Liles posted a rare assist in Monday's 3-2 OT loss to the Flyers. It was just his second point in 21 games so far this season. After recording a respectable 20 points last year, Liles will be lucky to hit double digits this season given his current pace. He's still averaging over 20 minutes per game on the Canes' top defensive pairing, but Liles has not seen any power-play time for three straight games. His fantasy value barely moves the needle right now. Avoid.
Liles was held off the scoresheet for the 12th time in 13 games Friday against the Stars. With just a single assist so far this season, Liles is currently on track to post the worst offensive totals of his career. The puzzling thing is, Liles continues to see a decent amount of ice time, averaging almost 21 minutes a game, with a decent amount of that coming on the power play (2:33), but he just can't seem to make anything click offensively. That said, Liles' teammates can't seem to find the net either, as the Canes are currently tied for third-last in the NHL in goals per game at a meagre 2.08. As such, we don't expect Liles' numbers to turn around anytime soon. Avoid.
