Ovechkin registered two assists without a shot on net during Wednesday's win over the Flyers.
It was just the second game all season that Ovechkin failed to register a shot on net, but fantasy owners will overlook the rarity and happily take the two helpers. The veteran sniper has chipped in more assists this season, and there's a solid chance he tops 30 for the first time since the 2010-11 campaign. Don't overthink it, though, his 27 goals still rank seventh in the league, and he's a heater away from being in the thick of the race.
Ovechkin had a power-play goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.
The Russian's 27th goal of the season gives him 52 points in 58 games in 2016-17. He may struggle to hit the 50-goal mark for the first time in four seasons, but he remains as reliable a fantasy performer as they come.
Ovechkin tallied a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Carolina.
He opened the scoring in the first period, so Ovechkin was credited with the game-winner. The superstar winger has now hit 50 points, but that's barely a milestone at all for him; only once has Ovie finished a full NHL campaign short of 70 points. It's rarely a bad night to fit him into a DFS lineup.
It was a memorable day for the 31-year-old winger, who was honored prior to the game after hitting the 1,000 career point mark earlier in the season. With 25 goals and 48 points in 53 games, the "Great 8" continues to be a dominant fantasy performer in a variety of categories, so keep playing him with confidence.
The marker gives the 31-year-old Russian a three-game goal-scoring streak and 19 points in 16 games during 2017. He's as dependable as ever, so make sure he's always in your lineup.
