Clifford did it all with a goal, an assist, and 17 PIM in a 3-1 win over the Coyotes on Tuesday. Clifford dropped the mitts with Lawson Crouse early in the first period to get the fight out of the way, adding an instigator minor and misconduct in the process. Then, he tied the game with his goal with only 0.2 seconds remaining in the second period before assisting on Trevor Lewis' third-period game-winner. Clifford has 20 points for the first time in his career, as well as 86 PIM and 111 hits in 70 appearances this season.
Clifford delivered an assist, four shots and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against the Blackhawks. Clifford has a goal and two helpers as well as 10 shots and seven PIM in his last five outings. For the year, he's at 17 points in 68 games, adding 106 shots and 69 PIM. He may have some appeal in deeper formats while he's on the third line, as he's skated 14 minutes or more in five of his last six appearances.
Clifford registered an assist in Monday's 3-0 win over the Flames. The helper gives Clifford points in consecutive games and 16 points (nine goals, seven assists) in 65 outings this season. He also has 106 hits and 100 shots this year, and may have some value in particularly deep formats while deployed as a bottom-six forward.
Clifford found twine on the power play and added three shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Ducks. Clifford's tally gave him 15 points in 64 contests, matching his career high from 2014-15. It's the first time he's scored on the man advantage in his nine-year career, which is no surprise given he's only averaged five seconds of power-play time per game this season. Clifford fairly reliably registers a point total in the low teens -- he's a decent fourth-liner but not much more than that.
Clifford committed a five-minute fighting major in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Jets. Clifford jumped off the bench and went right after Nathan Beaulieu for an early third-period tussle. The former only has one point (a goal) in the past month -- a span of 14 games -- and chances are his penalty from this game barely moved the needle in most fantasy settings. Clifford has 14 points (eight goals, six assists) to supplement 103 hits and 21 blocked shots over 62 games this season.
