Slavin blocked six shots and went minus-2 in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Capitals in Game 6. Slavin has five assists in as many games in the series, and he's added 18 blocks and 11 shots on goal. His ability to contribute at both ends of the ice could make him a valuable DFS pick for Monday's Game 6.
Slavin tallied two assists -- both on the power-play -- and added five shots and two hits during Monday's 5-0 victory in Game 3 against the Capitals. Slavin has notched four assists in the last two games. The fourth-round pick from the 2012 NHL Entry Draft continues to grow into a valuable two-way defenseman for the Hurricanes as he has finished with at least 30 points in each of the last three seasons.
Slavin provided a pair of assists as well as three shots and three blocked shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals in Game 2. This is the 24-year-old's first taste of the playoffs, and it only took Slavin two games to put his name of the scoresheet. He's coming off of a regular season that saw him produce 31 points, 133 blocked shots and 146 shots on goal. Slavin is also averaging 26:57 of ice time through two games in the playoffs, so while he is defensively-oriented, he'll have plenty of chances to chip in on offense as well.
Slavin scored a goal for the second straight game -- this time on the power play -- in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Penguins. He also had five shots on goal, two hits and a pair of blocked shots. In the process, the 24-year-old blueliner managed to crack the 30-point plateau for a second consecutive season, and now owns an identical stat line to last year (8G, 22A) with three games left to play. Slavin may not be an elite scoring defenseman in the NHL, but he's about as consistent as they come -- and that's worth its weight in gold in fantasy terms.
Slavin played his seventh straight game without a point Friday against the Blue Jackets. Slavin generated a lot of fantasy interest back in January with a nice run of 12 points in 15 games, but he's been very quiet since then, with just three points in his last 17 contests. Now at 28 points on the season with 12 games remaining, he will likely finish with something resembling the 30 points he registered last season. Slavin remains a decent, lower-tier blue-line option in deeper fantasy formats.
