Yandle registered two assists over 22:59 of ice time during Wednesday's loss to Edmonton.
Quietly, Yandle is having another solid campaign and is now up to 31 points through 59 games this season. Over the past four years, his 1.59 points per 60 minutes rank seventh among all defensemen with at least 6,000 minutes, and his 5.04 mark with the man advantage paces all rearguards with 1,000 minutes during the same time frame. Now that the Panthers are finally healthy, Yandle has the upside to close the season strong, and he's likely undervalued in plenty of fantasy circles. He's also currently presenting excellent value in daily contests.
Yandle dished out two special teams helpers in Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over Tampa Bay.
Yandle's first assist came on a first-period penalty kill while his second contributed to the overtime power-play winner. The 30-year-old blueliner continues to be a solid source of assists (22) and power-play points (11).
Yandle is up to 19 assists this season, which has helped him maintain a half-point-per-game pace. The ironman has played in 594 consecutive games, second only to Ducks winger Andrew Cogliano and his remarkable run of 748 straight contests among active players. Yandle is a conservative fantasy owner's best friend.
Yandle registered an assist and five shots on net during Wednesday's shootout loss to Toronto.
It's hasn't been the smashing offensive success in Florida that many expected for Yandle, and he hasn't posted a point in consecutive games in any of his past 16 outings. Still, the veteran's 1.65 points per 60 minutes over the previous three seasons rank sixth among all defenseman with at least 5,000 minutes, so there is likely positive regression ahead for Yandle. It makes him a speculative buy-low candidate in seasonal leagues and a potential flier in daily contests.
