    • Mathew Barzal NYI C
      Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Garners assist Sunday
      5m ago

      Barzal picked up an assist versus Dallas on Sunday and extended his point streak to five games.

      While Barzal has struggled to find the back of the net (just two goals in 19 outings), he certainly hasn't has a problem finding his teammates sticks with 16 assists on the year. Of his 18 points this season, half have come on the power play, where he is logging four minutes of ice time per game.

      Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Playing well in QMJHL
      5m ago

      Veleno racked up four assists in QMJHL Drummondville's 6-1 win over Sherbrooke on Sunday.

      Once viewed as a potential top-ten pick, concerns surrounding Veleno's long-term upside led to him plummeting to the bottom of the first round (30th overall) in this past June's draft. Detroit quickly snatched up him at that point and Veleno has responded with 27 points and 85 shots on goal in his first 20 games for Drummondville this season. A strong skater who is responsible defensively, Veleno has a chance to turn into a solid, two-way center at the NHL level.

      Blackhawks' Dominik Kahun: Scores goal versus Minnesota
      8m ago

      Kahun notched a goal in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Wild.

      Kahun sealed the win with an empty-netter which ended a 16-game goal drought. With his productivity falling off, the winger has averaged just nine second of power-play ice time in his last five outings -- a far cry from the 1:44 per game during October.

      Senators' Alex Formenton: Playing well since return to OHL
      12m ago

      Formenton picked up a hat trick in OHL London's 6-3 win over Erie on Sunday.

      Formenton, who began the year in Ottawa, now has six goals in six games since being reassigned to the junior ranks. The speedster is ticketed for a key role on the Canadian World Junior team next month. Expect Formenton to earn a full-time role with the Sens next season.

      Penguins' Derick Brassard: Minus-2 versus Sens
      15m ago

      Brassard returned from a nine-game stint on the sidelines against Ottawa on Saturday and tallied a minus-2 rating and two blocks in 15:37 of ice time.

      It was an underwhelming return to action for Brassard considering he tallied four helpers in his two outings prior to getting hurt. The center will need to step up his offensive production if the Pens are going to turn their season around. Once Sidney Crosby (upper body) gets the green light to play, Brassard could find himself back on the wing of Sid the Kid.

      18m ago

      Dube logged a mere 6:05 of ice time in his first game back from injury versus Edmonton on Saturday.

      Dube failed to register any significant stats versus the Oilers while slotting into a third-line role. If the 20-year-old doesn't find a way to secure more minutes, the club could decide to demote him to AHL Stockton if only to get him some additional play time.

      Henrique had an assist during Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado on Sunday.

      Henrique picked up a point in his second consecutive game after being blanked in his three previous contests. The assist was the centers sixth of the year as Henrique now has 10 points in 22 games this season.

      Getzlaf fired his fifth multi-point night of the year during the overtime loss on Sunday. The center now has five goals and nine assists through 16 games, just missing out on a point-per-game pace so far this year.

      Panthers' Micheal Haley: Added to roster
      23m ago

      Haley (personal) has been added to the active roster and taken of non-roster, injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

      It's not clear whether Haley will immediately slot into the lineup against the Senators on Monday, but he is at least an option for the Senators now following his conditioning assignment in the minors. Considering the Ontario native managed just nine points in 75 games last year, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on heavy offensive production from him once he does hit the ice.

      Aberg now has a point in back-to-back games after a slow start to the year. The assist doubled his season total, as Aberg now has eight points through 16 games, a half-point-per-game pace.

      Rantanen picked up his ninth multi-point game of the season, upping his total to a league-leading 32 points through 20 games. The winger has set the NHL standard with 24 assists, while the game-winning goal in overtime was Rantanen's eighth of the season.

      Landeskog secured his sixth multi-point outing of the season en route to the overtime win Sunday. The goal was the winger's 13th of the season, tying him for the third-highest goal-scoring total in the league through 20 games. The assist was No. 9 on the year as the captain upped his point total to 22.

      Nemeth picked up his first helper since Opening Night, doubling his season total in the process. Still, the bottom-pairing defenseman is not much of a fantasy option, with only two points in 15 games this year.

      Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Two apples in win
      11h ago

      Theodore registered two assists en route to a 6-3 road victory over the Oilers on Sunday.

      Theodore's blue-line partner, Nate Schmidt, returned from a 20-game suspension Sunday. Schmidt is adept at setting up goals, and the B.C. native naturally figures to be a primary beneficiary. Theodore has scored twice to go along with eight helpers of his own through 21 games this season.

      Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Held in check offensively in return
      12h ago

      Schmidt (suspension) made his season debut against the Oilers on Sunday, recording 19:38 of ice time but failing to mark the scoresheet in a 6-3 road win.

      It looks like it's going to take some time for Schmidt to fully shake off the rust, even though he did practice with a Vienna-based team during his suspension. The American averaged 22:14 in Vegas' magical inaugural season, and it's probably only a matter of time before he's on the same page as Shea Theodore on the second defensive pair. The Golden Knights only have nine wins in 21 games this season, but the return of Schmidt -- who is featured in both special-teams situations -- could lead to a strong finish to the calendar year for the young club.

      Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Enjoys three-point night

      Miller set up three goals (one on the power play) in Sunday's 6-3 road win over the Oilers.

      The fourth-year defenseman delivered all of those helpers in succession, with the Golden Knights ringing up three straight tallies after Max Pacioretty bounced the puck off Matt Benning's skate for the go-ahead goal early in the second period. Miller took a hard slap shot to the shin in Friday's game against the Blues, but he doubled his season-long point total Sunday and is obviously none the worse for wear.

      The win moves Grubauer to 4-1-2 as Colorado's primary backup to Semyon Varlamov. Considering the German started the last two games, Avs coach Jared Bednar may turn back to Varly on Wednesday for a road game against the Kings, but it would be best to wait for official confirmation of such an assignment.

      Despite Vegas producing five unanswered goalies between the second and third periods, Oilers coach Todd McLellan decided against giving Talbot the heave-ho. Still, Edmonton's supposed No. 1 netminder has now lost five straight games and he has Mikko Koskinen breathing down his neck for starting opportunities.

      Fleury set aside 29 shots in Sunday's 6-3 road win over the Oilers.

      Connor McDavid scored less than a minute into this contest and Alex Chiasson struck on the power play (also in the first period), which probably left Fleury owners worried that the Flower would wilt. However, the Vegas skaters supported him with five unanswered goals, and the celebrated backstop worked a flawless second frame to mitigate his third goal against from Leon Draisaitl. Fleury improves to 9-8-1 on the season, but the butterfly tender can't be content with his .901 save percentage through 18 games.

      Since losing five in a row, Crawford has played very well for the Blackhawks. Chicago's primary netminder is 2-0-1 in his last three starts, giving up just a pair of goals in the process. On the season, he owns a 5-6-1 record with a 2.44 GAA and a .923 save percentage this season.
