  • Predators' Alexei Emelin: Sent to the Music City

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Emelin (knee) was traded by Vegas to Nashville for a third-round draft pick, Darren Dreger of TSN.ca reports.

    Emelin was only in Vegas for a few days before getting traded, but he will now be the second Montreal defenseman to end up in Nashville in the past two years, joining former teammate P.K. Subban. The physical defender will likely fit into a bottom-four role in a stacked Nashville defensive core, but expect him to make a push for over 200 hits and 100 blocked shots, just as he has the past four seasons.

    Golden Knights' Alexei Emelin: Selected by Vegas in expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Emelin (knee) has been selected by the Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    LeBrun's update also states that the Habs did not have to entice the Golden Knights with a draft pick for them to select the hard-hitting Russian defenseman. Emelin has one year remaining on his contract with a cap hit of $4.1 million. He also has a modified 10-team no-trade clause. Don't be the least bit surprised if the Golden Knights move Emelin to another club in the coming days. He's never reached the 20-point mark in his NHL career, and his defensive play has become increasingly erratic. It's hard to imagine all that many teams being interested in Emelin at that price tag, but the majority of the league is on the lookout for NHL-caliber defensemen.

    Canadiens' Alexei Emelin: Undergoes knee procedure

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/26/17) Emelin had arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday, with a recovery timeline of 4-to-6 weeks.

    Emelin missed six games toward the end of the 2016-17 campaign with a lower-body injury that was likely the same malady that required surgery. He'll have plenty of time to get ready for training camp in September. Of course, the 31-year-old has never reached the 20-point mark in his career, so fantasy owners should look elsewhere for blue-line scoring.

    Canadiens' Alexei Emelin: Scores lone goal in elimination loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Emelin scored the lone Montreal goal in Saturday's series-ending Game 6 loss to the Rangers.

    Emelin only appeared in two postseason games this year due to injury, failing to make much of an impact in back-to-back losses. He isn't known for his offensive production and finished with just 10 points this season-- his lowest point total since his rookie campaign. Emelin aids Montreal with his strong physical game, but his lack of offensive capabilities is a turn-off for most fantasy goers.

    Canadiens' Alexei Emelin: Back in action Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/20/17) Emelin (lower body) will make his return to the lineup for Thursday's Game 5 against the Rangers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The hard-hitting defenseman has been skating since Sunday, but he didn't seem close to returning until Thursday's morning skate. Emelin skated on the third pairing with Nathan Beaulieu, while Brandon Davidson is expected to be a healthy scratch. The Habs will be happy to have Emelin in the lineup, as he's a clear upgrade over Davidson, but the Russian blueliner doesn't offer much from an offensive standpoint, having recorded two goals and 10 points over 76 games this season.
