  • Predators' Matt Irwin: Posts first point of January

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/17) Irwin picked up an assist with a plus-1 in Friday's 3-2 win against the Oilers.

    Irwin snapped a nine-game scoreless skid to kick off the month of January. He still has just three goals and nine points through 40 games. The rearguard is most helpful in deeper rotisserie pools for solid plus-15, 84 hits and 71 blocked shots.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Garners one-year contract renewal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) Irwin was rewarded with a one-year contract extension Friday, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports.

    Irwin is a burly defenseman who moves the puck well and is a steady contributor in his own zone. In 32 games with the Predators this season, he's managed eight points with an immaculate plus-14 rating. He's gaining traction with Nashville after five years with the Sharks organization and another season predominately spent with AHL Providence, a minor-league affiliate of the Bruins.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Chips in helper against Philadelphia

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/16) Irwin registered an assist, two blocked shots and six hits during Monday's shootout win over the Flyers.

    Irwin has provided modest cross-category production with three goals, seven points, 40 shots, 39 blocked shots, 55 hits and a plus-10 rating over 25 games this season. However, he probably should be left to the waiver wire outside of cavernous leagues.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Promoted to first defensive pairing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/16) Irwin saw ice time of 19:57 against the Avalanche on Tuesday, skating mainly on the first defensive pairing with Roman Josi.

    Irwin has seen a huge jump in his minutes lately, averaging almost 21 minutes per night over the last four games -- a huge jump from the 11-12 minutes he was seeing at the start of the season. He's still not producing much offensively (just one assist in his last 12 games), but given the spike in his TOI, it may just be a matter of time before he starts producing. He's worth a speculative add in deeper leagues right now.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Supplies offense in shootout loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/6/16) Irwin netted his third goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

    That's a three-game goal streak for Irwin, who is managing to produce despite being on the team's third defensive pairing. The former Shark has logged under 13 minutes of ice time in each of those outings, so it's hard to see him continuing this production, especially when you consider he doesn't play on the power play and is overshadowed by the likes of P.K. Subban and Roman Josi. Irwin could be a decent add in deeper leagues, but keep in mind he's never surpassed 20 points in his career and doesn't see significant ice time.

  • March 29, 2015: Sharks' Irwin Gets Goal In Lineup Return
    Irwin netted a goal on one of his two shot attempts in Saturday's shootout win over the Flyers.After serving as a healthy scratch in the Sharks' previous game, Irwin certainly made his presence felt in his return. In addition to the goal, he finished with 22:11 TOI -- about five and a half more minutes than he's been averaging for the season. With Mirco Mueller quite likely out for the remainder of the season with a left hand injury, Irwin should be able to enjoy a regular role on the Sharks' blue line.
