  • Girardi finished with an assist and a plus-3 rating during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders. The plus-3 stands out on a night where Tampa Bay surrendered five goals and looked oddly mortal. The heavyweight defender is worth a look in deeper formats that reward his contributions in hits (31) and blocked shots (46), but he remains a reach in standard formats.

  • Girardi has two assists in his last four games. Unfortunately, he has just one more in his previous 14 games. Girardi is valuable on the ice, but not in the fantasy arena.

    Girardi is still searching for his first point as a member of the Lightning. The bottom-pairing defenseman has only set 11 shots on goal, and he's logging 17:12 of ice time, which is his lowest mark since entering the league with the Rangers in 2006-07. Girardi is likely someone you can cut bait with in favor of a surging waiver acquisition in shallow leagues.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Girardi signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Lightning on Saturday, TSN reports. Girardi was bought out of his previous contract by the Rangers, which reportedly saved the Blueshirts approximately $2.9 million in cap space for the 2017-18 season. The 33-year-old will embark on his 12th year in the NHL, but this will be his first with the any other team but the Rangers. He's collected 230 points (46 goals, 184 assists) in 788 career games and assuredly will be in a top-four role, if not the right-hand man to prized rearguard Victor Hedman on the top pair.

  • Rangers' Dan Girardi: Posts 15-point campaign
    By RotoWire Staff

    Girardi managed just four goals and 11 assists while going plus-8 over 63 games this past season. The veteran blueliner saw his lowest average ice time (19:06) since his rookie season, continuing his pattern of steady decline. Girardi's still willing to put his body in front of plenty of pucks and get tough to protect his goalie, but his near-total lack of offensive ability makes him a fantasy liability, and his decreasing usage seems to indicate that all that physical play has taken its toll over the years.
