Hjalmarsson lit the lamp and added a helper against the Sabres on Friday. He also went plus-2 and had two penalty minutes. These are Hjalmarsson's first points in 12 games, and he only has two goals on the season, so he hasn't exactly been lighting it up for fantasy teams so far.
Hjalmarsson collected two assists in 21:40 of ice time in Tuesday's win over the Predators. Hjalmarsson has impressed of late, recording three points and a plus-5 rating in his last two games. He's not a big offensive contributor and doesn't play on the power play, so don't expect this recent trend to continue, but he is playing with Duncan Keith and has eight points in his last 14 games, so it is possible he could surpass his previous career high of 26 points. The 28-year-old is a fantastic defensive defenseman, with the offense coming as an added bonus.
