  • Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Can be picked by Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/20/17) Stempniak has been exposed by the Hurricanes for the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft.

    If the 34-year-old is taken by Vegas on Wednesday, he'll play on his eighth team in six seasons. His age is obviously a concern, but Stempniak was able to play all 82 games last season, producing his second consecutive 40-point campaign. Even though Vegas likely doesn't want to pick too many veterans, Stempniak could be a viable option as a leader for younger players or as trade bait.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Scores milestone goal in Tuesday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Stempniak scored his 200th career goal while adding an assist and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 loss against the Wild.

    Stempniak is finishing up strong, posting four goals with 11 points over the past 14 games. He might not be worth scooping up in seasonal fantasy formats at this point, but he makes a nice low-cost sleeper in DFS for the remainder of the regular season.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Keeps good times rolling with two-goal night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Stempniak scored a pair of goals -- including the game-winner -- in Thursday's 4-1 upending of the Canadiens.

    He's been on a roll of late, racking up seven points in as many games, although all the others were assists -- Stempniak hadn't scored a goal since March 3. The veteran skated 16:48 in this one, his second-highest usage in the last 15 games, which is nice. Still, we know who Stempniak is at this point in his career: a quality third-line scorer whose shortcomings tend to be exposed when he receives more premier assignments.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Provides clutch assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Stempniak set up the game-tying goal Tuesday in an eventual 4-3 road win over the Panthers.

    One of the NHL's most popular nomads, Stempniak has been on 10 different teams over -- what's soon to be -- 12 years of service time in the league. He's picked up an assist in four of the past five games, and while the shifty winger may technically reside in the bottom six, Stempniak consistently gets deployed on the second man-advantage unit, which adds to his fantasy appeal. View him as ol' reliable with the fantasy playoffs underway.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Trending towards 40-point season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/17) Stempniak scored a goal for the second time in his last three games Friday against the Coyotes.

    Stempniak is now just one point shy of the 30-point mark this season with roughly one quarter of the schedule left to play. He likely won't match the 51 points he posted last season, but a 40-point campaign isn't out of the question, which wouldn't be half bad for the 34-year-old grinder. That said, Stempniak should still only be counted on in deeper fantasy formats at this point.
