  • Predators' Matt Irwin: Rare assist in win over Sharks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/17) Irwin recorded his 14th point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 7-2 shellacking of the Sharks.

    Irwin was looking like a possible breakout candidate back in November with five points in his first seven games, but he's been very quiet offensively since then. Irwin does tend to get bumped up the depth chart whenever a regular like P.K. Subban or Roman Josi goes down with an injury, but otherwise he's pretty much locked into a third-pairing role on the Preds' blue line. Lately, his ice time has been in the range of roughly 11-to-13 minutes per game, which doesn't equate to much fantasy value outside of very deep leagues.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Ultra-rare two-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/1/17) Irwin notched a pair of assists despite being on the ice for only 10:30 during Tuesday's 5-4 overtime victory in Buffalo.

    This was only his second multi-point game of the season, with the last one having come Nov. 5., and it also ended a 12-game point-free skid during which Irwin put just six shots on net. Unless your league gives heavy weight to hits, blocks and plus-minus -- and he isn't even elite in any of those categories -- there's nothing to see here for fantasy purposes.

    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.
