1 year agoOttawa Senators winger Bobby Ryan has six points in his last five games since returning to the lineup from a hand injury. Ryan had a goal and two assists on Friday in a surprise win over the Golden Knights. He was involved early, chipping in on Mark Stone’s 20th tally just over two minutes into the game and also scored early in the second period. Ottawa only plays three games this week, but Ryan could be worth a look, especially as a potential spot start against Buffalo on Thursday or Calgary Friday.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: CBS Sports
1 year agoBoston Bruins forward Riley Nash has four points in his last three games, skating alongside Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. He was held off the score sheet in Boston’s overtime win against Montreal on Saturday, but factored into the Bruins' offense with back-to-back multi-point games prior to the weekend. Nash slides into the first-line center role in the wake of Patrice Bergeron’s foot injury. With Bergeron out at least another week, Nash figures to have ample opportunity to keep up with his current success. Boston plays Detroit on Tuesday and have a home-and-home series with Chicago over the weekend. Nash should prove an attractive fantasy start this week playing against struggling teams.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoDallas Stars center Radek Faksa is considered day-to-day with a lower body injury. Faksa has 27 points in 64 games this season, averaging 14 minutes of time on the ice. Rookie Roope Hintz will be making his debut Monday in place of Faksa. The Finnish winger, drafted 49th overall in 2015, is having a solid season in Texas with 15 goals and 12 assists in 55 games. Currently, Hintz will likely slot in to the third line to fill the opening. This is likely an emergency situation, but the Stars have gone 5-4-1 in their last 10 games and need some secondary scoring.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoDetroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard gave up three goals on 26 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Sunday. Howard looked strong for half the game, making several impressive saves through the first and second periods and only allowed goals on redirected shots. Detroit’s offense couldn’t provide relief to the 33-year-old, however, and surrendered a late empty-net goal to Jason Zucker. Howard has been tabbed as the clear No. 1 since Detroit traded away Petr Mrazek to the Philadelphia Flyers and has started each of the Red Wings last seven games. During this time, Howard has only won two games, however, and posted a 2.57 goals-against average. While his performance is middling at best, his consistent playing time may be valuable in deeper leagues where starting goalies may be hard to come by. Detroit returns to action Tuesday night against the surging Boston Bruins.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoBuffalo Sabres goaltender Chad Johnson will start on Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Toronto will be looking to bounce back from a rough 5-2 loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals on Saturday night. Johnson has won his last two games, surrendering just one goal each to the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Boston Bruins. The 31 year-old career backup has started five of the Sabres last 11 games and has recently been sharing starts with Buffalo’s other netminder, Robin Lehner. During that stretch, Johnson has earned four wins and has posted a 1.70 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage. Buffalo will play Calgary on Wednesday and Ottawa on Thursday this week, meaning Johnson will get at least one more start this week. If you are in need of a streaming goaltender option and are willing to take a chance on a shaky Buffalo team, Johnson may been worth an add.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoSan Jose Sharks goalie Martin Jones had a nightmare on Sunday against Columbus, giving up three goals on 13 shots before being pulled early in the second period. His poor play turned out to be costly for the team, as the Jackets ran out 4-2 winners. Jones is having a down year this season, giving up a career-high 2.54 goals per game. Luckily for the Sharks, they have Aaron Dell, who's been outstanding as a backup and who stopped all 14 shots he faced on Sunday. The Sharks now have two days off before facing the Blues on Thursday, a team who Jones recently beat with a 31-save performance.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoSan Jose Sharks left wing Evander Kane kept racking up the points in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Columbus, getting his first goal for the team in the process. Kane, who picked up an assist on San Jose's first goal, made it 3-2 in the middle of the final frame. He now has five points in three games since joining the Sharks, as he's fitted nicely into the top line alongside Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi, who also scored on Sunday. Kane is well on his way to a strong finish to the season, looking to add to 21 goals and 45 points.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoVegas Golden Knights left wing David Perron finished with a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-2 win over New Jersey to post a new career high in points. He now has 59 points to his name, which betters his 57 points achieved as an Oiler in 2013-14. Perron has registered 16 goals and is tied for the team lead with 43 assists for the Knights, with 15 points coming on the power play. Vegas plays Columbus next on Tuesday, a team that has struggled killing penalties this season (77.1 percent), so Perron could be set for another good performance. He had two assists against the Jackets in the first meeting of the season.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoVegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury ended a brief losing streak on Sunday against the New Jersey Devils, finishing with 33 saves and a .943 save percentage in a 3-2 win. He had lost his previous two starts, and amazingly a two-game losing run is actually his longest of the season. The former Penguin has been really solid throughout the year with 22 wins in 33 starts, a 2.24 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage. His numbers dipped a bit in February, but beating Taylor Hall and the dangerous Devils should boost Fleury's confidence ahead of a trip to Columbus, which is the Knights second stop on a four-game road trip.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoDallas Stars forward Alexander Radulov scored the tying goal and added five shots on net in the Stars overtime win against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. Radulov is experiencing his best season in the NHL playing on Tyler Seguin's wing, matching a career high with 56 points on the season. He is seeing some of the best deployment of his career, averaging 19:39 minutes of time on the ice and even though head coach Ken Hitchcock has them playing on separate lines for now, Seguin, Jamie Benn and Radulov will be reunited soon. He has been great in all formats, so make sure Radulov stays in your lineup.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Corsica
1 year agoVegas Golden Knights left wing Tomas Tatar scored his first goal for the team in Sunday's 3-2 win over New Jersey. His power-play strike near the end of the second period ended up being the game-winner as well. He's playing on the second power-play unit alongside Erik Haula and David Perron, who are also his linemates. Tatar's start for the club wasn't pretty, as he was even an ugly minus-three in his second outing against the Senators, but he should be able to pick it up soon. The Knights are in Columbus on Tuesday, and Tatar has scored one of his 17 goals this season against the Jackets.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoSt. Louis Blues defensemen Jay Bouwmeester has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a left hip injury. Bouwmeester has played only 35 games this season, posting two goals and five assists. Even though his statistics are not great for fantasy purposes, he has been a cornerstone on the back line for St. Louis, averaging 20 minutes of time on the ice. Bouwmeester has not been fantasy relevant this year, but his injury could mean good news for Colton Parayko to move up to the top line. Count on Parayko to see an increase in deployment, at least on even strength.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: St. Loius Blues Twitter
1 year agoMinnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker scored twice on Sunday in a 4-1 win versus the Red Wings. The California native continues to build upon his breakout season, having now registered 53 points (28 goals and 25 assists) in 66 games. Zucker is rewarding fantasy owners who took a gamble on him late in drafts (average Yahoo! draft position of 164.7) or were able to pluck him out of free agency early in the season. Despite being ranked as a top-100 skater in most league formats, Zucker is still surprisingly owned in just 72 percent of Yahoo! leagues. The speedy winger now has nine points in his past five games and might serve as a valuable option down the stretch for fantasy owners. If you own him, ride the hot streak and make sure he is a mainstay in your lineup moving forward.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoDallas Stars forward Jason Spezza is eighth on the team in points with only 24 points in 64 games. At this point last year, he had 46 points. Every year he seems to slip further behind, as he had 63 points the season before that. Spezza maintains a 6.1 percent shooting rate and his deployment has been minimal with 13:10 average time on ice. Spezza has moved up to the first line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, but do not let that fool you, as he remains a bad fantasy asset and should be avoided in all formats.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
1 year agoDetroit Red Wings forward Anthony Mantha went without a point once again, and this leaves him with one point in his last seven games. Like his linemates, Dylan Larkin and Justin Abdelkader, Mantha has had troubles producing at a consistent rate this season in the top-six group of forwards. The Detroit Red Wings only play three games next week, so if you are in need of more games for your upcoming playoff matchups, Mantha is not a must-own right now.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
