Pysyk posted an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Golden Knights. The defenseman-turned-winger ended a five-game point drought with his assist. Pysyk has now matched his career high in points with 17, which he also achieved in his first year with the Panthers (2016-17). The 28-year-old has added 44 hits, 35 blocks and 56 shots in 51 games this year. Outside of positional flexibility, there's little reason for fantasy owners to consider Pysyk for their rosters.
Pysyk scored a goal and added two assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils. The Panthers' makeshift fourth line of Noel Acciardi between two converted blueliners in Pysyk and Mike Matheson came through with another huge effort, as the trio combined for three goals and eight points on the night. Pysyk recorded a hat trick Feb. 3 but he has no other points in his last eight games, and the 28-year-old is a risky fantasy option regardless of his role.
Pysyk scored a hat trick on three shots and was plus-2 in Monday's 5-3 win over Toronto. That was one of the most unlikely hat tricks in recent NHL history. Playing forward due to injuries, Pysyk scored on all three of his shots, including an empty-netter, to key Florida's comeback from a 3-1 deficit. The 27-year-old entered the night with just 17 goals in 398 career games and had never scored more than four in a single season. Suddenly, he has seven goals and 13 points in 40 games. We wouldn't advise fantasy owners to chase this box score, but it is worth noting that Pysyk has nine points (five goals, four assists) in 11 games since New Year's Eve.
Pysyk registered an assist in Monday's 5-4 win over the Wild. Pysyk supplied the secondary helper on Noel Acciari's game-winner in the dying seconds of the third period. The 27-year-old has now produced two goals and four assists in his last eight games. Pysyk is up to 10 points and 41 shots on goal in 37 appearances this season.
Pysyk notched an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Maple Leafs. Pysyk has a goal and three helpers with a plus-4 rating in his last four appearances. He's been used as a left wing lately, and the results are beginning to show, although he's limited to a fourth-line role. Through 34 contests, Pysyk has eight points, 35 shots and 16 PIM this season.
