Predators' Matt Irwin: Seeing extra ice time as injury sub

Irwin went minus-2 in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Stars, but he contributed three shots on goal, three hits and a pair of blocked shots.

With just 18 games under his belt, Irwin has frequently been a healthy scratch this season. However, with Yannick Weber now on IR with an undisclosed injury, he could start to see more regular ice time on the third defensive pair opposite Dan Hamhuis. Either way, the 30-year-old has never recorded more than 19 points in a single NHL season, and he should not be counted on for significant fantasy production at this point in his career.
