Faksa scored a goal -- the game-winner -- and chipped in an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over St. Louis in Game 1. Faksa broke a 1-1 tie with less than five minutes remaining in regulation, sending the American Airlines Center into a frenzy. The rookie -- a first-round pick in 2013 -- put up a modest 12 points in 45 games in his debut NHL season, and has chipped in nicely in the postseason with two goals and two assists in seven games. It's worth noting that he has received over 15 minutes of ice time in each of his last four games, which is a clear sign he's playing well considering his average in the regular season was 12:21 per game.
Faksa registered two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-2 win over Colorado. Despite only sporting 12 points on the year, the 22-year-old has been on quite a roll as of late. Faksa has reached the scoresheet in four of the last five, recording three tallies and two helpers in that span.
Faksa scored his second goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Chicago. Faksa ends a seven-game point drought with Tuesday's goal. He's not lighting things up, but the injury to Tyler Seguin creates an opportunity. He's centering the third line with Ales Hemsky and Antoine Roussel on the wings. It's a chance to earn a little extra secondary scoring. However, you'll want to see it before you believe it.
Faksa was recalled by the Stars on Friday. Faksa continues to split time between the Stars and the team's AHL affiliate, but a recall was again required following Jason Spezza's (upper body) placement on injured reserve. He has averaged just 11:19 of ice time over 18 games this season, somewhat limiting his potential fantasy value, but it's unclear exactly where he'll slot in this time around.
Dallas reassigned Faksa to the AHL on Sunday. Faksa grabbed four games on this recall, contributing a single assist and five shots. His ice time was limited, topping out at 11:05 and seeing two games under 10 minutes. He isn't currently close to becoming fantasy relevant even when he is in the NHL.
