  • Desharnais collected three assists through 14:58 of ice time during Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Florida. With Mika Zibanejad (upper body) out of action Tuesday, Desharnais slotted in between Chris Kreider and Pavel Buchnevich, and the trio combined for three goals. It's unlikely this outing does much to boost Desharnais' limited fantasy value for the long term, but it's not out of the question to suggest the veteran will provide a fleeting uptick for the duration of Zibanejad's absence. It's a situation to keep tabs on at the very least.

  • Desharnais will watch Sunday's contest against Ottawa from the press box as a healthy scratch. The former Hab is scoreless with a minus-3 rating and zero shots on goal in his past three contests, so the decision doesn't come as a complete surprise. Desharnais' absence makes room for Paul Carey, who's scored two points in a 40-game NHL career.

His first-period helper on Jimmy Vesey's second goal in a 29-second span gave the diminutive Desharnais eight points in 17 games with his new club.

  • Desharnais recorded a goal and an assist during Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh. After missing the scoresheet in the first five games of the campaign, Desharnais now has a goal and two helpers in his past two outings. He's bounced around the depth chart a bit too much to be counted on in most settings. However, the veteran has clearly established some quick chemistry with J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider on the second line, and Desharnais' fantasy value would spike if he locked himself into the role for a prolonged stretch.

  • Desharnais agreed to a contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period reports. Desharnais split last season between Montreal and Edmonton after a late-February trade sent him to the Oilers. Currently 30 years old, there's no guarantee the center will be able to secure a spot on the NHL roster when the season begins.
