  • Dowd will make his Canucks debut Saturday night against the Flames. Pried away from the Kings in a trade for defenseman Jordan Subban late Thursday night, Dowd should occupy a bottom-six role in his debut. He logged 1:34 of ice time on the power play with the Kings last season, but it remains to be seen if he'll garner man-advantage minutes in his new digs. Either way, we advise that you take a wait-and-see approach with the man who's only recorded 23 points (six goals, 17 assists) in 91 career contests at hockey's highest level.

  • Canucks' Nic Dowd: Dealt to Vancouver
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Kings traded Dowd to the Canucks on Thursday night in exchange for defenseman Jordan Subban. This deal, which was made during the middle of the night, means Dowd has the potential for an increased role in his new digs. Born in Alabama, the center had only been averaging 7:57 of ice time in Los Angeles. Whether he garners enough rink run to be fantasy relevant remains to be seen, but this is a situation worth monitoring for those in extremely deep leagues.

  • Kings' Nic Dowd: Can't land regular role
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dowd has served as a healthy scratch in nine of the Kings' 21 outings this season. In addition to watching from the press box periodically, Dowd is also struggling to get on the ice, as he is averaging a paltry 7:58 of ice time. Not surprisingly, the Alabama native has notched just one helper, four blocks and 20 hits in his limited minutes. The center's absence from the lineup could be further compounded once Jeff Carter (ankle) is cleared to play.

  • Kings' Nic Dowd: Uninspiring performance Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dowd committed two giveaways in Sunday's 3-2 home win over the Islanders, though he did have a pair of hits and a blocked shot over 9:45 of ice time. This counted as the fourth-liner's first time playing in consecutive contests to start the new season. It will be very difficult to rely on him in fantasy since he's playing so sparingly and causing turnovers.

  • Kings' Nic Dowd: Finds twine in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dowd scored his sixth goal of the season in a 6-4 win over Edmonton on Tuesday. He's got an ugly minus-16 rating this year, but the 26-year-old rookie has still managed a respectable 21 points -- including eight on the power play. The Alabama native has done so while averaging a modest 12:27 of ice time over 68 games, so perhaps Dowd will be able to develop further next season if his role increases.
