Adam Lowry averaged a career-high 16:03 of ice time per contest last season and was one of just four Jets who laced the skates up for all 82 games. While the industrious winger will likely be assigned a third-line role in 2017-18, fantasy owners may still want to give him a look as a depth option, considering that he figures to continue logging time on Winnipeg's second power-play unit. In fact, five of his 15 goals came with the man advantage a season ago. Lowry enters the 2017-18 campaign in the final year of his contract and will no doubt be motivated to have a productive season -- perhaps even breaking through the 30-point threshold -- in order to maximize his next deal.
Lowry netted the game-winning goal on the power play Sunday against the Canucks. It was the 14th tally of the season for Lowry, who has been a decent third-line contributor this year. The 23-year-old has put up a career-high 26 points and further aided owners with 50 PIM. Lowry's valuable in deep leagues as he plays on the power play, but don't expect significant offensive production given his bottom-six role and lack of scoring touch.
Lowry scored both Winnipeg goals in a 5-2 loss to Colorado on Saturday. One of the goals came on the power play. The points snapped a 12-game point dought and a 21-game goal slump. Lowry's biggest fantasy category is hits -- he has 135 in 54 games. Great day, Adam, but it's not enough to whet our fantasy whistle.
Lowry's pointless streak extended to 10 games with Thursday's win over Chicago. Lowry's drought is certainly not from a lack of opportunities as he is averaging 15:46 during this stretch, including some limited power-play minutes. Also of concern for owners is the center's limited ancillary stats -- 21 hits and 10 blocked shots. It would take a pretty significant change in performance for the 23-year-old to become fantasy relevant.
Lowry's pointless streak reached eight in a row against Edmonton on Sunday. Despite his struggles to write his name on the scoresheet, Lowry continues to log significant ice time as he has averaged 15:50 during his scoring drought. Although he is not a prolific scorer, fantasy owners likely expected more out of the center -- just eight points in 32 contests -- considering he is part of the Jets' power play.
Lowry produced two man-advantage points Sunday, helping the Jets to a 3-2 overtime win over the Kings. Lowry is a steamroller on the ice at 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds. His strength is certainly an asset for Winnipeg, but the game-to-game offensive inconsistency can be a bit maddening in the fantasy realm. The 23-year-old has four goals and two assists in 14 games.
