Hendricks will not be in the lineup Wednesday night against the Ducks, Jack Michaels of Oilers Radio Network reports. Hendricks reportedly will give way to Anton Slepyshev on the fourth line in the upcoming contest. Both guys have been poor fantasy options this season due to their limited roles.
Hendricks had a goal and an assist Thursday against the Flyers. Hendricks' 14:40 played was his most in a game since Dec. 21, but the blowout nature of this 6-3 affair likely had a lot to do with that increased ice time. The depth forward has scored in consecutive games after tallying a single point in his previous 15.
Hendricks scored a goal with a plus-1 in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss against Nashville. It was just the second goal and fourth point for Hendricks in 20 games, and his first tally in 10 games. His ice time is rather minimal since he is a checking line player, and he does very little offensively to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.
Hendricks registered a goal, an assist, three hits, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating during Wednesday's win over Arizona. The 35-year-old veteran posted a career-high 25 points during the 2010-11 campaign, and he has never scored double-digit goals. He tips the scales in the hits and PIM columns, but there isn't any fantasy value to be found across the rest of his stat line. Additionally, he's locked into a fourth-line role, which further limits his appeal in all virtual settings.
Hendricks (lower body) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Stars, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports. Hendricks is a solid bottom-six player for the Oilers, but isn't a viable option in most fantasy formats due to his limited offensive upside. The veteran winger is expected to skate with Mark Letestu and Zack Kassian on Edmonton's fourth line against Dallas.
