Hamhuis signed a two-year, $7.5 million deal with the Stars on Friday, reports TSN. Hamhuis will act as a rudder on the Stars defence. He's never delivered more than 37 points in any season and is more of a steady 20-25 point man. There are better fantasy options, but his presence will be a huge benefit for whomever is in the Stars' net.
Hamhuis scored the game-winning goal on the power play Saturday against San Jose. A clutch third-period tally from Hamhuis, who logged a whopping 24:42 of ice time in the victory. The 33-year-old only has nine points on the season, but he's got a goal and four points in his last five games and is logging heavy minutes. Hamhuis is no longer a significant offensive contributor, but he's showing right now why he's still valuable in some very deep leagues.
Hamhuis recorded two assists, three shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks. Hamhuis now has four of his six points in his last 12 games since returning from a 21-game absence on Feb. 6 due to a facial fracture. The 33-year-old has failed to score a goal in 39 games played this season, though. He does have 40 hits and 52 blocked shots on the season, but still doesn't have much value even in the deepest of leagues.
Hamhuis (face) will return to action Saturday night against the Flames, TSN's Darren Dreger reports. Based on this report, it appears that Hamhuis is on the verge of being removed from injured reserve. Hamhuis took a slap shot to the face in a game against the Rangers on Dec. 12 and sustained a facial fracture. The scary incident caused the defenseman to miss 21 games. Hamhuis is an 11-year veteran with hockey smarts but he isn't a logical choice in the numbers-hungry world of fantasy hockey. He's averaging 1.26 hits per game this season but four assists represent his only points in 27 games this campaign.
Hamhuis (face) won't return to action Thursday against the Blue Jackets. Hamhuis was reevaluated Wednesday, which apparently revealed that the 33-year-old blueliner still isn't quite ready to return to game action. The former first-round pick is currently on injured reserve, so the Canucks' should announce his activation once he's fit to play.
