      Canucks' Jannik Hansen: Notches two points in win

      Hansen scored his eighth goal of the season and added an assist in a win over the Blackhawks Saturday. Hansen's loving life on the top line with the Sedin twins, who combined for nine points Saturday. Hansen is now up to six goals and 13 points in 21 games on the season. While he's finding twine, his plus-11 rating -- which ranks seventh in the entire NHL -- might be even more impressive. Hansen's a streaky scorer and while he may be slotted in on the top line, don't expect top-line numbers. He's never hit 40 points and often goes cold for extended periods of time. Use him while he's rolling with the twins, but don't put all your eggs in one basket. Once he gets bumped down to the bottom six, his fantasy value will decrease significantly.

      Canucks' Jannik Hansen: Scores for second straight game

      Hansen scored for the second straight game in Wednesday's loss to the Penguins. While Hansen is known for being a streaky scorer, he's having a very strong start to the season, sporting a plus-7 rating though 13 games thus far. Skating on a line with Alex Burrows and Bo Horvat, Hansen has produced three goals and three assists -- solid totals for a bottom-six forward. He's never hit 40 points in his career, but Hansen is a valuable depth scorer who could come close to 20 goals this season.

      Vancouver Canucks' Jannik Hansen opens the scoring in season opener

      Hansen opened the scoring with a bullet in Wednesday's season-opening win over the Flames. It was a rocket of a shot from Hansen, who skated on the third line, firing three shots on goal in 13:40 of ice time. While the 29-year-old has never surpassed 40 points in his career, he potted 16 goals last season and is a solid bottom-six winger. He won't get many assists, but the speedy Dane has a great shot and should have another decent season in the goal department. He isn't spectacular, but at least you know what you're getting.

    • Finds twine in preseason finale

      News: Jannik Hansen scored a late game-tying tally and fired three shots on goal in Sunday's preseason finale OT win over the Oilers.
      Analysis: A strong finish to the preseason for Jannik Hansen, who recorded a goal and an assist in four games. While there's a chance he sees some playing time with the Sedin twins in 2015-16, it's more likely he'll spend the majority of this season in a bottom-six role. The 29-year-old matched a career best with 16 goals in 2014-15, but he's never surpassed 40 points in his career and doesn't see power-play time. He's a decent fantasy option in some deep leagues, but in his ninth NHL season, don't expect anything spectacular.
    • Canucks' Hansen Played Through Groin Injury

      News: Jannik Hansen acknowledged Monday that he played through the Canucks' first-round playoff series against the Flames with a groin injury, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
      Analysis: Jannik Hansen labeled it as a minor injury, but it will still prevent him from participating with Denmark in the World Championships in May. The winger tallied two points in the season-ending Game 6 loss Saturday, giving him four points during the postseason. The 29-year-old is still under contract with the Canucks for three more seasons.
    • Canucks' Hansen Registers Two Points In Game 6

      News: Jannik Hansen scored his second goal of the playoffs and had an assist in Saturday's series-ending Game 6 loss to the Flames.
      Analysis: Jannik Hansen did alright in these playoffs, registering four points in six games. While the 29-year-old skated on the top line with the Sedin twins in the final few games, he remains a bottom-six player who can contribute 10-20 goals in the regular season.
    • Canucks' Hansen Scores In Game 3 Loss

      News: Jannik Hansen scored his first goal of the playoffs in Sunday's Game 3 loss to Calgary.
      Analysis: Skating on the fourth line alongside Bo Horvat, Jannik Hansen has managed to be valuable in three playoff games, contributing a goal and an assist. While he's producing points, don't expect this recent trend to continue, as he's scored just five goals in 60 career playoff games and is known for being streaky. He can produce in a bottom-six role, but the 29-year-old is purely a depth scorer who has never surpassed 40 points in his eight-season NHL career.
    • Canucks' Hansen: Three-Game Point Streak

      News: Jannik Hansen collected an assist in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to the Flames, pushing his point streak to three games.
      Analysis: With totals of 16 goals and 17 assists in 81 regular-season contests, Jannik Hansen was one of the NHL's most productive fourth-line scorers. While that type of output gives him value in deeper formats, Hansen won't carry much appeal in the vast majority of leagues, which are typically shallow enough to exclude forwards averaging less than a half-point per contest.
    • Canucks' Hansen Gets Goal In Win

      News: Jannik Hansen netted a goal in Wednesday's shootout win over the Predators.
      Analysis: Jannik Hansen found twine for his 15th of the season during four-on-four play six minutes into the second period. The winger has been a steady producer in a depth role with 31 points across 76 games, but his utility is largely limited to deep leagues.
    • Canucks' Hansen Stays Hot In Loss

      News: Jannik Hansen potted his 12th goal of the season in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Sabres.
      Analysis: Jannik Hansen has remained confined largely to a bottom-six role this season, but with rapidly improving rookie Bo Horvat by his side, his production has begun to take off lately. The winger has picked up at least a point in seven of his last eight games, accumulating two goals and six assists during that stretch. He's unlikely to gain universal fantasy appeal anytime soon, but Hansen might make for an attractive pickup in deeper formats.
