  • Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Still struggling to produce
    By RotoWire Staff

    Korpikoski finished Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh with three shots and a minus-1 rating. Korpikoski has had some decent performances, but in addition to limited ice time, he's not getting many bounces. He has just one point in his last 11 games, but at least he's been putting the puck on net recently -- 13 shots in the last four contests.

  • Blue Jackets' Lauri Korpikoski: Traded to Columbus
    By RotoWire Staff

    Korpikoski was traded from the Stars to the Blue Jackets on Wednesday in exchange for defensive prospect Dillon Heatherington. Korpikoski mainly played a bottom-six role, and he'll likely slot similarly into the Jackets' high-powered offense. The 30-year-old forward netted just one goal in February, but he managed 19 shots in 11 games for the month, so the luck hasn't gone his way.

  • Korpikoski picked up two assists and went plus-2 over 11:36 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-6 road victory against the Rangers. The Finnish winger's turned out six points and a plus-6 rating over his last seven games despite only clearing 14 minutes once in that span. That's not to say that most fantasy owners should be all that interested by what Korpikoski is doing, but it is worth noting that the one-time Ranger is seeing a bit of an age-30 renaissance. With 15 points, 79 shots and a plus-7 rating through 45 games, he's roundly outperforming his production in all three categories from last season. In fact, Korpikoski hasn't finished with a positive rating since 2011-12.

  • Korpikoski got on the scoresheet with an assist Thursday in a 5-2 win over Nashville. It was the first point in seven games for the first-year Star, who actually averages a decent amount of ice time (14:02) but just doesn't get involved often offensively. He once put up a career-high 40 points back in 2010-11 with the Coyotes, but his current pace (nine in 28 games) suggests he'll land somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-30 by season's end.

  • Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Grabs goal in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Korpikoski scored his second goal of the season in a 4-2 win over the Flames on Thursday. The tally brings the depth forward up to four points and 24 shots on goal on the season, which is right around the pace of his 22-point campaign with the Oilers last year. He doesn't do much by way of other peripheral stats to offset his lack of production for fantasy purposes, so he can probably be safely avoided in the vast majority of formats.
