Deryk Engelland, # 29
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
623912566
 
News
Engelland scored the game-winning goal against Florida on Friday.

The veteran defenseman has only marked the scoresheet in five of his past 36 games for two goals and six points, so you cannot rely on him for offensive production in any fantasy setting. In cavernous seasonal leagues, there is some value in his 50 shots, 39 PIM, 48 hits and 55 blocked shots during that 36-game stretch, but Engelland shouldn't be confused with a priority, either. Don't fret leaving him on the waiver wire.

News
Giordano netted the game-winner in overtime Tuesday for a 6-5 road win over the Predators.

The Toronto native was not about to be left out of a high-scoring affair, also providing a secondary helper on the game's first goal. Giordano puts icing on the cake for his fantasy owners based on his team-leading plus-14 rating and three shorthanded points through 60 contests. It's tough to envision a fantasy league setup where Giordano wouldn't be useful.

Troy Brouwer, # 36
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
54101121-1024
 
News
Brouwer registered a goal, an assist, two shots on net, two blocked shots, two hits, a minor penalty and a plus-2 rating during Friday's win over Florida.

The two-point showing snapped a six-game scoring drought, and with just 10 goals and 21 points through 54 games, Brouwer is hardly moving the fantasy needle. Brouwer has struggled to find chemistry with linemates during his first season in Calgary, so until he begins to click offensively, you'll likely want to avoid him in the majority of seasonal leagues.

News
Backlund scored a goal and added a power-play assist Thursday in a 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

He's been a remarkably steady presence for fantasy owners lately, picking up nine points in his last eight contests. Backlund is now just four points shy of last year's career-best 47, and with 21 games left on the schedule, he could very well make a run at 60. The 2007 first-round pick is finally growing into his pedigree.

Michael Frolik, # 67
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
62132235840
 
News
Frolik recorded two assists with two shots on net and a minor penalty during Friday's win over Florida.

While Frolik will never be a go-to fantasy assets, he has shown the ability to provide sneaky multi-category production for stretches. He's notched seven goals, 20 points and 72 shots with 24 PIM and a plus-10 rating over his past 27 games, after all. The veteran winger is a worth considering in deeper seasonal leagues, and he has contrarian upside in daily contests when Calgary draws a favorable opponent.

Brian Elliott, # 1
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPW-L-OTSOSV%GAA
3214-13-20.8962.81
 
News
Elliott stopped the Lightning on 23 of 25 shots in Thursday's 3-2 road victory.

He got a late scare, as Nikita Kucherov tied the game on a power play with 1:13 remaining, but Elliott was able to hold on to finalize a solid bounce-back performance after he gave up five goals (but won anyway) in Nashville on Tuesday. Elliott is 3-0-1 in his last four starts, and he appears to have a pretty solid lock on No. 1 duties in Calgary now.

News
Johnson saved 36 of 38 shots during Friday's win over Florida.

Johnson has only started four of the past 13 games dating back to mid-January, and he's gone 2-2 with a .886 save percentage and 3.47 GAA during that run. It appears that Johnson is clearly behind Brian Elliott on the depth chart, and considering Johnson's game-to-game inconsistency, the backup is likely best reserved to streaming status in most seasonal leagues. Additionally, he's also worth a look as a low-priced flier in daily contests if you can stomach his high-risk, high-reward recent form.

News
Hamilton scored a power-play goal and handed out two assists with a plus-2 rating, two PIM and five shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Lightning.

That's about as good as it gets, as Hamilton was involved in all of Calgary's offense despite falling short of 20 minutes on the ice. The impressive young blueliner has now hit double-digit goals in three straight seasons, and with 38 points and 173 shots through 60 games, he's set to blow by last year's career bests of 43 and 190, respectively.

News
Monahan racked up three assists Tuesday in Nashville.

Monahan's first two assists helped his team race out to an early 4-1 lead, while his final helper allowed Mark Giordano to finally close out the contest 6-5 in overtime. This performance broke a four-game point drought for the fourth-year forward, who is on pace for just 52 points after racking up at least 62 in each of the previous two seasons.

News
Bennett got a root canal and 10 stitches after taking a stick to the mouth against Nashville on Tuesday, but says he won't miss any time because of it.

In other sports, an injury of this type might require a game or two of rest. For hockey players though, it's just another day at the office. Bennett further upped his hockey rep Tuesday night by getting into a fight, but otherwise failed to impressed with just two shots on goal and a blocked shot in 12:37 of ice time.

Matthew Tkachuk, # 19
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
581130411294
 
News
Tkachuk recorded two assists during Friday's win over Florida.

The rookie is having a fantastic cross-category season and is particularly hot of late. While he has just five goals over his past 32 games, Tkachuk has stuffed the other stat columns with 29 points, 60 shots, 45 PIM, 34 hits and a plus-9 rating. There have been plenty of noteworthy freshman this year, so Tkachuk's excellent campaign might be flying under the radar. He could be undervalued in keeper/dynasty settings, and he's currently presenting excellent value in daily contests. Fantasy stardom might not be too far away considering his multi-category upside.
