Pageau scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's NHL100 Classic against the Canadiens. The Senators won 3-0. Pageau delivered a sweet tip on an Erik Karlsson low wrist shot from the right point. It was just Pageau's second point in his last 13 games and that makes him a non-viable fantasy option right now.
Pageau scored a goal in Thursday's overtime loss to the Kings. Pageau picked up the rebound off a shot from the point and backhanded it past the outstretched blocker of Darcy Kuemper for his third goal of the year, with the tally ending a nine-game goalless streak for the center. Despite the slump, the Ontario native is actually on pace to better his output from last season, when he racked up 33 points in 82 outings.
Pageau recorded an assist and won eight of eleven faceoffs during Saturday's 4-3 triumph over the Avalanche. The pesky forward is producing at a fairly high clip with a goal and nine points in 16 games thus far in 2017-18. Still, Pageau's value is likely to remain limited to deeper leagues, where his contributions in hits (32) and blocked shots (15) are more rewarded.
Pageau tallied two assists and added a shorthanded goal in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Flyers. The 5-foot-10 center also racked up five hits in his terrific performance. Pageau totaled a season-high 20:54 of ice time, so there may be some correlation with his scoring. The 24-year-old is still more of a physical player than a scorer and his fantasy value shouldn't change much despite the big night.
Pageau assisted on Dion Phaneuf's opening goal in Tuesday's loss to Los Angeles. Pageau has had a slow start to the season, managing just three assists in nine contests. The third-line center put up 33 points last season, but is too inconsistent to be trusted in most fantasy leagues. He's a great depth scorer when he's at his best, so if he catches fire, take notice and snatch him up temporarily in a deeper format.
