  • Capitals' Karl Alzner: Chips in assist Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alzner had an assist and had a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings. He has two assists and a plus-6 rating over his last three outings. The pending unrestricted free agent is invaluable to the Capitals as a shutdown defenseman, but with 11 points in 55 games, his fantasy value remains limited to deeper leagues even with his plus-24 rating on the season.

  • Capitals' Karl Alzner: Picks up helper Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alzner had an assist and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 5-0 victory over the Kings. The 28-year-old defenseman has 10 points and a plus-21 rating on the season. The pending unrestricted free agent is of tremendous value to the Capitals as a steady, shutdown defenseman, but his fantasy value is limited even in deeper leagues.

  • Capitals' Karl Alzner: Chips in rare pair of assists
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alzner collected two assists with five blocked shots and four hits during Monday's 6-1 win over Carolina. With just three goals and six assists for the year, Alzner doesn't move the offensive needle often. In fact, Monday's return was his first multi-point game of the year. He does offer nice peripheral contributions, though. The veteran defenseman has 60 hits, 92 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating, which makes him a useful option in some deep settings. However, you're likely better off streaming him for stretches than locking him into your lineup for the long haul.

  • Capitals' Karl Alzner: Major dry spell
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alzner has managed only one goal in his last 17 contests. Even for a shutdown defender, the dearth of scoring is still troubling for the 27 year-old defenseman, who looked more promising in terms of offense at the outset of the season. Increasing his offensive output certainly won't hurt Alzner's chances of landing a lucrative, long-term contract as he heads into free agency next summer. But for now, with so little production and a lack of opportunity on the power play, fantasy owners should look elsewhere.

  • Alzner scored his first goal of the season and finished with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. Renowned for his abilities as a shutdown defender, the 27-year-old defenseman is having a terrific start to the 2016-17 campaign, especially after undergoing offseason sports hernia surgery over the summer. His three points in seven games are a nice bonus, but his career-highs barely crest the 20-point mark, so it's unlikely this hot streak is a precursor of a breakout season, so his fantasy upside is limited in most formats.
