Casey Mittelstadt before giving up the winner to Jack Eichel just 45 seconds into the extra frame. DeSmith will see his record fall to 3-4-2 with a 2.53 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage.

Nov 19

C 1. Joe Pavelski
Active

Joe Pavelski has been named the third star of the week for the period ending Nov. 18.

Pavelski recorded five goals and one assist in three games. He posted a multi-point effort in each outing. Pavelski has 13 goals and 16 points in 21 matches this season.

Nov 19

2. Logan Couture
Active

Logan Couture posted three assists with a plus-1 rating, including one helper on the power play, in Saturday's 4-0 win against the Blues.

Couture hasn't scored a goal in 10 games dating back to Oct. 28 in Anaheim, and he entered the game on a four-game point drought before his big breakout performance. That goal against the Ducks was also the last game which he posted a multi-point outing. He will look to carry over the momentum into Tuesday's battle against the Oilers after two full days to rest.

Nov 18

3. Joe Thornton
Active

With his goal on Tuesday, Joe Thornton is now one of just seven players to ever record at least 400 goals, 1,000 assists, and 1,500 games played.

The others on that list are Steve Yzerman, Mark Messier, Jaromir Jagr, Gordie Howe, Ray Bourque, and Ron Francis. Thornton's goal on Tuesday also proved to be the game-winner as it broke a 4-4 tie against Nashville. That makes 63 of his 400 goals, game-winners.

Nov 14

4. Dylan Gambrell
Active

Dylan Gambrell is expected to play on Saturday night versus St. Louis.

Gambrell centered the fourth line at the Sharks' morning skate between Barclay Goodrow and Melker Karlsson. He was just recalled from the minors and will get to make his second NHL appearance of the year.

Nov 17

5. Antti Suomela

Antti Suomela will get back in the lineup on Tuesday.

Suomela was scratched for Saturday's match against Philadelphia. It's unclear if he will center the third and fourth line versus Minnesota in his return.

Nov 6

LW 1. Evander Kane
Active

Evander Kane scored a goal and assisted on another in Sunday’s 3-1 win over the Calgary Flames.

Kane needed just 50 seconds to take a feed from Joe Pavelski and snipe home his sixth goal of the season for the Sharks. Kane then followed that up with some great work behind the net to feed Donskoi who buried his fourth goal of the year. The 27-year-old Kane was in a bit of a cold spell before tonight’s game, picking up just one point in his last seven games but he now finds himself at 13 points in 18 games this season.

Nov 11

2. Timo Meier
Active

Timo Meier had a couple of assists Saturday.

Meier is now playing alongside Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski and is scoring no matter who he is playing with. Meier has taken his game to another level (perhaps even up two levels) as he has 12 goals and 21 points in 21 games this season. Meier was taken ninth overall in 2015 and is showing everyone why he was taken so high as this has been a huge breakout season after he scored 21 goals last season.

Nov 18

3. Tomas Hertl
Sidelined

Tomas Hertl (lower body) thinks he will be ready to return on Tuesday night.

Hertl took part in a full practice on Monday alongside regular linemates Logan Couture and Timo Meier. He has missed the last two games due to a lower-body injury.

Nov 19

4. Brandon Mashinter
Active

Brandon Mashinter has been called up by San Jose.

Mashinter has seven goals and 18 points in 41 games with San Jose's AHL affiliate this year. The Sharks also brought up Tim Heed, who has sat often as a healthy scratch lately.

Feb 13

RW 1. Joonas Donskoi
Active

Joonas Donskoi had a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over Calgary.

The line of Donskoi, Evander Kane and Joe Pavelski were responsible for all three goals as they were all in against the Flames. Donskoi halted a six-game pointless streak and has four goals and 10 points this season in 18 games. He is worth a shot in deep leagues.

Nov 12

2. Kevin Labanc
Active

Kevin Labanc had a minus-3 rating in Friday's 4-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

A night to forget for the San Jose Sharks, as they failed to figure out Blues goalie Chad Johnson. Labanc was on the ice for three goals against. He has two goals and nine assists in 17 games this season. He doesn't need be owned in standard fantasy leagues.

Nov 9

3. Melker Karlsson
Active

Melker Karlsson replaced Joe Thornton on the top line in practice Sunday.

The Sharks placed Thornton on the injured reserve list Sunday after he experienced some swelling in his surgically repaired right knee Saturday night. Karlsson played alongside Joe Pavelski and Timo Meier and should be there Monday afternoon when the Sharks are in New York to play the Islanders. He is worth a pick up at this time.

Oct 8

4. Marcus Sorensen
Active

Marcus Sorensen registered a goal with two assists, a plus-1 rating and two shots on net in 11:56 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-4 win against the Nashville Predators.

Sorensen has book-ended three scoreless games with a pair of three-point nights, posting two goals with six points over the past five outings on just seven shots on net. He has elevated his game skating alongside 39-year-old Joe Thornton, as well as Kevin Labanc. Sorensen is worth a look in deeper weekly fantasy pools as well as serving as an attractive low-cost DFS option.

Nov 14

5. Barclay Goodrow
Active

Barclay Goodrow went for a goal, an assist and a plus-4 rating with two shots on goal and three hits over 13:32 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-3 win against the Wild.

Goodrow entered the evening with just one goal and no assists over his first 14 games, so he has a long way to go before he is relevant in most fantasy circles. This was his first multi-point performance since March 20, 2018 against the New Jersey Devils.

D 1. Brent Burns
Active

Brent Burns registered an assist in a 5-3 loss to Toronto Thursday night.

Burns has three goals and 22 points in 20 contests in 2018-19. He's tied with Thomas Chabot for second place in the defensemen scoring race. Morgan Rielly leads the pack with 24 points in 19 contests.

Nov 16

2. Erik Karlsson
Active

Erik Karlsson recorded his first goal of the season while adding an assist in Saturday's 4-0 victory against the Blues.

Karlsson also chipped in with a plus-3 rating, three blocked shots and two hits over 20:55 of ice time. He has managed back-to-back multi-point games for the first time since donning a teal sweater, and he is working on a three-game point streak which ties a season best. Normally this wouldn't be terribly noteworthy giving his production in the past, but it certainly is this season. It appears he is awakening from his season-long slumber.

Nov 18

3. Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Active

Marc-Edouard Vlasic netted a goal in San Jose's 5-3 loss to Toronto on Thursday.

That was Vlasic's first goal in 20 games this season, though he also has five assists. It's worth noting that with Erik Karlsson and Brent Burns both getting plenty of power-play ice time, Vlasic is averaging just 0:54 minutes per game with the man advantage.

Nov 16

4. Justin Braun
Active

Justin Braun is expected to be in the lineup on Monday in Game 3 against Anaheim.

Braun blocked a shot in the final minute of Game 2, but he was back on the ice for the morning skate and he is poised to play Monday night.

5. Brenden Dillon
Active

Brenden Dillon contributed two assists in a 4-0 win versus Vegas in Game 4 on Wednesday.

Dillon is up to four assists in eight playoff games this year. He's never been much of an offensive contributor in the postseason before as he has no goals and seven assists in 40 career games.

6. Joakim Ryan
Active

Joakim Ryan took part in his first career fight on Saturday.

The fight occurred at the end of the game, but Ryan was able to practice on Friday without incident. "I feel fine," Ryan said. "[He] didn’t really get me with too many [punches] there. He got me with one at the end, but kind of just the side of the head. Nothing too bad, really." Ryan has no points in seven games this season.

G 1. Martin Jones
Active

Martin Jones made 29 saves on 34 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Thursday's loss was Jones's second regulation loss in 11 starts for the Sharks. The netminder's record falls to 9-5-1 with a 2.94 GAA and an .894 save percentage.

Nov 16

2. Aaron Dell
Active

Aaron Dell turned aside all 30 shots he faced in Saturday's 4-0 win against the visiting Blues.

The shutout was the fourth of Dell's career, and the Sharks helped limit the odd-man rushed after coughing up nine goals across the past two contests. He allowed three or more goals in each of his past four contests, going 0-2-2 during the span. He squared his record at 2-2-2 with a 2.47 goals-against average and .920 save percentage. When Martin Jones needs a breather Dell has proven to be a decent backup option.

Nov 18

C 1. Brayden Schenn
Active

Brayden Schenn (upper body) will make his return on Friday.

Schenn has missed St. Louis' last four games. Alexander Steen won't play due to an upper-body injury, so Schenn will play alongside Steen's linemates of Robby Fabbri and Tyler Bozak.

Nov 16

2. Ryan O'Reilly
Active

Ryan O'Reilly has been playing at a different level recently.

In his first five games as a member of the Blues, O'Reilly had four assists. Since then he's scored 10 goals and registered 19 points in 12 games. If there was any doubt whether St. Louis made a great trade with the Sabres when they acquired O'Reilly, that doubt should be well gone by now.

Nov 17

3. Tyler Bozak
Active

Tyler Bozak will be back in Toronto for the first time since he left the city as a free agent on July 1st.

Bozak, who had played his entire nine-year career in Toronto, will likely get a warm reception from Maple Leaf Nation. Look for Buds' coach Mike Babcock to give Bozak's buddy Nazem Kadri plenty of ice time against the former Leaf.

Oct 20

4. Ivan Barbashev
Active

Ivan Barbashev will get back into the lineup on Tuesday night.

Barbashev has been scratched for the last two games. He will center the fourth line between Patrick Maroon and Oskar Sundqvist.

Nov 6

5. Robert Thomas
Active

Robert Thomas played in his 10th career NHL game Friday night.

With that Thomas has surpassed the threshold that will allow the Blues to return him to his junior hockey team without burning a year of his entry-level contract. In other words barring something unforeseen, Thomas is likely to stay in St. Louis for the rest of the season. The rookie has four assists in those 10 games.

Nov 10

6. Oskar Sundqvist
Active

Oskar Sundqvist scored his third goal of the season in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota.

Sundqvist opened the scoring in the final minute of the first period. He has four points in seven outings this campaign.

Nov 19

2. David Perron
Active

David Perron went scoreless on no shots with a blocked shot, a minor penalty and a hit in Friday's 4-1 road victory against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Perron, who scored a career-high 66 points in the expansion season for the Golden Knights, has been blanked twice in his two outings against his former club this season. He also has two victories. "It's fun from the warm-up on to the last minutes," Perron said. "Obviously a lot of energy in this crowd and it's always fun coming here." He set an NHL record last season with 50 assists, most by any player on an expansion team.

Nov 17

3. Robby Fabbri
Active

Robby Fabbri will play alongside Ryan O'Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko on Monday night.

Coach Mike Yeo likes the chemistry that O'Reilly has had with Tarasenko and hopes that Fabbri can help set up Tarasenko. Fabbri hasn't earned a point in five consecutive contests.

Nov 19

4. Patrick Maroon
I.L.

Patrick Maroon (upper body) hopes to be back in the lineup soon.

Maroon skated on Monday morning, but won't play against Los Angeles. He isn't eligible to come off injured reserve yet.

Blais has not earned a point in eight games with the Blues this campaign.

Nov 15

6. Zach Sanford
Active

Zach Sanford generated one goal and two assists in a 7-3 win against Chicago on Saturday night.

Sanford made the most of his 12:09 of playing time to extend his point streak to four straight contests. He has three goals and three assists during that span. Sanford, who logged time with Ryan O'Reilly, could earn more responsibilities if he continues to produce like this.

Oct 28

RW 1. Vladimir Tarasenko
Active

Vladimir Tarasenko chipped in with a pair of assists, a plus-2 rating, four shots on goal, a blocked shot and a hit over 18:35 of ice time Friday in Vegas.

Tarasenko is in the midst of a six-game goal drought, trying a season high. However, he has still been productive posting six helped with a plus-5 rating during the span. The Russian winger also has four goals with 10 points across the past nine, so he is chipping in at better than a point-per-game clip over an extended period. Next up is a battle Saturday night in San Jose. He had an assist and plus-2 rating in a 4-0 win against the Sharks on Nov. 9 in St. Louis.

Nov 17

2. Alexander Steen

Nov 16

D 1. Alex Pietrangelo
Active

The St. Louis Blues were shut out 2-0 by the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.

It wasn't a great effort from the Blues offensively tonight. They didn't generate many great chances, and when they did, Calvin Petersen was up to the task at the other end. Two defensemen for the Blues tied for the team high for shots on goal with four apiece in this one (Alex Pietrangelo and Joel Edmundson).

Nov 19

2. Colton Parayko
Active

Colton Parayko (personal) did not practice on Tuesday.

However, Parayko is expected to be in Chicago for Wednesday's game, so he should be expected to play.

Active

Vince Dunn generated one goal and one assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to Winnipeg on Monday night.

Dunn netted his third goal of the season during a St. Louis power play in the second period. He gave the Blues a 3-1 lead going into the third, but the Jets rallied back to seize the victory. Dunn has four points in six contests.

Oct 23

5. Jay Bouwmeester
Active

Jay Bouwmeester accidentally scored in his own net during Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Blues netminder Jake Allen stopped Seabrook's initial shot, but the puck fell behind Bouwmeester. The Blues defenseman then back-heeled the puck into his own net. Unfortunately for him, that proved to be the game's only goal. The 35-year-old's has fallen off dramatically over the last few seasons. He's no longer the player he used to be.

Nov 14

6. Jordan Schmaltz
Active

Jordan Schmaltz will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday night when the Blues visit the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blues defenseman had dressed for three straight games, playing only 7:41 in the last game against the Minnesota Wild and drawing a conclusion he could be scratched. Nikita Soshnikov will also sit out after having dressed in two straight.

Gunnarsson is slated to be re-evaluated next week. He sustained an upper-body injury last Friday against Vegas and didn't skate Monday morning.

Nov 19

G 1. Jake Allen
Active

Jake Allen allowed one goal on 26 shots in Monday's 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

In a game where Allen needed to be perfect, he gave up a goal he'd like to have back to Matt Luff. With his team failing to score at the other end, Allen had no room for error and his only mistake resulted in a loss because he got no offensive support. His record falls to 5-5-3 with a 3.33 goals-against-average and a .893 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Chad Johnson
Active

Chad Johnson allowed four goals on 29 shots in Saturday's 4-0 loss at San Jose.

Johnson blanked the Sharks in his last meeting at home on Nov. 9, turning aside all 33 shots he faced in a 4-0 win. The Sharks turned the tables in this meeting in San Jose, and his four goals allowed was a season high. He is 2-4-0 with a 2.41 goals-against average with a .916 save percentage overall.

C 1. Steven Stamkos
Active

Steven Stamkos scored a couple of goals in Saturday’s 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

The Canadiens jumped out to an early 1-0 lead just 58 seconds into the game but a power play marker by Stamkos got the Lightning right back into it. Stamkos then put the game out of reach for Montreal with a goal 52 seconds into the final period, his fourth of the season. The 28-year-old center finds himself at 10 points in 13 games this season. J.T. Miller and Yanni Gourde also scored in the win.

Nov 19

3. Anthony Cirelli
Active

Anthony Cirelli scored the game-winning goal in overtime on Saturday afternoon against Philadelphia.

Tampa Bay coughed up a 5-1 lead in the third period, but some hard work by Cirelli in the offensive zone resulted in a 6-5 victory for the Lightning. He has four goals and seven points in 20 games this season.

Nov 17

4. Cedric Paquette
Sidelined

Cedric Paquette (undisclosed) won't play Monday night.

Paquette didn't participate in the morning skate and may have been hurt on a blocked shot against Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon. It's not believed to be a long-term issue, so consider him day-to-day for now.

Nov 19

5. Gabriel Dumont
Active

The Tampa Bay Lightning have claimed Gabriel Dumont off waivers from Ottawa.

Dumont started the season with Tampa Bay, but the Lightning put him on waivers on Nov. 21 and he was claimed by Ottawa, so this is a return to his former team. He has a goal and an assist in 30 games this season.

Feb 21

LW 1. Ondrej Palat
I.L.

Ondrej Palat is expected to miss four weeks because of an lower-body injury.

Active

J.T. Miller scored a goal and assisted on another in Thursday’s 4-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Miller was set up for a one-timer in the right circle by a gorgeous feed from Mikhail Sergachev for his fifth goal of the year, giving the Lightning a 2-1 lead midway through the second period. Miller then capped off his night with the primary assist on Steven Stamkos' empty-netter with 10 seconds left in regulation. After opening the first two games of the season without a point, Miller has 14 in 14 games. He’s eligible for all three forward positions in Yahoo and should be owned in more than just 54% of leagues.

3. Tyler Johnson

Tyler Johnson netted a goal in a 4-2 win against the Islanders Thursday night.

With that, Johnson is on a three-game point streak. He has six goals and 12 points in 15 contests this season.

Nov 9

4. Ryan Callahan
Active

Ryan Callahan recorded his first assist of the season on Saturday.

Callahan has just three points in 16 contests this season. When he was younger, Callahan's appeal was that he brought a nice blend of grit and skill to the table, but unfortunately he's ran into injury troubles in recent years and when he has been able to play, the offensive production hasn't been there. It doesn't help that his role has also dropped dramatically. He's averaging 12:05 minutes per game in 2018-19 compared to the 21-plus minutes he was logging in 2011-12 and 2013.

Nov 18

5. Mathieu Joseph
Active

Mathieu Joseph scored two goals and assisted on another in Saturday’s 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Tonight, was a sort of coming out party for Joseph, who has been buzzing and creating chances for the most part of the season, the puck just never seemed to find itself in the back of the net. The former fourth round pick has offensive talent, he just doesn’t get enough minutes to warrant fantasy consideration. He’s currently up to five goals and seven points in 18 games this season, with five coming in the last four games. Braydon Coburn and Victor Hedman also scored in the loss.

Nov 10

D 1. Victor Hedman

2. Ryan McDonagh
Active

Ryan McDonagh earned three assists in a 4-3 OT win over Ottawa on Sunday.

McDonagh had a hand in goals by Cedric Paquette, Brayden Point and Yanni Gourde in the match. Point's goal sent the game to overtime after McDonagh had a big takeaway at the blue line when it looked like the Senators were going to get a chance to seal the contest. He also helped set up Gourde's game winner. McDonagh has two three-point performances in his last four outings to give him 10 points in 14 games this year.

Nov 5

3. Mikhail Sergachev
Active

Mikhail Sergachev went scoreless in Saturday's 7-1 loss on the road against the Arizona Coyotes with a dismal minus-6 rating.

Sergachev entered the day with no goals, four assists and a plus-6 rating in his first nine games and he hadn't been in the negative in plus/minus rating all season. All of that good work was washed away in one evening for the Russian rearguard. He'll look to start working his way back into the positive on Tuesday night against the visiting New Jersey Devils.

Oct 28

4. Anton Stralman
Sidelined

Anton Stralman (upper body) will be out of the lineup on Monday night.

Stralman took part in the morning skate, but he wasn't expected to be ready to return. He has been out since Nov. 8 due to an upper-body injury.

Nov 19

5. Braydon Coburn
Active

Braydon Coburn potted two goals in Tuesday's 8-3 win over New Jersey.

The surprising surge of offense came in the first period to tie the game after the Devils jumped out to a 2-0 lead. It was Coburn's first multi-goal effort since 2009.

Oct 31

6. Dan Girardi
Active

Dan Girardi scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Boston Bruins.

Girardi was the unlikeliest of heroes for the Lightning, but he managed to come through in overtime. His game-winning tally was a little fluky, as it bounced off Bruins forward Brian Gionta before going off him and into the net. Girardi finished the night with a plus-2 rating, one shot on goal, four hits and four blocked shots in 21:12 of ice time. The 34-year-old has two goals and three points in nine games this postseason. The Bolts now lead this best-of-seven series 3-1. They'll have a chance to eliminate the Bruins in Tampa Bay on Sunday afternoon.

May 4

7. Slater Koekkoek
Active

Slater Koekkoek scored a goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

A nice hustle from Mathieu Joseph led directly to Koekkoek's first goal of the season. It was a tough night all-around from the Lightning who generated some solid chances, only to be turned away by Pekka Rinne. Despite being a former 10th overall pick, Koekkoek has no fantasy value.

Nov 1

8. Erik Cernak
Active

Erik Cernak will make his NHL debut on Tuesday night.

Cernak will be paired with Ryan McDonagh against Buffalo. He impressed at training camp despite not sticking with the team and will get a chance to play with Anton Stralman out.

Nov 13

G 1. Andrei Vasilevskiy
I.L.

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be out for four-to-six weeks with a broken foot.

Vasilevskiy has a 9-3-1 record, 2.29 GAA, and .927 save percentage in 13 games this season. If there's a silver lining, it's that this will give him a breather so that he's not worn out down the stretch.

Nov 16

2. Louis Domingue
Active

Louis Domingue allowed three goals on 34 shots in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Domingue gave up a bit of a weak goal to Kyle Turris but the Predators had moved the puck extremely well on the power play prior to that, never really allowing him to set his feet. Tampa's goaltender was then beat by Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen to fall behind 3-1. A deficit they could not overcome. Domingue's record falls to 5-3-0 with a 3.52 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage.

Nov 19

3. Edward Pasquale
Active

The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled Edward Pasquale from the minors.

The move makes sense considering Andrei Vasilevskiy (foot) is expected to miss a good amount of time. Pasquale has never suited up in an NHL game. The 27-year-old has 4-2-0 record with a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .896 save percentage this season in the AHL. He'll serve as Louis Domingue's backup for now.

Nov 15

C 1. John Tavares
Active

John Tavares scored a goal and assisted on another in Monday’s 4-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Tavares’ goal was sparked by a great heads up play by Marner who had the presence of mind to scoop his own rebound back to Tavares for the goal. Tavares then followed that up with an assist on Zach Hyman’s game-winner. JT is now up to 13 goals and 25 points in 21 games this season. Zach Hyman added another into an empty net and Tyler Ennis also scored.

Nov 19

2. Auston Matthews
I.L.

Auston Matthews (shoulder) is on the ice with the Maple Leafs for Sunday's practice.

Matthews is wearing a no-contact jersey though. He's been out for three weeks so far and was initially expected to miss at least four weeks, so his return isn't expected to be imminent.

Nov 18

3. Nazem Kadri
Active

Nazem Kadri posted two goals with a minus-1 rating on four shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings.

Kadri opened the scoring with a power-play goal just 2:42 into the game to beat Peter Budaj, and the put a bow on the scoring to make it 5-1 in the second period. He has caught fire to help pick up the slack with Auston Matthews (shoulder) on the shelf, posting seven goals with nine points (including three power-play goals) over the past nine outings.

Nov 14

4. Par Lindholm
Active

Par Lindholm recorded his first NHL point on Tuesday night.

Lindholm earned an assist on a goal by defenseman Ron Hainsey during Toronto's 7-4 win against Dallas. He shifted to the wing in the contest and played alongside Nazem Kadri.

Oct 10

5. Frederik Gauthier
Active

Frederik Gauthier will be scratched on Wednesday.

Gauthier wasn't able to claim the fourth-line center role at training camp and will be the 13th forward to start the year. The Leafs will also sit defensemen Justin Holl and Martin Marincin in the team's season opener.

Oct 3

LW 1. Patrick Marleau
Active

Patrick Marleau scored a goal in Thursday’s 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

It was a rough overall night from the Leafs who couldn’t muster up many great chances outside the ones Mitch Marner could create. They got a power play goal from Marleau with just over three minutes left in regulation but couldn’t muster up anything late to force overtime. It’s the veteran center’s second goal of the season, bringing him to six points in 13 games. It’s not time to push the panic button in Toronto, but they have only scored 12 goals in their last six games.

Nov 1

2. Zach Hyman
Active

There will be no lineup changes for the Maple Leafs Saturday night against Ottawa.

Toronto coach Mike Babcock will go with the exact lineup that won Wednesday's game against the Canadiens 3-2 in overtime. That means Zach Hyman will start on the second line with John Tavares and Mitch Marner while Tyler Ennis and Patrick Marleau will continue to play alongside Auston Matthews. Nazem Kadri will center the third unit featuring Connor Brown and Josh Leivo. Adjust your fantasy rosters accordingly.

Oct 6

3. Andreas Johnsson
Active

Andreas Johnsson will get back into the lineup on Monday night.

Johnsson has one assist in six appearances this campaign and he has been a healthy scratch for Toronto's last two games. He is projected to play with Par Lindholm and Connor Brown.

Oct 29

4. Josh Leivo
Active

Josh Leivo scored his first goal of the season on Saturday night against Washington.

Leivo got the game-winning goal at the 6:28 mark of the third period when he scored on a Toronto power play. He only logged 8:57 of ice time in the contest after he had a season-low 7:24 of action on Thursday against Detroit.

Oct 14

5. Tyler Ennis
Active

Tyler Ennis found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

It was his first goal as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it gave his team a 2-0 lead early in the second frame. The 29-year-old has picked up two points in seven games this season. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.

Oct 25

RW 1. Mitch Marner
Active

Mitch Marner collected three points, including two assists, in Thursday's 5-3 win over San Jose.

Marner had the primary helper on goals by John Tavares and Kasperi Kapanen (shorthanded) in the contest. He scored his sixth goal of the year after taking a long pass from goaltender Frederik Andersen during the third period to put the game out of reach. Marner has one goal and five assists over a three-game point streak and 25 points in 19 contests this season.

Nov 16

2. William Nylander
Active

The Toronto Maple Leafs and William Nylander are still in contact regarding a potential contract.

There's been increasing talk of Nylander being traded before we reach the Dec. 1 deadline, but there is still a chance that this will end with him signing with the Maple Leafs. It's extremely rare for the RFA process to drag on this deep into the season, but because he has to be signed by Dec. 1 or he's ineligible to play for the remainder of 2018-19, there will be some kind of conclusion in the next few weeks.

Nov 12

3. Kasperi Kapanen
Active

Kasperi Kapanen scored twice, including the game-winning goal, in a 5-3 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.

Kapanen went pointless in four previous games before scoring twice against the Sharks Thursday night. Kapanen's game-winner was a shorthanded marker, making it the first special teams goal (power play or penalty kill) he's scored all season. The Leafs also got goals from Mitch Marner, John Tavares, and Josh Leivo.

Nov 16

4. Connor Brown
Active

Connor Brown's teammates were happy that he scored against Vegas on Tuesday night.

Brown had just one goal going into that game, and it was scored into an empty net. "I was super happy for him when he got that goal," teammate Mitch Marner said. "He has had so many chances that just have not bounced his way. That was a pretty impressive shot to get flat-footed in front of your body and get it up that quick. I think it takes a lot of pressure off his back." The 24-year-old has two goals and six points in 15 games this season.

Nov 8

5. Nathan Horton
I.L.

Nathan Horton has been left off Toronto's training camp roster after failing his physical, he is also not with the team.

Horton, who suffers from a degenerative back condition that has prevented him from playing since the 2013-14 season, is expected to be placed on long-term injury reserve once the regular season begins. The move will relieve .3M of cap space, which will be useful for the Maple Leafs as they're currently just 5K below the ceiling.

Sep 17

D 1. Morgan Rielly
Active

Morgan Rielly bagged the game-winning goal in overtime on Friday night on the road against the Anaheim Ducks.

It was Rielly's second game-winning tally in overtime, his first since Oct. 7 in Chicago. He is working on a five-game point streak, posting three goals with seven points. Rielly hasn't went more than two games in a row without a point this season, picking up nine goals with 25 points and a plus-10 rating through 20 contests. He has emerged as a must-start fantasy option across the board.

Active

Jake Gardiner played in his 500th career game on Saturday night.

Gardiner scored his first goal of the season in Toronto's 3-2 comeback win over Winnipeg. He tallied the game-tying goal at the 16:49 mark of the third period and Kasperi Kapanen scored the game winner 26 seconds later. Gardiner has seven points after 11 contests.

3. Nikita Zaitsev
Active

Nikita Zaitsev picked up a pair of assists Monday in a 3-1 win over Boston in Game 6.

Zaitsev has struggled in his own end throughout the year, but he posted some good numbers on Monday night. He posted a plus-2 rating, three shots, four hits and one block in 21:16 of ice time.

Ron Hainsey will play in his 1,000th game on Thursday.

Active

Igor Ozhiganov will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

Ozhiganov will replace Martin Marincin, who will be a healthy scratch, against Los Angeles. Ozhiganov hasn't contributed a point in 13 games this season.

Nov 13

7. Justin Holl
Active

Justin Holl is projected to be a healthy scratch Saturday night against Pittsburgh.

Igor Ozhiganov is slated to take his place in the lineup. Nothing to see here from a fantasy perspective.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to scratch Martin Marincin on Monday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It's the fourth straight game he sits in the press box. Justin Holl will also sit.

G 1. Frederik Andersen
Active

Frederik Andersen stopped 37 of 39 shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Andersen was busy in this one, making plenty of saves, keeping his teammates in the game long enough for their to pull off a comeback down 2-0 after one period. It's his sixth straight win, improving his record to 12-5-0 with a 2.08 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage.

Nov 19

2. Garret Sparks
Active

Garret Sparks allowed just one goal on 39 shots in Friday's 2-1 overtime road victory against the Anaheim Ducks.

Sparks helped the Maple Leafs to their first three-game road sweep of the California teams since Dec. 12-17, 1995. Sparks kicked off the road trip in Boston, but was tattooed for five goals on 34 shots. He has been rather erratic this season, either getting creamed or looking sharp with no in between. The Leafs will face a back-to-back situation again on Friday in Columbus and Saturday at home against Philadelphia, so that's likely when you'll see Sparks next.

Nov 17

C 1. Bo Horvat
Active

Bo Horvat scored a goal in Vancouver's 6-2 loss to Minnesota on Thursday.

Horvat has been held off the scoresheet in just one of his last five games. He has 10 goals and 18 points in 21 contests in 2018-19.

Nov 16

2. Elias Pettersson
Active

Elias Pettersson scored a goal in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Working a power play, Pettersson took a feed from Ben Hutton and blasted one-timer in behind Carey Price. It’s Pettersson’s 11th goal of the season, breaking a four-game pointless skid. The 19-year-old rookie has been absolutely sensational this season. He leads the team in goals and is tied with Bo Horvat for the lead in points with 18. Michael Del Zotto also scored in the loss.

Nov 17

3. Brandon Sutter
I.L.

Brandon Sutter has a shoulder injury.

Vancouver is awaiting the results of an MRI. Once the team gets that, they expect to know how long Sutter will be out of action.

Oct 31

4. Jay Beagle
I.L.

Jay Beagle (broken forearm) is not expected to return until December.

Beagle was given a six-week timetable after he sustained a broken forearm on Oct. 13 against Florida. He has one assist in five games this year.

Nov 13

5. Adam Gaudette
Active

Adam Gaudette had an assist Thursday in a 4-1 loss to Arizona.

It was the first point of Gaudette's NHL career. The forward is highly regarded after a strong college career at Northeastern where he was Hockey East's player of the year last season. The Canucks stole him in 2015, selecting him at 149. He has a high ceiling at this time and should be grabbed in most leagues.

Oct 26

LW 1. Sven Baertschi
I.L.

Sven Baertschi skated on his own Saturday as he is still in concussion protocol.

Well that's a good step for the winger who has been out since October 24. He is still a ways away from returning. Baertschi had three goals and six points in 10 games before the injury.

Nov 19

2. Loui Eriksson
Active

Loui Eriksson had a goal and an assist in Vancouver's 4-3 shootout loss Saturday afternoon.

Eriksson has been red hot with four goals and seven points in his last four games. Jake Virtanen and Erik Gudbranson also each found the back of the net for Vancouver. Antoine Roussel registered two assists in the losing effort.

Nov 10

3. Antoine Roussel
Active

Antoine Roussel left practice early on Sunday but coach Travis Green expects him to play Monday.

Roussel apparently tweaked something at practice and left a bit early. He has three goals and eight points with 30 penalty minutes in 18 games this season.

Nov 19

4. Brendan Leipsic
Active

Brendan Leipsic is getting a shot on the Canucks' top line.

Leipsic has been all over the lineup this season and has also spent time as a healthy scratch. However, he had a goal and an assist on the fist line on Tuesday and is projected to stay in that role on Thursday versus Minnesota. "I’m trying to get my feet under me a little bit more," he said. "It’s been a roller-coaster start."

Nov 15

5. Brendan Gaunce
Active

Brendan Gaunce will not dress on Monday night against Winnipeg Jets.

Gaunce has three points in as many games this season but has found it hard to crack the lineup. This will be the seventh time he sits in Vancouver's last eight games. Alex Biega and Brendan Leipsic will also sit.

Nov 19

6. Tim Schaller
Active

Tim Schaller registered two assists in a 3-2 overtime win against Pittsburgh Tuesday night.

Schaller had been held off the scoresheet in his first three games with Vancouver. He had 12 goals and 22 points in 82 contests with Boston in 2017-18.

Oct 17

7. Darren Archibald
Active

Darren Archibald is expected to be a healthy scratch on Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens.

Archibald has a goal and two points in seven games. This will mark the fourth time that he sits this season. Brendan Gaunce will take his place in the lineup. Alex Biega will also sit.

Nov 17

RW 1. Brock Boeser
Sidelined

Brock Boeser (groin) skated before practice on Monday.

There was no update on his status, though. Coach Travis Green said that the team will see how Boeser feels on Tuesday. The Canucks have a three-game road trip in California after Monday's home match versus Winnipeg and it's unclear at this time if Boeser will travel with the team.

Nov 19

2. Jake Virtanen
Active

Jake Virtanen scored a pair of goals in the same game for the first time in his NHL career during a 4-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

Both of Virtanen's goals tied the game after Chicago took 1-0 and 2-1 leads during the first two periods of the game. His first of the game came on a breakaway following a Chicago turnover at the offensive blue-line and his second was scored on a one-timer from the high-slot. The 22-year old came very close to recording his first career hat-trick, but his shot just missed the net after the puck deflected off a defender. He now has three goals in his last two games and has amassed five goals and seven points so far this season.

3. Tyler Motte
Active

Tyler Motte will suit up for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.

Motte was scratched for Saturday's match versus Florida. He has one goal in three outings this campaign.

Oct 16

4. Sam Gagner
Active

Sam Gagner will be in the lineup on Monday night.

"His versatility is great up front," said coach Travis Green. "He'll play on the power play too. Our team is going through some adversity and Sam is a pro, he'll help with that." Gagner was called up from the minors on Sunday. He has posted seven goals and 15 points in 15 games with the AHL's Toronto Marlies this year.

Nov 19

5. Nikolay Goldobin
Active

Nikolay Goldobin scored a goal in Monday's 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

Goldobin opened the scoring at the 3:16 mark of the second period, when he came out of the penalty box, picked up the puck in the neutral zone, and fired it past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Unfortunately for the Canucks, it's the only offense they were able to muster on Monday. The 23-year-old has racked up six points in his last five contests. He's up to two goals and 10 points in 19 games this season. Tyler Motte and Ben Hutton registered the assists on Vancouver's only goal of the night.

Nov 12

D 1. Alexander Edler
I.L.

Alexander Edler (knee) will travel with the team to California.

However, it's unclear when Edler will be ready to return to the lineup. He has been out of action since Oct. 24 with an MCL sprain. Edler was initially given a three-to-six week timetable.

Nov 19

2. Chris Tanev
Active

Chris Tanev has declared himself good to go on Tuesday night.

Tanev said he will be back, so he probably won't be a game-time decision anymore. He missed five games due to a bruised hip.

Nov 6

3. Michael Del Zotto
Active

Michael Del Zotto will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday versus the Vegas Golden Knights.

Del Zotto dressed for the Canucks first two games of the season, going pointless and held without a shot on goal. Joining him in the press box will be Darren Archibald who hasn't dressed for the Canucks at all yet this season.

Oct 24

4. Erik Gudbranson
Active

Erik Gudbranson's point streak ended at five games on Monday.

The Canucks have to be thrilled that Gudbranson was able to put a point streak together at all. He's still accumulated six points in his last six games, which isn't too shabby for a guy that had five points in 52 games all of last season. He's not a recommended fantasy option at this time.

Nov 13

5. Ben Hutton
Active

Ben Hutton had a goal and an assist Thursday.

It was the fourth goal of the season for the defenseman who did not score last season in 61 games. He had only six helpers in 2017-18 and he has already matched his total points as he has two helpers this season. He is worth looking at in deep pools.

Nov 9

6. Troy Stecher
Active

Troy Stecher was able to play on Friday.

Stecher couldn't complete Wednesday's game after being in an on-ice collision with Chicago's Brandon Manning. He didn't end up missing a full contest, though, and even registered an assist Friday night.

Nov 3

7. Derrick Pouliot
Active

Derrick Pouliot took plenty of skating lessons in the off-season and looks quicker in training camp.

Pouliot is trying to grab a spot on the Canucks blueline and needs to improve his quickness and skating, something it looks like he has taken care of in the off-season. "I was very hard on him — but he took it all and no problems at all," his skating coach Barb Aidelbaum said. "And he was open to anything. If he did something wrong, it was doing it again and again and again. Once it was corrected, it was repeat, repeat, repeat. I looked how he skated in the first period and how he skated at the end. Sometimes, when players are tired, body position and stances change and that affects everything. He’s now faster forward, backward and sideways. We first worked on technique, then power and then speed and then putting it together in a conditioning program." Look for a 25-30 point season from Pouliot.

Alex Biega is not expected to play in Monday night's contest against the New York Rangers.

Biega has two assists in five games this season. Brendan Gaunce is also expected to miss the game.

Jacob Markstrom will be in goal for Monday's game against Winnipeg.

Markstrom has gone winless in his last four outings (0-3-1). His record has dropped to 7-6-2 on the season with a 3.27 goals-against average and .897 save percentage.

2. Anders Nilsson
I.L.

Anders Nilsson (finger) might start facing shots within the next couple days.

Nilsson last played on Oct. 25. He has a 3-3-0 record, 2.67 GAA, and .912 save percentage in six games this season.

Nov 9

3. Richard Bachman
Active

Richard Bachman was beaten six times on 29 shots in Thursday’s 6-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

It was a terrible game for Bachman who’s night can be summed up by his brutal giveaway right on Mikko Koivu’s stick from behind his own net in the first period. The Wild skated circles around the Canucks, creating plenty of chances, leaving Bachman with little to no chance tonight. He’ll drop his first games of the season. He owns a 6.00 goals-against-average and a .793 save percentage.

Nov 15

C 1. William Karlsson
Active

William Karlsson scored his fifth goal of the season Sunday.

The talented Karlsson is well below his pace of last season when he scored 43 times for the expansion Golden Knights with 35 assists. It has been different this season as he has only five in 21 games, although he does have 16 points.

Nov 19

2. Paul Stastny
I.L.

Paul Stastny (lower body) is expected to be out for up to two months.

This is a big blow to Vegas, which was already off to a rough 2-4-0 start. Vegas added Stastny on a three-year, .5 million contract over the summer. He had 16 goals and 53 points in 82 contests last season.

Oct 15

3. Erik Haula
I.L.

Erik Haula (lower body) is "month to month," according to coach Gerard Gallant.

Vegas moved Haula to injured reserve on Tuesday. He hasn't played since Nov. 6 due to a lower-body injury.

Nov 14

4. Cody Eakin
Active

With a pair of goals in a 5-0 win against the Ducks on Wednesday night, Cody Eakin extended his point streak to five games.

Eakin scored Vegas’ second and fourth goals of the game, with the latter being scored shorthanded and both came in the second period. Despite his recent success, in which he has collected four goals and two assists, the 27-year old is still owned in only 1% of fantasy leagues. Due to injuries to Stastny and Haula, Eakin has found his way onto Vegas’ second line and centers the likes of Max Pacioretty and Alex Tuch. It would be wise to get him into your lineups, at least until his production cools off for a few games or Stastny or Haula return.

Nov 15

LW 1. Max Pacioretty
Active

Max Pacioretty scored a powerplay goal in a 7-2 thumping against the Calgary Flames on Monday night.

The game was already way beyond reach for the Golden Knights when Pacioretty scored just over five minutes into the third period to make it a 7-2 game. It was only the 29-year old’s fourth goal and sixth point in what’s been a somewhat disappointing start to the season for both Pacioretty and the Golden Knights. However, he has recently been bumped up to the top line and has four points in as many games, so it’s worth keeping an eye out in case this becomes a trend.

Nov 19

2. Jonathan Marchessault
Active

Jonathan Marchessault picked up two goals and an assist in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Marchessault's power-play goal at the 4:33 mark of the second period gave the Golden Knights a 4-2 lead at the time. He then added his second tally of the game just 34 seconds into the third frame to make it 5-2 for his team. Marchessault registered the primary assist on linemate Reilly Smith's goal less than three minutes later. He finished the night with a plus-1 rating, five shots on goal and two hits in 17:52 of ice time. The 27-year-old had 10 goals and 18 points in 22 games this season. William Karlsson, Cody Eakin and Max Pacioretty also found the back of the net for the Golden Knights on Sunday night.

Oscar Lindberg will be a healthy scratch Friday night.

Lindberg is spending his ninth straight game in the press box. He has no points in six games.

Nov 16

4. William Carrier
Active

William Carrier's first goal of the season was his first since October 27, 2017.

It has been over a year for the winger who had three points in 37 games last season and now has two points this season in 14 contests. The Golden Knights won 3-0 on Saturday with all three goals were scored by players not expected to, including Ryan Reaves and Brad Hunt. Carrier has no fantasy value but it was nice to see him contribute offensively.

Nov 4

5. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare
Active

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had a goal and an assist Thursday in a 5-3 win over Ottawa.

The Golden Knights forward set up the winner by William Carrier and then scored the insurance goal. He has three goals and five points this season but is not worth a fantasy spot on your team.

Nov 9

6. Tomas Hyka
Active

Tomas Hyka is projected to play on the second line Tuesday night.

Hyka was on a combination with Max Pacioretty and Erik Haula during the morning skate. He doesn't have a point in two games with Vegas this campaign.

Oct 16

RW 1. Reilly Smith
Active

Reilly Smith scored once and added two assists in a 6-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers Sunday.

Smith finally broke out as he now has only four goals and 10 points in 21 contests after a 60 point season in 2017-18 in only 67 games. But like most Golden Knights this season, Smith has found himself slumping and struggling to maintain his offensive game that looked so wonderful last season. Perhaps this was a breakout game for Smith but we somehow doubt it.

Nov 19

2. Alex Tuch
Active

Alex Tuch picked up a couple of helpers in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Tuch started off his night with the secondary assist on Jonathan Marchesseault’s power play goal to open the scoring. Tuch then followed that up with another secondary assist, this time on Nick Holden’s first goal of the season. The 22-year-old winger missed the first eight games of the season due to a lower-body injury but has now picked up seven points in eight games this season. He’s available in 21% of Yahoo leagues and would make for a nice add if you’re looking for help on the wing.

Nov 8

3. Ryan Carpenter
Active

Ryan Carpenter will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

Carpenter has two assists in 13 games this season. Oscar Lindberg will also be in the press box against Toronto. Vegas will get Max Pacioretty back from injury and Tomas Hyka will remain the lineup.

Nov 6

4. Tomas Nosek
Active

Tomas Nosek will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Nosek has just one goal and one assist in 18 games this season. Brad Hunt and Jon Merrill will also watch the game from the press box.

Nov 18

5. Ryan Reaves
Active

Ryan Reaves scored his third goal of the season Sunday in a 4-3 overtime win over Ottawa.

The tenacious winger who is known more for his toughness and fighting style, is second among Vegas goal scorers this season, trailing only Jonathan Marchessault. His career high is seven and that certainly looks beatable. Take him if you are looking for penalty minutes and be thankful for the offense he is providing you.

Oct 29

6. David Clarkson
I.L.

David Clarkson (back) does not have a stall set up in the Golden Knights' locker room at City National Arena.

Clarkson hasn't been medically cleared to play yet, but Vegas GM George McPhee said the team is awaiting the results of Thursday's physicals before making a decision on how to proceed. It's not expected that Clarkson will be available for the upcoming season. He hasn't played since March 2016 and his career could be over because of a back injury.

Sep 15

D 1. Nate Schmidt
Active

Nate Schmidt is expected to be paired with Shea Theodore on Sunday.

Looks like Vegas has no intention of easing Schmidt back into the lineup. He's making his season debut after completing his 20-game suspension for violating the NHL/NHLPA's Performance Enhancing Substances Program.

Nov 18

2. Colin Miller
Active

Colin Miller assisted on three goals in the Golden Knights 6-3 win in Edmonton.

The defenseman had 41 points last season but had struggled early on with only two assists in 15 games. He has turned things around of late with seven helpers in his last six games. He has yet to score after potting 10 last season but that will come soon enough for the defenseman. He is worth a pickup at this time.

Nov 19

3. Shea Theodore
Active

Shea Theodore has signed a seven-year contract with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Theodore's new deal has an average annual value of .2 million. He had been a holdout at training camp. Theodore recorded 29 points in 61 games last season and he posted 10 points over 20 playoff contests.

Nick Holden has signed a two-year, .4 million contract with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Brad Hunt is expected to be scratched on Wednesday against Anaheim.

Hunt has played well for Vegas in nine appearances this season, while contributing five points. His return to the press box is a bit surprising.

Active

Jimmy Oligny has signed on with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Terms were not disclosed. The 25-year-old rearguard, who has yet to play in the NHL, registered 12 points in 66 games with the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL. He also amassed 135 penalty minutes and will provide depth to the Vegas blueline this upcoming season. At this point, Oligny has no fantasy value.

Jul 1

G 1. Marc-Andre Fleury
Active

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 of 32 shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

The Oilers had a 2-1 lead heading into the second period, but the Golden Knights ended up scoring five unanswered goals and never looked back. Fleury has now rattled off two wins in his last three games. He owns a 9-8-1 record with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season. The Golden Knights got off to a rocky start this year, but Fleury will continue to be a good number one goalie in standard fantasy leagues.

Nov 18

2. Malcolm Subban

Malcolm Subban will be in goal on Monday night against the Calgary Flames.

Subban is getting the start on the second half of a back-to-back after Vegas got the win over Edmonton last night. He has yet to win a game this season, posting a 0-3-0 record, a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .885 save percentage.

Nov 19

C 1. Nicklas Backstrom
Active

Nicklas Backstrom scored the game-winning goal in overtime Friday against Philipp Grubauer and the Colorado Avalanche while adding an assist in his 20:59 of ice time.

Backstrom admitted to having a difficult time scoring on Grubauer when the two were teammates, but he didn't have trouble in this one. "I used to struggle scoring on him in practice against Grubauer," Backstrom said. "He was probably used to me passing, too. Tom (Wilson) gave me a good pass and I was able to get the shot off." It was Backstrom's sixth multi-point showing of the season, giving him five goals and 22 points with a plus-5 rating through 19 outings.

Nov 17

2. Evgeny Kuznetsov
Sidelined

Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) will not play Monday and seems unlikely to play Wednesday.

Kuznetsov, who is suspected to be dealing with a concussion, didn't skate on Monday morning and hasn't been back on the ice yet. Washington will be off on Tuesday, so a return on Wednesday doesn't seem likely either. He is considered to be day-to-day.

Nic Dowd is a healthy scratch on Friday.

It will be Dowd's third consecutive game as a scratch. He has a goal and an assist in 12 games this season.

4. Lars Eller
Active

Lars Eller skated on the top line with Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson on Friday night.

Eller got the promotion because of an upper-body injury to Evgeny Kuznetsov. He didn't earn a point in Washington's 3-2 OT win over Colorado, but he did have three shots and one hit in 20:48 of ice time.

Nov 17

5. Chandler Stephenson
Active

Chandler Stephenson is slated to play with Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie on Wednesday night.

Stephenson joined the top-six forward group on Monday because coach Todd Reirden was looking for a defensive conscience. He has one goal and two assists in 13 games this year.

Nov 7

LW 1. Alex Ovechkin
Active

Alexander Ovechkin scored two goals in Monday’s 5-4 overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Tom Wilson did well to show like he was going to shoot, instead finding Ovechkin all alone for the goal. The Russian winger then followed that up with a power play marker to tie the game at four to start the third period. It’s Ovechkin’s 31st career goal against the Canadiens in 47 games, and his 21st on Carey Price. The 33-year-old winger now finds himself at 15 goals and 23 points in 20 games this season. Brett Connolly, Nicklas Backstrom and Lars Eller (OT winner) also scored in the win.

Nov 19

Andre Burakovsky played on the second line with Nicklas Backstrom and Jakub Vrana on Friday night.

Nov 17

3. Jakub Vrana
Active

Jakub Vrana scored a goal in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Vrana opened the scoring at the 13:00 mark of the first period, when he beat Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck with a perfect wrist-shot from the slot. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 18:31 of ice time. The 22-year-old now has five goals and nine points in 18 games this season. Madison Bowey and Dmitry Orlov registered the assists on the Capitals' only goal.

Nov 14

RW 1. T.J. Oshie
Sidelined

T.J. Oshie (upper body) will not play Monday night.

Oshie was not on the ice for the morning skate. Washington is off Tuesday and he has skated since he was slammed to the ice on Friday. It doesn't seem likely that Oshie will be ready to play Wednesday. He is listed as day-to-day.

2. Tom Wilson
Active

Tom Wilson has been forced to play a different game since returning from a 14-game suspension last week.

Wilson has been suspended four times since the start of training camp in 2017. "There are definitely hits already that you kind of see," Wilson said. "I’ve never been a guy that’s going out there and flying elbows, sticking legs out or spearing guys. I’ve been trying to make hard, good, clean body checks. The game is so fast now and guys are moving all over the place when there are big collisions … sometimes there are injuries. I just have to make sure I’m staying away from those and helping the team offensively, helping my game kind of keep developing, being a good well-rounded player. The physical stuff will always kind of be part of my nature, but for now, I have to make sure that I’m staying on the ice." Wilson has a goal and three points in three games with seven penalty minutes.

This was Boyd's first game of the season, after he missed the first 12 contests because of a lower-body injury. He picked up helpers on goals by Jakub Vrana and Devante Smith-Pelly. Even though he's off to a nice start, he won't be worth picking up in any fantasy format.

Matt Niskanen scored a goal during Friday's 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Niskanen blew a power-play goal right past Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to tie the game at one at the 7:53 mark of the second frame. Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov picked up the assists on Washington's only goal. Niskanen finished the night with four shots on goal, two hits and two takeaways in a game-high 28:29. He was forced to play so much because the Capitals didn't have John Carlson in their lineup tonight. Niskanen now has three goals and five assists in 15 games this season.

Active

Dmitry Orlov scored two goals and picked up an assist in Tuesday’s 5-2 win over the Minnesota Wild

Orlov started off his night with a beautiful snipe for his first goal of the season. The Russian blueliner then picked up a primary assist on Tom Wilson’s first of the season before Alex Ovechkin set him up with a great cross-ice feed for a one-timer to give the Capitals a 4-1 lead in the third period. The three-point night breaks a five-game pointless streak for Orlov. The Russian rearguard has just five points in 17 games this season.

Michal Kempny (illness) got back in the fold for Washington on Friday night.

5. Brooks Orpik
I.L.

Brooks Orpik (lower body) has been moved to the long-term injured reserve list.

Braden Holtby stopped all 22 shots he faced in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Holtby entered the game for starter Phoenix Copley after the latter gave up four goals, including the last three in a span of 95 seconds to start the second period. Holtby came in for his first action since missing two games due to an upper-body injury, looking really solid. His record improves to 6-5-2 with a 3.07 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.

2. Pheonix Copley
Active

Pheonix Copley will get the nod on Monday night.

This will be Copley's fourth straight start, but Braden Holtby is expected to serve as the backup after recovering from an upper-body injury. Copley has won three of his four outings this month and he has allowed just two goals against in each appearance.

C 1. Mark Scheifele
Active

Mark Scheifele scored a power-play goal in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals.

Scheifele's power-play tally at the 5:05 mark of the second period tied the game at one. It ended up being the first of three unanswered goals for the Jets. The 25-year-old has seven points in his last three games, and he's picked up at least one point in nine of his last 10 contests. He's up to 10 goals and 10 assists in 17 games this season. Scheifele continues to be a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Bryan Little tallied the game-winning goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-1 victory versus Vancouver.

Little scored a power-play goal at the 4:58 mark of the third period and it held up as the game winner. He got his first assist of the year on a goal by Dustin Byfuglien during the third period. After a slow start to the year, Little has three points in the past three matches.

Oct 19

3. Adam Lowry
Active

Adam Lowry has been playing alongside Patrik Laine at even strength for the past few games.

"I don't want to say it changes the style of our line, but it does," Lowry said. "You go from playing a real heavy, grinding game, a real style along the wall and try to wear down the other team. Now you've got a pure shooter who plays a little differently." The third member of the combination is Brandon Tanev. Laine has been generating some chances, but he has done his scoring on the power play.

Nov 6

4. Andrew Copp
Active

Andrew Copp got his first goal of the season on Thursday night.

Copp gave the Jets a 3-1 lead late in the third period in an eventual 4-1 victory versus the Vancouver Canucks. He has two points in the last two games after he didn't get on the scoresheet in his first five outings.

LW 1. Kyle Connor
Active

Kyle Connor found the back of the net in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Connor received a pass from Patrik Laine on a two-on-one break before he beat Sabres goalie Carter Hutton. The 21-year-old has scored in back-to-back games and in three of his last four outings. He's also riding a four-game point streak. Connor and Laine both managed to score in the shootout, but the Jets came up just short in their quest for two points tonight. Connor has nine goals and seven assists in 18 games this season. He's on pace to score 41 goals and 73 points, which would surpass his career-high of 31 goals and 57 points from last year.

2. Nikolaj Ehlers
Active

Nikolaj Ehlers has been playing well alongside Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler.

The trio has combined for seven goals and 19 points over the past three games. Ehlers has three markers and one assist during that stretch. His promotion has bumped Kyle Connor to a combination with Bryan Little and Mathieu Perreault.

Nov 14

3. Mathieu Perreault
Active

Coach Paul Maurice expects Mathieu Perreault to play on Wednesday night.

Perreault left practice early after taking an accidental hip check in the neutral zone from Nic Petan. It was more of a collision than a hit and it left Perreault favoring his right leg.

Nov 13

4. Brandon Tanev
Active

Brandon Tanev received a boarding major and game misconduct on Monday night after he hit St. Louis' Ryan O'Reilly from behind during the second period.

It's a play that could be reviewed by the league, but may not result in any supplemental discipline. Tanev has one goal, three assists and 31 hits in nine games this season.

Wheeler helped set up Mark Scheifele's power-play goal in the second period, which tied the game at one. The Jets captain has now picked up at least one point in 11 consecutive games. He finished the night with one shot on goal in 20:44 of ice time. The 32-year-old has three goals and 24 points in 17 games this season. His goal total is a little low, but his point production has been elite all year. Ben Chiarot and Kyle Connor also found the back of the net for Winnipeg on Wednesday night.

Nov 14

2. Patrik Laine
Active

Patrik Laine will continue to skate on the Jets third line.

Laine has been playing with Adam Lowry and Brandon Tanev. "He’s adapted himself to the two guys he’s playing with," head coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday. "I’m not sure I have that long-term, but it’s the right direction for his personal game. A little harder, more direct." Laine will continue to be an elite scorer no matter who he plays with, but putting him other offensive guys would certainly help. He has seven goals and nine points in 14 games this season. He's on pace to surpass the 40-goal mark again.

Nov 8

3. Jack Roslovic
Active

Jack Roslovic scored his first goal of the season on Sunday in a 5-2 win over New Jersey.

Roslovic opened the scoring 3:02 into the first period. He was popular sleeper candidate going into the season, but hasn't been given much of a chance. The 11:59 of ice time he received on Sunday was a season-high. It was hoped he would get a chance to center the second line, but he hasn't been given that opportunity. Roslovic only has three points in 15 games.

Nov 12

4. Brendan Lemieux
Active

Brendan Lemieux will sit out Wednesday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Nov 15

5. Dmitry Kulikov
I.L.

Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Kulikov last played on Nov. 9. He's expected to be out for the at least a month, so it makes a lot of sense to put him on the IR list.

Nov 12

6. Ben Chiarot
Active

Ben Chiarot scored the game-winner in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals.

Chiarot's shot went off John Carlson and into the net. The goal gave the Jets a 2-1 lead at the 12:51 mark of the third frame. The 27-year-old now has three goals and five points in 17 contests this season. He shouldn't pop up your on fantasy radar.

Nov 15

7. Joe Morrow
Active

Joe Morrow appears as though he will draw into the lineup on Sunday night.

Morrow left the ice with most of the regulars, while recent call-up Sami Niku stayed on the ice for extra work with Brendan Lemieux. It looks like Morrow will replace injured defender Dmitry Kulikov versus New Jersey.

Nov 11

Connor Hellebuyck will be in the crease Monday night against Vancouver.

Hellebuyck has registered victories in his last three outings and he has allowed two goals or less in each match. He has posted a record of 8-5-1 this season with a 2.72 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.

2. Laurent Brossoit
Active

Laurent Brossoit allowed one goal on 32 shots in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Brossoit blanked the Sabres through two periods and he turned aside all 26 shots at even strength, but he ended up giving up a power-play goal to Jeff Skinner early in the third frame. That Skinner goal ended up tying the game. The Jets got two goals in the shootout, but the Sabres were able to come away with the win because Jack Eichel, Jason Pominville and Conor Sheary all beat Brossoit in the shootout. The 25-year-old's record now falls to 3-0-1 on the season. He owns a 1.47 goals-against-average and a .959 save percentage this season.
