  • Wild's Thomas Vanek: Returns to lineup, assists on two

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/16) Vanek assisted on two goals in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Vanek was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Blues, but he returned to the lineup Tuesday, recording points for the first time in four games. At least in the short-term, coach Mike Yeo's wake-up call may have worked, but the 32-year-old will need to string together a few more solid outings before he can be trusted.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: Healthy scratch Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/16) Vanek will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's matchup with the Blues, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    Head coach Mike Yeo has opted to send Vanek a wake-up call, as the veteran winger simply hasn't played well of late, tallying a single assist and just six shots on goal in his last eight games. He likely won't be held out of Minnesota's lineup for long, however, and could return to action as soon as Tuesday against Dallas. In the meantime, Minnesota's coaching staff will hope Saturday's scratch will encourage the former-first round pick to do everything in his power to return to form.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: Fails to take a shot

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/16) Vanek did not have a shot on goal in either of the Wild's last two games, both shutout loses. He was a minus-1 in 19:52 of ice time in Saturday's loss to Nasvhille.

    Vanek had been played well with four points and was plus-6 in his last ten games, but the Wild have struggled on the offensive end the past two games.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: On pace for 11th 20-goal season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/16) Vanek scored his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Stars. It stood as the game winner.

    Vanek has just three goals (and eight points) in his last 19 games, so it's not like he's abusing the vulcanized rubber. The soon-to-be 32-year-old sniper's best before date has passed -- he has just two 50-plus point seasons since 2011-12. But Vanek can help in deep formats -- he is on pace for at least 20 goals for the 11th season of his 12-year career. Goals don't come easy in today's NHL.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: Struggling to score

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/16) Vanek put three shots on goal, but finished without a point in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers.

    It's been tough times lately for Vanek, who's been off the scoresheet for four consecutive games and eight of the last 10. After putting up four points against Vancouver on Dec. 15, the Austrian winger was sitting on 23 points in 29 games -- the sort of numbers that promised a bounceback to his old 60-point form. Now he's played 41 games, but has just 26 points. Worse, his ice time is trending down, as Thursday's 14:47 represented his fourth time under 15 minutes in the last six games; he hadn't previously played so little since early November.
