  • Dadonov (shoulder) will return to the Panthers' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, John Dietz of the Daily Herald reports. This news comes as a complete surprise, as Dadonov is only a little over two weeks into his projected four-to-six week recovery timetable. Nonetheless, the Panthers and fantasy owners will both welcome the Russian forward back into their lineups with open arms, as he's been productive when healthy this campaign, tallying seven goals and 18 points in 22 contests. He'll slot into a top-six role Tuesday against Chicago, skating with Jamie McGinn and Vincent Trocheck on Florida's second line.

  • Dadonov (shoulder) has been ruled out for the next four-to-six weeks, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports. After Dadonov underwent an MRI on Sunday his ailment was found to be worse than previously anticipated, moving back his projected return to around the New Year. The 28-year-old is in the midst of his first season in North America since 2011-12 after playing in the KHL the last five seasons, and was off to a hot start in Florida notching 18 points in 22 games, including an impressive seven multi-point efforts. Denis Malgin, just 20 years old, will play Monday on the first line in Dadonov's absence, and figures to get an extended look in Florida's top six.

  • Dadonov scored the game-tying goal in the second period and assisted on Ian McCoshen's game-winner in a 4-1 Friday win over Buffalo. Dadonov broke a three-game pointless streak with his multi-point night. Incredibly, every game except the season opener has seen Dadonov either score multiple points or fail to get on the scoresheet at all. Given his tendency for peaks and valleys, he's very much a high-risk, high-reward play in DFS situations.

  • Panthers' Evgeny Dadonov: Remarkable scoring punch
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dadonov scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Red Wings. Dadonov's white-hot start continues -- he now has 11 points in 10 games. The 28-year-old spent the last five seasons in the KHL where he grew his game to a 66-point effort in 53 games. Dadonov will hit a plateau at some point given the massive increase in number of games, but for now, he's a great fantasy play.

  • Panthers' Evgeny Dadonov: Beats goalie twice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dadonov found the back of the net twice during an 8-3 win over Anaheim on Thursday. In his first season back in the NHL since 2011-12, Dadonov is off to a great start, scoring four goals and nine points in as many games. The 28-year-old registered just 20 points in his NHL career prior to this season. Chances are, Dadonov will surpass that mark by a pretty good margin.
