Holzer has been a healthy scratch for seven of the past eight games. Limited to just 23 games for the campaign, the 29-year-old defenseman isn't playing enough to warrant fantasy attention in the majority of settings. Holzer has also averaged just 13:56 of ice time per game and registered only 12 shots on net, so his virtual ceiling is low.
Holzer (personal) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Blues. Holzer sat out the team's previous two games dealing with a family matter, but is back on the ice in his usual third-pairing role next to Kevin Bieksa.
Holzer (personal) will be scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Coyotes, NHL.com reports. Our latest report on Holzer indicated that he was dealing with a family matter, and it's not clear if this latest absence is related. Either way, the defenseman has only drawn into 15 games with season, adding four assists with a minus-4 rating, so he's likely waiver fodder.
Holzer will miss Thursday's matchup with Colorado as he attends to a family matter, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Understandably, the Ducks have not provided any additional details regarding when Holzer might rejoin the team. Since returning from a lower-body injury in mid-November, the defenseman has played in just seven contests in which he averaged 13:44 of ice time and tallied two helpers. Until the 28-year-old returns, Shea Theodore will slot into the lineup.
Holzer will replace injured defenseman Clayton Stoner (lower body) against the Devils on Thursday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. This will only be just the sixth time that Holzer's laced up for a game this season, as he's a one-dimensional depth defenseman. The brawny shutdown man has 13 points in 92 career games, and that simply isn't worth getting excited about in the fantasy realm.
