      Devils' Lee Stempniak: Lifts Devils past Senators on Thursday

      Stempniak had a goal and an assist, as well as the game-winner in a 5-4 shootout win Thursday against the Senators. The veteran winger has really turned back the clock with New Jersey, scoring the goal that forced overtime and the shootout winner. He's starting to look like a legit top-six forward and is definitely logging top-six minutes. He led Devils' forwards in ice time with 23:43 on the top unit with Adam Henrique and Mike Cammalleri. Odds are this kind of production won't continue for Stempniak, so better capitalize while New Jersey is hot.

      Stempniak got the secondary assist on Adam Larsson's overtime-winner Tuesday against the Coyotes. It was Stempniak's second point in as many games and it came on the most crucial goal of the night.

He's seen over 18 minutes of ice time in each of his past three games, including 20:24 against Arizona. In a top-six role with the Devils, Stempniak should be primed for a renaissance type of season.

      Analysis: It remains unclear how much ice time Lee Stempniak will average with his new club, however, the fact that he skated with Wheeler and Lowry on Winnipeg's third line at Tuesday's practice bodes well for the veteran winger. Judging from his soon-to-be line-mate's averages, he'll likely get a little over 13 minutes of ice time per game with the Jets. While that isn't a significant improvement on the 12:26 minutes of ice time he averaged per game with New York, the improved talent surrounding Stempniak could lead to a modest boost in production for him. Stempniak tallied nine goals and nine assists in 53 games with the Rangers this season, and will look to improve on those numbers with Winnipeg as the 2014-2015 campaign draws to a close. Fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach with Stempniak until his role with his new team becomes clearer.
