Goligoski picked up a helper and fired three shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Avalanche. The assist snapped a six-game point drought for the blueliner, who has earned 27 points (three goals, 24 apples) in 72 games this year. His points-per-game pace of 0.38 is the lowest of Goligoski's career. At 33 years old, it's not a huge surprise to see him slowing down.
Goligoski assisted on two power-play goals in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Ducks. The defender has six points, all helpers, in his last 16 games, giving him 26 points in 65 outings this season. Goligoski has ended up in the mid-30s for points in each of the last four seasons, but he'll have to pick up the pace to reach that mark this year.
Goligoski scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Dallas. By season's end, Goligoski will likely hit the mid-30s in points. That's painfully consistent -- it would be the fifth straight season he lands at that level. Goligoski does have some fantasy value, but it's one-dimensional. Other than Saturday, he just doesn't deliver enough on the power play. He had only three power-play points prior to this game.
Goligoski picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Predators. Goligoski assisted on Vinnie Hinostroza's ninth goal of the season that opened up the scoring, but Nashville responded by scoring the game's next three goals, adding two more before all was said and done in a 5-2 loss for the Coyotes. The helper gives Goligoski 18 points on the season. Also worth noting is the fact that he nearly missed Tuesday's game after suffering a concussion Monday, however, Goligoski was able to pass baseline testing prior to puck drop.
Goligoski (upper body) is on the ice for warmups Tuesday in Nashville, Dave Vest of NHL.com reports. Goligoski's presence in warmups suggests he'll suit up one day after suffering an upper-body injury. The veteran blueliner should munch plenty of minutes for the Coyotes, even if his 17 points and minus-11 rating in 46 games haven't moved the needle much in the fantasy realm.
