Duclair ended a seven-game goalless drought in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg. Prior to scoring with 17 seconds left in regulation, Duclair had gone six games without a point. Though the 20-year-old rookie has faced a bit of a scoring drought, he is on pace for an impressive 41 points. Though he seemed to put his cold-streak behind him, expect Duclair to continue logging bottom-line minutes.
Duclair assisted on both Arizona goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 2-1 road win against the Flames. That's now three points in three games for Duclair on the heels of a five-game stretch in which he totaled exactly zero points. The 20-year-old winger has proven streaky in his first full NHL season, so finding fantasy success with Duclair has been all about riding the wave at the right moment. With the whole team gaining confidence and Duclair's production looking ready to ramp up again, we may be in one of those moments.
Duclair (illness) will play Saturday against the Islanders, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Duclair missed Thursday's game against Columbus due to illness, but was declared "good to go" for Saturday's tilt by head coach Dave Tippett on Friday. The 20-year-old winger has tallied 18 points (10 goals, eight assists) in 30 games with the Yotes this season, and will return to a top-six role in Saturday's contest.
Duclair (illness) won't play Thursday against the Blue Jackets. John Scott will replace the ailing Duclair in the Coyotes' lineup for Thursday's matchup with Columbus. Arizona's next game is scheduled for Saturday evening against the Islanders, so expect an update on Duclair's status ahead of that contest.
Duclair scored a pair of goals and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes. Duclair is now up to 10 goals on the season, as he continues to impress in his first full NHL stint. While the 20-year-old had just one point in his previous eight games prior to Saturday, he now has 18 points in 30 games on the season and should continue to produce as long as he sticks in the top-six and on the power play.
