Rakell scored a goal on four shots and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights. Rakell opened the scoring at 10:09 of the first period, and he later assisted on Adam Henrique's third-period tally. This was Rakell's first multi-point effort of the year. The Swede has struggled to two goals and nine points through 21 appearances. He's added 65 shots on net and 26 hits, but fantasy managers who are still holding Rakell will hope Saturday's outing sparks a surge of scoring for the inconsistent winger.
Rakell generated an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks. Rakell set up Maxime Comtois' tally in the third period. The 27-year-old Rakell has seven points, 51 shots on net and 23 hits through 16 games this season. He's shooting under two percent -- a high-volume shooter like Rakell should eventually be able to break his early-season slump.
Rakell provided an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Golden Knights. Rakell got the puck behind the net and centered for Maxime Comtois, who scored the game's lone goal with a well-placed shot past Marc-Andre Fleury. The 27-year-old Rakell saw his goal drought continue to nine games, but he's racked up a modest four assists in that span. Through 15 outings this season, Rakell has six points, 49 shots on net and 23 hits. His shooting percentage isn't going to hover around two percent all season, but fantasy managers aren't likely to have much patience with the inconsistent winger.
Rakell managed an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Golden Knights. Rakell's shot attempt was tipped in by Ryan Getzlaf to tie the game at 4-4 in the third period. The 27-year-old Rakell has dropped down to the third line at even strength, partly because he has just five points in 14 contests this year. The Swede has provided 47 shots on net and 20 hits, but playing in a middle-six role on a weak offense limits Rakell's fantasy value to deeper formats.
Rakell produced an assist in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Sharks. Rakell set up Maxime Comtois' first of two goals in the game at 18:22 of the second period. That gave the Ducks a 3-1 lead at the time. Rakell has struggled to regularly produce offense with just a goal and three helpers in 12 outings. He has 37 shots on net, 15 hits and a minus-6 rating this year, and he skated on the third line in Friday's contest. His fantasy value will be limited to his physical contributions while he remains in a bottom-six role for the league's 30th-ranked offense (1.92 goals per game).
