Lowry scored both Winnipeg goals in a 5-2 loss to Colorado on Saturday. One of the goals came on the power play. The points snapped a 12-game point dought and a 21-game goal slump. Lowry's biggest fantasy category is hits -- he has 135 in 54 games. Great day, Adam, but it's not enough to whet our fantasy whistle.
Lowry's pointless streak extended to 10 games with Thursday's win over Chicago. Lowry's drought is certainly not from a lack of opportunities as he is averaging 15:46 during this stretch, including some limited power-play minutes. Also of concern for owners is the center's limited ancillary stats -- 21 hits and 10 blocked shots. It would take a pretty significant change in performance for the 23-year-old to become fantasy relevant.
Lowry's pointless streak reached eight in a row against Edmonton on Sunday. Despite his struggles to write his name on the scoresheet, Lowry continues to log significant ice time as he has averaged 15:50 during his scoring drought. Although he is not a prolific scorer, fantasy owners likely expected more out of the center -- just eight points in 32 contests -- considering he is part of the Jets' power play.
Lowry produced two man-advantage points Sunday, helping the Jets to a 3-2 overtime win over the Kings. Lowry is a steamroller on the ice at 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds. His strength is certainly an asset for Winnipeg, but the game-to-game offensive inconsistency can be a bit maddening in the fantasy realm. The 23-year-old has four goals and two assists in 14 games.
Lowry found the back of the net with one of his six shots Thursday in Washington. Lowry scored the second of a three-goal third-period barrage that forced overtime. It ultimately wasn't enough to win, but does give the 23-year-old American goals in consecutive contests following a nine-game dry spell to open the season.
