  • Patrick Marleau SJ C
    Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Posts milestone goal in OT loss
    8h ago

    Patrick Marleau posted a goal with a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss against the Bruins.

    Marleau tied Joe Mullen for 43rd place all-time with his 502nd career goal. He snapped a three-game scoreless skid with the marker. The veteran has been terribly inconsistent this season, but he remains a fantasy must-have for his ability to pick up points in bunches.

    Bruins' Jimmy Hayes: Reaches milestone in Sunday's win
    8h ago

    Jimmy Hayes posted an assist with a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot and two hits in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win against the Sharks.

    The assist was the 100th point of his career. Hayes managed just two goals and an assist over his first 41 games but he has two helpers over the past three outings. His fantasy appeal remains limited to the deepest of formats until he starts to find his way onto the scoresheet with more frequency.

    Sharks' Martin Jones: On short end of overtime decision
    8h ago

    Martin Jones allowed two goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss against the Bruins.

    While the result was the same in the loss column, Jones was much better than his previous outing Wednesday against the Panthers when he coughed up six goals on just 22 shots. He has been a bit shaky lately but Sunday's improvement should give fantasy owners hope heading into the new week.

  • Brad Marchand BOS LW
    Bruins' Brad Marchand: Turns on lamp in San Jose
    9h ago

    Brad Marchand picked up the game-winning goal in overtime with a plus-1 rating in Sunday's contest against the Sharks.

    Marchand has been on fire since Jan. 5 with 15 goals and 29 points over the past 20 outings. He'll probably be sad the B's do not face the Sharks again this season, as he lit the lamp in each of the meetings. His longest point drought this season is two games on two different occasions. Fantasy owners have enjoyed Marchand's consistent production all year, but he really has taken it to another level recently.

    Bruins' Kevan Miller: Sacrifices body in OT victory
    9h ago

    Kevan Miller was scoreless in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win against the Sharks with four blocked shots.

    Miller doesn't offer much in the way of offense and he has struggled in the plus-minus category, too. His four blocked shots were a little out of character, too, as he had just 43 blocks over his first 34 games. The area he benefits fantasy owners the most is in the hits category (80).

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Holds down San Jose for OT road win
    9h ago

    Tuukka Rask yielded just one goal on 30 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime victory against the Sharks.

    Rask coughed up 12 goals in his first three appearances in February, but he has given up just one goal over his past two outings, stopping 54 shots. He has won three straight outings and remains a must-start fantasy option across the board.

  • Tyler Graovac MIN C
    Wild's Tyler Graovac: Recalled from AHL
    5m ago

    Tyler Graovac was recalled from the team's AHL Iowa affliate Monday.

    The Minnesota Wild sent Alex Tuch back to the minors Sunday, leaving the door open for Graovac to enter the lineup upon his return to the top level. He should slot into a bottom-six role and is unlikely to gain fantasy relevance in most leagues. The 23-year-old forward has tallied six points (all goals) over 45 games this season, but is unlikely to receive enough ice time (10:01 average) to see a large increase in scoring rate.

    Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Telegraphs puck for empty-net dagger
    1h ago

    Luke Glendening made good on an empty-netter from center ice in Sunday's 5-2 road win over the Penguins.

    This was just the third goal of the season for the Michigan native -- he's been confined to a bottom-six role -- but his defensive efforts were huge in helping the Wings kill off all four Pittsburgh power plays. Glendening is an asset for the Wings, but not someone that you should be counting on in the fantasy realm due to his limited chances with the puck.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Helps out twice in home loss
    9h ago

    Alexander Wennberg posted a pair of assist with two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss against the Predators.

    Wennberg has followed up a five-game scoreless skid with four assists over his past three outings. He has cooled off a bit recently, and he doesn't take a lot of shots on goal. However, he picks up enough assists to be an asset in most fantasy formats, especially since he logs plenty of time on the power play.

    Predators' Calle Jarnkrok: Pots another goal in Sunday's road win
    9h ago

    Calle Jarnkrok posted a goal with a hit in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

    Jarnkrok has been red hot since the end of January, posting six goals with 10 points over his past 11 games. He has been logging plenty of time on the man advantage in the Music City, endearing himself to fantasy owners in leagues of 12 or more teams. If he continues his hot streak he might be worthy of attention in all formats. DFS players will also want to take advantage of his mid-tier pricing until he starts to cool.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Picks up helper in Sunday's road win
    9h ago

    Mike Fisher posted an assist with a plus-1 rating and a minor penalty in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

    Fisher has struggled in February with just two goals and four points through eight games after a season-high 10 points in the month of January. However, he still logs plenty of time on the power-play unit and should not be discarded in most fantasy leagues just yet.

    Blackhawks' Patrick Kane: Records two points versus Sabres
    12h ago

    Patrick Kane posted a goal and an assist in a 5-1 victory over the Sabres on Sunday.

    The 2015-16 MVP didn't register a point Saturday, but he has points in six of his last seven contests. He has recorded five goals and 11 points during that span. It's been a relatively quiet season compared to last season, but Kane is averaging over a point per game and just hit the 20-goal mark. He has at least 20 goals in all 10 of his seasons and is on pace for his third 80-point campaign.

    Devils' Taylor Hall: Registers three-point night versus Islanders
    12h ago

    Taylor Hall posted a goal, two assists and five shots in a 6-4 loss to the Islanders on Sunday. Two of his three points came on the man advantage.

    The 14 goals and 40 points that Hall has posted in his first season with the New Jersey Devils might not seem like much, but he actually has a higher points per 60 minutes average this season than last (2.48 versus 2.52). And although he isn't getting as many shots to the net, Hall has recorded five shots or more in four of his eight games this month. He could produce a little bit more on the power play, but Sunday was a good start.

    Van Riemsdyk had two assists in a 4-0 win over Carolina on Sunday night. He has three assists in his last eight games.

    JVR had been in coach Mike Babcock's bad books this past week and had even found himself stapled to the bench for long stretches. But he showed up Sunday and that's great news for his owners. Just beware -- Van Riemsdyk doesn't have Mitch Marner on his line right now and that might depress his scoring.

    9h ago

    Zach Werenski picked up a goal with two assists, a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot in Sunday's 4-3 loss against the Predators.

    The rookie from the University of Michigan has quickly become a fantasy must-have with nine goals and 36 points with a healthy plus-16 rating. He doesn't spend a lot of time in the sin bin, but he has managed 33 hits and 66 blocked shots to more than make up for his lack of penalties.

    Ryan Ellis picked up a goal on his only shot of the game in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

    Ellis was without a goal in 11 straight games after a three-goal outburst in back-to-back outings Jan. 19-20. He is a fantasy defenseman on the rise, posting decent offensive numbers with 51 hits and 92 blocked shots through 50 games. Ellis is worth a look in most formats.

    Jets' Jacob Trouba: Set for disciplinary hearing
    10h ago

    Jacob Trouba will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday for his check to the head on Ottawa's Mark Stone on Sunday, Steve Lloyd of TSN reports.

    It's unclear at this point whether the hearing will occur over the phone or in person, but regardless, Trouba is looking at a potential suspension for his transgression -- which occurred just past the six-minute mark of the third period Sunday. The Winnipeg Jets play again Tuesday, and owners will likely find out late Monday afternoon as to whether Trouba will be available for that contest in Toronto.

    Jets' Josh Morrissey: Scores versus Senators

    Josh Morrissey scored an unassisted goal in a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.

    The 21-year-old has great promise for his career, but he has only tallied three goals and 15 points this season. Furthermore, he's averaging just over a shot on goal per game. Morrissey is an interesting keeper possibility in dynasty leagues, but he's not exactly an offensive juggernaut just yet.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Scores versus Senators
    12h ago

    Dustin Byfuglien tallied a goal, five shots and four hits during 28:06 in a 3-2 victory over the Senators on Sunday.

    The 31-year-old went through a 13-game goalless drought recently, but he broke that Thursday in Pittsburgh. Since then, he has two goals, three points and a plus-3 rating in three games. But overall, the season has been a disappointment for Byfuglien owners. He's posted a career-low 4.4 shooting percentage, which has led to only eight goals. Fortunately, he has contributed in other less popular fantasy categories such as time on ice and hits.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Makes 28 saves in losing cause
    1h ago

    Peter Budaj stopped 28 of 29 shots in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings .

    It was a great effort from Budaj, but unfortunately the Kings couldn't solve John Gibson. With the loss, the 34-year-old falls to 26-19-3 on the season. While he played well Sunday, Budaj has been struggling to pick up victories of late, managing just one win in his last six appearances. His .916 save percentage is appealing, but Budaj is turning in inconsistent performances, so it's hard to know what you're going to get each night. The stability is starting to wear off, but Budaj and his 26 wins are still a valuable fantasy asset.

    Ducks' John Gibson: Makes 24 saves to blank Kings

    John Gibson stopped all 24 shots he faced in Sunday's win over Los Angeles.

    It was the fifth shutout of the season for Gibson, who has been dynamite in the Anaheim crease. He's had the odd bad outing, but Gibson is sporting a solid .922 save percentage and has posted 23 wins. The 23-year-old sees a heavy workload and has posted shutouts in two of his last three games for an Anaheim team sitting third in the Pacific Division with 72 points. Use him well.

    Sergei Bobrovsky stopped just 28 of the 32 shots he faced in Sunday's 4-3 loss against the Predators.

    Bobrovsky has been a bit erratic lately, letting in three or more goals in seven of his past 10 starts after allowing three or more scores in just nine of his first 37 appearances. Still, he is the backstop for a contender and he receives plenty of support from his offense. Bobrovsky remains a must-start in all fantasy formats despite some uneven results over the past few weeks.

    Juuse Saros turned aside 35 of the 38 shots he faced in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

    Saros picked up his first victory in nearly a month. He hasn't looked as good as he did earlier in the season, but he has been matched up against some big-time offensive units lately. Saros is nothing more than a depth fantasy option in standard pools and a decent low-end No. 2 streaming option in leagues allowing daily transactions.
