Fantasy Points by Week

  • Canadiens Lose Dawes

    News: Dawes signed with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia, the Montreal Gazette reports.
    Analysis: The Canadiens lose some organizational depth at forward. Dawes came to Montreal in the trade deadline deal with the Thrashers that also landed them Brent Sopel. Dawes saw some action with the Canadiens, but made more of a mark with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL, potting 14 goals and 14 assists in 19 games.
  • Montreal Sends Dawes To AHL

    News: Montreal assigned Dawes to the AHL on Thursday, Toronto Globe & Mail writer James Mirtle reports.
    Analysis: Dawes heading back to the AHL could indicate that Tomas Plekanec (lower body) or Mathieu Darche (groin) could be nearing return. In any case, Dawes is unlikely to make much of an impact in the future, as he has just one point in nine games.
  • Dawes Scores In Shootout In Montreal Debut

    News: Dawes, making his debut with the Habs, skated less than six minutes Thursday, but was the first man called upon in the shootout and beat Dwayne Roloson to help put Montreal over the top.
    Analysis: Dawes has been a point-per-game scorer in the AHL this year, but has never been able to stick on top lines at the NHL level. It seems Montreal may be using him as a sort of shootout specialist while he's in the lineup.
  • Habs Recall Dawes From AHL Hamilton

    News: The Canadiens have recalled Dawes from AHL Hamilton, ESPN'S Pierre LeBrun reports.
    Analysis: Dawes was called up along with Aaron Palushaj as extra insurance in case centers Tomas Plekanec and/or Jeff Halpern prove unfit to play Thursday night against the Lightning due to lower-body injuries.
  • Dawes Traded To Montreal

    News: The Canadiens have obtained Dawes and Brent Sopel from the Thrashers for Ben Maxwell and a fourth-round draft choice, reports.
    Analysis: Dawes has spent most of this season in the AHL, but he has played 208 NHL games (including nine this season, recording an assist) in his career, so he gives the Habs' some experienced depth up front.
  • Thrashers Demote Dawes

    News: The Thrashers have re-assigned Dawes to AHL Chicago, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
    Analysis: Dawes has just one assist in nine games for the Thrashers to date, so this nugget shouldn't affect too many fantasy lineups.
  • Dawes Recalled By Thrashers

    News: The Thrashers have recalled Dawes from AHL Chicago, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
    Analysis: Dawes has just one point in nine games with the big club thus far, but with Alexander Burmistrov and Fredrik Modin having landed on IR, the Thrashers need some depth up front.
  • Thrasher's Dawes Sent Down

    News: Dawes was sent to AHL Chicago by the Thrashers on Friday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
    Analysis: Dawes will get some extra work in over the All-Star Break, but he'll probably be back in Atlanta early next week.
  • Thrashers Recall Dawes

    News: The Thrashers recalled Dawes from AHL Chicago on Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
    Analysis: Dawes has 36 points (21G, 15A) in 40 games with Chicago this season. The Thrashers are a bit banged up in front, so Dawes could see some ice time over the next couple games.
  • Thrashers Waive Dawes

    News: The Thrashers placed Dawes on waivers Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
    Analysis: Dawes notched a game-winning shootout goal last Friday, but he didn't have much fantasy value and the Thrashers wanted to get down to 13 forwards.
