News
Mitchell picked up his first assist of the season in Friday's 2-1 overtime win against the Penguins.

The veteran has produced nothing on offense, and the bottom-six forward should be avoided in even the deepest of fantasy pools at this point. His only redeeming qualities at this point are his hits (65) and blocked shots (34).

News
Soderberg has just a single point in his last 23 games, giving him 11 in 57 contests this season.

Soderberg just can't seem to shake the funk that's plagued him for essentially the entire campaign. The fact that he has just a single point with the man advantage seems beyond comprehension, and his lack of power-play prowess is one reason why the former Bruin isn't going to land anywhere close to the same territory as his 51-point Avalanche debut last year.

News
Duchene scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Lightning.

Duchene is a remarkable talent, but his season has been running on Gravol. It's no secret he's on the trade block; he'll assume a top-line role no matter where he lands. And that means Duchene's value will go up fast.

News
Pickard will face pucks from the visiting Kings on Tuesday night.

Despite just one win in his last three starts, Pickard has actually looked very solid, posting an excellent .941 save percentage over that span. The problem is the lack of offensive support he receives from the team in front of him, as well as the sheer volume of shots he faces on a given night -- he's seen at least 29 shots on goal in each of his last six starts. He'll try to get it going against a Los Angeles team that he hasn't played yet this season, but sports a 1-1-0 record against in his career.

News
Colborne picked up two minor penalties Friday in an eventual 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes, getting whistled for high-sticking and slashing.

After registering 44 points in 73 games with Calgary last season, Colborne's been a colossal bust in his move to the Central Division. His time spent in the sin bin Friday could signal frustration from a campaign that's included a mere five points with a minus-17 rating over 46 contests, and he's fortunate that he didn't hurt his team with the penalties. Yeah, maybe the four PIM salvaged his fantasy night to some degree, but even that looks like an aberration as he's only spent 24 minutes in the box all year. If you've been hanging onto Colborne in hopes that he'll get it together, it's time to reconsider that train of thought.

News
Wiercioch has just 11 points and a minus-17 rating in 48 games this season.

Despite the lackluster offensive production, the veteran defenseman's 41 hits and 48 blocked shots, while modest, have him on pace for new career highs. That said, there's not much to see here from a fantasy perspective, so Wiercioch is probably best left to the waiver wire for the remainder of the season.

Injuries
Ankle - Expected to be out until at least Oct 11 (Updated - 2/21/17)
News
Zadorov (leg) was shut down for the remainder of the season Monday due to injury.

Well, that didn't take long, as the former Sabre left practice Monday morning after getting awkwardly wrapped up with teammate Mikko Rantanen. It's an unfortunately turn of events for Zadorov, but it's not likely to impact many in fantasy circles as most owners jumped ship awhile ago based on his dreadful minus-20 rating and the fact he only accumulated 10 points -- all assists -- in 56 games this year. That said, the 21-year-old's 153 hits are a new career high and could be missed in deeper formats that reward physicality.

News
Rantanen posted the game-winning goal with a plus-1 rating in Friday's 2-1 overtime win against the Hurricanes.

Rantanen is on pace for his most productive month of the season, as he has four goals with seven points through nine February games. If you can withstand his dismal minus-22 rating and lack of penalty minutes, Rantanen can be a useful option in deeper pools.

Andreas Martinsen, # 27
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
51336-730
 
News
Martinsen has three goals and three assists in 51 games this season.

As such, the depth forward is about as irrelevant as they come for fantasy purposes. He's averaged less than 10 minutes of ice time (9:30) and has skated less than five minutes combined with the man advantage all season, so Martinsen can, and should, be avoided if at all possible. His 132 hits, however, could make him of value in the very deepest of formats, though even that's probably a stretch.
