1 year agoWinnipeg Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck made 33 saves on 35 shots in the loss against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday. Hellebuyck put forth a valiant effort against the Flyers, posting a .943 save percentage, but ultimately could not hold on in a close game. He has already made franchise history as the best goalie to dress for the Jets, going 3-1-0 with a 2.27 goals-against average and .938 save percentage in his last four starts. Hellebuyck will face the rocky but strong Washington Capitals and Philipp Grubauer, who has done an excellent job filling in for Braden Holtby. With the Jets in a playoff spot, head coach Paul Maurice will likely rest Hellebuyck as the Jets play four games this week. Look for Michael Hutchinson to start in net Tuesday, as Steve Mason is injured once again.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Ken Wiebe
1 year agoCalgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano scored his third goal in the last four games on Sunday against the Islanders to make it 13 goals for the season. The Flames captain now needs just two more goals to share the league's top goal-scoring honor among defensemen with teammate Dougie Hamilton and P.K. Subban. Giordano already has more goals than he did in the entire 2016-17 campaign (12) and he's close to surpassing last year's points tally (39) as well, sitting currently on 36. Calgary hosts the fourth Battle of Alberta of the season on Tuesday, with Giordano looking to score in back-to-back games against the Oilers.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoCalgary Flames left wing Johnny Gaudreau reached a new career high in points on Sunday, ending a seven-game goal drought and picking up an assist in a 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders. He now has 79 points for the season, one more than the previous personal best set in 2015-16. Johnny Hockey has been adding up points in a hurry lately, getting six on a four-game streak, and he now shares the league lead in assists with Blake Wheeler and Jakub Voracek, as all three are sitting on 58 helpers. Gaudreau will face the Oilers next on Tuesday, a team against whom he has three points in three games this season.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoWinnipeg Jets forward Paul Stastny was acquired from the St. Louis Blues in late February and has been fitting in nicely. Stastny has two goals and five assists in six games, including an assist in Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers. He has been gelling with linemates Patrick Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers together, as the line has combined for 10 points (six goals, four assists) in the last three games. Stastny is currently shooting at 20 percent and right now he has the advantage of playing on the first-line power-play unit. Winnipeg plays four games this week, so if you have him in your lineup, keep him rolling. If not, now might be a good time to get him in your lineup.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
1 year agoMontreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher is a player that should be considered in all weekly formats this week. Montreal plays back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday and four games total this week, giving fantasy owners a chance to pick up an extra game or two to start their week. Gallagher ranks near the top of the league in shots on goal with 227 and has four points in his last five games. Playing on Montreal's first line and top power-play line will ensure that he continues to build on his shot and point totals. At the very least, consider streaming him into your lineup for Monday and Tuesday to take advantage of Montreal's front-loaded schedule this week.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoOttawa Senators center Matt Duchene struggled initially after being traded to the Senators, but has seemingly settled into his role now. After failing to record a point in his first seven games with Ottawa, Duchene has not been held without a point in consecutive games since the beginning of January. That streak has continued with four points in his last five games, and Duchene will look to build on that this week with four games on the schedule. Those four games include back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday to start the week. Duchene's production combined with Ottawa's schedule this week makes him a smart add in weekly formats looking to maximize games played.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoDetroit Red Wings forward Anthony Mantha has enjoyed quite a bit of scoring success while on the road this season. Mantha has scored 13 of his 23 goals while away from home and is enjoying a tremendous 17.8 percent shooting percentage in those games. There are only 20 players in the league this season with more goals in away games than Mantha, which should make him a focus for fantasy players, as Detroit has a four-game road trip this week. He is available in 62 percent of Yahoo leagues and is worth a look in daily and weekly formats this week, especially with a schedule that features back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoVancouver Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom is set to start the final game of the week on Sunday against the Arizona Coyotes after being the first guy off the ice in the morning skate. Markstrom missed the team's last game, as he wasn't feeling well, according to head coach Travis Green. It's Markstrom's second start of the week against the Coyotes after facing them on home ice in Wednesday's 2-1 loss, which he finished with 32 saves and a .941 save percentage. The Canucks have been awful for a while away from home, but Markstrom has won both his previous two road starts against Arizona.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Jeff Paterson
1 year agoArizona Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper will play for a second consecutive day on Sunday, with Antti Raanta (lower body) still not ready to return. Kuemper allowed five goals on Saturday against Colorado, finishing with an .839 save percentage in a 5-2 loss. His record for the Coyotes dropped to 1-2-1 and his overall record for the season now reads 11-3-4. The Coyotes host Vancouver, who Kuemper beat with a 16-save effort on Wednesday. It's a solid matchup for him, as the Canucks have won only four road games since December, though one of those came in Glendale on Feb. 25 with a 3-1 result.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Chris Morgan
1 year agoCalgary Flames goalie Mike Smith (lower body) is expected to be back in the crease on Sunday, as he was taken off the Injured Reserve. Smith is having a great debut season in Calgary, carrying a 23-16-6 record in 47 starts with a 2.53 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage. The Flames face the slumping Isles, who Smith actually played last before his month-long injury break, stopping 23 of 25 shots (.920 save percentage) in a 3-2 win. He should be a very strong fantasy option in goal Sunday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Calgary Sun
1 year agoFlorida Panthers forward Micheal Haley fought New York Rangers enforcer Cody McLeod on Saturday night, earning his fourth fighting major in six games. Haley has a league-leading 194 penalty minutes so far this season and is not slowing down as the season comes to a close. The fourth-liner does not contribute much in any category other than penalty minutes, but for leagues that count penalties, it is difficult to consistently do better than Haley. Florida plays against Boston and Edmonton this upcoming week, who rank fifth and seventh in major penalties, respectively. With that schedule, it would not be surprising to see more of the same from Haley.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoFlorida Panthers forward Frank Vatrano scored his first goal with his new team in a shootout win over the New York Rangers on Saturday night. Vatrano had been recovering from an ankle injury since being traded from the Boston Bruins at the trade deadline, but appears to be fully healed after logging 19:05 of time on ice on Florida's second line. Playing alongside Jonathan Huberdeau and Vincent Trocheck should provide plenty of scoring opportunities for Vatrano going forward, and recording five shots on goal in his first game is even more promising. Vatrano is also eligible at all three forward positions, so he offers lineup flexibility as well as upside. As long as he stays on Florida's second line and second power-play unit, he will be worth roster consideration.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoBoston Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin stopped 36 shots but allowed two goals late in the third period in a 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday afternoon. Khudobin had looked great through the first 55 minutes of the game, allowing just one goal in the first period while the Bruins were killing a penalty. The Bruins offense managed to tie the game halfway through the third period before allowing another power-play goal to Chicago forward Patrick Kane with just over three minutes to go. Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook sealed the deal with a snap shot roughly two minutes later. Khudobin continues to show that he is a solid fantasy option, even though he is Boston’s No. 2 goaltender behind Tuukka Rask. With the large amount of games remaining in the season and the Bruins maintaining their grasp on second place in the Atlantic, you can expect Rask to receive more rest and Khudobin to earn more starts. Khudobin now maintains a 15-4-4 record with a 2.45 goals-against average and .918 save percentage this season.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoToronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen posted a solid performance against the Pittsurgh Penguins on Saturday, earning a 5-2 win. Entering the match, Andersen had surrendered 10 goals in his previous two starts and was looking to get back on track against the reigning Stanley Cup champions. The 28-year-old goaltender faced plenty of shots in the contest, making 38 saves. The win improves Andersen’s record to 33-18-5 with a 2.76 goals-against average and .919 save percentage. The Maple Leafs have 13 games remaining in the regular season, beginning with a match against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoBoston Bruins forward Brian Gionta has recorded six points in the five games he’s played since being signed by the Bruins on Feb. 25. Gionta added his fourth and fifth points on Saturday during a 7-4 win by the Bruins over the Chicago Blackhawks. The 39-year-old veteran earned the attention of NHL teams while playing for the United States in this year’s Olympics and has certainly settled in nicely with Boston’s third line and second power-play unit. With the Bruins playing a league-high 16 games to end the regular season and Gionta’s production, the forward should remain on your watch list and potentially your roster throughout the fantasy playoffs.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource: DailyFaceoff.com, NHL.com
