  • Capitals' Brett Connolly: Extends point streak to five games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Connolly scored a goal in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Connolly fired a shot from the goal line that redirected off a Red Wings defender late in the first period. The marker gives the British Columbia native four goals and seven points over the last five games. While this hot streak is unlikely to last, the regular ice time seems to be paying off so those in deeper leagues should keep an eye on Connolly moving forward.

    Capitals' Brett Connolly: Contributing from bottom of lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/17) Connolly skated a team-low 11:45 in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Carolina, but that was enough time for him to pick up a goal and an assist.

    Connolly now has a surprising four-game point streak going in which he's picked up six points and a plus-6 rating despite failing to clear 12 minutes of ice time in any of those contests. He's been hitting the scoresheet with something vaguely resembling consistency lately, offering the hope that Connolly might just start living up to the promise that made him the No. 6 overall pick in 2010. The team context certainly favors him in one respect -- that the Caps are scoring a lot more than they're getting scored on -- but their depth of forward talent means Connolly's role is likely to remain limited, as will his short-term fantasy upside. Let's not forget that he still only has 16 points in 40 games.

    Capitals' Brett Connolly: Has points in three straight games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/17) Connolly had a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-0 victory over the Kings.

    His first multi-point game of the season gives him two goals and two assists along with a plus-4 rating over his last three games. The 24-year-old winger is inching towards a career-high in goals and has gone from a minus-1 rating in 71 games with the Bruins in 2015-16 to a plus-17 rating in his first year with the Capitals. Looking more and more comfortable on the third line with Lars Eller and Andre Burakovsky, Connolly may have some sleeper value in deep leagues moving forward, but his lack of overall ice time certainly limits his fantasy upside.

    Capitals' Brett Connolly: Lights the lamp Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/17) Connolly scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.

    The 24-year-old winger has nine goals and 11 points in 37 games on the year. More importantly, he's played in the last 20 games and is now seen as a regular in the lineup which was not the case earlier in the season. Logging regular ice time on an increasingly potent third line, he's starting to carve out some modest fantasy value in deeper leagues so keep an eye on him moving forward.

    Capitals' Brett Connolly: Has goals in consecutive games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/17) Connolly potted a goal and was a plus-2 in Washington's 7-3 rout over the Blues.

    The former sixth overall pick from the 2010 NHL Draft now has three goals in the last four games on a third line unit that is starting to show some offensive flair. Connolly has had more jump in his game in recent outings and is looking more and more comfortable in the lineup, and may be worth a look in deeper leagues if this trend continues.

  • April 3, 2015: Productive Bruins Debut For Connolly
    Connolly, making his return from a finger injury and his Bruins debut, was key to Thursday's comeback win over Detroit, assisting on his team's first goal as well as the game-winner late in the third period.He skated just a modest 12:44 in his first game as a Bruin, but certainly fit right in. Connolly never got a great chance in Tampa Bay, but it wouldn't be terribly surprising to see 2010's No. 6 overall pick flourish in Boston.
