    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Blocks six shots in loss

    Girardi registered three shots and block six more in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Senators. Although the veteran defenseman extends his point-scoring drought to seven games, most importantly to head coach Alain Vigneault, he was the team's only defenseman not to cough up a giveaway in the loss. While no help to standard format fantasy owners, the six blocked shots puts him over the century mark (104) in taking one for the team for the seventh straight season. The 31-year-old Girardi has two goals and 11 points through 42 games played.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Back in action Saturday

    Girardi (hand) will return to the lineup for Saturday's road match with the Flyers. Girardi's hand ailment proved to be minor as he only missed one game. It appears safe for fantasy owners to plug the brawny blueliner into lineups, but don't expect much offense as he's recorded just nine points in 37 games this season.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Appears probable for Saturday

    Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Girardi (hand) is likely to play in Saturday's road game against the Flyers. The bench boss stopped short of officially confirming Girardi, but for what it's worth, the man himself said to reporters, "I think i'm good to go." Girardi is a fearless player who uses his 6-foot-1, 208-pound frame to get in the way of shots from the opposition. He has 80 hits and 82 blocks through 37 games in 2015-16.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Out Thursday

    As expected, Girardi won't play Thursday against the Islanders. Girardi was never really expected to suit up for Thursday's contest, as he's dealing with a significant cut on his hand he sustained in Monday's game against the Bruins. The 31-year-old blueliner is still listed as day-to-day with the ailment, however, indicating he may be able to return to action as soon as Saturday against Philadelphia. Dylan McIlrath will slot into the Rangers' lineup Thursday in Girardi's absence.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Questionable for Thursday

    Girardi (hand) remains a question mark for Thursday's game against the Islanders. Girardi did take part in practice Wednesday, but there's apparently a less than 50 percent chance he'll play in the contest. If he does end up missing the contest, Dylan McIlrath would likely draw into the lineup in his place, but the team should provide another update following Thursday's morning skate.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Cuts hand, won't return

    Girardi cut his hand in the second period of Monday's game against the Bruins and will not return, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. A cut hand shouldn't been an injury that keeps the veteran defenseman out too long, but it will keep him out at least the remainder of Monday's contest. The team should provide an update on his status at some point prior to the next game Thursday against the Islanders.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Scratching out of slump

    Girardi registered two shots on goal, two hits and an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Dallas. After a rough nine-game patch through early December, the defenseman is starting to come around again. While two points in four games and 10 points through 35 games is hardly anything to get excited over in fantasy terms, it's certainly logical to monitor the production of a top-pairing blue liner at any time.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Returns to the lineup and scorer's sheet

    Girardi logged an assist in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Predators. The 31-year-old defenseman was also plus-1 with two shots on goal in nearly 19 minutes of total ice time. Enduring what has been reportedly called a "small" crack in his kneecap, Girardi was playing in just his first contest since December 12, so it's nice to see the blue liner get on the scorer's sheet and snap a three-game point-scoring drought. Additionally, he has parted ways with the minus-5 he registered in the three games prior to his absence. While the holiday break seems to have healed the swelling, his lack of consistent production and long-term injury prognosis should leave fantasy users with a lack of interest.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Will return Monday

    Girardi (knee) will return to the lineup Monday against the Predators. Girardi took part in practice Sunday, and seemed a likely candidate to rejoin the lineup for Monday's contest. That's indeed the case, and he'll likely pair with Ryan McDonagh in hie return.

    Rangers' Dan Girardi: Could return Monday

    Girardi (knee) practiced Sunday and should return to the lineup Monday against the Predators, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Girardi reportedly has a crack in his knee cap, but can't do anything more to hurt the issue and just needs to keep the swelling down. He's expected to rejoin the lineup Monday barring something unforeseen, but another update should come prior to the contest confirming his status.
