  • Engelland scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 win against Arizona on Tuesday. It was a great moment as the hometown favorite Engelland buried his first goal as a Golden Knight in the team's home opener. He was fed a pass from Brendan Leipsic and drilled a one-timer past Arizona's Antti Raanta. The 35-year-old defenseman also finished the game plus-3 with a hit and a blocked shot.

  • Engelland has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports. This is an interesting selection because Engelland is due to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. Vegas owner Bill Foley said earlier Wednesday that the Golden Knights selected a pair of pending UFAs in the expansion draft but had yet to sign them. Still, it would appear likely that a deal gets done between Engelland and the first-year franchise. Either way, the veteran defender offers zero fantasy value except as a PIM specialist. He posted just 16 points for Calgary last season and turned 35 years old in April.

  • Engelland finished the season with 16 points, one off his career high set back in 2011-12 with the Penguins. Sixteen points aren't exactly earth-shattering from a fantasy standpoint, but the rearguard provided value in the deepest leagues thanks to his triple-digit shots (107), hits (135) and blocked shots (134). Engelland is no spring chicken at 35, however, so he'll likely be hard-pressed to maintain his level of contribution in the defensive categories in 2017-18.

  • Engelland scored and tallied three shots in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Penguins on Monday. The 34-year-old has four goals, and three of them have come since the All-Star break. He is now just two goals and four points shy of tying career bests with 13 contests to go. Engelland is only averaging 18:04 per game, but that's also a career high along with his 98 shots.

  • Engelland scored the game-winning goal against Florida on Friday. The veteran defenseman has only marked the scoresheet in five of his past 36 games for two goals and six points, so you cannot rely on him for offensive production in any fantasy setting. In cavernous seasonal leagues, there is some value in his 50 shots, 39 PIM, 48 hits and 55 blocked shots during that 36-game stretch, but Engelland shouldn't be confused with a priority, either. Don't fret leaving him on the waiver wire.
