      Predators' Barret Jackman: Saturday night's alright for fighting

      Jackman received a fighting major and a game misconduct during Saturday's 7-0 rout of the Jets. He saw just 7:55 of ice time but was a plus-2 and had 15 PIM. It's an odd-looking stat line for Jackman, who plays a physical game but usually shows enough discipline to say out of penalty trouble. For example, he had just 47 PIM all of last season, but he's already up to 26 after Saturday's scrappy affair with the Jets. Consider it a nice little bonus for the handful of you out there who own him - it won't happen often.

      Jackman (upper body) will return to the Predators' lineup for Thursday's tilt against the Ducks, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Jackman was forced to miss Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning with the upper-body injury, but is now apparently healthy enough to re-join Nashville's lineup Thursday against Anaheim. The 34-year-old veteran defender has yet to register a point this season, but enters Thursday's contest with a plus-3 rating.

      Predators' Barret Jackman: Day-to-day with upper-body injury

      Jackman missed Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay with an upper-body injury, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports. The 34-year-old Jackman is normally about as durable as they come - Tuesday marked just the ninth NHL game he's missed since the 2011-12 season - so this could actually be something serious. Mark him down as day-to-day for now, but the situation is worth monitoring. Check back for Jackman's official status prior to the Preds' net game - Thursday against the Ducks.

      Analysis: After 12 years in St. Louis, Barret Jackman will join another franchise for the first time in his career. As was the case during his final few seasons with the Blues, Jackman will be suiting up for one of the league's deeper defensemen ranks, as he'll join a Predators roster that includes All-Stars Shea Weber and Roman Josi and promising youngsters Ryan Ellis and Seth Jones. Those four players figure to shoulder most of the offensive burden from the blue line, leaving Jackman to do what he does best -- agitating opposing forwards and providing sound decision-making in front of his own net.

      Analysis: He's not known as an offensive contributor, but for what it's worth, Barret Jackman's 12 points in 43 games put him on pace to hit 20 for the first time since the 2008-09 season. His fantasy value, such as it is, stems from his contributions in PIM and blocked shots.
    • Blues' Jackman Gets Assist, 5 PIM In Win

      News: Barret Jackman recorded an assist and five PIM in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.
      Analysis: It's the first point since the middle of December for the 33-year-old, a drought that isn't all that atypical. Barret Jackman's standing as a third-pairing defender primarily tasked with keeping his goalie clean won't present many scoring opportunities.
    • Blues' Jackman Pots First

      News: Barret Jackman scored his first goal of the year Thursday, a first-period tally in a 6-3 win over the Islanders. He added an assist and went plus-3 with three shots on goal, two blocks and a hit over just 15:42 of ice time.
      Analysis: Barret Jackman's not known for his offense, but he has a three-game point streak going currently and is plus-7 in that span. As the 33-year-old sees intermittent ice time and has historically lacked in offensive production, he retains fairly minimal fantasy value even in leagues that count defensive stats like hits and blocked shots, where he provides solid, but non-elite production.
