Brodin has three assists, 27 blocked shots and is averaging 21:24 of ice time since the new year. Known for his defensive specialties, Brodin has certainly lived up to the bill with a whopping 27 blocks in 18 games since the new year. As evidenced by his three assists, the Swede can chip in every once in a while with offense, but his value lies on the other end of the rink. The 25-year-old should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup, but the Wild still value the defenseman.
Brodin has two assists, 19 blocked shots and is a minus-2 since the new year. Even though Brodin hasn't produced as much offensively, he has been a goalie's best friend, racking up 19 blocked shots in his past 11 games. The Wild still clearly value the 25-year-old defenseman, as evidenced by his 20:32 of ice time per game.
Brodin failed to record a point in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Flames. The 25-year-old's current pace has him recording a point every fourth game, making him a high-risk fantasy play by most standards. However, Brodin was able to make a minor dent in the box score with his efforts, tallying a shot on goal and blocking three more. The Swede also dished out a hit and picked up a minor penalty in the loss. On the season, he has three goals and seven points in 28 games.
Brodin went minus-4 in Tuesday's 4-3 home loss to the Coyotes. Brodin was on the ice for more Arizona goals than any other player, and what's troubling is that he's not producing enough offense to compensate for the occasional off-night in the defensive zone. Brodin has three goals and four assists over 24 games, and being left off the power play has squashed what little fantasy value he had to begin with.
Brodin posted a goal, two points, a plus-4 rating and five shots on goal in a 5-2 victory against the Ducks on Friday. The multi-point night snapped a five-game pointless streak and doubled his point total for the season. Brodin's had a lot of negative plus-minus nights heading into this one, but the plus-4 rating Friday erases all that in one fell swoop. He's now at plus-2 for the season. Recently, Brodin is getting a lot more shots to the net, so don't be surprised if this is the beginning of a scoring spree.
