Namestnikov recorded an assist and three hits in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Namestnikov set up Michael Rasmussen's first goal of the year at 4:23 of the second period. The 28-year-old Namestnikov already has 10 points in just 17 contests, easily one of the hottest starts of his career. He's added 25 shots on net, 16 hits and a plus-4 rating in a middle-six role. With solid physical play on top of his strong scoring, the Russian could be of help in deeper fantasy formats.
