Jooris registered a third-period assist during Sunday's win over Buffalo. With Martin Hanzal already shipped out of town leading into the trade deadline and others potentially relocating, Jooris stands to see regular playing time down the stretch. He's flashed some offensive ability in stretches throughout his career, but without a top-six role, it's unlikely Jooris warrants fantasy attention. He has just three goals and seven points through 33 games this season, after all.
Jooris skated with the fourth line during the morning skate and is expected to play against Calgary on Monday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. With Lawson Crouse (lower body) not travelling with the club, Jooris should play against Calgary and Edmonton on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. Jooris has only suited up for one of the past seven games, though, and he's hardly moved the fantasy needle this season with only two goals and four points through 26 games. He's nothing more than a desperation fantasy option in all settings.
Jooris' logged a team-high 3:56 of shorthanded ice time during Thursday's loss to Minnesota. The 26-year-old forward has been in and out of the lineup since being claimed by Arizona and has just a single goal and two points through 13 games. While there are some fantasy settings that reward shorthanded points, Jooris would need to begin showing an increase in offensive production across the board before warranting attention in any virtual format.
Jooris was claimed off waivers by Arizona on Sunday, Jim Cerny of The Hockey Writers reports. The center only has two points in 12 games, but he's been averaging 8:36 minutes per game. If he gets some more playing time with the Coyotes, he could improve his scoring output, not enough to be a top player.
Jooris has been placed on waivers, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. Assuming Jooris clears waivers, he'll likely be headed down to AHL Hartford. The Burlington, Ontario native managed only a goal and an assist while averaging only 8:36 of ice time in 12 games with the Rangers, so it looks like he'll go elsewhere, whether that's the minors or another team, in search of more playing time.
